Please note I’m trying something new here with my blog. I have been looking to turn my blog into a sort of WordPress/Tumblr hybrid by posting “asides,” or links to articles that I feel are worthy of sharing on MissAdventures. Here, I’ll be able to provide more context or commentary on links I find worthy of a read. Plus I hope to bring into the fold of my blog more quick tidbits without spreading myself so thin on Twitter, Tumblr, and the like.

Please also note, asides in the future will not be this long! Thanks for letting me experiment…
