Saying Something

I've been absent. Aside from acclimating to a new life with a new roomie, I've had no desire to write about wedding details, recipes and/or going the complete cop-out route and posting a handful of pictures. Those things are fun, but they're not why this blog exists. I determined a couple months ago, following the resurrection of this blog, that it was my heartfelt desire to incorporate writing into my career. But not only to write. I want to actually say something.

This semester, I'm taking two online writing courses: Writing about Food, and Introduction to Professional Writing. Both have given me the confidence in knowing that writing, blogging and researching are things I love to do. I'm writing all the time and I couldn't be happier. So although, I do get the occasional thrill out of posting a well-received recipe or receiving copious amounts of compliments on an array of subjects, I want to stay true to my vision. I'm not doing myself any favors by writing superficial and empty posts. As a writer, I'm constantly striving to speak eloquently and artfully, but I cannot lose sight of the content of my work.

Therefore, I've accepted that it's okay if I don't post every day with every meal, every photo op and life recap. When I do choose to blog, I want to make sure I'm saying something. My hope is that as you read this, whether you're a friend, family member or someone who stumbled upon this site via the blog community, you will hold me accountable. I've been given a gift and I refuse to waste it on mundane and petty conversation.

From this point forward, my blog will be filled with passion, conviction and integrity. Because that's who I am as a writer, blogger and a woman of God.
