I got a wild hair to redesign the site this week, as I was sick of looking at that same old Moon I'd been looking at for two years. Most people read DDtM via feed, but I'm pleased to roll out the all-new, all-singing, all-dancing blog, now with 80% less blue. I went for something simpler and cleaner, and I think I like it.
Aside from appearances, the major change I've made is that I decided to merge DDtM with Stumbling Towards Ahimsa and discontinue the latter. I finally realized I have enough trouble keeping up with one blog, let alone two, and why should different aspects of my life be segregated? If people don't want to read about food and veganism, well, they can skip those posts. Those who don't will be treated to tasty recipes and the occasional half-drunk ramble about cooking.
I'm in the process of going through old entries and updating their tags, so please bear with me if things shift and settle for a bit. I'll be adjusting colors and tweaking the layout here and there too. Also you'll notice new navigation links along the top of the page; I updated the information on the About the Author page, created new pages about my writing, and made a "Stuff I Like" page of links, book recommendations, and random lists of things I felt like listing. You'll find that my two Amazon Affiliate stores have also been merged, which I think is more informative and convenient than just a list of favorite books.
The upshot of all this is that posting frequency should pick up in the near future, and the subject matter of this blog is certain to broaden. It's never going to be a slice-of-life journal (I have one of those elsewhere), but I don't want to confine my writing just to spirituality, or just to food, or just to anything. All aspects of my life inform one another, and all those aspects are steadily changing as the months of 2009 wander past, and hopefully more than ever before Dancing Down the Moon will reflect who I am, where I'm going, and what that means.
