A Fresh Start

My name is Greg Polkosnik.  I’ve blogged under a few other names, including “Auntie Fashion” and “Cosmically Chic.”  I’m interested in a zillion things, and although those blogs demonstrated my fondness for a few subjects, I began to feel as if they were constraining me.  That’s why I decided to write this blog instead.

I’m still going to blather on about fashion and astrology, but I’m not going to be writing in the voice of a character who is — for the most part — just another one of my many personalities.  I intend to carry many of the elements of “Auntie Fashion” over to this blog, but a fresh start is going to free me from writing about fashion exclusively.  Frankly, fashion blogging went out of style a long time ago.

I’m sure that some people wonder why other people blog.  As the title of my blog suggests, it’s a self-indulgent pastime.  I do it because it keeps me writing every day. There have been times in my life where I’ve been able to make a decent living writing for magazines.  Being able to keep my skills sharp is important to me.  Writers block is a real thing and I don’t want to find myself struggling to write in the event that I start getting jobs again.  Thanks to blogging, I’m a much better writer today than when I worked for Condé Nast and Hearst.  And I’m so fascinating that writing about myself every day just seems like the right thing to do.  Right?
