So, here's the thing. Having this little blog, in a small corner of the internet world, is, well, my space. (No, not the old social network. I wonder if I can still get into that?) I've said it before in another post that it doesn't matter to me whether I have tons of visitors or if the only page view counts are my own. This is just a space for me to create, write, design, and share. It's a place for me to escape, I guess. I don't want to pretend that I am THE perfect writer or that my blog is the best in the land. Because, well, both of those things are completely untrue.
But, that doesn't mean that I don't want this place to be uninviting or unwelcoming. I LOVE it when people stop by and when you guys read and leave comments. Sometimes I have a hard time writing a post and then I'm not sure whether I should hit "publish" or not. But, it's then in those moments that someone will e-mail me or text me and say that they really enjoyed a post or that it was something they really needed to hear. Of course my heart explodes with happiness and it just makes writing here worth it so much more.
All that to say, I love my little space. And I love your little space. I love that they are our own. That they are ours. That we choose to use our spaces for good things. For awareness. For community. I never want to stray away from that. (This is getting sappy, I'm stopping.)
So, I was going to write a real post today on something more interesting, but instead I wanted to change up my little corner of the internet. So, uhm, that's what I did today. Same name, new look. You will notice a new layout and header. Pretty much all the same pages, I just got rid of the "welcome" page. And if you have my blog bookmarked, it should take you directly to this blog page, which is now the MAIN page. I think I've changed this so much that my links everywhere else in social media is messed up. There may be some issues with BlogLovin' too, but I'll work on that. All the same stuff on the side as well. I'm also going to redo my "about me" page to make it more fun.
When I started blogging again, I knew that I wanted a welcoming and inviting place. A space for community and conversation. And, knowing me, I was never happy with my last layout. So, I really like this one a whole lot better! It's much more sleek, simple, and elegant. And I love the colors. Can you tell that I'm enjoying it? ha I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
So, since I didn't give you something real to read today, will you please check out one of these posts from the archives? They are my "favorites" I guess you would say. Hope you enjoy one, two, or all of them and they encourage you (or make you smile). Happy Wednesday!
