Happy October, my blog friends!
A little update for you. For the last month (and well, for the last several months really), I have been thinking and praying about the direction of my blog. My heart hasn't been in to blogging, like it was when I first started blogging several years ago. When it all began, I found such a wonderful sense of community in it, and made many blog friends through it. Much has changed since then in general, people change and come and go, and my life became so busy outside of blogging. Blogging itself has become so commercialized, and I'll admit that with many of the blogs I used to follow, I began to feel less and less of a connection as it all became more about promotion or selling products. And although there's nothing wrong with that, when it's ALL about that, a sense of community is lost. Also, as I mentioned in a recent post about when medicine is hard, I truly needed to distance myself from social media for awhile during that particularly difficult season of life.
So that brings me to now. As I said, I've been doing a lot of thinking and praying about the direction for my blog. I want to create and be a part of community once again. I have been envisioning a bit more of a purposeful direction, and I'm very excited! Please bear with me as I put my plan into action over the next few weeks.
I would like to ask my faithful blog followers a favor. Leave a comment below, and tell me your first name, your blog URL if you have one, and just a tiny bit about you. I'd like to get to know you! Let's start with creating community once again, focusing on the good and beautiful things of life.
