Welcome. I am so excited you’re here, peeps.
So what’s going on around this joint? Well, the old bloggity has been in need of a makeover for a long, long time. I’ve spent the past few weeks getting her all pretty for you so you can enjoy her even more. Some changes are obvious, some are subtle (but cool), and some are a little bit scary (for me) but should hopefully yield some interesting and fun things. So let’s get to it!
Scary but fun!
Yes! There are more Letters to Louie on the way! The LTLs are about to get a little more memoiry (memoiresque? memoirish? I’m making words like a mad woman, apparently) and that’s new territory for me. However, risking public humiliation is nothing new, so I’ll be right in my comfort zone in some respects. (Sidenote: Whenever I have to type “public” I always almost accidentally type “pubic” instead. Risking pubic humiliation? That’s something to ponder.)
A suggestion: The best way to make sure you don’t miss any of my Louie madness is to sign up to get email updates. It’s totally free and the 400th subscriber will win a hot sexual encounter with yours truly. Wait, make that the 4th subscriber. And the 8th and the 12th and so on. Every 4 subscribers. I like to keep my audience happy. It’s all about you, peeps.
New! New! New!
Hey! Who wants me to meddle in their lives? You do, right?
That’s great news because I’m totally ready to eff your shit up. How? A while ago one of my brilliant readers suggested that I take reader questions and offer my advice. Of course there’s no way anything good can come of this. But hey, what the heck? I’m totally game. So shoot me your questions. Ask me anything, from whether you should leave your spouse to what to have for your bedtime snack. Depending on my mood, you could end up with some stellar advice that will forever alter the direction of your life in a positive way or just a whole lot of profane nonsense. Fun for all!
Email me your questions at email@example.com with “Ask Trish” in the subject line. All questions will remain anonymous. I’ll post a reply every Thursday. (That is, if people actually send me questions. On second thought, if no one writes in I’ll just make stuff up. Can’t get fired from my own blog, now can I?)
More! More! More!
Lordy, readers, is it possible that my life might actually be coming together? It’s possible. All of the crazy bullshite that has been sucking my energy and my time for the last few years seems to be subsiding. More on all this in later days, but the upshot is that you can expect more posts from me.
I feel like a rubber band that’s been stretched waaay the hell back in a slingshot. I’m ready to spring forward and unleash all of my ridiculous ponderings on you lovely bitches. You’ve been warned.
Who’s it all about? Me!
There’s a new About page.
I’ve been half-assing that section for years. I finally wrote a proper one.
No, wait. I meant ‘you.’ It’s about you!
There are a few new elements under the hood that I hope will make the bloggity a little more user friendly.
Got something to say? Go for it!
You no longer need to log in and enter a password to comment. That was a pain in the ass, wasn’t it? I couldn’t seem to dump that feature from my old blog themes.
Since commenting here will be easier, can I ask a favor? For those of you who leave comments for me on Facebook, I urge you to try commenting here instead. Why? Because then it leaves a nice little archive of our conversation right with the post so we can look back on our moving and/or inappropriate exchanges without having to scroll through months or years of Facebook hoo-hah. Plus, on a selfish note, you’ll be helping me out by demonstrating that I have an engaged audience, which is important when I’m applying for new web writing gigs. (See how I just made it about me again? Listen, go write your own blog if you want it to be about you.)
However, please know that I’m thrilled to hear from you in any way you’d like to contact me (online, that is) so if Facebook is your preferred method, go for it. I’m just happy you’re reading.
Home delivery? No problem.
As I mentioned above, the best way to make sure you don’t miss anything is to subscribe so new posts are delivered to your email address. Do so here.
Want to read on the go? Gotcha covered.
You can now check out According to Trish on your phones or tablets and enjoy a mobile-friendly layout. (If you prefer the regular layout, just scroll down to the bottom of the page to exit mobile mode.)
For you webby types: I got this theme, including the mobile layout, at Elegant Themes for an absolute steal. Worth checking out.
Let’s get this party started
So here we go, peeps. I can’t wait to delve into this new era of According to Trish with all of you. Knowing you’re out there reading means the world to me.
Catch you on the next post!
