Have a seat, we need to talk. There comes a time in every blog’s life when it’s author needs to make a decision. Keep eeking out posts with less enthusiasm and waning motivation or move on to other things. Maybe you can tell by the title of this post what I’ve decided.
Wicked Cheap in Boston has been my baby for almost five years now and it was, like, the cutest. So squishy and happy. I’d bring it out into public and people would coo and say “you must be so proud” (sort of). And I was! It went through a few iterations, and there were times when I felt like it was firing on all cylinders. But most of the time, especially recently, I just wasn’t as pumped about it as I should be (seeing as how it is a hobby and all). It felt a bit bogged down, stifling, boring. I thought about retooling in the same vein but I kept putting it off and to me that’s a sign that I just really didn’t want to do it. I also thought about quitting blogging all together. Surely I share enough on social media that I don’t need yet another outlet. But the thought of that made me sad. Writing and sharing is very rewarding to me and I couldn’t walk away.
I feel like that needed more fanfare. Hold on. Here we go:
A brand spankin’ new blog. Hop on over to get a taste.
I’ll be keeping WCiB up for now, until I decide what I want to do with archives. I’d also like to leave you with some recommendations of the people who are doing what I wanted to do with this blog but better: Boston On Budget, The Boston Calendar, Boston Day Book. All really fabulous sources for all your Beantown needs.
It’s been real, and I hope to see you all over yonder.
