Something New


I’ve been blogging since 2006, and since that time, I’ve maintained a small presence over at It was a good run; I published 592 posts there about everything from garbage in my front yard to cancer updates when I was actively receiving treatment. I exposed some of my deepest struggles with singleness in that space, as well as the news of my recent marriage. My siblings, parents, and nieces and nephews were all starring characters at various times, as was my house and my two dogs, Precious and Tilly.

I’ve had a good run at blogging.

And I’m not done yet. It’s just that I have a new name and my writing career has taken some new turns in the last year or two, and when I added all that up, now seemed like the perfect time to transition to a new website and a new blog.

So, I’d like to welcome you to this new space. I designed it myself, so it’s very simple. The front page is more like a welcome mat now; you’ll find the blog by walking down the hall, third door on the left.

It’s a new place, but it’s the same me. And I hope you’ll visit often.

    Gorgeous. Thanks for the welcome.

    I love this Charity – and you did it yourself!

      Thanks, Linda. Lyla Lindquist was my consultant! She answered questions for me when I would get stuck. So I guess I didn’t do it all myself! But it feels like a great accomplishment nonetheless.

      The site looks great and I, too, am looking forward to what’s in store!

      Gorgeous! I really can feel the wide open here…such a deep breath. Thanks for the invitation. I do hope to stop by often 😉

        Thank you, Laura. Wide open spaces has been an important metaphor for me over the years. I didn’t exactly want to name my blog that anymore, but I wanted to keep the concept going. I think it’s rich. So glad you came!

        Megan – That’s EXACTLY what I was hoping. I wanted it to look and feel like me. Thank you for the compliment.

        • Megan Willome ,

          It’s so you, Charity! And I’m happy to move over here with you and experience the new.

            I love it! Thanks for inviting us in, friend. I’m going to head down the hall and see what’s new!

              Hope you found your way down the hall, Ann. Let me know if it’s not intuitive to find your way around. I was going for simple, streamlined, easy.
