My first ever video post - blog identity crisis resolved :)

Ok, SO. After my post from yesterday, I did a lot of thinking. It also helps to actually *ask* God for direction, does it not? I know that sometimes the answer isn't so clear, but I realized that I hadn't really asked Him at all. I tend to go on my merry way:

"LA LA LA! I'm happy go lucky over here! Everything is good, I don't need any help with anything!"


So I asked, real casual-like, and I woke up this morning thinking about it. As I was listening to Catholic Weekend on my commute in, I thought to myself:

"That video post thing I mentioned...I should just do that. My hair isn't too wild this morning, it would be a good day for it."

Because, you know, PRIORITIES.

And so here you have it, the first of hopefully a recurring series of video posts. In this installment, I talk about what I decided with regard to the future of this blog, and briefly touch upon how Our Lady Star of the Sea helped me out in my discernment process. I want these to be very short, 5 minutes or less, but I'm going fess up that I went over a bit on this introductory one. It's about 7 and a half minutes, I'll try to shorten them in the future. But I have to say it...apparently I like to talk! See, this is the thing about being an introvert. I DO enjoy talking to the people that I LIKE, and that's YOU! I'm definitely giving the podcast thing a lot of consideration at this point, because that may really scratch a creative itch for me. Stay tuned!

So, what did you think?! What would you like me to talk about in the future? Please do write to me. :)


  1. I think it's excellent. The production values are fine. The video is clear and the audio is intelligible. After that it's all about your authenticity which shines through.

  2. Aww, it's so great to SEE you! I look forward to reading your blog as a way of staying in touch -- so I'm glad you're not changing thing. :) I look forward to stopping in for a visit with the knitting crew this summer. Miss you!

  3. Great job! I was going to ask if you were thinking of going to the Catholic Women's Blogging network conference in Canton in a couple weeks, but probably not since you mentioned you'll be a the New Media conference in June. That sounds exciting!

  4. I don't have individual replies enabled due to a Blogger issue (EATING COMMENTS, EVIL!) so sorry about about that! But thank you to you ALL for the lovely and positive feedback. Bridge, miss you too, girl! Come in for knitting anytime. I'd like to bring Anne in one day this summer, maybe we could synch up? Theresa, so sorry I'll miss you! You're right, I won't be at that one. But we should try and plan a local get together, girlfriend! Via Rose and Janelle?

  5. I so enjoyed this! Looking forward to more. I think it would be lovely if you would make some podcasts where you pray some of the different chaplets- just a thought. At any rate, I will have my tea ready for the next one!

  6. Catherine, I am so intrigued by your suggestion! I'll keep you posted on this. ;-) And I love your comment about the tea; that's *exactly* what I was hoping for!


Thank you for commenting! I read and appreciate every single one, and I will respond to each one personally!
