I should probably let you know that I’m planning some changes for The Muse in Wooden Shoes.
I started blogging in 2009. That’s a long time ago, now. While I’ve also written about family and farming and literature, this blog has been focused on perfume. And I have mixed feelings about the truth: that perfume doesn’t consume my brain space the way it used to. I still love it, but I’m simply enjoying what I have and only sampling the occasional new-to-me scent that appeals based on notes.
That’s probably obvious, given that I haven’t written much beyond a few reviews over the past couple of years, and I’ve probably yapped on about my children much more frequently of late than I have about, say, my longtime fragrant love, tuberose. I have been spending far more time on novel-writing and on trying to get my life organized to pursue some professional goals.
I’m reorienting my focus toward fiction right now.
As a result, I’m planning to migrate this site back to its WordPress.com location and drop the museinwoodenshoes.com domain. That should happen shortly before Christmas, and I will of course post a link to that old, soon to be new-again, blog. (Which is hosted for free. Which is kind of the point.)
Come December 15 or so, you’ll be finding the Muse hosted live, and not archived, at http://museinwoodenshoes.wordpress.com once more.
I do hope to post once a month or so, just to keep my hand in, even if everybody’s gotten tired of my not posting regularly and moved on to other fumehead blogs. Thanks for reading and talking about perfume with me over the past ten years.
Thanks for everything.
