A new direction

Hello friends, I’m sure you’ve noticed a bit of a change around here. I’ve only changed my blog’s name and entire look and feel. For the longest time, I no longer resonated with the name O so inspired. To be honest, whenever I introduced my blog to anyone, I felt a tinge of embarrassment. Which is not a great feeling to have for something that you’re supposed to be proud of. It took a few years to choose a new name, but I finally settled on Totally Confident and Completely Insecure (inspired by the ever fabulous Erin Foster). I wanted to get more done before relaunching the site, but it’s nearly 2 months since I bought the domain and started working on the site. So done is better than perfect. So expect a few tweaks with regards to pictures and fixing links on the much older posts.

With the blog’s relaunch, I began looking at other blogs and the types of content I enjoyed reading, the type of blog posts that I would go back to and read over and over again. I also looked at what you, the readers enjoyed reading. Just to take you on a trip down memory lane, and to update new readers, here are some of the most read posts on the blog.
