I moved here from Blogspot in search of something new. I deleted all my old blogs, which is crazy to me because I’m crazy sentimental, but I thought it was for the best to leave all of that behind me. I still have my tumblr intact but I’m still thinking about whether or not I want clear that out too. But it’s difficult because I’ve had it for YEARS.
I wanted to go back to blogging because I feel like I’ve lost a lot of my creative outlets. At least ones that are easy to jump into. Whenever I start drawing or painting I get completely lost in it and can’t let it go until it’s finished. Those types of endeavors are exhausting and end up being more stressful than therapeutic in the long run. I’ve missed writing about things that are important to me, current events, various happenings in my life, and etc.
That said, I’m not sure if I want to make this blog public yet because I’m not sure how *deep* I’m going to get into things. I might make a separate private blog for more personal bits.
I’m also going to try bringing my DSLR around with me again. Looking back on my old posts I noticed that I used it a lot for selfies, OOTDs, and just out and about. I want to get back into that. I felt awkward at the time because I felt like I’m taking pictures of EVERYTHING and people were snickering at me. Times have changed and even though people still give a side eye to those making weird faces for snapchat, it’s pretty commonplace now to see people standing around taking pictures of seemingly insignificant things.
Anyway, I’m not sure if I want to have an actual focus for this blog. It might end up being a brain dump, like my twitter feed but on steroids and not constrained by a 140 character maximum, but little more mature than my tumblr. I don’t know. We’ll see what happens.
