This past December, when this domain/hosting package was set to renew, I decided not to renew my hosting plan. I hadn’t posted since before Dragon*Con in August, and to be honest, I didn’t have that good of a time at the convention in 2014 and I sort of found myself burnt out. I was tired of spending money on frivolous things, tired of feeling like others assumed that I was only on the geek scene because it was “in” thing. TV was oversaturated with shows based on comic book characters – I couldn’t keep up with it all. Add that to the fact that I fell in love with someone who is not into all of that (he actually just watched ‘The Walking Dead’ about a month ago**), and I decided that I was done.
I’m dipping my toes back into the water though. I missed this blog, though working on my other blog and starting up a small business has kept me busy (more on that business later). I have a few things planned for the future that requires me to start taking steps now. Before, after I started The Southern Belle Blogs, I found myself a little confused sometimes about what post would go there and what would go here. Now I have a concrete vision for the future.
While I backed up my original files – for my own personal records – I don’t plan on dredging up the past. I am starting fresh. I am starting now (though I may repost some of my convention reports at some point, those are always interesting to read).
I’m not going to go crazy. My boyfriend and I, though we’ve been dating for a while now, have yet to see a movie in theaters yet, so there probably won’t be many movie reviews. We just have other things that we would rather do. I don’t plan on going to Dragon*Con this year, though I’m getting the itch to go when I see friends talking about it on Facebook.
Besides… I still have a stack of business cards to give out. I shouldn’t waste them.
** Side bar: My boyfriend has become a huge fan of ‘The Walking Dead’.
