First things first: I moved this blog from Blogger to its new home here on WordPress because I really like WP’s system.
I know this lil’ blog very likely wouldn’t feature on any “Whatever Happened To…?” kinda list, but I just wanted to post a small update thing here for yuks!
I loved posting to this blog. I started it back in 2007 because I was bursting with so many thoughts and feels about the music I was listening to that I just needed to write! (I continue to have way too many thoughts and feels about music.)
I haven’t blogged about music since my “Best of 2011” lists in (duh) 2011. Even before that my posts became few and far between – my schoolin’ was always my top priority, and as the years went by it amped up in coursework and involvement, especially in the semesters toward graduation.* As such, taking naps was my second-top priority. ;) Blogging, then, was pretty far down the list.
As dramatic as this sounds, I don’t have many regrets or things I wish I had done in my life, but I genuinely do wish I had made time to post to this blog even just every once in a while. I adore thinking about my favorite music and relish the challenge of articulating why this song gives me life or why that album is literal magic. Plus, I love what music blogs and reviews do. I can’t count how many artists or songs or albums that a passionate blog entry or an irresistibly described review got me into.
Hopefully 2016 will be the year I get back into blogging a bit. You never know! I already have a thing I wrote up about the songs and albums that defined my years and years (and years) as a student at the University of Maryland, plus a few other little posts I’d like to share. Just need to polish it all up a bit! In the meantime, you can find me posting on Tumblr from time to time.
So, this blog is still resting – I don’t really want to declare it dead just yet!
*I am proud to say that I graduated from UMD in December 2014 with my Bachelor of Arts in History and Women’s Studies!
