Why I Blog

General Musings

I didn’t start out to become a popular blogger, and while at this point I’d love it if blogging paid some bills (hello, student loans!) or led to other opportunities, I still don’t do it for that reason. I began blogging mostly to keep track of my journey into single motherhood and to post sermons and other pastoral pieces. If people happened to somehow stumble upon my blog and find something that spoke to them, great.

My blogging has evolved over time–from one blog to two and back to one again–and gone through a few name changes, but overall I believe I maintain a similar intent. I want to keep track of my thoughts and experiences through all parts of my life, while hopefully connecting with people who are interested in what I have to say, whether it’s because the church has hurt them and they want a different perspective, they are adopting from foster care, they want to live a more green life…whatever. While it would be wonderful to have a wider readership, and that is partly why I keep trying to do NaBloPoMo and post more regularly, I’m not going to spend a great deal of time figuring out what words to use to come up in Google more, or promoting my blog on other sites.

Maybe someday down the line I may try to publicize my blog a bit more, but for now I’ll continue to use it more like a journal and a place to practice my writing so that I’ll have something I’m proud to share more widely!

The Author

I'm a pastor. I believe in radical love and ridiculous grace. I love to sing and sew, and have a shop on Etsy. I'm trying to make my ecological footprint smaller. I have chickens who provide endless entertainment. Oh, and I'm a formerly single mom by choice, son E (born 6/00, placed 11/23/11, adoption finalized 11/21/14) and now making a life with The Dude and his two kids, Girl-E (12/02) and C (9/04). Baby Bumpy due to arrive around 5/25/15! This blog chronicles my thoughts on faith, family, and the wild adventure we call Life!
