Blogging Is My Hobby. It Isn’t My Job.

Blogging Is My Hobby. It Isn’t My Job.

If you couldn’t tell from my previous post, I’ve been thinking a lot about blogging. Specifically, how and why I blog.

The more eagle-eyed among you will also know that I’m blogging from a new domain name: musicalpoem.me.

I’ve been blogging for so long that I can’t imagine NOT blogging. I love this little space on the internet I’ve created for myself, one where I can write to my heart’s content…

A Day in the Life: July 2014

A Day in the Life: July 2014

On a designated day each month, I post a linkup where bloggers can showcase what “a day in the life” that month is like with photos, text or a combination of the two. For more information about this project, click here.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this linkup lately, especially since the dates for June and July bookended my trip to Chile. This was unintentional, of course; the original date…

8 Things I’ve Learned Since Graduating High School

8 Things I’ve Learned Since Graduating High School by @anotherpinkblog

Today, Kelly is gracing Break the Sky with this humorous post on the things she’s learned since graduating high school. I love reading the lists Kelly writes on her blog, so I’m flattered that she’s chosen to share this one with us.

Earlier last month while graduation ceremonies were being held, I reflected on the things I’ve accomplished in the past 8 years (how has it been that long?!) At the…

When Travel Stirs the Soul

When Travel Stirs the Soul by @femmefrugality

The lovely Femme Frugality is taking over the blog today with this great guest post about how travel experiences can move us in different ways, even stirring the soul. Take it away, girl!

One of the greatest things about travel can be the way it affects us. Travel can transform our perspectives, our opinions, and sometimes even our souls.

And then sometimes it doesn’t. At least not in the way we…

My Favorite Things: Broccolini (Plus Two Giveaways!)

broccolini

I had no idea broccolini was a thing until last winter, when a friend invited me over for dinner and served spaghetti with homemade tomato sauce and roasted broccolini. It almost looks like baby broccoli although it isn’t mini broccoli; broccolini’s florets are smaller and the stalks are thinner and longer. Either way, it’s just as delicious as broccoli, if not more.

I haven’t had broccolini…

Life Lately

Just like that, we’re in the last few days of June. This month absolutely flew by, most of which I attribute to the fact that I spent so much of it working (including weekends!). This also had the unexpected (but understandable) side effect of my online priorities falling by the wayside, as what free time I did have I chose to spend with friends or catching up with my family on Skype.

I honestly…

Lemongrass

This post is part of my The Alphabet Series project.

“Oh, I bet I know what you’re going to order,” he told me with a twinkle in his eye as we perused the menu at a local Thai restaurant.

My eyes scanned the menu and fell on the very dish I just knew he was referencing. “Lemongrass tom yum soup?” I guessed.

“Yep,” he replied with a grin. “Your two favorite things about Thai food rolled into one.”
