I don’t usually like to rant about anything but I am legitimately upset right now and want to know if others have had this same experience. After taking much time to put together the look and feel of my beautiful new blog Walks in Beauty, this morning I logged into WordPress.com only to find that in the Manage Blogs section the name of my new blog appears in the drop down menu as MartsArtsNI. Now, I follow a blog called Marts Arts which is rather curious since I just recently started following them and their posts are very unlike mine. Good but more focused on poetry. Everything else on my blog still bears the name I chose and it shows as Walks in Beauty in the dashboard but on the Manage Blogs menu and the drop down underneath my gravatar on the upper right hand corner of the page it says MartsArtsNI which is definitely NOT my blog’s name. Contacting support seems useless as well and I cannot figure out why it suddenly changed over night.

Last night everything was running perfectly and my account looked the same as it always has. This is the first time I have had any problems with WordPress and I am really annoyed! I cannot figure out what caused this or how to fix it and I must admit I am not the most patient person when it comes to technology. Have any of you had a problem like this before? I would appreciate any help or suggestions you can give me as support seems to be as useful as waiting for a drop of rain in an endless drought. Thanks for listening to my rant!

What will the new year bring?


For me, it is a new blog focused on showcasing my art, photography and poetry. It also brings the opportunity to visit good friends and make new memories abroad but more on that later. My new blog, entitled Walks in Beauty, is an attempt to make a small personal portfolio of my work available online as well as a way to connect with my readers and friends in a new and different way. Previously I often kept my work private and showed it to people only occasionally but I have decided it is time to share! So, what will this new year bring you?

Happy New Year! Feliz Año!

Happy 2010 everyone! I know I haven’t posted anything in a while but there has so much been going on lately that I’ve not been able to gather my thoughts properly. Life changes lightning fast when we least expect it and the last two months of 2009 were not as I expected needless to say. My fam and I left Princeton in November and I ended up in Upstate NY while my folks went West to Washington State. I miss them but at the same time am so happy to be closer to NYC and a few steps closer to fullfilling my dream of living in Manhattan! It is what I have wanted all my life and I am eagerly awaiting the chance to do so.

As a new twist on a new year, I have decided to use this blog to showcase each day in my life through photographs. My goal is to write everyday starting today and add photos that I take each day. For me it is an exercise in writing and photography and something that I hope will help keep me inspired with the day to day. So, to start off this new blogging season I went out for a brisk winter walk today and took some fun pictures! Only I would think it great to take a walk in the snow when we’re experiencing what the weatherman called an “arctic blast” and nearly freeze my fingers off trying to take some pictures.

All in all, I found that it is quite possible to find hidden pockets of beauty in the most unlikely places. So, without further ado, here are a few shots from my walk this afternoon:

I hope you enjoy those shots! I look forward to hearing what you all think of my love of snow! Have a wonderful January! More to come tomorrow!
