So after much deliberation, I have decided to self host this blog. I feel it will give me better control over traffic and content, and it will allow me to do some of the marketing things I will need to do in order to make this writing thing a success. Because that is now my new goal–I want to make a living doing my passion. After all, it consumes enough of my time and effort that it might as well be a job!
So now I have a plan, and part of that plan involves big changes to this here little blog. I’ve outgrown it. I rather miss the simpler days about three years ago when I primarily used it as a way to vent my frustrations about work and to wax philosophically, but I’ve grown and so have my aspirations. I will still maintain the same posting schedule when the change happens, so you can expect Tuesdays to be an eclectic mix of me waxing philosophical and/or talking about my own life or writing projects and for Thursdays to be about the wonderfully weird in our world.
What will change is the appearance and the tone of the blog. I’m still trying to decide what direction I want to ultimately take it, but at the very least I intend to step up my game. I feel the new platform will allow me to better present my content to you, the reader. While I do write about whatever interests me, I always do it with you in mind. Whether I seek to inspire, to inform, or to induce a bout of head scratching, it’s all about you guys. Thank you so much for everything these last three years, and I hope you’ll join me in this new phase of my personal evolution!
This will be the last post for awhile. I still need to figure out how to go about all this, and I don’t want to make things anymore complicated than I have to. I’m hoping I can transfer my current subscribers to the new blog, but if not, I’ll find a way to get a hold of you all and show you the new, improved site!
