A New Venture

I wrote in my last post that I was looking at possibly starting a new blog.  I’ve decided to take the plunge and launch the new site.  It’ll probably be a few days at least before it is up, but I’ll make an announcement here as soon as I get it going.  It has all started to come together for me and I feel very strongly that this is what I need to be doing right now.  I’m not sure where the time to run another site is going to come from, but I feel strongly that God wants me doing this, so I’m sure he’ll show me how to manage it all.

The new site is going to be taking my experiences and the things I have learned from the trials I’ve been through in my life, and teaching those lessons to others.  I hope to eventually add a business aspect into it, but for now it will probably be just informational.   I hope that I can really bless some other people and help them on their journey, just as so many people have helped me.

Honestly, I’m excited, but also quite frightened at the prospect of putting everything out there on the net.  I truly believe that God can heal people through what I have experienced, but I also know some people will disagree, and probably quite vehemently with what I say.  That’s okay, I don’t expect people to agree with everything.  I’m just a little nervous about whether I can do it or not.

It’s fascinating though, I can see where this idea has been brewing for a few years.  A couple of years back I started another blog that did not live long because the scope was much too narrow, but it was very  much a prepping ground of sorts for the new blog.

I plan to still keep this blog and will write on it as I have the urge, much like I do now.  I still have much growth to do myself, and I’m sure that much of that will end up here, just like it currently does, for better or worse.

I realized this morning that this blog is really one way that I am speaking my truth.  I started this blog as a way for me to really investigate and share who I am, especially on those topics that are often “taboo” in polite conversation with others… although I really don’t understand why they are so taboo….. post coming on that in a few 🙂  .  I am finding though, that getting my words down and out there is helping me speak my truth in more ways than expected.  Not only am I speaking my truth online, but I also feel empowered to begin to speak it elsewhere.  I’m not running around talking about the things I post on my blog, but when the topics arrive, I feel like I have already had a chance to explore them mentally, and thus it is much easier to discuss them and I have much more to say.  I’m one of those people who always thinks of exactly what I would like to say… right after the conversation has ended.  Now I have a myriad of topics that I have not just briefly thought about, but have ironed out and expressed my thoughts on. 

I think in the future I am going to start a new blog section that is responses to the blogs of others.  There aren’t a ton of blogs I read, but sometimes something in them touches me, makes me think about my own thoughts on a topic, etc. and I’d like to include those thoughts here also.  That should be lots of fun 🙂  I’ll link back to the original blogs so that you can see what triggered my madness LOL.

I am sooooo behind on our homeschool blog, I don’t know how I’m ever going to get it caught up. The problem is that I like to put lots of photos on it, and that takes forever. Of course the fact that I am bordering on overextended probably isn’t helping either. Who’d have thought life as a “stay at home mom” of 1 child could possibly be so darn busy? The worst thing is I just want to do more!
