You may have noticed it’s been a little quiet around here lately.
A lot happened last year. We bought our first house, traveled to a few new places, remodeled our kitchen, adopted our first puppy– I had a lot to write about, I just didn’t.
Any time I would sit down to write a blog post, thoughts like What do you have to say that someone else isn’t already saying, and saying better? would pop into my head. I felt discouraged by how crowded the blog space is, and how small my voice is. What was the point?
The result of that mindset was me becoming a consumer instead of a creator. I ended up mindlessly scrolling through media until my creativity was completely numbed.
A few months ago I decided it was time for a fresh start, and I started planning a complete overhaul of my blog. After months of dreaming, brainstorming, and planning, The Bowers Burrow is finally ready!
I’m still going to leave this site up as a reminder of where my blogging journey started. And also because my piece on Charlemagne has helped thousands of college students with their history homework (you’re welcome!). This site started as an assignment for my Digital Journalism class, and grew into a place where I could pour my heart out and share pieces of my life with you all.
Over at TheBowersBurrow.com I’m going to be writing about life, travel, books I’m reading, and new recipes I’m trying. Not too much different than what I’ve written about here on Be A Beautiful Soul, but definitely more intentional.
Thank you for all of your support here on my first blog! I hope you’ll join me over at The Bowers Burrow.
