When I was a teen, I started a Blogger site so I could talk with impunity. When I became a professional, I changed my blog to be more professional and click-bait-y. During this time I also started sending emails to a list every week — emails that I now consider spam-y. I stopped the emails because I realized I don’t read weekly email updates from anyone else. Now, I find myself reading and following a specific type of online author. So specific, in fact, that there is a bit of a community to their websites (see below). I want to join that club. So for the second time, I’m changing my blog. New WordPress theme, new writing theme. The latter is undecided, but is sure to be eclectic.
