So I’ll let you go, I’ll set you free
and when you see what you need to see
When you find you, come back to me
Wha-what? Wait, you were only on Day 8 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge. What’s going on?
Here’s the thing. When I first started this blog, I had a very specific theme and idea in mind. I wanted to use quotes and messages from pop culture and use them to explore spirituality. And for a good portion of time, I accomplished that. Then I hit a dry spell. Not that I wasn’t inspired. On the contrary, I had lots of notes for entries. The challenge was just sitting down and writing them. To the point that I’d go months between entries. Not terribly conducive to building an audience, or making regular readers happy.
When things were really stressful, I stumbled upon someone else doing one of the many 30 Day Blog Challenges out there and thought it would be a good way to get my mojo back. And it worked, although I still wasn’t super consistent. But at least I was writing and posting more often than once every four to six months. It was a good break.
Problem is, I was still trying to make my entries fit the whole spiritual theme of the blog. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes, meh. I realized that I had kind of hijacked my own blog by posting things that, while entertaining and occasionally funny, didn’t really fit with my original intent.
So I’m taking it back.
Starting now, I’m going to work again to make The Sacred and The Profane my place to explore religion, philosophy, and spirituality with a pop culture twist. I can’t guarantee I’ll always have amazing insights, or an inspirational message that you can take with you, but I’ll try to stay true to my original plan. What’s with the “Come Back to Me” quote? I realized that, much like everything in the spiritual realm, even if you take a departure or detour, the lessons that you are learning or were meant to retain will be waiting for you when you go back to the original path. Sometimes you have to find what you think you were looking for to realize what it was you were truly on track to find.
This doesn’t mean that I’m giving up on telling amusing tales from my misguided youth, or sharing my adventures from my daily grind. No. In fact, I am adding to the pressure to produce. Kind of like the whole “publish or perish” mentality of higher education, I am adding another wrinkle to my forehead by creating a second blog. Call me crazy. Call me irresponsible. Just don’t call me late for breakfast.
While this site will be a way for me to explore what spirituality means to me, in the hopes of providing inspiration to others along the way, my new blog will be a way for me to explore…well, me. Doing a little navel gazing of my daily realm, while hopefully serving as a warning to others. Basically where this blog explores more of the sacred, The Adventures of Nagzilla will explore more of the profane. And believe me when I say, my real life is full of profanity. Chock. Full. Of delicious, humorous, never-ending profanity.
If you feel like checking out the new page, feel free to hop on over. I’ll still be here when you get back. Hopefully either here or there, you’ll find something to either make you smile or make you think. Maybe even a little of both. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned. More fun to come. On both pages.
