Hello, friend! If you’ve been here before, you are probably noticing that things look a little different. That’s because I’ve been holed away in my room in mad scientist mode for the past couple weeks working on a redesign for No Need for Mirrors. Isn’t it pretty?
I want to take a second to say THANK YOU to everyone who has read, commented, texted, messaged, called, emailed, subscribed, posted, retweeted, high-fived, and smoke signaled about this project. When I switched to this new & improved site, I lost all of the old analytics, but as of last week the blog had close to 6,000 hits. In a little over 2 months! Ok, so maybe that’s not enough to skyrocket me to internet fame, but it’s pretty incredible and heartwarming to lil old me. It’s such a joy to connect with so many different kinds of people through my stories!
Going forward, I want to implement some new things! Soon I’ll be adding book & music reviews into the mix. So much of what I read and listen to influences me spiritually and intellectually, and I’m excited to share some new (hopefully?) things with you!
I also want to know what YOU want to see here. Yes, I started this blog to write about my experiences from a very specific point of view: life as a single Christian 30+ woman. BUT a huge and unexpected blessing has come from sharing my stories, which is that men and women of all ages, from different backgrounds and walks of life, have been responding. And it’s awesome! That’s one of the reasons why I changed the tagline on the site to what it is currently: “Leaning into grace. Loving through the mess. Living right now.” Those are things we can all do, right? It’s a clearer and more inclusive vision for this space, and I can’t wait to see where this journey leads us!
SO! If you have a topic suggestion or a question or any other ideas of things you’d like to see here, I’m all ears. (Eyes? Eyes since we’re reading these things? I’m all ears and/or eyes.) Post a comment here or on Facebook or Instagram or wherever you prefer. Follow your heart.
I’m excited to write more soon and, with your help, continue this authentic, funny, weird, confusing conversation about real. life. stuff.
Love love love and Merry Christmas!
