It's a New Day-I'm Starting a New Blog

The time has come. I am transitioning out of the Weight Loss Rollercoaster to begin a new chapter of reflection in my life. I felt my blog was too weight loss (ha! ha!, the title says it all!) centered. I wanted to begin working on other parts of me. I don't know what they are right now but I have been inspired by some of your recent posts.

So if you want to come along on a new ride with me, come see me at my new blog "The Rest of Our Days". Follow me if you like. The first post will explain why I'm creating a new blog.


Blogging has helped me so much. And all of you have contributed to my success.

But over the past few months as I watch more and more of you drop out of blogging, I became a bit jaded. I love to blog and it has been my lifeline. I couldn't imagine giving it up. So I needed to decide if I continue with the Rollercoaster or move into discovering where I am going in life.

And don't worry, I will still be following all of you and commenting as much as I can.

I will still post stories on the Superstar Blog. I would love if someone else would volunteer to help me with the Superstar Blog. It doesn't involve a lot of work maybe an hour or so every other month. Just someone who likes to format and double check the written word and organize some photos as well as contacting new "Stars" to submit their stories. So if you are so inclined to help me out, let me know at bandsuperstars@gmail.com.

Last but not least. It's my birthday. Today I'm 58 years old. OMG, where did the time go!

Happy birthday Sandy!!! I'm 58 - come on in, the water's lovely!

I so agree with you about the blog. I too am disappointed when bloggers I really liked just drop off the radar screen. If you really like to write then your blog evolves, you can't help it. I preferred to morph mine into an amalgam of lapband updates, posts about what I was up to, and stories, with photographs thrown in as much as possible. I don't know if having a mishmash blog works - probably not, but I don't fancy having separate ones. I keep my Eavesdroppings blog separate because I want it to be bite-size posts on what amuses me, though it has few followers and hits, so maybe it wasn't a good idea to keep it separate. But I enjoy doing it.

Very much look forward to reading whatever blogs you write - I shall always be a follower.

I'm a teeny bit late to the (birthday) party, but happy b-day, Sandy! I wish I could have been our first on the new blog, but I'm rushing over to follow now!

Hope you had a great birthday! Good luck with your new blog. I've thought about changing mine to be more about my life than just my weight loss, but we'll see.
