I am so excited to tell you about my latest project. I have launched a gardening website, blog- whatever you'd like to call it. I have been thinking about pursuing writing for quite some time. It's one of those things that just sounds sort of silly, "I want to be a writer." I don't know why I think it's silly; obviously, many people are successful writers. I guess I felt that if I put myself out there, people would think I was taking myself too seriously, or something along those lines. Anyhow, I have been dabbling with this idea for a few years now. I just had no idea what I wanted to write about. I like writing about our day-trips and travels, but the problem with pursuing travel writing is- well, you have to actually travel! I have two small kids, which makes it hard to leave the house, let alone travel enough to keep the content fresh! It wasn't until a few weeks ago, when I was out watering my garden, that I thought, "I should write about this!" From that exact minute, I have had garden writing on the brain. With the help of an old friend, whom I reconnected with on facebook, I bought a domain name, web-hosting, and immediately dived in. Stacey Lawlis, if you are reading this- you are a complete wizard at all things technology.
My new website is: Girl Has Thyme. I'm still tweaking it, but it's nearly where I want it to be. I was going to wait to launch it until it was formatted perfectly, but given that we are nearing peak gardening season, I thought I'd just get it out there. Anyhow, I'm so excited about it! It's categorized in a manner that will make it easy for me to write often (hopefully daily during the busy garden months). From all that I have read, to become a writer- all you have to do is write. So that is what I'm going to do. I have no idea where it will take me, but I feel like I'm committing to a project that is truly representative of me. I hope you enjoy it- and then share it with everyone and anyone!
Oh, and don't worry- this blog isn't going anywhere. This will be where I share the personal stuff- how the kids are doing, day-trips, etc. But, if you want to know anything about my garden life and ramblings, you will need to check out my new website. I know, I know... that's a whole lot of Jenny. Hope you can handle it!
