Long time no see, my fellow RHIT! As I mentioned back in my January post, I needed to take a few (or seven) months off from my blog. I have been writing during that time, but I needed to focus on my full-time job and a few side projects. I needed to do this without the guilt of letting you down every week that went by without a post.
But, as promised, it has been worth it! I have a decently-sized backlog of my thoughts and musings to share, so this post marks the first in a (hopefully) long stream of consistent content!
A new and improved experience for my fellow RHITs
If you took a Surviving The Real World break along with me, you’ll notice a few updates have been made to the site. I wanted to give everything a more streamlined look, and felt the original site was lacking in the color purple.
While a new “About The Blog” section is still pending (I’ll let you know when it’s up), there are a few additional changes to my blog posts. The old content still exists, but the categories have changed.
Blog posts in Christian Living
This is where you’ll find the majority of the content you know and love. This will be my place for all things walking with the Lord; how to handle Christian relationships, relationships with non-Christians and your relationship with God.
And I promise, there will be more than just relationship posts.
Blog posts in Money Matters
If you were a fan of my financial blog posts, but less excited about the touchy-feeling Jesus posts, this is the category for you! While I’ve always approached my finances from a biblical perspective, this category will be more faith-neutral than “Christian Living”.
This will continue to be my content for advice on managing your money, budgeting, saving, and living the financially stable life you’ve always dreamed of.
Blog posts in The Real World
And finally, the newest addition to Surviving The Real World. I previously dabbled in blog posts related to productivity and finding your purpose, but my new site will have a much stronger focus on these topics. I’ll tackle everything from waking up early to dressing like a real person.
If you’re a recent college graduate, you may want to start here.
How STRW has changed during my hiatus
The most important reason I stepped away from my blog for a while was to gain fresh perspective.
Why did I start a blog in the first place? To hear myself talk? (Or see myself write?)
I’ve realized my ultimate goal in this life is to help others live their fullest lives possible.
In every day life, that means living and walking with the Lord while learning to be more like Jesus. In personal finance, it means being a good steward of the resources God has provided while still managing to enjoy life. In work and employment, it means doing all things with integrity and learning how to not only survive, but thrive in the working world.
So, my fellow RHIT, I am so grateful you have come with me this far. I hope my new and improved site provides everything you’ve been looking for!
