Let the Blogging Begin

First Blog…well, it wasn't long ago that I said, "Blog what?" Now, I'm starting my own. I also just learned about Tweeters. This is making me sound old already. Okay, so all these firsts for me are exciting and scary at the same time. I just had my first child, a healthy baby boy. I started my first business, a green living store, strictly ecommerce so I am blessed to work from home. I started my first compost pile, more on that later. I started my first Bible study in my home, but that isn't necessarily business related. And I've been genuinely going green for the first time in my life.

What do I want to blog about? The word blog reminds me of blah, blah, blah…So, I will definitely keep a focus. As much as possible anyway, I do have a problem with small clutter piles around my house even though I clean daily. But this will be different! The purpose of this blog in particular is to focus on my store and the process of going green. I'd like to share about the products I've found and why I have chosen them. Some I've used, some I haven't. Everything I've picked is unique or functional and somehow green. Therefore, I want to present why I'm offering them in the first place and why I decided to take this leap of faith even, dare I say it, in a horrific recession.

First of all, just so I'm clear, I am what I've found to be called a Lighter Shade of Green. I like to eat organic produce, use non-toxic cleaners and personal care products, use organic products for baby, compost, and recycle…I'm a bit obsessed with the recycling, more on that later. But I don't believe the world is ending tomorrow due to global warming. Instead, I practice green ways to create a kid friendly, non-toxic home life for my dearest little one. Besides, I hate chemical. I hate chemical smell, chemical taste, chemical anything. I suppose all this chemical hating could turn into some form of neurotic behavior much like those who are fanatic bleach scrubbing fiends (I am a recovering bleach scrubbing fiend!).

Now that I have introduced myself, I hope you like some of the things I will have to offer on this blogging cyber world experience.
