things are changing

I wanted to check in with my blog readers and let you know a few things.
For starters, I am fine and my family and loved ones are healthy and well. I hope you can say the same. I would love to hear from you in the comment section. Let me know how you are adjusting to this new reality.

Life has changed for all of us and we haven't yet grasped what that means or how it will impact our lives for the long term. I do know that for me, the frame for my writing has really shifted, slowly for a long time, and now all at once.

I still believe that blogging is a great form of communication despite what I hear people saying that "no one reads blogs anymore". I think no one reads boring blogs anymore, and the word "blog" feels a little dated to me, but blogs are alive and well.

For those of you who have been reading this blog for years, you already know I don't write in it the way I used to. It's not because I've run out of things to say or topics I want to write about-- not at all. It's that I feel like I've created a collection, this archive of blog posts, and I don't need to keep adding to it. I think the blogger-branded platform helped me start something that I wanted to do, and now I'm done with using it.  This collection, for better or worse, is complete.

Now, stop crying. I'm still going to write and I'm still going to write for you. Just not here. I will be writing on my own website. The new blog will be very similar to what I send out in my newsletter. Wait, you haven't subscribed to my newsletter yet?? Now is the time my dears. I will also be writing more about what I'm working on in the studio, and how things are changing there.

Thank you for reading what I write, for showing up here, and for being interested in what I have to say. I appreciate it so much. Stick with me, there is more good stuff to come.
