This blog started off as just an extension of my Flickr photos, and then I started writing actual posts which morphed into a mostly food blog.
Who knows what’s next.
For all those who wonder about the name of the blog…well I gave that answer at the TriniGourmet when she did a virtual interview which I shall reproduce here:
“People wondering about my name? Years ago, when I was signing up for a free webmail, my own name was taken. So I decided I wanted something Trini. Not sure how I settled on chennet, but maybe it was in season. Couldn’t miss it if it was, since the neighbours across the road used to have a biiig tree that filled up the view from my bedroom window.
And that’s the answer to that big mystery “
And as for the “Lifespan of a Chennette”, well, I didn’t know what the blog was going to be about. Sister the younger, Lilandra pushed me into the blogosphere without my having a plan. But I knew it would have to be about me, about my life, about my travels…something. So Lifespan of a Chennette seemed to reflect that idea accurately, especially when a poem by one of my favourite authors popped immediately into my head (note I said “author” and not “poet”). I used to have this little poem on my blog just under the title, although I don’t think it would have made sense to many anyway ;-):

College is not really an option.
Caps and gowns don’t come in that size anyway.
