How To: Revive an Abandoned Blog (In Other Words – We’re Back!)

By Moose & Michelle @LonelyTribalist

Step 1: Check your surroundings.

Is there any immediate danger (of schedule conflicts, inevitable procrastination, laziness ahead)? Look both ways before making a revival attempt. You're no good to your incapacitated blog if you're an absolute wreck yourself.

Step 2: Check for a pulse.

Hello? Is anyone still here? Dare we ask: anyone miss us?

Step 3: Fuck it. Go ahead and revamp anyways.

No comeback is complete without a groovy makeover. The old layout feels stale, so let's resuscitate with a new theme STAT. New banner, new logo. Look snazzy and new and productive on the outside - and still be same old nasty, lackadaisical you on the inside. But at least you look cool.

Step 4: Sarcasm and self-deprecation.

Check.

Step 5: Bring in the smelling salts - and explain.

Greetings, everyone!

Holy mackerel, it has been over 3 months since we lasted posted here on The Lonely Tribalist. We stopped abruptly and without any explanation and for that - to whomever regularly visited us - we are terribly sorry. In the short of it, life took over, sucked out our inspiration to write and socialize in favor of academic busywork and paying wretched bills. Our lack of sense of direction led us into a bramble from which we have been working through these past few months.

And here we are - not quite all the way through the foliage, but securely in sight of the open meadow just ahead. Much has happened, fellow lonely tribalists, and we are looking forward to all that will be happening here on the blog. We're going through a re-design and are working on a more organized posting structure. No more daily blog posts. Our new schedule:

Mondays / Wednesdays / Fridays

In trying to post daily in the past, we were losing a grip on why we wanted to start this blog in the first place. Sure, we wanted to tickle your brain and make you smile here and there, but our efforts began to feel rather empty. So no more going through the motions. We aim to motivate and inspire, commiserate, and fraternize with the likes of you awesome citizens of the world.

We missed you. And in the coming weeks, we will be rolling out new content, including explanations of what we've been up to during our impromptu spring hibernation (which involved failing classes, dropping out of an internship, and some polyamory drama).

So welcome back to The Lonely Tribalist, my motherfuckin' lovelies. We are open for community-building yet again!
