Sorry, I’ve moved! Click here to join me at my new blog- Call Me Trouble.
I’ve put a great deal of thought into my first post at “Call Me Trouble.” I didn’t anticipate how hard it would be to write my last post at Beer & Clothing. Sure, I’ve gone through plenty of blogs, Differant1, Crazy/Beautiful, Manic Pixie Dream Girl, but this one was different. Beer and Clothing is where I began to chronicle my life as I know it now.
I struggled with this change, do I change the name? Do I become a dot com? When should I pull the trigger? Finally, something said “go.” Then came what to name my new domain, not wanting to rush it, my goal of making the switch in time for the New Year got pushed out. I thought, maybe I won’t change it. This is fine for now.
It’s not fine. Every time I comment on a post and have to type out beerandclothingincleveland.wordpress.com, I cringed. When my Aunt asked “what’s your site again?” and I said the address out loud, I knew she’d never remember it by the time she got home. Then I feel obligated to write it out on a piece of paper. Double cringe. It’s too long.
Beer and Clothing in Cleveland was my playful take on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. A few people have made the connection, but not most. I view my blog title like I do Halloween costumes, if you have to explain it, it’s not good. Though I do like my writing style, it’s not reminiscent of Thompson’s dynamic Gonzo Journalism.
Lastly, while I do love beer, and clothing, and Cleveland, I am not an expert at any of them. I like reviewing my encounters with all three but my ramblings are about so much more. If someone searches for “Cleveland fashion” or “Beer clothing in Cleveland” I’m sure my page only disappoints. (My apologies if that’s how you came to read this!)
Beer and Clothing, it’s been great. Friends, family, & fabulous people who stumbled upon this blog, I hope you’ll join me for the ride at Call Me Trouble.
