Certifiable? Why, Yes!

girl-at-deskSo… we’re back at http://www.naptimenovelist.com.

Surprised?  Shocked?  Or did you fully expect this transition back to my roots?

Brief history:  I started my blog with the name A Naptime Novelist.  It fully expressed my life then:  I wrote and I mothered.  Last year, in a fit of distrust of myself and what I was doing, as well a desire to be more “professional,” I changed the blog to http://www.rhondaortiz.com.  I also changed the way I blogged, focusing more on my literary and intellectual interests and less on poop.  Oh, poop, glorious poop.

Nothing wrong with being professional.  Professional is good.   I consider myself a professional.

This week I received an anticipated but unwelcome email, reminding me that it was time to pay for the next year of web hosting.  This reminded me of my goals in moving to a self-hosted site – goals which I had not met.  Not even one.  It’s hard to justify paying for self-hosting when I’m small-potatoes and when I don’t want advertising on my site.

My decision last year was an impulsive decision.  This is not new.  Being bipolar (and not having it diagnosed until just this past December), I often find myself suffering from my own hasty decisions – it’s symptomatic of the illness.   The decision to change my site disappointed a bunch of folks (okay, my mother and a few friends).  People actually like all the navel-gazing.  And as I returned to more personal blogging, the ethos of The Naptime Novelist rose from the ashes.

After all, I still write and I still mother.  Not much has changed.

So here we are.  Back and crazier than ever.  Enjoy.

    Here’s to hoping the writing continues…..I’ve been thinking about your plot line ever since you told me about it last month on your visit.
    good luck!
