Hello! For the one or two people reading this blog.
So I’ve been aware for quite some time that my wordpress was just…redundant. I didn’t use it for anything beyond reposting writing that was already on my tumblr. I’ve made little to no effort to engage with the writing community on wordpress. In fact, I’ve just made no effort with this blog, period.
But I like having a wordpress. WordPress, in my head, is a little more official than tumblr. I couldn’t reblog pictures of cats even if I wanted to. (Although I suppose I could post them.)
So I’m not closing down this blog, for now. I’ve uncomfortably changed the url to reflect the fact that I’m not going to be posting (much) writing here anymore. To be honest, I’m not really sure what I will be doing with this blog. I hope to have the occasional book review, the occasional post about writing goals, etc. I’m generally not great with social media, I find self-promotion difficult, I don’t enjoy arguing over opinion posts, and I don’t really like expressing myself in a way that is extremely personal. (I guess you could argue that writing is something like that, but I would somewhat disagree.) This post, itself, is strange for me to write.
I’ve deleted all the old posts, so I can have a fresh start. (This blog also doesn’t have a title…I’m sure I’ll think of one eventually.)
So, that’s it. Thank you for sticking with me. I’m sorry I won’t be posting that much writing here anymore, I know that’s largely the reason this blog has any followers at all. You’re at perfect liberty to unfollow, and please don’t feel guilty about it. (Who am I kidding, I’m probably the only person who feels guilty about unfollowing blogs…)
PS, additional social media links.
(I hope I don’t have to do this again in a while. This is awkward.)
