Why Blog Again?
The SamanthaSews blog has been a long time coming. I’ve had the domain sitting dormant for 4 years now, waiting. And after something sits for a while, it becomes a “thing”. Like, “whatever I write better be worth the wait”. And so the wait just gets longer, and starting becomes more of a “thing”, and the spiral continues.
Luckily for all of us, I just returned from an incredible trip to Jaipur, India, that was all about fabric and making things. I have so many pictures and experiences that I want to share. Of course, I’m already overthinking about “what will I write about after India?” But I’m determined to start here, start somewhere, and the rest will follow.
I loved blogging on Fluffyland (12 years’ worth!) but it was time for something different. And that brings us to here, now. Still me, Samantha, sharing pictures of my projects and adventures. Fluffyland – a name that I came up with at age 14 by writing different happy words on a scrap of paper – just doesn’t fit me anymore. And that’s okay.
And why not just stick to Instagram? I love Instagram, and it’s so easy. But I also love writing. I love typing with more than just my thumbs. I love telling all of a story – not just what fits in a textblock. And some moments can’t be distilled to just a handful of pictures. But most of all? I love reading blogs, and I cherish the blogs that remain active on my feed reader. So I’m hoping to do my part to keep this medium alive.
