I can’t help it. I need a little corner on this thing we call the world wide web. Since returning to the classroom a few years ago, I’ve come to realize there are quite a few people who don’t know what a website is. Everything is app-based, and the idea of a “blog” seems to be diminishing. Time is marching on, as it does, and with every semester that passes, I find myself saying things like, “in my day…” and “when I was younger…” more and more.
Regardless, I enjoy having a little spot on the internet to call my own. Social media has really changed the landscape of the web. I don’t particularly appreciate feeling dependent on these giant media companies that decide who and what I see. That’s not to say I don’t use them, as I do love connecting with people online, but I don’t want them to become the only place I have a voice.
My About page says it best.
RoniNoone.com is my online playground to share recipes, cocktail ideas, photographs, and whatever else I feel like.
I don’t have any plans to blog regularly or post often, but I enjoy having a space to share things when I feel inspired.
So, I’m here today to just that — share the new site and this photo I took with my phone on a recent trail run.
I’m two hundred and twenty-nine days in on an at-least-a-mile-a-day running streak. I started it when we got quarantined in March, and every Sunday, I try to hit a local trail. It’s currently one of my favorite things to do! And I always try to snap a few shots of the scenery to share on Instagram.
Besides running, I’ve been trying to figure out how to navigate this crazy new world along with everyone else. My inner extrovert (does that even make sense?) has been struggling, but I’m adjusting. I don’t really have a choice.
Right now, I’m enjoying all the fun (yes, I find it extremely fun), setting up this new website. It’s another one of my favorite things to do.
Well, that’s all I’ve got in me today. If you stumble across this post, leave me a comment. Let me know your thoughts on blogs and social media. How are you managing these days?
