Greetings and Welcome!
I’m Kim, a 30-something living in the Minneapolis metro area, by way of Wisconsin. I’m an avid book lover, coffee aficionado, TV binger, higher ed professional, soon-to-be student pursuing her Ph.D., wife, and fur mama.
That’s the short version.
I started blogging in 2013, on a website called Racing Bananas. For 3.5 years, I blogged about weight loss and healthy living. I documented what I was eating and my workouts, my struggles and my successes. Unfortunately, it’s existence has been wiped clean from the internet, due to my negligence and not understanding internet-y things. Lesson learned.
After much thought, I decided to launch a new blog: Kim Bocko (a version of my IRL name). My goal on Kim Bocko is to blog about my interests and my life more broadly. I still an interested in healthy living, but I also am obsessed with reading, love to be outdoors, and spend time with my family. I also have been accepted to begin my Ph.D. in the Fall 2017 semester and want to be able to share my experience as I return to school and work full-time (and try to survive).
So, my space of the internet will be a mixture of topics. I suppose you could lump me into the “lifestyle blog” genre, but really I don’t want to fit into a mold. I want to be able to share my experiences and thoughts as I see fit and hope to get to know you all better along the way!
