My name’s Carrie, and I guess I’ve been kind of a serial monogamist with blogs. In high school I first started writing on mindsay, I think. What happened to that? Haven’t heard of it in years so I’m guessing not much. Then my emo spirit started craving company so I switched to xanga since that seemed to be where all my fellow emo high-schoolers were typing out their woes. When that blog fizzled and died I took a hiatus. My next blog experiment was an account of my summer in Kenya (2007) and was written on blogger. I stayed on blogger and finally began writing more regularly at www.journeylost.blogspot.com after graduating from college and joining the Peace Corps. It was mostly a Peace Corps blog but I stayed there for a year after returning and tried to make myself write regularly. Until recently, when a web-savy friend finally convinced me of the super-sexy ways of wordpress. I started looking around here and was easily convinced. I like that it’s more customizable, cleaner-looking, and spunkier. Who knows, maybe I am still serially monogamous with my blogging platforms and will end up switching again in another two years. But for now, I like it here and I hope to stay. See, I’ve had my high school blogs, my travel blogs (here and here) and my Peace Corps blog. I kind of want this to be more cozy, comfy, all-encompassing, my LIFE blog. So here’s to giving it a go. Cheers.
