I hope to have an index of past blog post titles up soon.
But for now, enjoy! I know I am glad to have these posts archived in a more anti-deletion-friendly way!
Welcome to the new Deb Goes Green blog site! My name is Deb Seymour and I am your blog host and author. I am so pleased you are here!
Why Is It New?
I have been writing a blog about my personal attempts at greener living since October, 2008. Sadly, in a post-Thanksgiving-food-coma computer file cleaning frenzy, I deleted all over 120 posts in the old Word Press site. (I thought I was deleting an outdated music data base- what a turkey I am!)
For Those Of You Who Haven't Been Here Before:
I strongly believe that we can live lightly on the earth without having to renounce all trappings of modern society. To that end, I began this blog in 2008 to chronicle my successes and failures in modeling that belief.
Happily I have been mostly successful in establishing the five R's (refuse, reduce, repair, recycle, rot) in my life while still having hot water, decent clothes,eating well and driving a car. There have been set backs as well and I tried to be honest about those, too.
My readers over the past six years have been from all walks of life and from all over the world. I have learned as much by reading their comments as I have by my own fumbling steps towards being net-zero.
What Is Next?
Pardon the "woo-woo", but sometimes the universe sends you signs that something needs to change. I suspect my accidental deletion of the old files was one of them: a sign to consolidate the best of what I can retrieve from the Google caches and old backups and present it all in a clearer, cleaner form.
A downsizing and de-cluttering of sorts.
Meanwhile, as I work to retrieve or re-write the best of what was lost (and write new material), please poke around this new site what I have so far and feel free to comment (usual niceties apply: rude or name-calling posts will be removed.)
Peace be with you,
