Micro-Conservation; what the?

Tagged Under :

OK here is my first true crack at it! Ha –

First let me give you the definitions of the words separately that I believe sum up my reason for blogging on this oh-so-important topic:

Micro: very small in comparison with others of its kind

Conservation: prevention of excessive or wasteful use of a resource

Second let me tell you why I want to talk about it! Honestly, having lived my whole life in conservation mode of “the rainforest is being depleted every minute!”, “our ozone layer has a hole in it from CFC’s!”, “our oceans have floating garbage patches!” I have felt COMPLETELY overwhelmed. I really care about these things and conservation is not just important, it is an essential duty we were given when we were created – see Genesis 1, God created the world and it was GOOD! Truly let’s first agree that we have a stewardship towards the earth that we should take seriously.

My delusions of grandeur growing up included thinking that I might be smart enough to fix one of these very large and complex issues! Yea right! Now that life has toppled into place, I find that while I can’t fix the big things, I can work on the small things. You other mom and dads, husbands and wives, probably have this figured out already but just in case you are like me and still finding your way — I hope to help guide you!

My blog series will include primarily the micro-conservation of:

  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Life Hacks (Grab Bag)

There, done. That wasn’t so bad really. Oh, my analysis says 300 words is a good length and without this sentence I was 293. 🙂 See? Even you can blog better than me!

I truly hope I have piqued enough interest for you to join me on this journey of incorporating micro-conservation into our daily lives with my first post about food coming up next!


Meet Our Newest Contributor: Jess!

As most of you know, this blog is really a Createspace and an intellectual outlet for me. That’s why I don’t blog on any sort of schedule – because sometimes it takes me longer than other times to finish posts (currently reading about Algeria for my Travel the World in Books challenge). Which is why when my good friend Jess approached me asking if she could contribute, I immediately said yes. Jess has been a good friend of mine since college and I won’t tell you too much about her because in a second, I’m going to turn the blog over to her (so to speak) but she is a new face you will be seeing around here. I’m thrilled to be opening this up to be a Createspace for her too. So, without further ado, please meet my friend Jess.

Hello! It is great to arrive in the blog-o-sphere! Melissa has graciously accepted my offer of contributing occasionally to her already-existing Createspace and I am so grateful to test out my hand (brain? typing?) at blogging.

First off…. you have to know that I have a unique sense of humor that often gets confused with seriousness — I guess they call that dry humor. I also enjoy neologism, of which you are going to experience quite a few of my own made up words for everything and anything. You can call them Jess-isms for now. So, as you read, you may find yourself rolling your eyes and trying to suppress a groan at my attempt to lighten your day!

Other than that I suppose you want some more biographical features of me:

  • Born and bred Wisconsonite – which yes, makes me an avid cheese-eater (subtract the wine, add the beer) and Green Bay Packers fan
  • Married for 4.5 years with two children under the age of 5
  • Bachelors in Communications and Associates in Arts

And you want to know if you have anything at all in common with me before you commit to reading ANY of my future posts .. HA!

  • Love historical fiction books and movies
  • Love to craft – paint, crochet, sew or just about anything that is putzy
  • Love to play & coach soccer
  • Love to try new things: food, places, activities

OK, enough about me – stay tuned for my first post on “Micro-Conservation”. Don’t even bother looking up what that is, it your first taste of a Jess-ism and you will learn my definition for it when you read my post!!
