I've literally been blogging for six years. I literally chose the first blog style I literally saw and I have literally never changed it. But my old blog template started to give me mild creeps when I would see it just like my three-quarter-sleeve stretch cotton shirts with tie backs now give me mild creeps. Do you ever get mild creeps? It happens when something is not old enough to invoke nostalgia but too old to look new. I have a bunch of botanical prints (timeless) framed in cherry wood (mildly creepy) with forest green mattes (mildly creepy but will soon become nostalgic).
I sort of liked that I hadn't ever changed anything about my blog, but then I realized that just like people who don't watch Lost, abstain from soda, and refuse pain medication--it's a dumb badge of honor that no one else cares about.
So here's my new blog. Here's to six more years.
