Welcome to my very first post. First posts are hard, almost as hard as picking a name. With a first post, you wonder if you should do an intro, or perhaps just jump in. Maybe you are not even sure what the blog will be like exactly. With a name, however, you are defined. You could change it, maybe… sort of. However, for those who see the blog the name will set both a tone and expectations.
Why did I choose “Think About the Box”?
Well, I think that we spend too much time thinking outside of it. Sure it is “different”, or at least it was when they started doing it. However, I agree that the what is inside of it has received a lot of attention, since the direction was trying to move away. This blog will be about thinking of “the box” in a new way (or for the first time.) Maybe you are a crafter, looking for a new way to look at different materials. Maybe you are an eco warrior, looking for ways to manage your own carbon footprint, and sick of monitoring everyone else’s. Maybe you are a new (or expectant) mother, focusing on your changing self and you new little one.
The box is all those things. I want to think about them differently.
This week I will have a series of posts about new mommyhood, covering topics such as nursing, co sleeping and baby wearing. Next week I will focus on my different crafts and art forms I create/enjoy/attempt. These next two weeks will be like an introduction, and after that, I will chronicle my days, activities and adventures. I hope this blog will be not only educational, but inspirational. Now the blog is bare and simple, both in visuals and content. I hope that you will stay and grow with us.
