I smoked, but I didn’t inhale…
I have been thinking about this blog of mine lately.
Thinking, but not actively blogging, as some of you’ve astutely pointed out.
Which is sad, as there has been SO MUCH that’s happened lately about which I coulda, shoulda, woulda, blogged.
A New Place.
A New-To-Me Car.
A New Office.
A New Batch of First Years.
And lots of other Wonderful Life Events…
Which has prompted a bit of a mental re-working of this wee blog, and a pledge to do a little better.
You see, as the title of this post insinuates, I’d had a bit of a puff at blogging in this space. You know, cos all the cool kids on the playground were doing it. And it looked so cool a glamorous in the films...and I was curious to try it.
I liked that first little puff, but not quite enough to go out and buy a pack of my own, if that analogy makes sense (true story: I explained Foucault to first year using the solar system as an analogy…let’s see how many students write about asteroids, black holes, and moons in their assessment, instead of power/knowledge, discipline, and the embodied subject!). Overall, I was having fun with this blog, but I wasn’t willing to make the commitment.
Namely, I wasn’t willing to overcome years of not being able to take a decent photograph (in front of, or behind, the lens) in order to really enter into the blogging spirit. And, you know…there’s a limit to how much one can write about fashion and style. Even moi.
But, with a bit of rethinking, I have come to the conclusion that it’s time to stop puffing, and start inhaling. I’m going to light up this blog and smoke it.
Not without a few new developments, though. This is a heads up that, along with lots and lots of…erm…interesting (read: inexpert) photos, you can expect posts – a fresh one every Monday, on a widened range of topics, including, but not limited to...
Handy Household Hints.
Musing on Interior Decoration.
Funny things that Happened to a Friend of a Friend of Mine.
Music, Movies, Books, Telly.
Foucauldian Social Theory…OK JUST KIDDING. I won’t do that to you, unless you are in first year.
So, dear readers, this is the beginning of what I hope will be a whole-hearted, long-term, hard-to-shake-even-with-patches addictive venture for myself and maybe for you too. Stay tuned next Monday for a freshly lit post, and until then, happy lifestyling.
