Trying This Again

Today, on a whim, I created a new blog.

I let my domain expire… but that’s not exactly the real story. I wanted to let it expire and let web nature take its course, but I started getting daily reminder e-mails from my host about my outstanding invoice. It proved effective in the bugger department, so I decided to not do the lazy thing and canceled it with my own two hands. That’s it for carnivalous.org.

I’m going straight for the guts with the following life updates:

  1. I’m married. For almost two years now. I married my long-time partner in early 2013 and…
  2. We have a kid. Olive is 1 1/2 years old now and is the absolute, most-flattering-for-selfies-light of my life. Wait, it gets better.
  3. I’m pregnant! I should be giving birth early next year. Look at me starting a little family.

Pretty major things. I’d put “I’m unemployed” as the fourth one, but I’m not really feeling it. But I am (unemployed). I handed in my resignation before the arrival of my firstborn. It’s one of the reasons I refused to buy a new domain. I don’t want to spend what’s left of my money paying for something I probably won’t get to use as often as I’d like. Parenthood eats up all of my time.

I’ll try to do better and maybe include a photo or two in the succeeding posts. I’m not sure who reads blogs anymore but I’ll also probably announce it some time and just hope that I don’t blog in vain. I feel like I don’t know how to do this anymore.

Do I say bye?
