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!
