I have been thinking a lot today about a few things...
Blogging. It's so weird to think that we just put it out there... or in some cases, we don't. Like this Decorno business is supposed to be about decor, but it's really about the fantasy of perfect living, isn't it? Girls (and guys) like you and me who want to keep some kind of web log about good home ideas and how we can perfect our nests.
But there are so many really, really good blogs about decor, I have no business trying to be one of them. I have no interest in creating some kind of encyclopedic catalog of magazine clippings of perfect decor. Don't get me wrong. I *love* the blogs that do. I need these blogs, in fact, when I want inspiration or information about my next decorating project.
But that's just not me. Martha Stewart will never sponsor Decorno because I like to say "fuck" and I write about the unsexiness of zydeco.
Which leads me to the meat of the post, the other things I have been thinking randomly tonight.
Decorno is a bit limiting. I am never going to write about curtains. I, in fact, hate curtains. I am really interested in life and how we all think we can perfect it despite evidence to the contrary.
So, I am going to step out a bit and start writing about the rest of it. I have decided I don't care about traffic. Who wants traffic, anyway? I want readers.
So, on Decorno, you're still going to get the classics like "Things That Are Wrong" but you're also going to get more Jil Sander posts. And I am going to write more, and more randomly. And if you keep reading, great. And if not, I know exactly 3 of you who will follow me along as I do something different and weirder, and harder to read, but hopefully, more interesting and more unique. I've never been good at scrapbooks. I have been more of a writer the whole time, so that's what I am going to do.
