Musings of a One-Year Blogger
Some of you, possibly most of you, are coming from my previous blog. I intended to keep the name, but the more I ruminated on what I wanted this blog to be, I realized that I would have to step away and begin anew.
Last year I struggled to find a blogging niche, and didn’t recognize what I wanted to create until summer turned to fall. I began to put little stories to my outfit posts, and I received a wonderful response. And I thought, “I FINALLY know what I want to blog about!”
Then writing stories became harder week after week. I wasn’t able to put the time into the posts I wanted, and I missed writing about other topics.
Temperatures dropped and my health deteriorated (I have Lyme’s disease) so I put all posting on hold. I worked to learn my photo editor and to figure exactly how I would present my work so that it made sense.
I was sure I wanted to style outfits. I wanted to write about real life. I also wanted to share my creative work of photography and writing, all while inspiring others to be creative as well. I wanted to explore the world through style, writing, and photography, but I had no clue how to explain it to anyone.
Charting the Adventure
So how does one spindle the wind?
It is rather an impossible task…
…But perhaps I can take the wild and invisible and catch traces of it like fallen strands of silk, twist it around my spindle, slip it into a pen and weave it into words on a page.
Maybe I will glimpse a tremor in the air and seal the moment away in a photograph.
I might slip into an outfit one day, and found that it has woven itself into the fabric I am wearing.
This is Wind & Spindle, the chronicles of my adventures as I explore the world through the aesthetics of words, style, and photography.
I cannot guarantee that it will be the most extraordinary thing you have seen and read, but I want to have fun on the journey, and I hope you will too.
I’m excited for this new journey, and excited to spend it with the daydreamers who join me.
The adventure starts now.
