Hey guys.

This post isn’t going to be too long.  It’s already 3am and I have a 9:30am class (I know, I’m crazy). Just wanted to make a quick update because I won’t be able to write much this week. Since my Thanksgiving Break starts Friday, of course I’m swamped with papers and projects for the rest of the week. While I won’t be able to post much (if at all), I did want to fill you guys in on what I have planned for the blog.

So, I finally thought of a title (yay!). I think it’s fitting for what I want this blog to be about. It’s not genre-y and it leaves things open enough for me to blog about whatever I want. The reason I haven’t retitled it yet is because I wanted to wait until I’ve finished final layout for this blog (which I’m currently working on). As well as finalizing the template, I’m also working on the external pages (About the Blog, Q&A, and more).  I like the way WordPress allows bloggers to create sections and organize information in a more user-friendly way. This was a feature that I always wished Blogger had (maybe they do and I just didn’t know how to use it) but I’m definitely going to take advantage of it here.

I don’t know how, but traffic to this site is higher than traffic to Love is a Minefield was. And only a few of you followed me over here so (I don’t think) you’re the ones showing up in my stats. That means that somehow people are finding this blog, which I didn’t expect to happen.  I didn’t intend on making this blog a “This is My Life” blog in the first place, but knowing people are reading makes me feel more inclined to offer useful information.  While I do plan on writing about things in my life and from my personal perspective, I still want some structure/objectivity on this blog as well. So, in addition to personal blogging, I’m going to create some pages where I’ll link to other related articles and blogs.  Buuut, without the knowing the title and purpose of this blog, it may be kind of hard for you guys to envision all of this, so I’m going to just leave it at that for now 😛

Anyway, you guys will see the framework for all of this in the next week. I’d prefer it happen all at once, but that would mean sitting at the computer for 3+ hours and that kind of time is definitely a luxury. 19 credit hourss + 3 hours of independent study + a part time job = very little “me” time, let a lone time for blogging.  So, stay tuned for the changes and don’t be alarmed if the blog is looking out of sorts. As of this Friday, it’ll be under construction until further notice.

As for the emails and comments inquiring about this, in the VERY near future, I plan on posting details about my trip to Paris (December 27!), the exhibit I’m co-curating, and the summer research program I’m applying for.

Soooo yeah! There’s going to be a lot happening here in the next few weeks, it’s just a matter of finding the time to do all of it. I plan on spending a lot of my Thanksgiving Break working on the blog so bear with me 🙂

Hope you guys are enjoying your week so far. If you’re in the Midwest, your Indian Summer is probably over too, and the cold, rainy weather is back with a vengeance. Sucky.

Anyhoodles, I’ll try to check back in before the weekend. If I don’t, look for me next week.

xo,
Syd
