Blogging, Rants & Reflections

Did my relationship replace my blog?? (and P.S. I got engaged!)

Why hello there. How do I start these things, again? Ahem. I would like to talk to you about blogging and relationships. As you may or may not know, in my youth, I was a regular blogger.

Oh hi blog. It's been a minute. This post is gonna be just plain ranty and about nothing much in particular. Have a popcorn.

Breaking News: Following non-WordPress blogs on your WordPress reader

GUYS. I made a shocking discovery yesterday after my post on Bloglovin' and Litsy and how those platforms didn't work for me. I talked about how I'd love to follow more non-WordPress blogs, but going to a separate reader feed does not appeal to me because I like everything all in one place.
