A Proper Introduction.

After all, isn’t that the official ‘I’m-making-a-new-blog-follow-me-here’ posts job? Don’t you just click on that and continue on your merry way throughout the blogland? Is that just me?

Well, it turns out that I need a proper introduction. I feel like I have some explaining to do. You see, the most commonly asked questions I’m getting these days are: where is your blog? What happened to your blog? What’s going on? So here – in this post – I will try to answer those questions…and then some.

Where is my blog?

Why, you’ve stumbled across it! You silly goose 😉 In all actuality, I know what blog you’re talking about, and a little part of me hates myself for being so hasty with the deletion of that site. It was my blog baby. It was the one who led me into this world and then fuelled my hunger for the written word. It fuelled my hunger to be a part of this online world, which is a place where (through sheer luck) my small and occasionally whiny voice was being heard by you. My first blog got deleted when my little sister unknowingly stumbled across it as she looked for tattoo designs. It turns out that I had uploaded her design and then forgotten about it…Until the day it popped up in her search window. I swear I was having heart palpitations when I saw the URL that was attached to that image. That was the trigger. I did not {and still don’t} want my family or friends to find my blog{s}. It’s my solace and comfort. So, her discovery triggered a change of web address and overhaul on the blog which led to the creation of my second blog. I retained all my old posts, comments and followers but the URL simply changed. I didn’t drop off the face of the Earth, I simply did the old switcheroo on you.

Now I’m here at Little Misadventures and beginning another blogging adventure. I don’t think I will ever delete my old blog site, but I’m hoping to leave it in the past. I’m no longer interested in updating over there and I’m hoping that this blog will become something like a much-loved goldfish…or maybe a puppy. Just because puppies are more exciting 😉

What’s going on?

Well, I grew up. Sadly. I looked over the archives on the blog and I hardly recognized the person who wrote those posts. I do – of course I do – but I no longer want to be that person. Last year {and the beginning of this year} were perhaps the most trying times of my life and I’m glad just to have survived it relatively intact. That is nothing short of a miracle. As I looked over the history I felt a variety of emotions, but the one that stood out the most was: confusion. I felt like last year I was a confused little girl, muddling her way through college and life, trying to understand the concept of ‘heartbreak’ without completely going to pieces. Well, we all know how that turned out. I did lose it for a while there. However, I also learned that while it hurts oh so much, I can survive without him. I can survive by myself. I can cook something other than spaghetti bolognaise. All of these things are revelations that I uncovered last year.

Now I want to move on. I feel like I’m in a new and better place this year, and I want to document that without the stigma of the past. I’m grateful for everything that happened, but there comes a time when you have to step beyond the shadows reaching grasp and say enough is enough, pull up your big girl panties and move on. That, my friends, is exactly what I’m doing.

I’m moving on.

Is this your last blog?

Well to that question: who knows? I could wake up tomorrow and decide to go back to my old blog. I’m a female, so I follow the stereotype of being indecisive. The question of whether or not this is my last blog – while a good one – is almost laughable. For now, I can say that yes I will not be changing my URL for a long, long time but hey, you never really know. Do you?

And that, folks, is my rambling over for this post.

I hope I managed to answer a few of your questions but if I didn’t then feel free to leave a comment or head over to my contact page and drop me a line. I’m more than happy to answer any questions you have 🙂

  1. I haven’t congratulated you yet! Congrats on your domain! I had a domain and I wasn’t happy with it so I’ll stick to a Blogspot URL until I feel ready for a domain. I completely understand why you want a new blog, I’ve done the same before. It’s a great start to the year!

    1. Aw, thank you petal! :] I love it…at the moment. I haven’t really done much messing about with it but I’m sure that will come with time! A new blog definitely has a better feeling…Let’s just hope that I don’t make this a habit every year ;] I forgot how much work goes into getting a blog off the ground! Haha.
