Please visit me on my new blog

I did it.

I finally got around to re-designing my blog.

And on top of that, I got a new URL and e-mail address to go with it.

So I will no longer update this site (though it’s been awhile since I last posted here). Please visit my new blog at www.theemdash.com, and feel free to e-mail me at emily@theemdash.com.

Along with journalism, my life and social media, I also plan to write about DIY projects, recipes and other fun. I also have a new Etsy store, Em Dash Designs.

So bookmark it. Read it. Enjoy it.


Filling my online toolbox

Fact: I keep coming across Web and smartphone tools that I’m interested in but forget about shortly after hearing about them.

Fact: When I need a tool, I come up shorthanded.

Fact: I love lists.

So to help me remember all the tools at my disposal, I’ve started a “Tools I Love” list on this site. You can find it above under “dash.”

A lot of things recently have made me reevaluate the person I am and where I’m at in my life — not the least of which is the fact that I’m turning 30 in October.

On one hand, I feel like I can still get into the head of the person I was at 22, when I was living in Bakersfield. But then again, I go over all the things that have happened since then and know that I must have changed.

And lately, I feel like I’ve slacked off on many of my hobbies and taking journeys, which is what made the decade following high school so much fun.

So this has been running through my head, and then I saw friend Maggie Creamer’s blog “Sometimes you need that.”
