The name of my blog abode here has changed over the years, as so many of you know.
It started out as Just Diggin' Around, and then became Diggin' Around.
Not that long ago, after much contemplation, I made a big change with renaming it The Portable Homestead. And that was the right thing for me at the time.
In recent weeks however, I've been rethinking the name again.
The Portable Homestead is where we live, where Hubbs is caretaker, and where I garden (mostly in containers), so that will continue to be a part of my blog, but (to me) it narrows the focus, or direction of you will, and I want my blog to have a name that's more encompassing of my life as a whole, vs just a specific area of it. Not that I have let the name (TPH) change what I write about, I still share as I always have, but a different name would help me to feel more comfortable about sharing in the same way - if that makes sense.
Earlier this month, I was writing a letter to include with a Christmas card, and as I wrote, "...this perfectly imperfect life..." it grabbed a hold of my attention and has yet to let go! I've been turning it over in my mind ever since, journaling about it, and asking for feedback (elsewhere), which has been positive. It's so very me, especially at this point in my life! My life is far from perfect, and that's okay. Quite often I'm a mess! And that's okay. I've always shared the good with (much of, but not all of) the bad. And that's okay too! But, no matter what, I am so blessed, and I appreciate all of our blessings, regardless of how they may look from the outside. Perfectly imperfect. I wouldn't have it any other way.
And so... I believe The Portable Homestead will become This Perfectly Imperfect Life for the New Year!
What are your blogging plans for the new year?
