So here is the big reveal that I've been alluding to for months! You may remember the various stories about the neverending job hunt, and my frustration with trying to negotiate my art life, my farming love, and animals.
This all sort of came together when I was interviewed by MaryJanesFarm magazine (yup, I'm in a national magazine--and you can pick it up at your local magazine carrier or Barnes and Noble, just look for the Feb/March issue).
Now, at the same time, I went to register my Wild At Heart business as something legitimate and taxable, and was surprised to find out (from a lawyer friend) that I couldn't 100% avoid prosecution for using it since there had already been a film by that name. And though I'm sure that David Lynch has better things to do than to bother with a small-fry like me, it didn't sit well with me.
Weirdly, I'd already been thinking this could happen, and had been thinking of other names that might better fit what I was doing with my life. By the time the magazine interview came out, I had already decided that I would find a way to meld together my life in art, animals and agriculture, and create my own job and take control of my life. Now, while this sounds deep it's been a behind-the-scenes journey that came down to a simple decision.
...Not only that, but I was trying to consolidate the many MANY areas online where I seem to be writing online....SO...
Since this blog bears the name Wild At Heart and I also have Wild At Heart Farm, I am letting you know that they will be moving to TWO new homes. One is a literal move of this blog to its new home. THE SECOND blog is the new crazy farm, art, agriculture musings along with a VERY SPECIAL project I am working on.
View them here:
The latter will be the continuation of this blog. While I am sad to discontinue with Wild At Heart (especially since the magazine article makes a pointed mention of it--ouch! AND the Etsy store will need to be changed--d'oh!), I think that the idea of free-spirited, journeying, imaginative vagabond-ness works MUCH better!
PLEASE join me on these new little adventures!
Besides following my silly little ramblings, I will be holding several giveaways on BOTH blogs January 13th, and....this blog will become inactive on January 10th!
So hop on over there! Hope to see you soon!
