I’ve finally moved my blog to my own site. Huzzah! This is my new online home. It’s taken me such a long time because I kept wanting to do everything myself, which created a towering mountain of stuff I needed to learn. Learning for which I didn’t find enough time. It wasn’t until I realized that, really, I don’t have to do everything myself and I could just find a theme and plugins to do the things I wanted, that I actually did what I’ve wanted for so long. To feel like I have total control over how my content gets displayed.
But Eefje, you ask, you haven’t been blogging much anyhow, how much content will you actually share on this site? A good question, hypothetical reader who I just totally made up. It has been a long time since I had any recognisable posting schedule and the truth is that I miss it. I just wasn’t capable of doing it for a long while because of all sorts of life reasons. For the most recent example: remember when I had started making booktube videos? Way back in the ancient internet history of about 6 months ago. (See my last blog posts before this.) I was really into it and having all sorts of plans and ideas to make a video a week. And then my back started hurting again and I couldn’t sit at my computer editing all that time in addition to my full-time job. Okay, I thought. I’ll just take a little break. Winter is coming and I’m always more on the winter depression side anyway, so it’s fine if I don’t keep up with the same schedule. Really, it’ll just be a little break. Then I fell down the stairs and herniated a disc in my back. Yeah, I wasn’t doing anything anymore. It’s been a couple of months, but I’m able again. I’m still working on re-integrating fully at work. I’ve started doing yoga classes and actually feel really happy with that physical activity. I’m cautiously optimistic. Also winter is almost over. FUCK yesss!
I’m happy to be sharing things again, having this spiffy new online home makes me excited about everything I want to post. I want to talk about the things that matter to me. Show the things I make and see if I can document the changes over time. So expect to be seeing more of me right here on this blog.
