A Change of Pace, a Change of Name

Well, some (okay so like two) big things have happened in the three months since I last posted.

The first big thing is that Jeff and I moved in together! We found a nice little town home and promptly set about to decorating it with all sorts of geeky paraphernalia (okay, so that part was mostly me). It’s a bit of a shame that we’ll only be here for a year before moving back to Japan, but only a bit.

The other big thing that happened is I’ve revamped Slomads into my own personal website. It was basically my own personal site to begin with–Jeff had like, two whole posts that he made?–except all I ever posted about was travel (when I posted at all). With our Big Trip over, I figured I had three options:

  1. Post on Slomads only when travel was happening, which would be about as often as I posted anyway;
  2. Delete Slomads altogether and give up trying to be a blogger; or
  3. Change the domain name so I can keep all the content and continue using the platform for my translation and writing endeavors.

So, Slomads got a bit of a make-over, and here we are.

Which begs the question: Now what?

Well, I’m going to be tinkering with the site over the next couple of weeks-to-months-to-years and see if it’s going to be anything more than a glorified DeadJournal (yeah, I was THAT kid). A consistent posting schedule is the first item on my to-do list for this place, but I’m not quite sure what I want “consistent” to mean yet. And I’m debating whether I should go back and change all the watermarks on the photos so they say “Kristin Osani” instead of “Slomads Travel.” That sounds like a long, tiresome, and boring project, though, so I’ll probably say I’ll do it and then never get around to it, unless this thing gets big enough so that a strange watermark would confuse people. So, yeah. Not gonna happen, is it?

After that, it’s wherever the wind takes me.

And now for something totally unrelated…
