Say Hello to Plant Basic

Monday, 2 April 2018

You may have noticed that I disappeared for a couple of months – long story short, life got away from me for a little while there. I’ve had a few things going on in my personal life (the biggest of which being house-hunting to buy) and had been lacking inspiration and motivation to blog. I feel like everyone is a bit of a broken record about the issues within the blogging community these days, so let’s just say I didn’t have the same drive to get involved and keep producing content as I used to.

Now that I’m back to blogging again though, the biggest change is obviously my blog name: The Zombie Said is gone! I first came up with that name probably around six or more years ago, and while it’s always been a unique and eye-catching handle, I didn’t really feel like it properly reflected me or the kinds of posts I write anymore. So, after much painful deliberation, welcome to Plant Basic.

Ethical, plant-based lifestyle has been at the forefront of my content and my life for the past two years now, and my blog has slowly shifted towards one that allows me to share my voice as a positive advocate of plant-based living in a balanced, considerate way that can be lacking at times from the vegan community. I’ve been wanting to shift away from beauty and further into lifestyle for quite a while (but don’t worry, there will still be beauty posts), and sharing my thoughts and providing support and discussion for those already living or tentatively considering going vegan or living a more plant-based life is pretty much top of my blogging goals these days.

Plant Basic stems (haha plant pun) from two ideas: one being that I’m a plant-based basic bitch and fully embrace my excessive banana-eating and avocado obsession, and two being my desire to provide an approachable source for all the basics of plant-based, ethical living. I don’t live a lavish lifestyle or use a lot of weird, hard to find ingredients in my cooking. I don’t produce zero waste or have a minimal carbon footprint or never buy new clothes off the rack – I do my best, I do the basics, and I want to continue to use this blog to show everyone else those basics and remind us all that the little things can make a difference too.

I also intend to write a little more often about me and what’s going on in my life, beyond delicately curated content.  I’ve always been pretty casual and laidback, but I want Plant Basic to feel like a window into the home of a friend helping you on your own compassionate journey (I’d vlog for this same reason if only I wasn’t terribly awkward on camera).

It’ll likely take me some time to get back into the swing of blogging and really find my voice again, so please be patient with me! In the meantime, I’m really excited by the new direction I’m headed and hope you are too.
