TINKERER OF WORDS HAS MOVED.

Standard

Let’s be honest, I’ve been dreading/avoiding writing this post. There’s so much I want to say, it’s become almost impossible to try to phrase perfectly. So without further ado, I’m just going to say it: I have officially moved to a self-hosted blog over at

http://www.tinkererofwords.com

what it looks like now  :$

yikes.

So from now on, this blog here will not be getting any new content, ya’ll have to (please) go to my new web address. Read Tinkerer of Words has Evolved, the post I wrote on the new blog address about this change. 

I know this is a happy moment yet I can’t help but feel nostalgic. The fact that I’ve had to change the theme and the logo (which ahem why don’t you check out at eh? 😇)..it’s all much fancier. But there’s no denying I’m going to miss this place, as it this right now, terribly. It’s been one of the best things, in my life. ever. And for all your support and comments, and the friends I’ve been made through this blogging endeavour.. I just can’t be any more grateful than I am. For all of it.

every.single.moment.

I’m going to miss the community feel of wordpress.com. SO MUCH. But moving to better things is all part of this creative journey even if the fears and the doubts try to keep you from moving. The only way I could avoid feeling daunted was to just do it (hence, why this is such a sudden change..). I had to stop overthinking all the potential affects (effects? 🙈) and remind myself that success is subjective and if doing what I do, makes me happy, then THAT is worth the most. Finding a readership or gaining followers only comes later and yes, hopefully, some day, even if a few people read what I write then that’s just the cherry on the top.

Phew. Anyway. Don’t want you thinking I’m sad because I’m not..I’m just an incredibly nostalgic Slytherin who’s been avoiding Oreos because Calories are the Dolores Umbridge of the muggle world. 🙃 #nodenying

Overall, the looks at Tinkerer of Words are different so hearing what ya’ll have to say about it would be utterly amazing. ❤ I’d be SO HONOURED if you come say hi on my new blog and perhaps share any experience or insight if you’ve been through a similar change?

Also, very important: if you’ve been following here..you might have to go to the new address and click on the follow button again just to be sure you get keep getting notified of the future posts. Alright? Alright. 👌

If you see no future posts on this address then I want you all to know that I’ve surely not quit, merely shiftedThus, in the words of Jack Roper himself:

 

and remember, it is never Goodbye..oh no, it’s

A Perplexed Walk

Standard

I found myself walking towards the green, age-old gate, an addition to the innumerable times I had done the same. You know how weird it is to go back to a place that you’ve officially said farewell to, expecting never to experience the many experiences the said place has given you?

Because let me ashore you; it is the most realistic walk down your memory lane that you can ever imagine.

You can’t escape the actuality of the present interwoven with the past, psychologically being played right behind your eyes. Each step bewitches your rationality to go kaput.

And just as you step into the boundary of such a place, the magic is broken. Everything comes crashing down to just that precise moment: when you see that which you had memorized and yet find yourself memorizing it all over again.

Almost as if you’ve said farewell to your farewell.

P.S. Relieved because holidays for like 2 weeks so posts will come more often, hopefully! 😀
