Hello, internet-o-blogsphere! I am Susanify, formerly known as Rad. I used to co-write a style blog over at Cohabitating Closet with my beautiful friend Anne. But then I realized that I only wear dark, neutral colors, and I wasn’t that interested in experimenting much. I liked reading other’s blogs, though, because I felt connected to them. It’s been over year since I blogged, but I miss it and I miss the relationships created/maintained through blogging.
There have been a lot of changes since then. My book got published. I am now an irregular correspondent on an awesome, indie radio show. I’ve met a number of awesome bloggers in real life (like Ray and Franca). My blokey and I really started focusing on our savings goals. I got involved in Occupy Wall Street. Oh, and I am expecting a baby in mid June.
So these things will affect me as I attempt to navigate blogging again. I hope to use this blog as a style-crafty-career-food-friendship-activism blog. My body is changing (very slowly), my dedication to thrifty cheapness abounds, and I want to be more DIY. I don’t want to turn this into another “mommy” blog, but I do hope this blog will prevent me from exclusively wearing secondhand yoga pants for the next 6 months (and many years after).
I’m in this weird stage, shape wise, in which I look normal to any stranger, but friends tell me that it’s “obvious” that I am preggers. I haven’t gone official about my “condition” at work yet (I want to wait until the beginning of spring semester) but my pooch-minimizing outfits are limited. I want to limit my purchases of maternity clothes for a while, as I still have a lot growth ahead of me. Stay tune for my thrifty attempts at bump-concealing soon.
