Moving Forward

Now that I’ve officially announced my intent to transition this blog into something new (some of the things such as the title, etc., will be changed in the coming weeks), I wanted to give just a little preview of some of the things that I may write about here.

  • Bookish posts. Look, this is no longer a book blog, but books are still important to me. That means lists of book recommendations, wrap-ups when I feel like it, and maybe more dedicated posts on specific books. Dedicated posts will likely be more analysis-oriented, whereas the sort of “is this worth reading” reviews will remain on my GoodReads only.
  • Writing posts. Maybe related to goals on specific projects. Possibly writing samples from my novels or flash fiction pieces. Who knows? I don’t, or I’d have more to say on this piece.
  • Gaming posts. I don’t identify as a gamer, really, but I do play enough that I’ll probably mention it here and there.
  • Yoga posts. I’ve been practicing yoga since August of 2016. I took an impromptu time off from it after graduating from college, but I’m back and more dedicated than before. I have a lot of goals for myself when it comes to yoga. I also might be learning more about the spiritual side of the practice along the way, because I find that stuff fascinating, so maybe I’ll discuss my thoughts on that.
  • Speaking of the spiritual… I’m considering documenting my journey toward fulfillment in that area on this blog as well. It’s been a while since I still considered myself a Catholic. About a year and a half ago, I had started looking into paths to which I felt more called but had to put that aside as I felt like I needed to focus on the job hunt and felt guilty pursuing other things with my free time. And then I found a job! But I never picked the other stuff back up. I thought I might be content just leading a 100% secular life and calling myself an agnostic (even toyed with the word atheist for a bit), but it’s not entirely right for me. I know I believe in science. But I also believe in something more… I just haven’t quite figured out what that something might be yet.
  • General life posts. What am I up to lately? Good question. I wish I had a good answer.
  • No career posts.  It’s not that I have nothing to say; it’s more that I’d like to keep my professional life separate from everything else as much as possible. I am still figuring stuff related to that, too, but it’s probably for the best if I keep my thoughts in a more private space than this.

If there’s anything specific you’re interested in seeing, feel free to let me know in the comments. If you have any advice for me as I transition the blog and move forward, I’d love to hear that too. Otherwise, thanks for reading!
