This is quite a scary blank screen to be starting with. I have been thinking about setting up a blog for about a year now and last time I tried it I got stuck at the first hurdle, naming the blog. This time I decided to keep it simple and go with my name. The aim of the blog is a personal account of trying to live a lower impact lifestyle. I want to understand how simple everyday decisions can potentially reduce my environmental impact. It is not my intention at this point to be drastic in my decisions but I don’t know where this journey will take me. I like to think i already live quite a low impact life, I cycle to work, I very rarely fly and i’m a vegetarian but hopefully through documenting this i will understand it more. Part of understanding the impact of decisions will be calculating my environmental footprint so one of my next posts will be on selecting an online calculator to measure my decisions against. I’d better get researching.
