On My Own
If you are reading this, then you’ve found me, and I am eternally grateful for that! This move became inevitable when I participated in my blogging class, and though I was initially scared to do it, I was also up for the challenge. Moving a blog, the sum total of four years of writing and personal thoughts, is no small feat, and I was terrified at the prospect of losing what has become my passion.
Then, I realized that, as I’ve grown as a writer and blogger, my blog has changed immensely from those short diary entries I typed haphazardly back in the early days. I had a baby, and then another, and I lost some of my old opinions, and gained new insight into so many different things in life. I am still finding my way, but my voice is clear and distinct now, and it seems fitting to start fresh, once and for all.
This blog (with my very own URL!) will be my new and, hopefully, final home as I pursue the passions I’ve developed throughout the years. I have no plans to delete my original blog, and will refer to it quite often, especially in these early days. I won’t update the old blog any longer, but it will be there as a reminder of where I once was. And how far I’ve come.
I hope that you will continue to follow me here, and be patient with me as I adapt to my new surroundings. Self-hosting offers many wonderful opportunities, but it’s also a little like dangling on the edge of a precipice, which is a fitting metaphor for making such a gigantic move. You can expect the same types of posts you’ve come to know, along with the same sarcasm and humor, too. In fact, all that’s really changed is the actual site, which is now my very own. I’m working to make the transition as seamless as possible, and please feel free to offer your ideas and suggestions for improvement.
Thank you for your loyalty and readership as I embark on this new adventure. I’m really looking forward to the journey ahead.
