Recently I did some cleaning up on my blog. I removed and reassigned my labels so that there were fewer of them. This, of course, meant that I had to skim through all of my almost 2000 posts and made me realize that I've been at this blogging thing for a very long time.
I'm also about to turn 50. I'm not really bothered by it because I've always felt that age is more about how you feel about it than what the number says you are. I still feel a lot younger than that, so turning the numbers up one digit higher doesn't really bother me. Now my youngest son, it bothers him. He says it kind of "creeps him out" to think about me and his dad being 50.
So, after much pondering about this space here, I've decided that I'm old enough now to be more of a mentor, so I'm looking to have the posts in this ole blog be more in line with my organizing book "A Plan for Joy in the Home"; which is why I reassigned all of my labels. I'm hoping to help people more than just keep them up to date on our doings. Of course, that will all still find its way in here, but maybe with more of a purpose.
I hope you'll join me on this new venture and share this space with your friends and homeschooling groups. It's so much more fun when we can interact and share, so I'm hoping you'll be game to do that.
Hopefully, God willing, this will also mean more consistent posting. I won't be surprised, however, if there is still some sporadic moments! Overall, I'm looking forward to see what comes of this space in the future.
