Starting over...

Once upon a time there was a thing called "MySpace". "MySpace" was a social networking site that allowed all sorts of people to connect, share their interests, music, photos, and even their thoughts through something called a "blog". I used to write on this "blog" contraption quite frequently, posting my most inane thoughts, my dreams, my rants, and my reviews of hot rockstar studded concerts. It was a release of sorts, since I have too many thoughts for my own good. It was entertaining. It was cathartic. It was fun.

Then came the day when a big giant called "Facebook" took over the world and "MySpace" swiftly faded into the background. Status updates replaced the simple blog of random thoughts, and the world completely changed. I fought the call of the herd as long as I could, for a few reasons, including: 1) I don't like to follow herds; 2) MySpace was more fun because it was more personal and allowed for a lot more customization; 3) THERE WAS NO PLACE TO BLOG!!! (Granted, the "Facebook" giant has a "notes" section, but it just isn't the same for me. Again, too impersonal.)

So I started a separate blog to quench my thirst for spilling my guts all over the place. Sadly, that thirst was nowhere near as pressing as the need to show people how I'm able to eat pretty darned well despite being perpetually broke, so all my other thoughts had to float around in my head, alone and unattended.

Scary.

Now, after almost 2 solid years of blogging about food, I am ready for a change. Not a permanent, non-food-blogging change, of course. I definitely can't see myself stopping PGEW anytime soon, not just because of my readers & fans, but because it's good for me. It's helped me to rediscover my love of cooking and has given me the creative release I had needed for so long. But it's because of this that my zillions of random thoughts are now begging to be let out, put down somewhere, brought to life. I miss sharing my randomness with others, bouncing ideas off a fresh mind or two. For crying out loud, I have pictures I want to share with the world and guess what? They're not all about food!

That's why I'm creating this space, a place where I can do all of the above and much more. Though my beloved accidental "career" blog will always be on the front burner and I may have lapses in updating, I plan to spend a lot more time here, more so than at the original Kimberland blog. If you're a fan of Poor Girl Eats Well and have stopped by Kimberland as a result, welcome! I'm glad to have you here, and happy to share the non-food side of me. I will certainly discuss food from time to time, since I do enjoy it and have a series of food-related essays I've been working on. But this will be more about life as experienced by me, illustrated by the photos, videos and writings I will post. They are all snapshots of my thoughts, snippets from my mind as a result of giant daydreaming binges or my direct experiences.

So welcome to Kimberland. Please stop by often. It's quite a quirky little place, but I have fun here. I hope you do too.
