Should I Stay or Should I Go? — You Vote!

This past weekend I observed my half birthday.  Yes, I realize as an adult it is not typical (or arguably, appropriate) to recognize a half birthday, but what can I say?  I like finding silly excuses to celebrate even in minor ways, and honestly, it’s just a hard habit to let go of. :::takes off party hat:::

But this half birthday actually does matter, at least to the life and future of this blog.  This means that in six short months I will no longer be technically pushing thirty.  What ever is a girl who blogs about life leading up to turning 30 to do?

Of course, this is not a surprise.  I always knew this day would come, and I’ve thought a lot about what I would do when it did.  In fact, it’s the most common question I get when talking about this blog. Will I rebrand? Will I start a new blog?  Will I stop writing all together?

I didn’t know where this blog would take me when I first started.  I didn’t know if it would be the right format for me, or if I would feel accepted in the blogger community.  I’d be lying if I said I didn’t struggle at times with my self-imposed deadlines and the occasional writer’s block (do you have any idea how hard it is to have 2 new ideas a week?)  but in the end I did find that this format works for me, and I did feel accepted into the blogger community.  And as a writer who has found a home in the blogosphere, I won’t stop writing anytime soon.

Still it begs the question, once I am thirty — no longer pushing — should I abandon this space I have called home for the past 3 years? Is it misleading in some way to be 30 and a half and still talking about life lessons learned at my age?  Have I reached a point where my perspective or life situation has changed enough to warrant a URL and brand move?

I have my thoughts on this, and with six months to go, I’d like to open it up to the readers.  What do you guys think? Vote below!

  1. Have literally just discovered your blog by chance…and I like. So yes – continue, and prove that life doesn’t stop after you’re thirty (Please God, I’m rapidly approaching it myself.

    • thanks for your vote of confidence!

      • I totally agree.. I found your blog by accident and really like it. I just turned 30 earlier this year and REALLY hope that the fun of life won’t stop anytime soon! Keep it up!

      • thanks for the support! 🙂

  2. I really enjoy reading your blogs. You’re a terrific writer with a great deal of talent. I can’t imagine that you’d ever give up writing. I think writing comes naturally to you and it’s in your blood (or in your genes). However, to keep the integrity of what you had originally intended to do with this blog, it’s my opinion that you should rename this, or start, another blog.

    • thank you for your vote! I will take it into consideration 🙂
