Hello, my dear old friends!
Please accept my sincerest apologies if you received notification that I published several new articles today. I logged in for nostalgia’s sake and received notification that I had published 116 new articles. (Please tell me you didn’t receive 100 separate emails!) Oops! So embarrassing. I still have no idea what I did.
I came here to apologize…profusely.
But, since the reason I was putzing around in the first place was for a smile and some inspiration, I’m going to use this as an opportunity to instead say, “Thank you.”
Thank you for your friendship, support, advice, and encouragement over my time here. Thank you for opening your minds and sharing your thoughts. It’s truly one of the highlights of my life.
I abandoned the blog because I felt like I was acting too much like an angsty, heart-on-their-sleeve teenager who couldn’t keep her feelings in check. I felt like I was unraveling, all while inviting the possibility of criticism. In short, I got lost in my head and was then too stubborn to admit it.
In the time since, I’ve been exceptionally well–delving deeper into, and expanding upon the interests of my younger self. As much as I have missed blogging publicly, the return to the old pen and notebook was just what I needed.
Anyways, while I’m here, I’ll share what I’m working on now, for anyone interested. I’ve been transitioning away from social media for five years, but want to recreate the connection with clutter.
Here’s my new blog. I haven’t told anyone about it yet. I don’t exactly know the shape of it yet. I would venture to say it’s still the same me, though slightly wiser and more grounded. It’s quite simple, but it’s my new home and you’re welcome to stop by any time.
Again, sorry for any unsolicited emails. I know it’s been awhile. Hopefully the invitation to come follow the next stage of my blogging life will make up for any inconvenience.
Big hugs from across the inter-webs
