You may have noticed that I changed the name of this blog from Nifty Eef to EefjeS. I’ve been thinking about how I present myself online. I’ve been EefjeS on twitter for years, and it is a really acurate way of describing myself. So why should I not use it in more places? (My first name being Eefje and my last starting with an S, and at the same time it can be read as multiple Eefjes.) An other aspect of my online presence is that I have split my tumblr into two blogs. I still have my regular tumblr filled with fandom, feminism, and whatever tickles my fancy, but the second one is a curated collection of inspiring things. I want it to become an archive of other peoples work that I enjoy and want to learn from. See it here. I took the idea from Austin Kleon, who has his tumblr integrated in his website. I’m currently reading his book Show Your Work which is one of the reasons I’m thinking of all these things the way I am.
Also: this week I finally secured my own domain and hosting. What! I didn’t have that already? No I did not.
I’ve wanted my own place online, really my own, for years now but I just never got around to it. I want to learn how to do this myself, run wordpress (the .org version) and build my own theme. But I don’t have any knowledge on how to do that so I have a lot to learn before I get to where I want to be in that area. I was planning to start this at some point when I had time for it, but life never really slows down so I just have to start.
