If I'm honest, I haven't been entirely happy with my blog, and especially the name of it, for a while. I tried various different things to get my enthusiasm back-using a different blogging platform, buying a domain name, changing the design-but nothing really worked. Honestly, I started this blog when I was in a very different place in my life, and certain aspects of it just didn't seem relevant any more. Then last week, I accidentally deleted my wordpress account, and in trying to fix that, also accidentally cancelled my webhosting. It seemed like a push to do something else, and stop trying to fix something I wasn't happy with to begin with.
So I've decided to take a risk and start fresh. To blog only about the things I really want to blog about. To have more fun with it. So I've chosen a suitably playful and whimsical name-The Forest Mermaid. You can now find me at
I hope you'll join me over there!
