For a long time, my blog has been a space where I write about books, my writing process, my pursuit of publication, my own life, and my personal struggles. Because it’s always been so broad, I’ve often struggled to really “niche” it in my mind and define what exactly it is. So in an effort to give you, the reader, an idea of what to expect, my blog is a Writing and Lifestyle Blog.
Lifestyle is such a broad category that I get away with so much in it. So my random offshoots into what’s in my bullet journal this month are totally ok! Or when I go on a book reading binge and I just have to rave about my top five favorite reads of the month, will also perfectly acceptable! Or if I give you an anecdote about the time I almost lost it in the drop off line at my sons pre-k, will also be 100% par for the course.
Consider this blog a grab bag of my life. Because that is basically what you get when you title anything “lifestyle” in my opinion. Anything goes under that heading. Because let’s be fair, reading, writing, being a mom and a wife–they’re all aspects of my life and my lifestyle.
At the end of the day, I’ve always wanted this space to be honest and genuine. I’ve wanted it to be an area where I could be real about what I’m grappling with, be that something in my life, or something with my writing, or even a book I’m reading. So while this is a, sometimes, writing space, I think it’s mostly an honest space, but I hope most of all, it is a loving and inviting space.
Thanks for being here and joining me on this journey!
