I first launched Diary of a Smart Chick in 2009 as a way to share links to a variety of things I was writing elsewhere on the web. Later it evolved into a personal blog, sometimes a photo dump spot, and more recently a place that I shared reviews, academic writing, and general thoughts.
In Fall 2017, I sold my crochet blog Crochet Concupiscence. Unfortunately, there was a technical error when I handed over those files, and I accidentally gave over the old files from this blog as well. When I got them back, I made some mistakes; sadly I lost a lot of that original content.
But, when one door closes, as they say … After leaving this blog quiet for nearly a year, I’m ready to get it going again. I will be going through old files on the web, mostly using Wayback Machine, and bringing some of my best old posts back to life here. This will serve as an archive or portfolio of my best work and favorite writing memories.
Additionally, I’ll be moving forward with new writing. Once again, this will become a personal blog. However, I intend to focus more on creating high-quality original work in specific topic areas. It will continue to be a place for people to get to know me, see my interests and explore my writing. I look forward to what new things it might bring.
