Uptown Funk You Up

In case anyone was wondering where I got the blog tagline, it’s from my current jam. Smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy!

If you don’t like it, don’t worry–I’m going to be changing up the taglines occasionally.

A bit of housekeeping

I’m working on a final look for this blog, so I’ll be experimenting a bit here and there, and the appearance will change. Excuse our dust!

What up, Internets?


“My dear madam, I am not so ignorant of young ladies’ ways as you wish to believe me; it is this delightful habit of journaling which largely contributes to form the easy style of writing for which ladies are so generally celebrated. Everybody allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female. Nature may have done something, but I am sure it must be essentially assisted by the practice of keeping a journal.” – Henry Tilney

So. Starting a new blog. Not that I don’t love Jane Austen anymore (that’s not even remotely the case and anyone who tells you that or implies it is making it up) but I am a little burned out on Austen-only blogging. Thus, a new personal blog (no, AustenBlog was not a personal blog, really) where I can write about anything I want. Expect posts about stuff I’m reading, stuff I’m writing, and stuff I’m making. Jane Austen will figure heavily, because I love Jane Austen. Also expect the occasional Grumpy Cat meme, because Grumpy Cat is my spirit animal. Snark will abound, because I’m writing it and it’s how I roll.

P.S. This theme is temporary until I get something more personal.
