Over at Raising Five today, Katherine continued the conversation about commenting on blogs. I linked to her previous post about Checking the Box, but she has a further insight I hope all my new-to-bloggin' friends will check out as well!
So within her post, Katherine makes mention of checking out blogs based on unique blog titles, and wonders "why on earth someone would name their blog 'SortaCrunchy' "? hee hee hee. Great question!
One of my big plans for blogging is to play around and fix this place up so it's more user/reader-friendly. I have even thought about packing up and moving to WordPress, but I just can't quite commit yet. Anyway, if I ever do get around to gettin fixed up, one thing I want to include is a little background on why SortaCrunchy . . .
When I first started this blog, I had chosen "sortacrunchy" as my screenname on a private mommy board on which I am very active. I didn't take too much time back then to explain why I had chosen that name because all of my friends on that message board know that I really am pretty much a sort of crunchy kind of mama. And because to this day my message board friends comprise about 98.9% of my readership, I have been sort of lackadaisical in taking the time to share with any other readers who have clicked over here what makes me a sortacrunchy kind of lady.
D and I are headed out of town at this very moment, so I don't have the time to go into as much detail as I had hoped to (when I started this entry three hours ago!). Here's an excerpt from one of my very first posts that shares a snippet of background:
In this blog, I am hoping to be able to share some information on natural parenting practices that I have taken up in the past 18 months. Some of the NP stuff I am into include cloth diapering, babywearing, and extended breastfeeding. I hope to also share information on circumcision, vaccinations, homeschooling (and unschooling) and other topics relevant to NP.
In my next entry (whenever that might be! hopefully later this week) I want to go into this a little further. But if anyone should happen to click over from Raising Five today, I hope this will serve as a brief explanation as to why on earth . . . :)
