Hi! I feel compelled to explain the intention of the titles of my blog posts. I do not need to justify myself to anyone, but think it makes sense to clarify before people get all up in arms or something.
I am writing about my life. Grief is a big part of it. My husband died & I have kids & we are all grieving & probably will be forever. My hope is that through this blog I can help someone who may be going through any similar situation as I am (even non-grief related). That being said, one of the main reasons I started this blog was to help people. When I had a question in the first six months of my grieving, I did not often turn to a trusted loved one or a professional. I turned to Google. And when I was googling my situation(s), I found nothing. I want to be as visible as possible to as many people as possible so I can help them get through whatever they are going through.
My Googling looks a lot like this:
“My husband died and left me with our three kids to raise and I don’t know wtf to do”
“Chic from America’s Got Talent who sings the roots song that she wrote”
“What is that show with the 2 guys who go around looking in old barns for stuff that is worth money so they can resell it?”
You get the picture. Anyways, what I am getting at is that when people Google things, they don’t often search for a witty, well-thought out blog post title. They search for real life situations they are in using the most common thought processes they have. Or at least I do. I figure, what can it hurt to be blunt in my titles? Nothing. What can it help? It can help people to find exactly what they need when they need it.
Make Good Choices.
~Love & Light, Sarah
