REALLY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT WAY DOWN THERE. DON’T SKIP THIS ONE.
Lexi does not like change. At all.
She didn’t like it when I got an iPhone 4S that was white instead of like my black iPhone 4.
Three months later she still doesn’t like that we rearranged our living room.
Just this month, she started hoarding food in her room because she said she was going to live in her room the rest of her life if we really tore the wall down in the kitchen. Just a few days later, she was happily eating breakfast on our new bar.
Change is hard for some people. And that’s ok.
People like me, on the other hand, usually get pretty excited about change (except when you try to replace the recliner).
We love redecorating a room and do it often.
We never wear the same outfit twice.
We are constantly downloading apps just because we want to try the newest thing.
We try a new way home just to see if it’s faster.
And that’s ok too.
Neither of us are right. We are who we are and we both need each other.
I’m sure both kinds of people read this blog so you’re going to take some news I have differently.
See, the thing is, changes are around the corner for this blog. Big changes.
If you like change, I want you to celebrate with me! You’re probably excited wondering what is going on and want a list of all the changes to see if you approve or disapprove. You’d be ok if I changed the design and RIGHT NOW because that would be FUN.
If you hate change, like Lexi, you’re probably rolling your eyes and saying you don’t like it already. Why do people have to keep changing their blogs?? It’s ok.
Lexi has given me a new dose of compassion for change-haters. I want to give you a big hug right now and tell you I love you, I’m not doing this torture you and I’m pretty sure you’ll like it once we all settle in. Will you at least give it a try?
Here’s what’s coming:
- A new blog name
- A matching new URL
- A new design
- A new me with more focus
- Lots of the same posts
And it’s coming fast. Next Monday, April 8th I’ll be unveiling a new site. I am so, so excited about it and ready to tell you all that’s been going on behind the scenes.
In the meantime, I have a little sneak peek over at the brand new AmyJBennett.com.
For you change lovers, you can click on over to see if you like it and you change haters can click if you’d like to start preparing yourself.
In all seriousness, I do love you. You have no idea how much I think about you and ways I can serve you through writing. I feel like this is the next right step for this corner of the Internet and I hope you’ll step with me.
I’ll be posting for Five Minute Friday tomorrow as usual and then the blog will probably be wonky for the weekend while we get things moved over. Lord willing on Monday morning, everyone needs to come (or will be redirected) to the new AmyJBennett.com and I’ll start explaining just how all this happened. Squee!
