Hi

A new blog. A whole new look. A whole new me.

The title is ah, representative of the incredible spirals of self-loathing that I can work myself into. The whole “verge of suicide” thing from May, remember? I think I am starting to overcome the cycle and see a future myself thanks to the concerted stubbornness of family, friends and antidepressants (Lexapro).

I wanted to inaugurate my new-found not-unhappiness with a new, completely not-unhappy blog, one that utilizes all of those lessons learned from my previous blogs.

Lessons Learned:

  • K.I.S.S. – pick something and stick with it. Don’t freaking hop around, reblog a bunch of junk and wonder what the hell you were thinking a full month later.
  • Keep it low-key. I maybe erred in starting off my previous tumblelog as something private, deciding that Tumblr was Teh Shit and plugging the blog into my domain, pimping the site out and then eventually moving away from it.
  • Tag it, title it. After I rolled the last tumblelog into my main WordPress site, I was left with about one hundred and fifty untagged, untitled posts that were mostly duplicates on content already on the main site. It was a freaking nightmare. A. Freaking. Nightmare.

So there you have it, folks!
