I’ve lost my Wojo. What’s Wojo you ask? It’s a word I just this moment made up, it’s my wine mojo. I still love wine, hell I’m pretty sure the red stuff that runs through my veins is mostly blood but I’m sure there’s a good amount of wine in there too. But I’ve lost my creative vision for this blog and where I want to go with it now after 5 years.
I started Wine Chicks Guide in August of 2009. I was a bit disgruntled and I needed an outlet. I lost my full time status at a company I’d been at for 10 years and I needed a voice. Now, 5 years later, I still work part time and I love it. My husband and I moved from Florida to get closer to the mountains and live a simpler lifestyle. We have more land and more home than we had in FL yet carry no debt, no mortgage, no car payment, credit cards are used for the points and paid off each month. I’m very fortunate, I realize that and even though I’ve made many changes in the past few years, I think I need another one, where do I want to take Wine Chicks Guide?
I feel like I’ve grown and changed so much and that my interests are so much more now. In case you haven’t noticed I haven’t been posting as much this year. Part of that is my new position takes up so much of my time and my evenings are just for my husband and me. The other part is I just had major surgery three weeks ago so I was getting work stuff done, then in recovery, then in catch up mode. But if I truly felt committed, I know I would have carved out the time.
Over the next few weeks I’m going to make some gradual changes to my posts. I’ll still post about wine but I’ll also include some of my other interests like cooking, DIY and just simple living. I hope you’ll all stick with me for the journey.
