October 13's post had me wondering what to do about this blog. I thought I was just going to ditch it. The credit card expiring and needing updating in mid-November to pay the bill to Typepad almost sealed the deal. But then I get the kick in the pants I needed (as often happens to me) and here we are back in blogging action again.
Before I write a post about that kick in the pants, let me catch you up on the last two months: Coffee, crafting, more coffee, some DJing, cold weather, and delicious sandwiches in Boulder. There you go!
Actually, this coffee thing: It's really my passion right now. I changed my every day social twitter name a couple of months ago to @PamNeedsCoffee and everything I do is kind of wrapped around my pursuit for coffee. My last blog post on October 17 was about coffeehouses. I craft in coffeehouses. I write in coffeehouses. I drink coffee at home while creating playlists for events. I travel the country and seek out good coffee and interesting coffeehouses. I am now making coffee at home with my new Rancilio Miss Silva. This isn't a new obsession, as a friend questioned recently. I have been interested in coffee since I was a barista in Indiana about 10 years ago.
I think I will be tweaking things here to center around coffee, but still branch off to the other aspects of my life: beanblossom craftyness, DJing at lime + coconut and travel. I registered pamneedscoffee.com and it's forwarded to this blog. I thought about starting another blog, but when I make my life that complicated I run and hide from everything. Been there, done that! I keep talking about focusing and branding myself, but gosh darn it, this is ALL me. I craft, I DJ, I manage events, I glamp in my vintage trailer, I travel the world, and I drink a lot of coffee.
Tomorrow I will share the kick in the pants news! It's very exciting! It involves LA. And J-Lo. Ha.
