I’ve thought about it for a couple of years and talked out loud about it almost as long. I took small steps toward it in January, but the change felt unnecessary and a little scary. After the Speak Up conference in June, I resolved to make it happen, even though the change still seemed daunting. Actually, a little scary turned into a lot scary but I pressed through the doubt and fear and am thrilled about the change now.
I’m finally doing it.
I’m making the leap to a whole new website designed by my friend and graphic designer, Monica Yother. She and I worked together years ago and it was a joy reconnecting, reminiscing, and collaborating on this project. The process was beautiful.
The new website is a labor of love on my part. Take my ideas and passion, add her creativity and eye for design, mix in her encouragement and my courageous moments, hundreds of back-and-forth emails, some meetings, hours and hours of work, lots of questions and edits and you get a beautifully designed website that feels exactly how I want it to feel.
The new site will be up next week. I can hardly wait for you to see it.
If you subscribe by email to this website, you’ll receive new posts from the new site in your email. No action is needed. Just eagerly await the new site.
If you’d like to receive email notifications of posts from my new site, please subscribe by email to this site. Enter your email address where it says, “You’ll get new posts through email” on the home page.
I’m excited about this change. I think you will be too.

Great to see you taking the plunge!
Thank you Michelle. I’m still quite nervous. I love the community and encouragement here and hope my community follows me to the new site. I’m still learning how all of this works. Those who follow me on this wordpress site and receive email notifications will not automatically be added to my email followers on the new site. But I know this change is necessary and good.
Can I add your email to my new site subscribers list? I have it since you left a comment, but can add it to my email list only with your permission.
So happy for you !!

I certainly will! I can’t wait for you to see it. It’s beautiful. I have no idea what I’m doing but I’ll keep moving forward and see what happens.
