To Whom This May Concern

Day four of blogging… Identify your audience. Who am I writing to? I think I have a problem of writing what I think everyone wants to hear rather than appealing to an audience. In truth, I would love for everyone in the world to be completely enthralled with my life but as my mother often told me as a child, “The world does not revolve around you, Tara.”

My life is centered around my fiance and our family, crocheting, and trying to reverse heart disease and diabetes damage to our bodies. I want my readers to see my crochet projects and either want to purchase them or want to learn how to do it on their own. I want to inspire people to take control of their health; be with us on our ups and downs. Being healthy is a roller coaster and sometimes you need to experience the lows to appreciate the highs.

I see that blogging isn’t as easy as writing in a diary was at 12. But I’m learning, and hopefully I’ll snag a few followers along the way.

Who Am I and Where Is My Mother? – Day One

My name is Tara. I am 30 years old and completely lost in this game on life. I live with my fiancé, his daughter that I’ve nicknamed Bug, and our zoo of animals. I work for the state government. I drive a minivan. And I’m obsessed with anything crochet.

I signed up for Blogging 101 in hopes to become a better writer and blogger. So far all I have done is use WordPress as a diary. I’ve discovered I like eating mostly vegetarian and would like to inspire others to be healthy. I will not preach my beliefs about food or religion and I do not judge. Each person should make decisions for themselves. Don’t worry about what Jim Bob is doing down the street. He is probably just as lost as you are.

I have pretty awesome parents and a wonderful grandma. They are my rocks and although it probably doesn’t seem like it, they are my world.

It’s pretty hard to introduce myself when I don’t know who I am. Those are the facts. Come join me in figuring out my life and hopefully grab a laugh along the way.
