I bought the website! This blog is (metaphorically) my property now.
Welcome to my home! It’s a little bit s c a t t e r e d right now, a pretty accurate description of my mind. I’m renovating a bit; I’m in the middle of a transition (but aren’t we always? wink) You’ll notice that I stopped squatting for free and finally started paying rent for this property.
I wasn’t expecting this shift anymore than you were. I just decided late one nigh (past 2AM, when I make my best decisions) to restructure the POV of my blog.
Never Stationary: my opinions are constantly evolving, as I gain more life experience.
And now, I’m changing my stance on the purpose of this blog.
I used to pride myself on being an amateur, but can no longer refer to myself as one, as I am now paying $99 a year (WordPress Premium DEAL) for the url catherinezhang.me.
In my amateur period, I was free to explore with few consequences, able to prioritize my own writing and wellbeing.
Since the birth of NS, I have revealed my full name, my university, and may end up posting a resume, like some of my peers have.
While I’m still unsure of which direction I’m headed, I know that 2015 will be a great year for writing. A few ideas I have cultivating inside my mind:
- formal interviews (I’m about to begin an intro level Journalism class!)
organized guest posting and collaborations with other blogs
more reviews of all sorts (music, movies, FOOD); practice makes nearly perfect
Thanks for sticking with me.
