Brand New Blog, Brand New Fucking Attitude

Hey there, monkey butts.

I know I’ve been whining off and on about the name Craftwhack, and how it doesn’t represent what I’m blogging about, so I up and DID something about it. Doesn’t it feel good do actually DO things instead of just wishing they would happen? I need more of that in my life.

Anyway, here I am, in my fresh new digs. I know it’ll be a little adjustment for you all, and some of you might even curse me. I am still cursing the Sears Tower for changing to the Willis Tower. Craftwhack is more fun to say than It’s All So Funny, but read my new about page to see why I named it thusly.

What do you think?

It’s weird how a blog grows and how your attitude as the blog owner can shift so dramatically over time, but this feels better. This feels like it can encompass a whole lot more of what I want to do here, which is still a lot of dumbness, actually.

I’ll still tweak around my blog and make it more personal, but for now I wanted to hurl myself off the abyss of fresh starts, so I hope you do an awkward little happy dance with me. Or at least a mini butt shake. I’ll even take a subtle nod.

Now go on, wrap your arms around the computer and slam that cheek right up to the screen, because I want to give you a hug of fondness and pat you on your fuzzy little head.

Here’s a photo of me that I stylized so you can’t see my horrible lines developing on my forehead and eyes. Just so you know it’s still really me. Proof:

    This is pretty freakin awesome! What a fresh new start!

    I have been feeling "blah" about my space lately … don't know if its all the nagativity streaming the web or if its just me. I can't seem to get a handle on words.

    Thanks for this post.

    Your new start and fresh look is great and inspiring 😉

    I hear ya about the words. I go for long stretches of time feeling majorly verbally awkward, but this time it was actually time to make a big change. I had to decide whether or not I wanted to keep plugging away or make a big change….

    Can you do that to a picture of me please? You look 12. As much as I love new beginnings, I can't possibly press my cheek to my screen I'd catch Ebola.

      12 is what I strive for, thank you. I feel sad that you didn't cheek your computer, but I'll settle for a loud HEY-OH! when you get a chance.

    Congrats! Your new name is great and definitely why I love your blog. You really do see the humor in the everyday and I find it so entertaining to read!!!

    Awesome new site! I sometimes lament the fact that my blog is called "thismummaslife" because it is not 100% about motherhood. It mostly is, but sometimes I want to talk about art, or directing the Vagina Monologues, or books I am reading…

    I came here from a link on pinterest, and as I was reading I thought "This blogger reminds me of 'Creafwhack'" Haha. 🙂 So glad it is you!!

    You're just like a Kardashian, what with your branding and rebranding efforts that keep the cool kids a-runnin'.

    Yep, I included myself in that list.

    Just plowed through a few of the new posts. Love! And the new pic is awesome. I also approve of utilizing photo effects like most women use full coverage makeup.

    You had me at monkey butts.

    I was just wondering the other day what you've been up to in the blogosphere, and bam! Just found ya via my old subscription to Craftwhack. Yay!
