Welcome to the new GIRL BY THE LAKE!
Many hours were spent debating the decision to leave Tumblr and move my blog. In the end, however, my desire to truly OWN every little piece of my online world over-powered the need for simplicity.
somewhat obsessed with trying to fine tune all the little details on the site. For a very long time, I was a blog-switching-building-from-scratch machine. Decisions, designs, editing old posts, miscellaneous tasks, etc. You name it, I was obsessed with it. And then, I lost the desire. I couldn’t make decisions. Couldn’t decide what I liked. Started to procrastinate. It was awful and incredibly demoralizing. In the end, however, I decided to move forward with launching the new site KNOWING that things weren’t finished or even (dare I say it) perfect. So please excuse all the broken links and a general look of the site being unfinished. I have a vision, I promise!
On a positive note, I feel completely re-energized to get my post on. I’m actually very excited about getting back to a regular posting schedule!
Here’s what you can expect from the new site:
- Bugs. I’m still learning. Still editing. Still changing. Honestly, I’m probably going to need a solid 4-6 more weeks to get everything the way I’d like it to look. But who cares. (that’s my new mantra at least!)
- Recipes: these guys will be back and stronger than ever. I’m looking forward to showing some of the things I cook on a regular basis.
- DIY/LIFE/HOME DECOR: more of these kinds of posts. In addition to cooking, I’m a home design feign. I can’t wait to share more of this little passion!
Thanks for reading this little bit, and I hope you enjoy perusing the new site. Regular posts will resume tomorrow!
