In my efforts to focus on health and healing in every aspect of my life this year, I’ve decided to retire from this blog. When I started it 14 years ago, we didn’t have all of the content and social media platforms we have today. My original reason for starting it was to become a better writer. I reasoned that if I made a commitment to write and publish something every day, that practice would make me a skilled writer.
At this point in my career and life, I’m a published award-winning author, a freelance journalist, and a content creator in many different mediums. This blog did its job, and I’m so grateful for the people I’ve met through it. Thank you for being here all these years. It’s been an absolute honor.
Just because I’m retiring this blog doesn’t mean the conversation ends. It’s just moving to platforms where I now spend more time. I would love to connect with you in any and all of these ways:
Twitter – @christanyc
Instagram – @christarosenyc
Medium – christaavampato
This website will continue to stay active, the archive of posts will be available to anyone, and I’ll keep updating the various sections such as my writing portfolio as it goes through a site redesign process.
Be good to each other, kind to the planet, and loving toward yourself. The world needs all of us at our best.
With much love and gratitude,
The director for PBS American Portrait reached out to me after seeing the banner in Central Park that has my quote from the love letter I wrote to that beautiful space. She asked if I’d let them publish the full letter on their site in their “When I step outside my door” section and this morning it’s live.
Seeing Stacey Abrams on Colbert last gave me so much hope for our country. What she’s done with Fair Fight is remarkable and I look forward to her holding public office! Georgia’s on my mind and in my heart today. Warnock and Ossoff for Senate—the health of our democracy depends on this special Senate election today.

To begin 2021, I gave myself rest, reading, writing, relaxation, organization, inspiration, art, nutritious food, music, kindness, long walks, & puppy snuggles. A year filled with these things sounds good to me.❤
Each year I choose a word as a mantra. In 2021, I choose health in all its forms in all things—physical, mental, emotional, societal, relationships, home, and career. And I love that heal is embedded in it. Happy New Year! 💚
