How my blog got its name:
We all have nicknames or references to one another in our family, much as I imagine everyone does. I went from Christina, to Tina, to T in the span of 6 years. I’m also referred to as Sister, Roo, and Shortround (not the little Asian kid from Indiana Jones, but an ordnance round that blows up in your face – I’m still not sure how I feel about that one since I swear I’m not quick to lose my temper). Smithers came courtesy of Hiking Buddy not too long ago.
I also started hiking again and make it a point to get out at least once a week (usually on weekends). Adventure in the outdoors a bit, if you will.
I’m sure you’re smart enough to figure out how those got put together for the name (at least, I hope).
Why I started this blog:
In response to my brother’s new blog, Smitty Sayeth, and his somewhat hypocritical post about how much he dislikes bloggers, I decided to do what all good little sisters do: I started a blog. I love my brother, so don’t read into this as being anything more than what started as a snarky loving sisterly moment, into an actual miniature obsession of mine.
Once upon a time, I tried doing a food blog. It bored me to tears and left me with zero desire to continue after only 7 entries. In starting this blog, I quickly decided the ‘one topic’ blog isn’t so much my forte so have decided a bit more of an eclectic vibe would better suit my purposes in filling cyber space with more crap.
And other stuff:
I suppose you can consider this a mix of photography and adventure. The blog has also been a forcing function to keep me outdoors and figuring out how to use the new camera my parents got me for Christmas.
Somewhere in rediscovering my love for all things nature (not so much tree-hugger; more, the beauty of it), I’ve discovered my new love for capturing it in photograph.
