New home

After lots of back and forth, I’ve finally finished migrating web hosts, setting up my new domain name, and transferred all my content. Please roll out the welcome mat for my blog’s new home at!

Also of note: I’ve migrated my food blog to Courtney’s Bar and Kitchen, take a look if you’re interested in seeing all the food I cook and consume.

A blogger’s work is never done, though. I’m still continuing to edit tags, categories, fixing broken images, etc. But now that the most challenging part of the migration is behind me, I’m hoping to be posting here more often now.

As a long-time blogger, one of the ongoing issues for me is being self-conscious about my past content, and dare I say, about the person I used to be. I look back at some of the old entries I wrote, and sometimes I don’t even recognize the person who wrote them.

But then I think, that’s all a part of who I was, and those experiences led me to who I am today. So the content stays… for now. And the beauty of this being my blog is that I can always change my mind about that later. 😉


Hello again.

I’ve sat here with my WordPress dashboard open for weeks, thinking of what to write. I was thinking I needed to make some sort of grand announcement, write a massive catch-up post, or write something extremely witty and insightful.

Then I realized that this was holding me back. What I love about personal blogging is having a chronicle of where I was at, physically, mentally, and emotionally, at any given time.

Time to get over any anxieties that my writing isn’t good enough, that my creative projects aren’t polished enough, and if my daily life is interesting enough. Time to just write!

Hello, Friends.

Yes, it’s been a while, I know.

And no, I am not about to apologize for not being around, or not writing enough.

Life has been happening in full force, yet I’m not really compelled to write about it much anymore. My attempt to perhaps return to my older habits of blogging (of posting links of interest, random thoughts, etc.) along with my longer life-chronicle entries hasn’t really been successful… erratic at most. I think a lot of that has to do with the multitude of sites that I maintain a presence on currently. I guess, then, it boils down to the fact that I blame the internets for everything.

Just wanted to let you all know, yes, I’m still here… the entries will continue to be sporadic, but they will definitely continue.

It’s not like I’m hard to find or follow, anyway. 😉

Merry Merry

Holiday cheer

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it. This evening, I’m off to my Auntie’s house, where we will enjoy way too much food, the company of the most awesome relatives in the world, and a goofy white elephant gift exchange.

Tomorrow will be spent with the immediate family in the morning, and the latter part of the day with some of my most favorite people. I couldn’t wish for a better gift. 🙂

Hope your holidays are treating you all well, and if I don’t talk to you before then, happy happy new year, too!
