15 hours... my touchy feely post about WordCamPDX
Really, soon you won't have to do anything crazier than you'd normally do to read my posts.
When I started this blog nearly 2 years ago the name was an afterthought. I started it for myself, and at the time I didn't really grasp the far reaching tendrils of blogging. I didn't realize that writing this blog was going to become a daily part of my life. I didn't know that blogging would leave such a deep mark on my heart. That it would effect my husband's life. My daughter's.
It didn't occur to me that it would touch everything I do in some way.
I didn't realize that writing this blog would bring me out of myself.
That I would wind up meeting people not only over the vast internets but also right here at home.
So 2 years ago when I started this blog a name was just a name. 'Mommified Me' seemed to sum up nicely who I was and what was going on. The problem? It only made sense to me. A few people have gotten the real meaning of the title in the time I've been writing here. That these pages are a way to reflect the version of me that motherhood has brought about, and not that this blog is about being a mom.
The truth is that I write about such a broad range of topics here that mentioning "mom" in the title seems to be a bit restricting. I've known that for a while but very recently a friend gave me a piece of information that made me realize it was time to let go of my old title.
And what better time than now when all else with my blog is in transition.
Does that mean the content or aim of this blog will change? No. The content will still be the ramblings of CamiKaos. Sometimes I'll talk about things that mean the world to me sometimes I'll talk about a particularly tough stain in my last load of wash, you never know.
As for my aim? When I figure out what I'm aiming for I promise you'll be the first to know.
So without further ado I present to you the new name of my blog:
I know... has there ever been a more anticlimactic announcement ever? Maybe I'll had a snazzy subtitle...
For the first time since we ripped out our main floor bathroom my posts will all be variations on a theme this week. No it has nothing to do with remodeling our house, I've had quite enough of that for this year thank you very much...
Instead I'm going to be remodeling, reforming, transforming and fixing the space I write in. I mentioned it last week but it warrants repeating for several reasons (not the least of which is that it's what I came up with to write about). This week should see many changes around these parts, and while I hope that the end result will be pleasing (not just for me, I want you to be happy too.. really. As long as it doesn't put me out) it's going to take some time and energy for me to get there.
I've got a plan of attack ready, I know what needs to change, I'm ready. I'm wrapping myself up in a big bundle of nerves and time constraints and forging ahead, relocating my blog, changing it's name (more on that later) and probably losing my mind in the process since I'm also swept up in at least 2 other large projects this week.
On Saturday I attended WordCamPDX which answered a lot of questions that needed answering and raised about 6,000 more that I'm looking in to. I'll have an entire post on my experience at word camp later in the week but for now I leave you with this picture of Verso and I taken by Jane Wells.
Yeah, we rock... we know.
