Post image for Blogging and Creative Reinvention

About a year ago, I redesigned Comma ‘n Sentence and started to get serious about blogging about social media. During my year-long journey, I have trudged through the depths of social media, exploring how it affects our relationships and lives.

Now, to be honest, I’m kind of over social media – until something or someone new revolutionizes the current scene, I can no longer imagine myself getting excited about it. However, that doesn’t mean I want to stop blogging.

In the year and a half since I started this blog, a lot has happened to me: I finished my Master’s degree, I entered “the real world”, I moved out of my parents’ house, and I learned how to navigate a lot of “grown-up” issues like health insurance and making decisions about my career path.

When I feel stale, I like to reinvent myself, which is what I have done. As you can see, I’ve redesigned the layout. I’m also going to be covering more subject matter: writing, teaching, exploring current events and pop culture, living outside of New York City, and navigating friendships and dating in the Internet age.

I was recently offered an opportunity that may or may not be the key to helping me pursue my dream job: being a full-time creative writing professor. I hope to blog about teaching, new things that I read, the creative process, staying inspired, and being yourself in a society that expects you to be everything but yourself.

I hope you will continue to follow me in this journey, and I appreciate you for reading regularly. If you have any suggestions or thoughts, please feel free to leave a comment!

I like the actual way stuff’s laid out on the page here, but the pink really makes me really embarrassed to view this in public. Just a bit too girly.

Definitely prefer the green. This one reminds me of

I like the pink–my masculinity is not threatened. It’s bright and cheerful….
