I have been blogging for five years now.
In September of 2008, when I was a high school senior who fancied myself enough of a writer that I thought I should do it publicly (still not sure if that was a good idea), I started my first blog. It was drama-laden and iffy at best in the adjectives department and still exists if you really want to go there. But don’t think I’ll be providing the URL.
In September of 2011, I began my second blog upon departing for a semester in Salzburg, Austria. I only posted about a dozen times on that one, since I was, you know, living my grandest Sound of Music daydreams.
In December of 2011, back from my travels, I decided that I didn’t want to return to the high school Blogger blog, and anyway, I had a new goal in mind: I was resolved to blog once a day, every day for the entire new year. Thus Eight Days a Week was born on WordPress. When that year ended I stuck around for another year, blogging about whatever struck my fancy.
In September of 2013, I decided to start yet another blog. My last, I fervently hope. I have long wanted my blog to be its own website, to have a higher level of creative control, to have a chance to join blogging communities, and to interact with blog readers on a larger scale. Additionally, while the name suited my original project well, Eight Days a Week no longer describes what I’m trying to do as a blogger and writer.
So, I’ve moved. One more time.
Don’t think for a moment that this changes much. Goodness knows I’ll be writing the same goofy sagas and literary rants as always. Also, as I mentioned before, my posts from Eight Days a Week have transferred over to the new blog, so the gang’s truly all there.
Although it’s not really goodbye, I want to take what feels like a solemn moment to thank all of you for reading, for following, for liking, for commenting. Thanks for not rolling your eyes when eye rolling was more than justified. At least, thanks for not rolling your eyes where I could see you. It has meant a great deal to have the support of fine folks such as yourselves.
I hope that you’ll follow the link below to the new blog**, where an introduction is waiting:
