Maybe it’s just hormones. But lately I’ve been thinking about, yet again, starting over on here. With twins on the way and all the life changes it will bring, it almost feels natural to move away from here. A new blog, new name, new goals.
I had someone ask about all the work I’ve put in here, but sometimes that stifles me. It feels like I’ve dug in so deep that at times I can’t get out of the place I’ve found myself.
This isn’t a quit blogging post – because I promised I wouldn’t do anymore of those. And I don’t want to. But in the next year or two, I can focus on a new blog and there won’t be much to worry about besides just writing. I’ll be so busy with my 3 little ones that it would be nice to write in a place where there are no expectations or deadlines.
Every time I go to a conference and someone mentions starting a new blog, starting fresh, I feel this longing to do just that. I feel strongly like God has laid this on my heart in the past year for a reason, but I don’t know if it means to make this blog new or go somewhere else.
But can I? Can I leave a blog I’ve poured my heart and time into for so long behind in a few months? I would miss this little space tremendously, as odd as that sounds.
Would it be the worst mistake I’ve made on here or the best chance I ever took? And the problem is, I won’t know till I make it. I think once the twins get here, I have to take a leap and keep going either way – something tells me that after that I’ll have to wait a good long while to try again. I don’t know if I can try and then come back with all the effort and emotional investment starting another would take.
Have any of you done this? Have you regretted it down the road or was it a good choice?
