Posts Tagged ‘blogging’

It seemed appropriate, considering the name of this blog, that my first article (“Man, That Smells…Good!”) should have been about “smells” and their influence over the body and mind, since scent surrounds me and you everyday and everywhere.  But very rarely do we appreciate the environmental stimulants coursing around us, or how they make us feel and act. 

Though my intention in this forum is far from an obsessive tendency to blog about candles (even if my wife and I are relatively passionate about the soy candle craft), I did intend to offer a place where we could chat about things like candle science and the obvious presence of candles in our lives.  After all, as many people in this country who own a pair of underwear also have a candle of some kind around the house, whether for ornament, emergency, or necessity.  So, we’re blogging about one of the most familiar objects in our culture, as well as in the cultures of many people on our planet.  We also wanted a spot to bring to light issues like the environment, conservation, recycling, and respect for our world at large.  So, we’ll be blogging these things, too. 

NOTE:  In case you’re wondering whether I have a clue as to how to use pronouns correctly, “we”  refers to me and my wife, the beautiful young lady (see her up there in the picture next to the good looking, very lucky guy?) who actually and brilliantly runs Country Wickhouse Candles.  She proofs each and every blog post, and is actively involved in the ideas and elements that make our modest business what it is…Oh, and she says, “Hi.”

BUT…our primary focus here is to have fun, meet interesting people (no matter what your opinions), and share some of what we know (and don’t know) about all sorts of things.  For this very reason, I have a file in my File Cabinet (over there on the sidebar) called “I’m Babbling Again…What?” that will contain snippets of thought and snapshots of life that might strike me from time to time. Also in the File Cabinet are all my files on candle science (“Soy Dork:  Candle Science”) and reasons why we should all value soy candles (“Why You (Really) Need Soy Candles”).  Of course, like any fragrant flower, the File Cabinet will grow…

On these notes, let me personally welcome you to “Life Smells, So Smile!”  Hello!  Nice to meet you; we’re so glad you came.  And we wouldn’t be a little country candle store if we didn’t remind you to come again…and often.

(Yes, that really IS our last name.  I don’t think you could come up with a joke we haven’t already heard…really.)
