If you’re reading this, you’ve probably noticed a few things that have changed around here. A new blog has been born, complete with a semi-sarcastic name but with a lot of truth to it. I guess this is where I explain, so I’ll get to it.
Shortly after I took a blogging sabbatical, I realized that I had strayed from all of the reasons that I had started this blog years ago. I have always loved writing, always. And I always seem to get myself into the weirdest situations and a dear friend urged me to start documenting it on the internet for the world to read. That’s what I did. But then I got into blogging and was surrounded by a lot of people who took it very seriously. This rubbed off on me, in a big way.
I turned into a perfectionist, which is something that I don’t generally strive to be, and this place became a place of anxiety and stress for me. More of a commitment than an outlet. As I thought long and hard about what I wanted from blogging, it was simple: community and writing. Maybe that means outfit posts and recipes but it doesn’t mean that I have to do anything. Ever. Because this is my space and I’m blogging for me.
Changing the name of this blog wasn’t something that I took lightly. But I had come to resent “with a CH” and the whole idea of being a brand was too much for me, so I knew I had to cut it loose. I hope you all don’t hate me for it!
If you have made it this far in this post, thank you. You are the reason that I’m back. I have missed you all, greatly. I’m still sprucing up the site a bit, so if you see anything wonky, etc. please let me know!
