Now, why would I want to do that to myself? Like building and maintaining a blog with almost weekly posts isn’t enough of a responsibility? The short answer is that I have more to say about an entirely different subject than this blog on my personal meanderings can handle. My new genre is on how to take action to preserve the health of the planet in the age of climate change and other environmental degradation. This form of activism is by making small lifestyle changes.
I started chipping away on the concept of my new blog “One Sweet Earth” in late 2019 with the hopes of a New Year’s launch. That was wishful thinking as I forgot how daunting building a new blog can be. Selecting the right theme, how to build a menu with categories and pages is daunting enough without wrestling with WordPress’s new block editor. Then there’s writing content and in this case illustrating it. A good portion of “One Sweet Earth” is in my sketchbook.
