the birth of upwardss:

I had 'blogged' on tumblr for approximately one year when I noticed it hadn't cracked up to what I thought it would be. Instead of sending my own ideas out into the blogging world, I was reblogging and liking pictures and words that weren't mine. I needed something better, I decided. And although I never deleted my tumblr, I wanted to put more effort and time into an actual blog. Talking it over with my best friend, Arushee (she had a blogger before me), I realized that, yes, in fact, I wanted a blog. 

So that's how this blog began-- only then, it wasn't called 'Upwardss,' it was named Errand Unfinished, then Chai Over Coffee, and eventually Upwardss. And I don't think I'll be changing this blog's name anytime soon.
