I like spending time alone. One of my favourite things to do every once in a while is to put on a nice outfit, try out a new makeup look, and head down to a local bar for a cocktail. By myself.Read More
As you may know, I’ve just returned home from a two week writing intensive as part of my MFA program. There’s something so special about taking two weeks out of your busy, every day life, to spend as much time as possible talking about books and writing with other like-minded people. And it wasn’t just all talk, of course we actually got down to business and did some writing and reading of our own.Read More
Hello and welcome to the relaunch of The Cardinal Press!
As I mentioned in my last post, I took a couple weeks off to refocus my plan for this blog and develop more of a niche within the "lifestyle blog" umbrella.Read More
Hello lovely readers,
As you can see, things have been a little quiet around here lately. I'm currently in Halifax doing an intensive writing residency for my MFA program and although I had pre-written a bunch of posts for you, things haven't gone exactly according to plan.
A lot of what I'm learning while I'm here has got me thinking about the scope of this blog and I have decided to make some changes. It's time things got a little more focused and specific around here. Now that my readership has grown (thank you!), and I'm focusing on building my freelance career, I can't getaway with: "Whatever I feel like writing about" as a blog branding strategy anymore.
So, we'll be taking a little break while I finish up in Halifax and The Cardinal Press will be relaunching on August 17th. You can expect it to be similar to what you've been reading before. It will still be a lifestyle blog; I haven't suddenly got a lobotomy and decided to become a fitness guru or DIY genius. But the elements of lifestyle that I focus on here will be much more specific and to-the-point. I won't say too much just yet, but have no fear: this blog will soon be back and better than ever! (I hope!)
Thank you, as always, for reading. I'll be coming back at you from Toronto in ten short days!
