Au Revoir

As you may have already guessed, many things have combined to make me stop posting to this blog. (First school, now work.) Rather than fitfully posting a handful of times a year, I think I’ll officially call it. But there’s a lot of good content here that I’m going to leave up for posterity. Here are some of my favorite posts:

Transportation – I love looking at the transition here, from driving a hybrid car, to riding a bike, to renting out our car. Now I’m driving to work (boo!), but Jason’s riding a bike, so I guess it balances out.

Home Improvement – We made a lot of effort to learn about weatherization after we moved into a drafty apartment, and it was a lot of fun.

Water – From reducing wasted water to reducing wasted water filters.

Energy Use – If I’m going to make an effort to save energy, I like to know the best places to focus.

Recycling – From municipal recycling to people recycling.

Food – I have a hard time cooking real food regularly, but focusing on it for this blog helped me out a lot.

Personal Care – Some of the most personal — and successful — changes I’ve made.

Cleaning – How to clean your house (or have someone else do it) without using horrible chemicals or supporting unfair employment practices.

Vermicomposting – Probably one of the least impactful things I’ve done, but the most fun.

Education – The most difficult (and most fulfilling) thing I did in the last decade was going back to school. It took up so much of my time that I didn’t do a lot of outside writing, but here are a few posts about it, along with a great paper my niece did on land use of my parents’ property in Maine that I know we’re going to continue to refer to.

Reviews – Fun reading (and not-so-fun watching).

Thank you for reading my blog! I learned so much while I was writing it, and I loved the conversations we had through it.
