Discerning the future of the blog...

Sooo, apparently for Lent I have given up posting on my blog. 😂 For quite some time now, I've been discerning how to move forward with my blog and/or whether to continue. Our landscape has changed so much technologically over the years, and people really aren't perusing the blogosphere the way they used to. I wonder to myself how relevant blogs are in our current world? In addition to that, between my job, my family, and my dancing projects, I haven't really had a lot of time to write. So that's what has been going on behind the scenes, if you will.

At the same time, I am still just as in love with my Catholic faith as ever, and I still feel that God is calling me to share it creatively in some fashion. I'm just figuring out exactly how. I've come to a place in my life wherein I know that I don't need to rush or push this, God will show me the path when He is ready for me to see it. So, I'm sure that something interesting is coming down the pike (have I told you about the new fascination I have with the Byzantine rite? No, I haven't, because I haven't had time to write a blog post, LOL! But there's some great fodder there!) and when I figure out what exactly God wants me to do, I will share it. In the meantime, I hope that everyone is having a beautiful and fruitful Lent!
This week, the mid-point of Lent, I'm challening myself to pray a Morning Offering each day. Do you have a favorite Morning Offering? Feel free to leave a link in the comments!

  1. Oh man I feel your pain. I still have my blog up but man it has been dormant for awhile. I never know what to write about and feel like no one really reads it. I often feel like people are reading instagram and facebook posts/stories and not really reading blogs on a regular basis. But I can't bring myself to take my blog down either....so there it sits....

    1. Yes, same! I know there are a few people who still read (like you!)but it does feel like things have changed a bit with how and where people consume content online. I'm still pondering on this quite a bit! I won't take my blog down, it'll definitely stay up at least as an archive, but I do wonder exactly how I should proceed with sharing new ideas.

  2. Tiffany I hope in some way you can continue. I don't comment but follow you. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and sometimes not easy to write and you have inspired me with my faith and life over the years. Please find a simplified way to continue.
