Here and Not There
For a little over a year, I've been blogging with Melissa Clark at theskinnythebook.com. We blogged because we wrote a book called The Skinny, and over the year and a quarter we spent blogging, a nice community formed. Blogging with them was great, and blogging on a specific range of topics -- habits of eating and cooking, ideas about beauty and the body -- was great, too. But each of us started to feel a little tapped out, a little like we'd come to the end of something. But it's hard to end something particularly when there are others who like to come by and see what you're up to on that something, in this case the "something" is the old blog. And it's hard to start something new, in this case a new blog, when you're not sure what you're doing or if anyone will stop by and see what it is you're trying to do. In this case, the "you" in all those sentences is me. So, I hope the women that I'd come to know on our old blog will stop by this one. Sometimes, starting something new is the best thing you can do. One hopes.
