I’ve been doing some thinking lately. I think it’s time for a change.
I love my blog and the direction it’s been going since I started it back up in March 2013. It’s grown tremendously and I am pleased with the fact that I am a voice for the loss community.
I want to be more.
I don’t only want to write about loss.
Sure, I want to help those that are grieving; show them that it’s possible to move forward and survive after tragedy. But, I also want to talk about cupcakes and how they make me very, very happy.
And I want to talk about my survivors and what I do to help them overcome the hurdles that come from being premature. And about all the things I’ve done to make living my life easier.
I still want to continue with the Loss Mom Interview Series (see the first post here to learn more about it) and bring light to the darkness of child loss. And I want to help people who don’t know what loss is like be able to better understand. That’s why I’m still writing my next book, Loving on a Loss Mom, which will be out in late fall.
But I’ve also gotten the opportunity to partner with some awesome brands and bring you content that’s a little more fun and current to what I’m going through now. Content like my favorite recipes that I turn to when I’m stressed, or a sensory project I worked on with my survivors, or a great tip or two of how we manage our day to day lives. And, let me tell you, there are some awesome things out there to help me with this – and I can still be real while doing it.
Don’t misunderstand me… I don’t want to be all sunshine and rainbows and fluff. But I also don’t want to become that person; that girl that only talks about loss.
And I still want to be me – authentically me. I still believe that the most important thing you can do is Blog Your Truth.
In fact, I’ll be starting a series about that exact thing on Oct. 1st (well, technically Sept. 30th). For 31 days, I’ll be blogging every. single. day. to help you learn how to blog your truth. Come back next week – you won’t want to miss out. Better yet – subscribe to my site and you won’t miss the updates!
I hope you’ll stick around and that you’ll appreciate the changes I’m making. And, please. Be patient. It’s a journey – and I’m likely to change my mind a few times on the way…
See you in a few days!
