I blog because I am a writer.
It's imprinted in my heart. It's who I am.
I blog because I cherish relationships.
It's a way to connect with people - from Santa Cruz, Sydney, Syracuse, and Sicily (and everywhere in between).
I blog because I want to record the simple beauty of the everyday.
Because the everyday is - actually - completely extraordinary.
I blog because I want to change the world.
And blogging is a powerful tool to help others - in Haiti, Halifax, Houston, and...right Here in Arizona.
The last few months I've been searching my heart, thinking about the whys and the hows and the whos of my blog. And I'm changing a few things.
- Deep Breath -
I'm giving up Wordless Wednesday (because my photos are never wordless!). I'm giving up Themed Weekends (because they're too product-centric and too inflexible). I'm giving up most product reviews.
You'll also find more ideas for creative gift-giving, for doing intentional acts of kindness, and for making the world a better place.
I'll still have Tuesday Tours (It's fun and I like to link to you). I'll still do themed series sometimes (but not every weekend). I'll still host giveaways (because it brings me great joy to give to others). But it will be different. It will be good-different.
More to come... (including an announcement about a brand new something!)
