I started The Leenie to write on a more personal level--to exit the treadmill of product round-ups and materialism. But then, annoyingly, I noticed I sometimes want to write about a thing I've used and liked. A product! Gah capitalism.
I don't have an objection to airy or even pointless posts in the main blog feed. I answer fake questions, after all, and post them there. But I also didn't want every other longish blog post sandwiched by entries about face wash and nail clippers. I have things to say about those items, but not that much.
So I made The List. It's simply a list, organized by category, of products I really, really like. I own them, I use them, and I include a little note explaining why. It's linked in the navigation bar and I might occasionally link to it when I've added new things. But otherwise it will be a tucked-away thing: there if you want it, and totally ignorable if you don't. Like any good Midwesterner.
