Well, it’s been nearly 2 years since I stopped by to visit you guys! What the hell, Christa?
I actually wanted to pop in to let any new visitors know that I’m starting a new blog & won’t be posting here anymore after today.
This book/fandom blog was an AWESOME leap into blogging for me. I made some of the best damn friends I’ve ever had and really got to feel a part of something for a while.
And then I got a new day job and life got crazy, and… you know how it is. But the good news is that I’m coming back! Just with a slightly different direction. My new blog is called Reluctant Adulting and
is currently hosted on Wix [update Jan 2019 – I’ve moved back to WordPress!]. As the blog tagline suggests, it’s “a blog for millennials who should probably get their shit together but don’t really want to.”
The purpose of this new blog is mixed:
- I need to keep flexing my writing muscles since I write on a daily basis for my day job.
- I don’t have nearly as much time to devote to reading and/or TV watching as I used to, so I need a broader range of topics to write about.
- I kinda just wanted a clean blogging slate, so to speak.
I’ll still be nerding out about books & comics because it’s still a huge part of who I am, but now those posts will be intermixed with tales of my adventures in adulting.
I’ve got a lot planned for this new space, including:
- meal planning & productivity hacks
- recipe testing
- mental health updates
- general random thoughts
- personal discovery
- financial responsibility
… you know. The adulty things that none of us want to deal with, but probably should anyway.
I have already posted my introduction if you want a taste of what’s to come. I have a lot of work to do on the site & content planning, but I’ll be launching the blog officially this spring, so please swing by & say hello!
