As the title might suggest, this is going to be a bit of a random post. It’s kind of a random day. For several days I’ve been working to finish specific projects that had deadlines, and this is the first day when I’ve had a lot of flexible time, so I’ve been doing random things like checking what search engine terms people have used to find my blogs (something WordPress shows on its statistics page). Here are the terms people used for my Everyday Intensity blog so far today:
live with intensity
what were your childhood hobbies?
themes for creative manifesto
eating expired garbanzo beans in a can
i hate the intensity phone
So, I googled “eating expired garbanzo beans in a can” (without the quotation marks), to see how in the world I wrote about that, and this came up on the first page of results:
Apr 22, 2010 … Some of that waste comes from packages with expired used-by dates. … Combine with 1 can (14-15 ounces) garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained, … My son could eat this dish morning, noon and night. …
As I said, random.
Ultimate Blog Challenge
Speaking of Everyday Intensity, I am just finishing a 31-day series there. It has been a wonderful way for me not only to share others’ great work on the topic and hear your ideas, but also to solidify further for myself the blog’s tone and purpose. I’ll probably post less frequently there for a while and focus more here in August, which is why I was happy to find out about the Ultimate Blog Challenge from Sandi Johnson’s Blue Inkwell (a fantastic blog about writing and publishing). I signed up for the Ultimate Blog Challenge today, and am excited to explore the voice of The Wild Thyme Unseen more fully over the coming month. Thirty-one days. Thirty-one posts. If you are a blogger, why not join the fun?
