I created Lilolia in 2009 as a book blog. I had never blogged before and needed a creative outlet. Focusing on books was a natural choice since I’ve always been an avid reader but writing this blog got me thinking about my reading in a new way. It prompted me to be more intentional and I restructured my reading so I could get more out of it. I wanted it to be both enjoyable and constructive for my life. This way of looking at my personal reading goals got me thinking about other areas of my life; how I wanted to live and what I wanted to get out of it.
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Essentially Lilolia is about life and how we can go about getting the best out of it. It’s the little things we do each day that accumulate into a life of quality. With this in mind I like to write about anything and everything that can improve on that quality like creativity, photography, life design, well being, self enrichment, travel, and, of course, reading.
We’re all looking for purpose, meaning, and happiness and the journey we take toward these things is what life is all about. By being creative and conscious you set yourself up to get the best out of your life journey. I hope Lilolia serves as a bit of inspiration for that.
It’s your life. Do with it something of your own making.
I hope you enjoy reading Lilolia.
