O Hey.


It has officially been one year since I launched this blog. Last March when I began blogging I dreamt it to be an organized space for everyday fashion, crafts, and  inspirational stories from my community. I quickly discovered that I was mentally unprepared and not passionate about those things enough to blog about them. I began blogging for followers rather than for myself and it cut into my inspiration and time from my personal goals.  That was never what I intended.

So I am coming back to this space refreshed, with a different vision.  Telling Oceans will be a space where I post periodically about life,  quotes I find inspirational, things I have learned about health (mental/physical/spiritual), and reflect on what God is doing around me.  It will follow me on my personal journey; you are more than welcome to follow along, but I won't be posting any pictures of my outfits, step by step crafts, or stories of other people.  Here's to posting whatever the heck I feel like!


Cheers and Blessings*

  1. Happy first year! After 3+ years my blog, Clear the Way, will be taking a different direction too. I totally relate to this!

  2. It was such a pleasant surprise to see this! Excited that you will be blogging again. There are definitely things I've blogged about that I didn't feel passionate enough about to maintain, and like you, my blog has evolved into more of a personal one. Looking forward to reading more :)

  4. I realized the same thing after I started a blog - if you start pushing yourself to do it for anyone else, it's suddenly incredibly difficult! Happy to hear you'll be posting some tid bits now and again!

  9. I can relate to you - I have too many thoughts of quitting blogging. It's hard to keep up with the blog and you want to see comments and page views on posts, you know? I guess now I'm trying to learn how to find that balance like how you did! Happy to see you blogging again though :)
