a new direction

Hey, friends.

I’m going to switch things up on the blog. Sure, I still want to be a travel blog, but not in the way I was trying to force myself to be. I don’t want to give you advice or “tips & tricks”. Honestly, just pick up a guidebook for those. Rough Guides is my favorite so far. (Lonely Planet can get stuffed.)

I’m going to change my blog name (eventually). Maybe I’ll even switch from WordPress to Blogger (gasp! has anyone in the history of blogging ever done it that way around?). I’m going to focus on stories. I’ve been longing for the “good ol’ days” of blogging, wishing I had started 10 years ago instead of last December. When the community felt smaller and people felt less pressure about every little single thing they posted.

But why can’t I still blog like that? I have the right to do whatever I want with my little corner of the internet.

I’m still going to be a primarily travel blog, but with the vibe of MegFee, KJB, ScarpheliaSuperlativelyRude, and ThisBatteredSuitcase. The people that made me want to blog in the first place.

So let’s see how this goes!
