Life, Left Over

Archive for January 2012

Hi everyone! I’m still struggling with an abysmally old laptop (we did get our w2 today, so the tax return should be forthcoming, and the computer repairs or new computer soon after). I just felt like checking in around here. Not that it seems like anybody has missed me.

My main purpose in writing this is to talk about the changes that I’ve been mulling over. The time off has given me time to think about my blogging, my crafting, my etsy-ing, and a whole bunch of other stuff. And changes are coming.

First and foremost, I think I should warn you that this particular blog will be going away. I feel the need for a name-change. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know when it happens. I might re-name my Textbook Leftovers site as well. I agonized over that name for months before launching, but I fear that I’m unhappy with it. Anybody have any good ideas for a new name? I’m open to suggestions.

I’m also going to be making changes over at Etsy. When my current listings expire (only a few weeks to go), I’ll not be renewing them. Some of them will indeed make a return, but a lot of them won’t. I am going to strike out anew with a fresh direction. More nerdy, more functional. I’m still hammering out my “mission statement,” but I want my shop to reflect my desire for my own life to reflect my sense of fun and enjoyment even in the mundane things. I’m also working on several new branches of craftiness, and the shop will probably reflect that.

As far as the content of my blogging, I’ll still be sticking to a schedule, but it’ll probably change a bit. I really enjoy the Web roundup, although I might move it to Sundays or Saturdays (or maybe even Friday) – Wednesday is just an awkward day in terms of the flow of the internet. Secondly, I may end up cutting the strict conformity to “food this day” and “this this day” – or I may not. We’ll see. I’d like to spend more time sharing my thoughts and ideas, and I really want to build a discussion with my readers. For the love of Gandalf, please ENGAGE. I come to the internet to CONNECT and that’s what I want out of my blog. I want to post things and then talk about it! God I love to talk. Talk to me! 😀

I want to point out that I have been back on Google Reader, devouring my feeds, and that includes sharing things on Google Plus. So please, if you’re interested, go hunt me down and add me. I try to share crafty things that catch my eye, various news or entertainment articles that interest me. I do occasionally post politically-related things, but I try to keep it to a minimum. Let’s talk, let’s discuss. Let’s agree or disagree, just let’s do it kindly. 😀 This link should get you to my G+ profile. If not, let me know.

Okay, let’s see, I’ve talked about the name-change, the Etsy changes, the blog schedule, G+… What else did I want to say…

I think that’s it! 😀 Thanks for listening, and I hope to hear from you soon. 🙂
