After a long break from blogging or even journal writing, I came to two decisions: one, I want to do it again, and two, I need to create a new blog. My original one was top secret and while I strangely ended up with one reader (who also turned out to be awesome), I still felt like I need more.
So tonight, I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to come up with a name. My last blog name was cute, but didn’t quite express itself. I searched everything from song lyrics to Latin proverbs. After an hour or so of head scratching, I had a light bulb go off over my head and I decided on “My Thoughts Exactly”, which would pretty much sum up the way I plan on using this blog. My thoughts. Exactly.
Once I found something I liked, then I had to see if it was available. For my old blog, I used Blogger, but I wanted to see what other sites were recommended. Thanks to a Mashable article about blogging platforms, I had a list of five. After much testing, I finally found a combination that worked.
And thus began Hilary’s return trip to Blogsville…
