The first post on crzegrl.net was 12 November 2003. That makes this ancient in blog years. At that time, blogging was a strange hobby, done mostly by nerds and those looking for a voice.
It was also done anonymously. As in very secretive. Some bloggers were outed to the public with disastrous professional consequences. Fortunately, I came out, so to speak and changed my blog to one of openness. Over the years, the changes in acceptance of writing in a very public forum changed from being employer controlled (as in very substantial social media rules against) to employer encouraged.
My writing, and crzegrl.net survived, but with debilitating consequences. In other words, I stopped writing. I attempted to revive my passion on a number of occasions but it never seemed right.
Today, I am changing the focus of this blog to one which it was originally intended. This is my space to write. Write about what I want to say.
