Farewell Fer the love of writing

I am not sure how to write this post so I'm going to start with a trick someone told me to try when you're stuck in front of a blank page: write one true statement and go from there.  Let's see where this takes us.

I have written for as long as I can remember.

It wasn't always online or on a blog, but I have always written and discovered early on the power that words carry with them. Through this blog I have helped, encouraged, shared, loved, and grieved with people  who have done the same with me, some of them I have never even met in real life, but that's the thing with words, they really know no bounds. It has been an honor and a privilege to share my life with you and have you do the same in return.

I have loved writing for as long as I can remember.

It is the reason why the blog's name used to be a play on words of my nickname and my love for writing, and it is also the reason I never monetized this blog. At the risk of sounding cheesy, these words have been my love letter to whoever laid eyes on them, and there's also the fact that I had a full time job and I wrote when I wanted and had the time.

But life has changed, I have changed, and it is only logical that this blog, being the intricate part of me that it is, changes as well.

How? I am still working that out. You have already noticed {and complimented, thank you!} the name change and redesign. I chose Living Alaska: Life + Design + Style, because it is a more accurate portrayal of my life now, a more channeled way of using my love for the written word, and maybe, a way of life moving forward, but I could not move on without saying goodbye to Fer the Love of Writing, for it is the reason I am here. 

If you are new to this blog {hello!} read my ABOUT page and explore the Archives to get a better sense of who I am. If you are regular, thank you for sticking with me, I will make it worth your while.

Living Alaska
Life + Design + Style

Godspeed, full steam ahead!
