Rearranging the (Virtual) Furniture. . .

I changed things around again. It actually got to the point where I felt an urgency to change the previous header and background. It was completely impossible to resist. I actually felt like I might freak out if I had to look at the previous design for one more minute. So, rather than losing it, I just found something I like better. There's already plenty of pink in my life (huge understatement), so making a change here blog felt good and since my current interest is steampunk and this felt a little bit steampunk to me--no idea why, but it's pretty anyway, don't you think?--I went with it.

It would seem this is also my 380th post. I'm actually closing in on 400, which makes me feel awesome. For a long time, I felt like I was the kind of person who started things, but never finished anything. Then I graduated with my BA, which was huge. Then I graduated with my MA, which was even bigger. Two things, finished. So, while blogging doesn't exactly have a "finished" it's probably the only hobby I have that I'm interested in all the time and that I've stuck with for a long time--except maybe for gaming, which I've been doing for 14 years now, trumping my 10 years of blogging. Holy cow, I've been blogging for 10 years this April! That's outrageous. . . in a good way, of course. I've almost been blogging for a decade. Crazy!


  1. Right when I saw your new blog header, I was like, "This looks so steampunk!" before I even read your post. So yes, you achieved the look you were going for. I love steampunk, so I think this theme looks fantastic. It still has the "pretty", but it's an edgier pretty.

    Ten years of blogging...that is amazing. I'm getting ready to post my 500th entry on my blog, and I feel the same way you do. Even though there's no real "end" to blogging, it feels good to have an interest/hobby that's so solid and enduring.

  2. Awesome, that's exactly what I was going for! I'm so glad I got there. 500 posts is an AMAZING milestone! Congrats on that, for sure. :) Oh, and looking forward to seeing y'all's new blog. Can't wait!
