I’m thinking of doing a little early spring cleaning around here. Shake things up a little. The title of this blog has changed several times, but I would like to make one more change, hopefully to something at least somewhat meaningful that I could stick with for a good long time. If anyone has suggestions, I’m more than happy to entertain them. Taglines, too.
My writing here has several themes, but I doubt it’s cohesive enough to suggest something thematic as a title. But perhaps a reader could better see a motif than the writer. I’ve also gone back and forth with varying degrees of anonymity. I don’t think I’ve driven enough traffic to warrant going completely back under cover, but on the other hand….the golden rule of blogging is to assume that the person you’re writing about will read it. Keeping that in mind, I’m not sure I’m ready to plaster my real name on the header again.
I’ve gone through one or more quiet periods here, too. I guess I don’t like to whine about it when I’m closer to depressed than not, but I hope to keep the recent momentum going and make a daily or every-other day entry regardless of my mental/emotional state. I started this blog as self therapy during the aftermath of the miscarriage, and thankfully it has not turned into an infertility or ttc blog, but it’s also not a mommy blog. I’m just one of the millions of faceless people writing about their lives, which is just fine for now. I’m still finding my voice, along with my place in the world. I expect both to continue to evolve over time.
As for aesthetics, I would like to someday upgrade to Typepad or something similar where I could invest a bit more in the design and layout as well, but for now I’ll keep it simple, stupid. No, not you.
Also, to any lurkers that might be out there, please feel encouraged to chime in. I know the regular commenters here strike imposing figures, but please do not hesitate to join the conversation.
