To be totally honest I was never in love with the original title for this blog. In fact there were times when I downright hated it.
Firstly it was too long. I also noticed that others politely shied away when trying to make mention of it in shout-outs, pingbacks, or reblogs. And I was starting to find the overly cutesy alliterative title: Miscellaneous Musings of a Middle-aged Mind, well a little annoying.
However in my own defense it was the first acceptable name I came up with when I decided to go ahead with this blog. And knowing how much of a perfectionist I can be, I forced myself to go ahead with it… at least until I could come up with something I liked better. Otherwise I knew it might take months (which it did – 10 to be exact!) to make a decision. Or worse; I’d change my mind about blogging and this whole thing would have never seen the light of day.
So without further ado: Welcome to Norm 2.0 !
And for those newer followers who are wondering where the new title comes from, you can read about it here: The Day I almost Died.
It seems that what started last spring as a place to display my creative writing projects, opinion pieces, and my different writing styles for potential freelance clients has morphed into more of a photography blog, with an occasional writing post thrown in.
You know what? I like it like this.
With that in mind I can tell you the content won’t change much, though I may tweak the appearance a bit here and there. All of my regular photo features will stay and I will try to take part in a few more photo challenges this year.
I do want to include a few new writing features, and spend more time telling you about the very special corner of the world I live in as well. So please stay tuned, there may be a few little additions in store later in the year.
In the meantime I have enjoyed meeting other photographers and writers from all over the world to share our thoughts, opinions, and ideas in this wonderful place we call the WordPress community.
I thank every single one of you for clicking that follow button here as well as on Twitter. Your likes, favs, and mostly your comments and encouragement have convinced me that I made the right decision when I first hit Publish on my very first post back in April 2014
Now I just need to figure out how, or even if I need to, change the URL over to something a little easier to find as well.
Here’s to what’s to come: Cheers and as always Thanks so much for looking 🙂
