Happy Birthday, lil' blog!

Eight years ago today, which is akin to an eon in blogosphere years, I started this blog. Because I began in the era of snarktasticness (and before niche-blogging and Twitter), because I wanted an outlet for my writing and my goofy sense of humor, and because I just could, I wrote about whatever I felt like saying... and tried to do it with a lot of humor (most of the time). But eventually I realized that the snark was taking over, and as a born-again follower of Jesus Christ, I felt that I was not serving my Savior and Lord well and not adding value to the online community. So I hit "pause" on blogging. {Plus, I'm sure that part of it was RLTB — real life trumps blogging — going on. Aaaaand maybe some writer's block too.}

I still am not sure what this blog is supposed to be about, other than my thoughts, reflections, writing exercises, humor, and faith... and now makeup! (Haha.) I do know that I am going to continue to resist posting rants about Nashville traffic; my daily commute to work usually could provide fodder for much ranting, but who wants to read all that negativity? Plus, I need to extend grace to my fellow commuters. I'm sure I drive some of them bonkers with my style of driving.

Anyway, here be this blog, and here be me. And maybe I'll start sharing more about who the gal behind the "Elena" moniker really is. Especially now that I've revealed my face to the world (urm, to all four of you blog readers [ha!]).

Thank you for reading, friends. :)
