After a bit of a hiatus, I am coming back to blogging! I’m now at lifeischangeblog.com. This is a copy of my first post at my new location. Going forward, all new posts will be there (including the archives of old posts from this blog).
Hope to see you there!
Six years ago yesterday, I began writing the lifeischange.wordpress.com blog. In some ways, it’s hard to believe six whole years have passed since then, yet in other ways, when I look at how much my Life has in fact Changed since then, I can’t believe it isn’t more like 16 years.
Almost a year and a half ago, I stopped posting and eventually made the blog private because so much of my focus was shifting from the things I wrote about to other things . . . yet sometimes only other sides of the same old things. Anyway, I felt overwhelmed and couldn’t decide where to go with it all, so I put it on a shelf for a while.
But I miss blogging. I miss having an outlet for not only my silly (and sometimes entertaining to only myself) observations, but also the bigger stuff. The growing, changing, learning, becoming, trying-and-fixing and trying-again stuff. The learning-to-understand-myself stuff, and the “this is profoundly important to me” stuff.
So I decided to start again. Over time, I’ll catch up on writing about some of what’s new in my life now, and I’ll figure out the new focus of my blog. I still have an archive of my old posts, and little by little I’ll bring some of them back, in case anyone wants to read them (and in some cases, because I still laugh when I re-read or think about some of them and/or I don’t want to forget some of the things I wrote about at the time).
So . . . here’s to the New Revised Edition!
