The worldwide web does not need another BLOG but I do.
I have been pondering the title of this site for a long while. Over time, it will reveal its meaning more and more, but I really believe it captures something about me. It’s not that I am so very interesting (you don’t even know me) but as with most BLOG’s it is a form of self-expression that I have embraced.
I appreciate that it succeeds in offering me flexibility to comment on a wide range of topics. It gives me permission to switch gears. I need to do that, to switch gears, from time to time.
While I crave freedom from expectation, there’s no need to be pedantic. If I use this space as an unfiltered area to say whatever is in my head then no one will read it. At least, I wouldn’t. So here’s what you can expect from upRouted:
I will write about bicycling (repair, trips, races, equipment, commuting). Possibly other activities too, like canoeing and bouldering.
I will write about simple living (minimalism, sustainability, housing, cities).
I will write about being/becoming an entrepreneur (wisdom, strategies, attempts, failures, ideas). I created this space as a format for a business I am developing. When that happens you’ll be reading about it too.
I will occasionally include a category called “Things I Like” that will act as a catch-all across each of these subjects.
How about you? Do you need to switch gears sometimes? How do you accomplish that in your life?
