Have you noticed some changes around here?
I have been considering rebranding my blog for a while now, and toyed with a lot of different ideas. And bought a lot of different domain names! But, in the end, I could abandon my Plaidfuzz roots so I renamed them.
I have been blogging as The World According To Plaidfuzz since 2008. It started out as a way to promote my Etsy store. Back in those days if you hit publish, people read your blog, so it was a great marketing tool. My, how things have changed.
People often ask me what Plaidfuzz means. Plaidfuzz has been my online identity since I first put a free AOL disc into my computer tower. We are going back to the stone ages here, people. It was the 90’s. My uniform consisted of knock-off Doc Martens, and a plaid, flannel shirt tied around my waist; a perfect accent to my Nirvana In Utero t shirt. It was plaid. It was fuzzy. It stuck.
What does The House of Plaidfuzz mean? Over the years this space has evolved, and right now my life revolves around my home and family. I think homemaking is dramatically different for my generation – a lot of us grew up with working mothers. We ate macaroni and cheese out of a box, probably on a paper plate. Many of the housekeeping skills our grandparents passed onto our parents, were never passed onto us.
But times have changed. Modern domesticity is about going back to the basics – cooking our families healthy meals from scratch, teaching ourselves to sew, and juggling our busy lives. Moving forward I am going to focus on posting more about these kinds of things that make up my daily life!
So, please be patient with me in the next week or so as I finish tweaking and installing things. I hope you follow me along on this journey in a new direction. Thank you for reading!
