While in the process of trying to take my blog private, I ran into many issues. I was discouraged that I had to take the blog private at all, and the fact that it was becoming such a nightmare to transfer it was only intensifying my anger at the situation.
I am disappointed that the actions of a single person can cause the need to restructure a huge portion of my life, my heart and my sanity, but now that I look at it, I see it as a good change. I was not happy at the thought that I was going to have to hide my thoughts away. I didn’t like the idea of inconveniencing others in a pestering manner to sign in to read. I like keeping a blog to sift through my thoughts, not to receive validation from others.
As I was searching the internet to find a remedy to missing blog invitations and ways to convert the blog to a different format all together, the idea hit me that I may just be able to change the URL. I was thrilled when I found that that was not only a possibility, but extremely simple to do.
It was a perfect solution to my problem. I was able to keep my blog content, keep it open to those who care to participate in my thoughts, find a new direction in my blogging path and move my blog out of the eyes of those who criticize and condemn. As I was weighing this new option, I wanted to come up with a perfect name. Who am I am where am I going? I had this same conundrum when I was switching from my life as I divorced my children’s husband many years ago. I moved from Franco Fab Five to Fairies Bears and Toads.
So, today, I am choosing simple and wonderous. Yes, I know that I misspelled the name. I did it on purpose. That is my life. We are now simple. We are full of wonder. We are a family that sees miracles every single day of our lives. Wonder- Us.
