Back to OneStarryNight
I mistakenly tried to leave my beloved One Starry Night. Alas, I have come back! I read all 2,000+ of my posts, and wow, what a journey it has been over the last two decades! I struggled with writing, sharing, and taking photos, which started full force in 2015. I thought a fresh new start at a different URL would somehow fix that. It didn’t. After discussing it at length with one of my best friends, it just made sense to come back to my online home!
I did my best to go through and clean up all of the theme code and styles. Hopefully, nothing looks jacked up on mobile. I didn’t change the theme design too much, went back to an old favorite for a script font (classic OSN), and spruced up the header. I pared down the categories and updated the about page a bit (the photo is vastly outdated, I miss my long purple hair!). I also put up a resources page.
I am still trying to find my way back on the photography front. I recently got myself a Flickr Pro account, and I realized I’d had Flickr since 2005! I also recently purchased a new tripod as my previous one broke years and years ago. Finally, I need to calibrate my lenses because they seem to be back focusing, so annoying! I also feel like I’m starting over as a newbie because it’s been so many years since I consistently shot photos.
Do you have a semi-active blog? Do you still read personal blogs?
Well, I am happy to be “home.”
This post is over a year old which means the content may be outdated or no longer accurate.
Welcome home! This feels right. ❤️
Thank you so much!
I must have started following your blog near the beginning but due to one thing or another I ended up reading fewer and fewer blogs (I haven’t blogged myself since 2018, but recently dusted my website off and relaunched).
In getting back into blogging I wondered how you were doing and finally remembered your domain. It’s good to see you’re still here.
OMG Simon!! It’s been absolutely forever! I am so happy to know you’re getting back into blogging as well!
