Today, WordPress reminded me that it was my third anniversary of flying with WordPress. To be quite honest, if they hadn’t reminded me, I would have completely forgotten and this day would have passed unremarked upon.
However, here we are! And we’re going to be chatting about the things I’ve learnt over these three years and the direction I’d like to head toward with this blog.
First of all, looking back on the past… Continue reading “Reflecting on Three Years of Blogging”
Hi there guys! It’s been a while, hasn’t it?
First of all, I’m going to sincerely apologise for my extended and unannounced break from blogging. Sorry about that. But I’m also not going to feel too bad. I obviously needed a break, and with the Covid-19 pandemic and a host of other things, my mind wasn’t really on blogging.
But I’m back for now. How long or how consistent this will be I’m not sure, but I’m just going to take things one step at a time and we’ll see how it turns out.
To ease back into the swing of things, I’m going to give you guys an update on how life and isolation is going for me. Strap yourselves in, ladies and gentlemen. Let’s go.

Last weekend, I had the privilege of being a leader at our annual youth camp. We had a lot of fun, got a little sunburnt (at least, I did. And gained a few more freckles) and we focussed on a theme that I think is incredibly important. Our theme for this year was “Rest and the Sabbath Day”. I was asked to give a talk on the topic, so below is my thoughts, gathered in written format.
(Just as a note, I am writing this for Christians in particular and I will be mentioning the Bible/God frequently. However, if you are not Christian or not religious, I still think many of these things apply, I’m just approaching it from my own point of view)
For our generation, rest is more elusive, and yet more important, than ever. We live in an overstimulated world. We live in a world where we’re constantly connected–via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, email and text message. These apps give us incredible insight into the lives of casual acquaintances and we’re left with no privacy and a constant comparison between their “perfect” lives and ours.

Well, I’m back.
I’ve just been off on a relaxing hiatus and I’m returning with a stack full of tags and new post ideas! Before we get started, here are a few things that I should let you guys know:
- I’m changing my posts to Mondays after today. It’s just a day that works better than my current scheduled day of Saturday.
- I’m hoping to get around to redesigning this blog. But don’t hold out for it happening too soon.
Now, today’s post is part of a new project launched by the amazing Jenna Terese.
It’s called Project Inspire and it’s a great tag full of positivity and thanks and I’m so excited to be doing it today. Here’s the rules:
1. Thank and link back to who’s blog you first saw the tag on; link back to the creator of the tag.
2. Answer the questions given (when you mention a person in your answers, link to their blog/website if they have one)
3. Include 5 of the biggest things you’ve learned about writing, and how they’ve change you.
3. Don’t tag anybody. 😉 We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to take part in this. So at the end of your post, leave the open invitation to any of your readers that wants to do the tag.
