Never in a million years did I plan to revive my blog. Here we are. Social media implosions aside, 2023 seemed like a proper deadline to incorporate WordPress 6.1 with a fresh coat of paint.
“But why?!” Future Me shouts. “This can’t possibly spark joy!” Well…
- Owning my online identity and expanding outside the ultrawealthy’s silos is the wise thing to do. I’m launching some paid teaching products soon, so I hope to kickstart some traffic with free guides and zines before going live.
- The Indie Web is my web. There’s something special about expressing yourself through the style of your personal website. That twinge of envy when visiting some lovely Digital Gardens confirmed my need to think, write, design, and code again.
- I’ve stagnated as a writer and storyteller. Honing these skills means posting some half-baked thoughts. Vulnerability – ugh! But I gotta harness that 3am LiveJournal energy and share something longer than 180 characters to level up.
- It’s time to fully merge my personal and business identities. I’m a colossal weeb, casual gamer, and nerdy organizer. Separating that part of me from the clients and collaborators I work with is exhausting and probably limiting my biggest strengths.
I make no guarantees on the frequency and quality of future posts, but they’ll serve as stepping stones for the above goals. Enjoy this site in its transitional state until we ring in a new year!
