My blog turned 6 today. Considering all the domain changes, theme makeovers, topic shifts, and periods of inconsistency, I’m just grateful that for whatever reason, I decided to maintain this space. Over the past 6 years, several worthwhile friendships and fun brand partnerships materialized from this space, and for that I’m grateful.
I suppose I got so bogged down with trying to decide what kind of writer I wanted to be, that I neglected to simply write. I updated my domain one final time to my full name, to give myself the freedom to write about whatever I like. I most enjoy writing about life’s intangibles like loss and love, which doesn’t always fit in an SEO-friendly box.
Called to Consistency
Moving forward, I will show up for myself and for you in some large or small way, every day, right here. Whether I have the mental bandwidth for one sentence or several, I feel called to offer up something to this space each and every day for a full year. I’ve added a countdown tracker to my site’s footer to keep me focused and accountable.
As the product of an absent father and an ambitious mother, I have come to appreciate a person’s time above all else. I hadn’t checked my site analytics in some time, and was shocked to see the thousands of visitors who stumbled across my blog last year and stayed for awhile. To my readers, commenters, and followers – thank you for the time you’ve given so freely. Thank you for giving me a place to rest my thoughts, and the space to shrink and stretch and shift as I so choose.
Onward and upward, friends. I’m excited about whatever will come from this. I’m excited to greet whoever I’ll be waiting on the other side.
