Starting Fresh

Hello again!

Recently I’d been feeling somewhat frustrated with blogging in general, but more specifically the tech side of it. I am in no way good with computers, I just know how to use one. So seeing that I had completely filled up my disc space on my previous blog was kind of the final straw for me to have a completely fresh start with blogging.

It is bittersweet to say goodbye to my old 8-year-old blog, but I think it’s for the best because while trying to fix my disc space problem, I ended up breaking the entire thing. Whoops. I wasn’t kidding when I said I’m not good with computers.

Instead of getting in touch with my previous host (who no longer offers free hosting), I decided to grit my teeth, buy a domain, and set up with a new host. And behold! We no longer have Exploring by Starlight, but Monstrumology instead!

Why have I swapped the stars for the lab, you ask? There are three reasons: I just don’t feel like a “nerdy” person anymore and I want to move away from that, there’s a blog out there that has a name very similar to my old blog name, and also I named it after a Smashing Pumpkins song, and although I still love their music, I can’t forgive Billy Corgan for being an ableist anti-vaxxer. So, bye-bye.

Something that is peculiar though is that I still have not read The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey. I know, terrible. But I do still like this name because it shows that I like the academic side of books, especially when it comes to spooky things and monsters. I’m not going to focus solely on horror or spec fic because I’m still doing things the way I used to, just with a new look and a new name.

But I’m not going to redo all of my GIFs just so they have my new site address on them. Not a chance.

I hope you’ll stick around because I have quite a lot planned!
