Welcome to my new blog, Amy Reese Writes! Surprise, surprise! Please join me in celebrating my new beginning.
I am back from the abyss. Are you still with me? I had not intended to be gone so long. I had these four issues surface: 1) I got sick, 2) My computer got sick (still is), 3) I went out-of-town …and then, and then…4) I had a mid-life crisis.
I was struggling with my identity and paralyzed by fear, thinking that once I hit the publish button, you would all disappear. I had to remind myself that this is just a blog, and then I went and bought a theme and customized it. Did you know that you can get a refund on a domain, but not on a theme? You have that theme for life! I had no intention of doing this. It’s not like I bought a sports car or anything, right?
A lot of good came from the delay, however. Everything just kind of unfolded organically.
The first thing that happened was that I came across photographer, Brooke DiDonato. She’s a brilliant artist, living in New York City. When I saw her photos on Flickr, I knew I had discovered someone special. Her work is sensual, and sometimes strange and disturbing, which I love. I just stumbled across the photo in the header above, entitled, “Unrequited Love,” and had to have to it. I had my tag in my head before I saw her photo. Luckily, Brooke graciously has let me use this photo for my blog. Thank you so much, Brooke! Check out Brooke on Facebook. Should you like her page, she will delight you with intriguing photos in her updates. You won’t be disappointed.
The next thing that happened was that I actually had a phone conversation with fellow blogger, Anka from The Daily Grind. This would be the first time that I actually heard the voice of another blogger. Let me tell you, she is just as sweet as she is on her blog. Thanks for your help again, Anka.
Finally, my husband and I were discussing my blog on the trip and he said to me, “Why must The Bumble Files be gone forever?” Why, indeed. I decided I will incorporate The Bumble Files in my blog somehow. So, see, it’s not goodbye after all.
As for my new blog, Amy Reese Writes, I may have just as easily been amyreese.com, except that it was not available. It belongs to yet another Amy Reese, who was a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader. Are you off to Google her already? Wait a minute. Yeah, she’s hot and pretty. I would have to compete with a cheerleader, wouldn’t I? I believe she was a cheerleader over five years ago, but apparently still has many fans. I was a cheerleader once when I could do back flips, and when middle school was called junior high. I was, too.
Please consider my new space as a Work in Progress; I’m just moving in and getting a feel for the place. There are still boxes in the corner, but make yourself at home.
Welcome all! Cheers!viking_79 via photopin cc
