So, I changed the name of my blog. I got tired of the old one, so to add a little excitement to my life, I spent the better part of a day thinking of the perfect name.
Good bye “Whims & Wanderings.” You’ve been replaced.
Why “Life Within the Words”?
Words are a big part of my life, especially written words. I am surrounded by them. Mostly I read them; sometimes I write them. I’m paid to evaluate them. I love words.
I also have a life. I’m a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter, a sister.
The new name represents what this blog is about. I write words about people who write words. I write words of my own. I write about the words I write. But filling the spaces between the words in my world is my world—my life. I use this blog to write about my life.
I began this blog years ago. I think it was originally called “Life in Bits & Pieces.” I liked that one, but it sort of made me think of a life that had been shattered. Mine’s fine. Thank God, my life is not broken. It was about my life and all the parts of it.
Then it was called something else. Must have been boring because I don’t remember what. I don’t think I wrote much during that time. ((yawn))
I changed it to “Whims & Wanderings” because I figured I’d use it to write about whatever I wanted, unbound by a theme. It was a decent name, but like I said above, I got tired of it.
“Life Within the Words” better suits what this blog has evolved into. It’s a stopping ground for all my blog posts. When I write a post on my author blog, it will end up here. My editing blog posts will be copied here as well. Posts about my real life—where my family, my faith, and my musings reside—will continue to be posted here.
Life … within the words.
My husband suggested the name “The Junk Drawer” since everything ends up here. I like that one, but … junk … maybe not.
Anyway, if you’ve read this far, thanks! I hope you visit again.
