Feeling Trapped

Don’t worry this blog isn’t nearly as serious as the title would suggest.  I have not suddenly found myself trapped in a life or a marriage that I no longer love.  On the contrary, I’m quite happy with both!  I have, however, found myself trapped in a blog rut that I can no longer handle.  If you were a follower of my Original Dauntless Dames blog (located on my business website) then you know that it was primarily a firearms and self-defense blog.  You also know that I was not very consistent about posting new content and for this I sincerely apologize.  I had the best of intentions but alas, life and an uncooperative brain got in the way.  It’s not that I have lost my passion for firearms or self defense they are both still a huge part of my life and who I am in general.  I still teach firearms courses at least once a month, I take Taekwondo classes a few times a week and I hope to start back in grappling soon.  Despite all of this when I would sit down to write the creative juices just refused to flow and instead I found myself wanting to write about the other things that were going on in my life, like my latest DIY project or how living with an auto immune disease has affected my day.  Since I felt like I couldn’t really write what I wanted I just stopped writing altogether and eventually (sometimes I’m a little slow) I figured out there had to be a better solution. 

I said all of this to say: I’m branching out in a new direction.  My blog will hopefully still contain all of the things that you came here to read but it will also contain an eclectic mix of everything else going on In my crazy, never boring life.  I’ll try to break it into categories so that you can choose to stick to the main topic you came here for, or you can choose to follow me in whatever direction my brain decides to take me in, the choice is entirely up to you.

One last thing, I am still in the process of updating and moving all of my old content to my new site so please bear with me during this transition time.  I will make an honest effort to add some new content to go along with the old but things may seem a little out of order for a while.  If you have any suggestions or comments about the new layout or anything else you read I would love to hear from you.
