I know what you are thinking… a blog post from Melanie… it’s about time! As you know, I excitedly launched my blog website, put in an “About Me” section, posted the thrilling epilogue of “The Rosemary Chronicles” and then… (crickets, crickets)
It’s been bugging me too. I didn’t want to wait so long. Time after time, I’d write a blog post but something didn’t feel right. Finally, after weeks of wondering about this, I realized that while I was excited to write and connect with you through this website I had run into a big problem: I was not quite sure of the purpose of this blog… would it only be a place where I would post my writings? Or a personal blog with stories of my life? What about a devotional blog? I struggled with this for awhile and kept pushing my writing away because what I felt in my heart didn’t fit into any one of those categories. So here’s what I’ve decided… my “purpose” for this blog:
It’s going to be all those things!
This blog is a place for:
- my latest chapters and story snippets
- personal stories and updates about my life
- and most of all, it will be a place of heart connections with plenty of encouragement and honesty.
I want to meet you here and share life together, bringing hope to our hearts and a deeper connection that my heart craves (I have a feeling yours does too!) And just about any way I can do that I will. Whew, re-reading that last sentence makes it all clear–that’s just about as big of a purpose as I can imagine. So, I am now poised—fingers on the keyboard– ready to write. Let’s connect this week, dear friend, heart to heart you and I.
