Confession: I was thisclose to shutting down the blog for good. I actually googled, “how to keep all wordpress posts when you get rid of a blog.”
Why? Basically, 99% of the time this whole endeavor feels silly and self-involved. I really think there was a time in which I wrote things that were at least moderately entertaining or even a tad thoughtful. Anymore, it’s like, “uhhhh, here’s a recipe” [that could have been found easier via the google] or “uhhhh, here is an out-of-focus picture of Philomena” [that could have been seen on Instagram and/or Facebook a week previously] or “uhhh, how about I do a link-up” [in which about 100 bloggers all say pretty much the same thing.]
I would read other people’s blogs that are hilarious or interesting or deeply introspective or point to the Lord in a profound way. And I would think to myself, “dang, Sarah, you aren’t any of those things.”
However, with a little bit of prayer and a lot of thought I came to the realization that that kind of thinking is the worst type of self-involvement. You know? Like, I’m not going to try something, just because I’m not perfect. Instead, I shall go wallow in my mediocre party of one.
Wallowing is for wussies. Agreed?
I decided to go the opposite direction of taking down the blog, and instead I’ve given its appearance a tad of an update. I created a new banner, slightly changed the “about” page, and added a few menu choices. It’s not much, but it’s a start. So, if you’re reading this via Feedly or Bloglovin’, you might want to click on over to the actual website and let me know what you think.
Let’s be honest, this is still a pedestrian little blog. I’ll probably continue to be ramble-y and uninteresting at times. My pictures will never be professional.
Yet, I’m okay with all of that. Because this is real…and that’s all I can ask of myself.
