I began blogging under the name Green Bean Dreams in 2007. I've been happy here. Named after a vegetable, like those I plant, in my yard. Sharing my dreams.
Until a friend raised the specter of dream interpretation. It turns out that to dream of green beans conjures up some really bad juju. Who knew? And, while I'm not one to bend to every superstition, I'm also not one to flaunt fate. It was enough to make a girl think of changing her blog name.
It was more than bad mojo though. I'm at a different point in my life than I was when I began dreaming as a green being. Back in October 2007, I was beginning my green journey. Sampling from the eco-pie. Was I a farmers' market type of girl? Yes. Someone to bike on errands? Not really. Was I the type of greenie to raise chickens and jimmy up water saving mechanisms? You betcha! One to lug around a glass straw and reusable take out containers? I failed there.
So after being on this road for several years, I feel that I'm in need of a change. Not a big one because I am, after all, Green Bean, but one that opens up a bit the road I have yet to travel at it. While I'm at it, I think I'll ditch the black magic. Today and over the weekend, you'll see a new header, a new domain name (That's up already!), and a new Facebook page (It's here! Look to your right and sign up!). Green Bean Dreams will become Green Bean Chronicles.
Supposedly, the links all work. That is technical wizardry, though. I'll just resort to crossing my fingers. I hope you'll stick with me through all the voodoo!
