Moving On

This blog has been around a long time now. Over eight years, to be exact. It’s been a constant companion through many ups and downs in my life and is chock full of memories. Some good, some bad. I am thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to chronicle my life here.

Don’t worry, I’m not “quitting.” But I am making some changes.

A few months ago, I decided to tie this blog in with my website/portfolio. Having done so, I would like to give it a more professional feel and shift its focus to business-related articles, and maybe even a little fiction now and then. Gotta showcase my skills a little better, and doing so on a platform with my name makes the most sense.

But blogging is in my blood, so you’re not getting rid of me that easily. I’ve started a brand new blog and invite you to bookmark it and follow along, if you’d like.

I’m calling it Raincoats to Parkas. Just click the link and hit subscribe to follow along, or copy and paste the URL if you’re into doing things manually:

I’ve already got a post up that will explain what a “swinged cat” is.

2018 is a year of change for me and Tara, and the new blog embraces that. I’m going to focus on what it’s like to uproot your whole life and start fresh in a brand new part of the country. It’s going to be quite the journey, and I would love it if you followed along!

I’m going to immerse myself into the new blog more than I’ve done so here. You can expect more frequent and a wider variety of posts. Random thoughts, inspiring quotes, interesting articles I stumble upon. And photos, of course.

Are you ready?

Let’s go!

  1. You may want to consider adding the types of genres (if any) you prefer for book editing to your hire me page. I trust you are capable of editing anything, but it’s always nice to know you aren’t torturing your editor by sending them something they are going to hate.

    Followed your other site too.
