Recently I noticed some weird stuff going on with my previous domain. I’m not sure if anyone else did but I could tell something had been changed or messed with. I had no idea how to fix it, what really happened, or what was going on. At the same time I felt that I had outgrown that domain and blog. I had it for years. I wasn’t feeling the name anymore. There were way too many old and outdated posts. I had thought about just going through and deleting some but that felt like too much work. Then when the weirdness started, I figured why not just start fresh. I was honestly surprised this domain name was available because it seemed so simple! But I’m glad it was. B is a name I’ve been called online (and now in person) since I started using message boards many moons ago. Remember those? And AIM and all that fun stuff? It just felt like an obvious choice and a name that I wouldn’t grow out or tired of.
I’m not going to lie though. I felt very stressed out starting a new blog. I honestly wasn’t blogging that often on the old one. And I noticed a lot of friends had stopped or slowed down on their blogging too. Did I really need a new space? Did I want to put money out for it? Sure, I could have found a free host but I like to own whatever outlet I’m writing on. I’m way too picky when it comes to layouts/themes to be stuck using a limited amount of them. I do like having my own little corner of the web. Something that belongs to me.
Right now I’m in the process of moving a few posts over from the old place. It’s not many but it’s the posts that I felt were really good or benefited others, like my Elhoffer Design fit/size guide, my posts about laser hair removal, and a handful of others. Most of them are already here and just waiting to be published but I just need to find tune them and make sure there aren’t any issues with images or links. I’ll try to stagger them when posting. I don’t want anything to come across as spam!
And that’s it. I honestly have no idea how often I’ll be blogging. But I do know that I would miss having an outlet if I didn’t do this. I do miss writing, I just need to find that spark to get back into it. Maybe this move is the spark that will set everything ablaze.
