You guys, I’m so excited to be back into my own little home on the range! A couple years ago, I started focusing on a sports/fitness blog with my brother, but – as with pretty much anything we do – we lost enthusiasm and quit. Yep. And then I decided to just Be Quiet for a while, which was super difficult, let me tell you. But I did and I was.
Then a few months ago, when bright, freezing cold January rolled around, I was like, oh my word, I’m going crazy – which was probably more related to the “I Survived Winter ’14 Fiasco” than not being able to write on a bloggy mcblog ….but anyway, I started pursuing getting one up and running again. Here’s the thing, Friends Who Have Been Around For a While, my old blog title? I had it for years and years. But a little while ago, a blog with a name very similar to mine popped up. And that blog was so inappropriate and when you searched for my name, THAT one came up. So disgusting! We have daughters, I am a woman and I hate that my name was even somewhat related to something so disgusting (don’t get me started on the degradation of women related to porn…gross. Just gross.)
So I named my blog after, well, ME, because that seemed easiest and most obvious. I’m sorry if this comes across as pretentious. I squirmed about it, I asked friends, I asked Husband, I asked my soul and I went back and forth on keeping the old name or changing it and then Husband bought me the domain name with just my name and told me just to change it and be done with it and I said, Thanks, Husband. I will. Also, it helps if I ever start trying to get a job, then my name is MY name. Good deal.
I promise I won’t get a big head about having a site named after me. (Although, True Confessions: This morning, it was super windy outside and I was standing at church, waiting for my son to check-in to his class and I started checking my hair in a picture hanging on the wall… then I took a step back and realized it was a picture of Jesus. I was checking my hair out – not just in church, but in a framed picture of Jesus!! How awful am I?)(Let’s leave the topic of pictures of Jesus for another day, shall we?)
So, welcome to Kelliwick.com! I am so thrilled to be back with bloggin’ and hope you join me as I Do Stuff and Then Write About It. All the old posts are here, too! I’ll be working on updating things to make it cleaner and more organized… thanks for your patience!
