It's Started...

Already I'm getting emails (I should say email -singular - don't want to over exgerrate this) regarding my blog.

One of my best friends, Emily Huffman, sent me an email yesterday. She was excited about my new blog, but concerned with whether or not I was keeping my old one out there in the ethers of time and space (the internet).

Sure, I'll keep my old blog open to the public. It's great for me, and others, to look back with fondness and trepidation of the events of time's past.

So, if you want a walk down memory lane just you'll find those posts at Jenwinker's Journal.

Of course, I won't be adding anything new to that journal, so continue to come on back to "Life In Another Valley" (that's the name of this current blog) for the most up to date information on ME.

A Fresh New Start

About three years ago I joined the "blogger world", and I kept up semi-regular posts for two and a half years. Then last November I lost all motivation for blogging; I know it's quite sad.

So, why did I lose my (semi)passion for blogging, and what got me started in it in the first place? One word, UTAH!!

Three years ago in May, I moved myself out to Utah. As a way staying in touch with family and friends, as a method for venting the everyday, I began to blog. Last November I moved back to Virginia after two and a half years in Utah. At the time I was way too busy to blog, then completely unmotivated to do so (I live near my family now), and it didn't seem I had anything to share.

I felt all that until recently. In the last several weeks I've been itching to write about the "everyday" again. I can't promise I'll keep regular and consistent entries, but atleast I won't mysteriously vanish for six months again.

There were stories to share about Utah, and there are stories to share about Virginia, so prepare yourself.
