I was so excited last week, having made some preliminary tweaks to this blog, and having really gotten a good plan for the direction I want to go. I had planned to spend a big chunk of last weekend while Chris was at work finishing the revamp and writing some new posts…
Unfortunately, our internet access went bye-bye sometime Friday afternoon, and won’t be back till probably next week. I’m writing this from a remote computer, and while my sturdy little laptop has wi-fi and is fine for posting, it lacks the tools to do the upgrades I wanted to do.
So anyway, in case you were wondering why I dropped off the face of the earth after my last post–I’m not depressed! LOL. I’m just “unplugged” this week. It’s actually been mostly a good thing. I think I needed a little unplugged time this week.
You may have noticed that the categories have changed. They’re actually still mostly the same categories, just renamed and a few of them combined where there was duplication. The Daily Brew is still all the odds and ends and miscellaneous details of our lives. The Inspired Life is about creativity. The Obedient Life is about living out your faith and following the Way of Christ. The Ordered Life is about managing your blessings of time and stuff well. It’s more or less Organization and Productivity, but “organization” can easily become “perfectionism” and “productivity” can be about getting more done, faster, without a lot of thought given to what you’re getting done and why.
The Soulful Life is about caring for and tending your soul, whether that means therapy or a retreat, or spiritual direction, or a long walk in the park, or a fudge brownie. The Writing Life is about needlecrafts. Now, seriously, if you can’t figure out what The Writing Life category is for, I can’t help you.
So anyway, starting next week, look forward to more frequent (and possibly more focused and entertaining) posts.
