Due to just not hitting a groove with it as well some personal issues with harassment from a family member, I’ve had to wipe out my last blog and start over with a new one.
I’m not going to lie… I don’t remember how many blogs I’ve had throughout the years. I’m kind of a whiz at starting them and not finishing them. I either get bored or realize that the domain name or purpose of the blog just doesn’t quite suit me. I struggle with changing that about myself… I have the tendency to start a lot of things but not finish them. Probably because I try to be someone I’m not.
Do any of you do the same thing?
I have pulled in a few posts from my last blog, but otherwise, I’ve decided to start fresh.
How did I come up with the name wanderwhirl?
Well, I have a mad case of wanderlust. I’m itching to travel, to see places I’ve never seen before, to experience new cultures and have memorable adventures. Obviously, I would love to see more of the world. But even here in the United States, there are so many little, quirky towns and different ways of life that I would love to witness.
In reality though, this new blog is about something else…
I often feel like I’m wandering… sometimes aimlessly wandering… sometimes wandering in search of something.
And then other times, my life feels like a whirlwind of chaos. Utter chaos… sometimes good… sometimes bad… but always enlightening… always needed.
And I love alliteration.
So, when wanderwhirl popped into my head, I went with it.
It sounds a bit whimsical, no?
When I say it, it makes me think of wearing fluffy skirts and twirling and getting dizzy. It makes me think of carousels and those chair swing rides. And bright colors. And breezy, carefree fun. It makes me smile. It makes me feel content. It makes me feel in the moment while also looking forward to a wondrous future.
Hopefully, that’s a good sign.
Or there’s something in the air making me a bit wonky in the head.
At any rate, I think it’s way better than my last domain name. My last one could be interpreted as a bit hostile.
I don’t need to add hostility into my life.
I do, however, need whimsy. And wandering. And whirling.
Join me, why don’t you?
Welcome to my happy place…
