Heyyo! I’m Ioana (pronounced E-wanna), and I’m so glad you’ve decided to pop by! Whether you’re visiting because you were a reader of my eight-year-old blog or just happened to find the name Mistral Spirit around the interwebs, it’s great to have you here! I’ve been blogging since 2009, and I love sharing writing that others will read and benefit from. As my first post on this new blog, I’d like to welcome you and tell you a little bit about this blog and how it came about.
The Great Schism
Cre84me used to be my blogging space – where I shared every little thing I thought about, created, crafted, and read. But I started it when I was 9 years old. Since then, things have changed significantly. In its last few months of life, I’d noticed the blog was taking off in two major directions, and so on March 20, 2017, I decided to pack my bags, create two new blogs, and start from scratch.
The reason these two new blogs are also WordPress-hosted (read: the domain name on this one, for example, is “mistralspirit.wordpress.com”), is because I’m planning for a recession. Just kidding. I’m actually planning for university. Yep, that’s right. I’m heading off to university where the bill for a self-hosted fancy “Cre84me.info” URL just won’t cut it anymore. I’ll have to be frugal with my money, and cutting out expenses starts now.
The two blogs I’ve made are as follows. Though the exact distribution of specific types of content is still being disputed, I’ve got a very rough idea of what each blog would look like.
Mistral Spirit, for anything and everything that is largely blogging and lifestyle-oriented. I’ll be posting about my Bullet Journal adventures, what I’m doing, and fun lists that I think would interest my readers.
Silver Tome will be my personal creative outlet. My writing, essays, philosophical ramblings, literature investigations, and short stories will be posted there. May they find you at your most bored point in life.
If by any chance, you do want to go back and see the grandma blog of all these little blogs, Cre84me, you’ll have to visit it’s new archival location. The old domain will soon be discontinued.
A Tome is “a book, especially a large, heavy, scholarly one”. This blog is my creative outlet for the philosophical, observational, fictional and non-fictional. I love sharing what I’m up to with the world, and knowing that someone somewhere might be reading makes it that much more fun!
A Lil’ Bit About Me
As for me, I’m an extreme organizer and planner, a literature-enthusiast, a writer, an artist, a puppy parent, a Bullet Journaler, an ENFJ-T, and an adventurer. Most of all, I love sharing what I do on a blog knowing that someday someone someday will read it and benefit from or be inspired by it.
Things I value? Education, learning new things, organization AND spontaneity (a paradox, I know … I’m still trying to figure out how I exist, too), and most of all, authenticity.
Join me on my journey through life. It’s going to be one hell of an adventure!
