I am a writer by hobby living in the picturesque suburbs of Adelaide.

While cooped up here in my home thinking of all the wonderful sunny places I could be in the world, it makes me a little sad to sit in front of my heater and listen to the harsh winds blowing against my window. But I thought to myself, why not start a blog? Well the last time I did so was a terrible mess (and for a uni assignment) but its worth a try. So instead of moping around this winter, like I do every year, I have decided to try other ways to keep myself busy and hopefully give you some ideas.
There are many free blogging websites out there. Personally I have only used Blogger and WordPress.Setting up a blog is quite easy and straight forward and actually quite fun. Being able to choose backgrounds and explore different layouts and styles is enjoyable, but slightly time consuming. If you have an interest or hobby that you would like to share or explore, this is a great way to do so. Share it on Facebook and get friends to explore.
Ever since I was young I have wanted to knit, but every time I try it always ends within an hour. This year I have made up my mind to finally finish something, a scarf maybe or a doll sized scarf. Either way it is really easy to buy knitting needles and wool at this time of year and many books or websites that can help you along the way. This is also quite a cheaper way to enjoy winter and help you stay warm as well.
Another way to stay warm in Adelaide this winter is to explore the coffee culture. There are many cafe's with superbly good coffee and great atmosphere. Although going outside in the rain is not always ideal, staying indoors all the time is not good either. So grab a friend, or family and go out for a steamy hot coffee or tea and explore the range in Adelaide's coffee scene. One of my favourite places to go is Ebenezer Place in the city which has such a good vibe and many great cafes.
