I decided to start a new blog from scratch for a few reasons. The first was purely out of laziness. I created my old blog using my old email with my maiden name in it. That meant that whenever I wanted to blog I had to sign out of my new Google account and sign in to my old Google account. It might not sound bad but it felt like a huge pain. There could have been a way to switch the email associated with it, but I couldn’t figure it out. Another reason I wanted to switch things up was that I really hated my old blog’s name pretty much immediately. I mean, Trista’s Gobbledygook? WTH was I thinking?! I could barely remember how I spelled it. And it hardly gave an indication of the content. Finally, the content of what I posted was just too random. One day I’d write about the dog and the next month (which was the next time I blogged) was about salad. Unacceptable.
The content of Crafting and Cardigans will still be a little scattered, but hopefully I’ll be inspired to blog a little more often so that things feel consistent. I’m a wife, daughter, sister, friend, graduate student and bureaucrat who cooks, crafts, reads, and shops, and that’s pretty much what I’m going to be writing about. Also, I will occasionally end sentences with a preposition. Let’s go ahead and agree now that we won’t get upset about that. Agreed? Good.
