Welcome to the new blog home, where I have transformed what used to be, “Hello, I’m Alet” and given it a fresh start in “The Curious Wildflower“
Now I am sure you must be wondering why I came up with the name – The Curious Wildflower. In this post, I am sharing my thoughts relating to the new name and domain!
Truth is, I have been blogging since 2007!
I have had many different blogs. Initially
I started a blog called Sparrow at Heart. Another total failure.
After Many Failed Blogs/Websites, I found a home.
Finally I read a blog posted that stated, if you can’t find an interesting name for your website – simply use your actual name. So I tried it.
Hello, I’m Alet, has been a work in progress for a couple of years. I have enjoyed using my own name and yet, at times, I felt a little exposed by it!
The other thing I noticed – was that “Alet” isn’t really a term sought often in Google. Don’t get me wrong – search rankings isn’t the most important thing when writing a website! But let’s be honest, it is nice to see your blog featured on the first page of a Google search.
I have had a couple of posts that have done really well. Truth be told, most of the traffic to alet.co.za was organic traffic, meaning it
Juggling Multiple Websites
After a failed marriage, I needed an anonymous space. I created yet another website called braveandbroken.co.za. Truth be told – if one website is a lot of work – believe you me,
The New Blog Home
To keep this little introductory post from becoming really long, I will cut to the chase!
I have grown tremendously in the past couple of years. It started with a year of self-discovery and healing after my ex and I separated. It was a difficult year, of trying to cope on my own, balance my emotions and deal with the anger and resentment I felt towards him.
Hands down! Staying single for a year was the best thing I could have done for me!
After a year, I unexpectedly met Al. Funny, intelligent and kind.
Al is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with – something I am incredibly excited about.
I have always been ambitious, at time even a little reckless in my pursuit! The last couple of years, however, my focus has changed! It is no longer me and my ambition. My ambition goes hand-in-hand with others.
My heart is to share the journey and help others along the way!
I’m no longer the young teen-mom I was when I started blogging. I am a woman! I have lived through single parenting, I’m living through divorce. Body/weight issues, check. Insecurities and hurt – you bet! I long for more, abundance! Rich experiences and relationships. Healthy well-adjusted kids, who are confident and competent in their identities.
I want to be whole.
Knowing you can never achieve wholeness on your own makes the world of difference. By know we are strong when we are weak, is the key. Living in relation to Christ is the only way I know how! Even if I get it wrong more
Hello, I’m Alet no longer suffice – because the journey doesn’t revolve around me. It revolves around us! A field of wildflowers
is much prettier than a single flower!
The Curious Wildflower, my new blog home, is an invitation to journey with me. Laugh with me, cry with me and allow me to do the same for you!
