What up, folks.
First off, I just want to say thank you to everyone who reads The Cheddar Box, anyone who comments on posts that catch their attention, and all of the people who have given great feedback. Since starting the blog almost a year ago, it has totally exceeded any modest expectations I had for it, specifically, a way to share information, a way to spark dialog, and a way to put some of my own thoughts out there for my own sanity and self-therapy.
That being said, I’ve discovered that I enjoy this blog shit a lot, and have decided to branch out and start another one. It’s called The Cheddar Path, and it’s going to cover a growing interest I’ve developed in what is called social entrepreneurship, that is, using business models to further social justice causes. In this crazy capitalist world we live in, I’m interested in finding new ways to practice community based economics that benefit, rather than exploit the people. That’s what I’m hoping The Cheddar Path will be all about, finding a better path to that cheddar we all need to survive!
The Cheddar Box isn’t going anywhere, this is just a way of organizing my crazy brain into a personal blog (the Box) that gives me the freedom to talk about whatever (“So today I woke up and thought to myself…”) and another way more specific and topically focused blog (the Path). I know what you’re probably all thinking. Two blogs? What the hell is this guy thinking? Way too much time on his hands, wasting way too much time on the internet. That may very well be, but we’ll see what happens. Check it out and let me know what you think!
