Let's Do This Thang

So, yeah. I'm back in the game, so to speak. I've been blogging off and on since the year 2000. (Remember that Conan O'Brien skit? Seemed like the year 2000 was so far in the future, and now it's so far in the past).

I had my own domain for about 2 years when I got into blogging, and then I was kind of done. I created another Wordpress blog back in 2007-2008, but I didn't put a lot of effort into it, and my interest fizzled quickly.

Strangely, I mostly have Twitter to thank for my new-found blogging desire. When Twitter first came out years ago, I scoffed and thought to myself, "What a dumb idea. Who wants to know every little thought that I have?" I made a vow to never use Twitter - and I was good on my word up until last August. Over time, I made some good connections with people on Twitter, most of whom have blogs that I've been reading for years.

Over the last few months, I've been talking with my husband Zac about wanting to get back into blogging, and he's super supportive. So, why not?

After mulling over domain and blog names for a couple of weeks, I bought via Name Cheap. For now, I'm going to use my free blogspot account until I figure out if I want to have hosting or not. Plus, I need to re-learn how to actually design. I hand-coded everything when I had my domain in the past, so it's kind of weird not doing it now.

I think that about sums it up for now. Hi! I'm Stephanie.
