A Toast to Transforming the Blog

Aside Posted on Updated on

blog to change your lifeI began this blog when I returned to undergraduate studies and believed it would document my experiences through Nursing School.  During the process, I found myself wanting to talk about any topic, except Nursing school and it became a place to recharge my soul batteries.   I also enjoyed posting book reviews and discussing different literary genres with readers. The blog’s transformation was gradual, and I was happy to let it happen, organically.

Yesterday, “Chronicles of a 40-Something Nurse Wannabe” evolved into “Reading, Drinking and Dancing with a Chaser of Snark.” The name and layout makeover reflected my blogging persona and recurring themes of this blog.   It bids fond farewell to a name that served me well, but no longer represents where I am in my life.  Hubby helped synthesize the name.   He does not know it yet, but I hope to interview him for future posts, to get “The Former Sergeant’s Perspective.”

Over the next weeks, you will see specific posts on designated days, especially featured book reviews.  There may even be a “Grand Opening.”  I will continue to discuss current events, reality television and topics that move me.   All previous posts were saved and may be read by searching by topic.

Thank you for being on this journey with me.   Stay tuned for more!

      Thanks, Susie! I think the re-branding fits me, and the overall direction the blog was already going. I appreciate your support. Stay tuned for more changes in the near future. 😀

    Woot! Re-branding sometimes is just what you need. That’s great you’re letting the blog grow and form into something new along with you. And Ooo love the idea of interviewing the hubby. How fun!

      I’ll be inviting my favorite book bloggers, like you, to do some guest posts and/or chats, Anna. It was time to move things forward and freshen up the blog’s chi. 😀
