This site is a curation of many things: houses, art, houses, writing, houses, cool old stuff, houses, interesting places, houses, books, houses, and well, more houses. This site serves no other purpose than to amuse the author and perhaps give her a little side income so she can eventually retire and hide in her old house full-time. To that end, she may run some ads and put a donation button on here somewhere so she can make a little cash.
The author (House Crazy Sarah) is an experienced writer and blogger who published two books of serious literary fiction in the 2000’s, and created/authored/curated the popular blog House Crazy from 2012 – 2016. She sold that blog for more money than she ever made on any of her published books but later regretted selling it because the company that bought it shamelessly turned it into an advertising farm, changed its name, bastardized the original content and gutted its soul, much to the chagrin of House Crazy’s many fans and long-time readers.
This new blog, entitled House Crazy Sarah, is the author’s way of making it up to her fans. The big difference about this reincarnation, is that the blog will be about more than just houses (but with a good dose of house love) and it will never be sold because it has the author’s name right in the title.
This website (blog, or “web-log”) is meant solely for entertainment purposes as is evident in the silliness of its content. While this personal blog may dispense advice and opinions, they are solely those of the author and are in no way meant to be taken seriously as the author is full of sassy bluster. House Crazy Sarah is the sole owner, proprietor, writer, and curator of this website. She prefers to be called a “webmistress” rather than a “webmaster” because she prefers female pronouns and identifies as a female humanoid. Also, webmistress sounds kind of witch-y and hip in a femi-nerdi way.
