Some thoughts on identity

I announced this on Twitter earlier this week, but I have officially rebranded as “LizCultivates” on Twitter and Instagram as an extension of the “Liz Makes” branding that I’m now using here on this site.

I’ve been waffling on changing it for a while. The “LizWrites” has been part of my identity for so long that it’s difficult to imagine what my online persona would look like without it. But now I’m doing it!

The tweet thread (linked above) explains my feelings on “LizCultivates.” In essence, as I create new things and grow as an individual and person who “makes stuff,” I am cultivating myself. I’m finding my identity and growing into it. Which, if I think about it, is really all I’ve been trying to do here with this blog anyway.

I don’t say anything groundbreaking here. It’s really just a space for me to be. I have projects to tout and cat photos to share. But it’s in service to how I want to live my life and how I want to be seen as a human: that loopy poet type who loves cats and knits shawls and gets poetry-inspired tattoos.

I’m getting there. And this change to @lizcultivates is more than just a social media branding thing. It’s a change in how I am looking at myself and what I want out of the things I create.

And really? All I’ve ever wanted is to find myself.
