I've been going through some blogging growing pains lately, and the time for me to move on from this space has arrived. I'm leaving blogger and The Young Retiree behind me as I move on over to "Cheers, Elizabeth" over on Wordpress!
Starting a blog is an interesting and complex process. I brainstormed all day recently on what I wanted my new space and social media identity to be. I wanted something I could grow with as I continue sharing our journey. I wanted something authentic and fitting for who I am. I wanted something that obviously was not already in use. Nothing sat well with me, and believe me: there were tons of ideas!
I changed my instagram handle first. I never thought something so simple would require so much thought! I could go simple @itsmeelizabeth but not only was it taken, lack of punctuation, even in social media handles really irks me! I searched several variations of the like and couldn't find anything available I was wanting. For now, I've settled with @your.pal.elizabeth. Well, because we're a community and we're building friendships, right? So, I'm your pal!
I'm making my blogging move to Cheers, Elizabeth slowly, but surely! I can't wait to find a reasonably priced designer to work with and really make that space my home on the internet! Even though it's ugly and plain for now, that's where I'll be writing!
I'd love to have you continue to read the stories I'm sharing and join the conversation over there! There will for sure be growing pains as I figure wordpress out, but I'm looking forward to mastering it the way I have blogging here! You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter!
Cheers, friends! Thanks for making The Young Retiree more than I ever dreamed it would be!
