So Relatable


It's probably obvious after five months without a new post, but my blogging days have trailed off. I could blame the blogosphere itself, which would at this point recoil at being called "the blogosphere." Now, it's a platform, a media package, a sponsored campaign. But it's not just the changing times. My blog, while mildly popular, was never a big player, and I never minded. I liked the freedom I had to post whatever I wanted, whenever I felt like it. I loved the conversations we had in the comments, the friendships we forged over the last 12 or so years. I've met some of my closest friends and best internet pals through blogging, and I'll always be grateful to it. 

But things have changed, namely me. I'm a little older, a little wiser. I still want to share all the best parts of my life, but I'm craving a different setting. An intimate space that offers more room than an instagram caption, and more privacy than a public blog. Which is a long way of saying I'm launching a weekly newsletter

So Relatable (a play on a common writing workshop critique, about which I have many thoughts we may explore in a future issue) will be about creative projects, ambitious goals, great reads, delicious snacks, tiny budgets, and my latest Trader Joe's obsession. Basically, all the same things I've been blogging about for over a decade, but delivered straight to you inbox. Think of it as a tiny love letter from me to you, because that's how I'm treating it. 

It goes without saying that I'd be honored if any longtime readers migrated from this space to that one, but I'll say it anyway. I'd be honored if you subscribed to So Relatable. I plan to publish the first issue on Sunday, February 3, and every Sunday after, for as long as we're having fun. And oh, we will have fun.
