Call it a rebrand, a retirement, or an old-fashioned needed for a change. I changed the name of the blog from Stacks and Ranges to Scenes from a Life. I started my blog as a sandbox for writing with hopes to turn it into a library blog. I will write about libraries from time to time as it’s part of my life. However, it’s not my whole life, and I wanted to write a variety of things and showcase my writing.
Lately, I have looked at my focus, and it seemed a little off. I cut the cord to get some of it back. The new title also comes with a new domain. Unfortunately, I can’t change my Instagram or Twitter name, but I still have a soft spot for my username. It still describes me like the books I suggest or the information out on the internet. Confusing? Yes. Luckily, I am not a well-known internet personality. I can’t even attach the word ‘yet’ on it. I’ll pass and just enjoy what I am doing.
I came up with the name one day on the bus. It just came to me one day as I looked out the window, the breeze coming in to freshen the ride. It sounds even more pretentious than Stacks and Ranges. People will think I am putting on more airs. I thought. Didn’t we have a conversation about not trying to please other people? Replied the inner voice.
Welcome to Scenes From A Life as it writes, in the words of C. Day-Lewis, not to be understood but to understand.
