So Who the Heck Am I?

So it appears the first step on this whole personal journey thing, is to figure out who I am, really. 
I've been reading and writing like crazy lately.  I'm completely unsettled.  I'm pretty sure that's a good thing.  Although it can be a little annoying that I can't slow my brain down, there's a part of me that hopes that it doesn't!

I know a few things:
  • I need a new home online - a new blog that represents my journey a little bit better.
  • I need to keep writing.
  • I need to stay motivated.
  • I need to love what I'm writing about, so I can do the last two
  • I need to figure out how to make at least a little money at it
  • I need a NAME!
A few things I don't know:
  • I love travel, diving, cooking, gardening, photography, living a simpler life, knitting - can I integrate all/most of these things without it being too much or all over the place?
  • A blog name!! 
  • Lots of other stuff
Well, I'm getting somewhere, I think.  The one I'm struggling with the most is that blog name one.  I know I need something more general than knit n' diver, because that puts it in too small of a niche, and I don't really talk that much about knitting anymore anyway.  But I don't want to use my real name, nobody will ever find it!  So that's where I'm stuck.  Any suggestions?


  1. Sometimes I think about completely turning my blog around too. I look forward to seeing what you pick!!

  2. Oh, and when I tried to think of a new blog name I kept coming back to your line about "living a simple life", which I think is so admirable. Maybe something like "Living a simple life" or "Simple Adventures" or something? Just an idea! :)

  3. Those are great ideas Christen! I do like the thought of incorporating "simple" in there. Thanks!
