If you’ve really been paying attention, you may have noticed a change in this blog’s tagline last week, from “Normalizing green living,” to “Tastefully fueling active transportation.”
While I’ve been pondering a new blog title for months now (without coming to a conclusion), I settled on the new tagline almost immediately. While there are many ways that I attempt to live “green,” replacing car trips with human-powered trips and eating a largely local (and homegrown) diet play a major role in my efforts. Plus, I enjoy writing about said topics.
I chose “active transportation” instead of biking or cycling because, as much as I enjoy biking for transportation, walking is even simpler, and anything that gets you out of the car and moving under your own power works in my book.
The posts here have been skewed a bit toward the food side lately, but that doesn’t mean the biking and walking isn’t happening. In many ways, biking somewhere doesn’t seem noteworthy to me — it’s just what I do.
That said, I plan to increase my bike-related posts, since I hope to encourage and inspire others to get out on two wheels (or three wheels, or two feet, or whatever works for you), and, despite the fact that I would like biking to be the norm, in this country, it simply isn’t, so there’s plenty of room for change.
Anyway, my hunt for a pithy blog title that captures the spirit of my writing may be put on indefinite hold, as I rather like the original title with the new tagline. Happy reading, gardening, cooking, eating, and actively transporting yourself to a greener lifestyle!
