My blog and Youtube channel have been under…construction? I wanted to change things up and move away from homemaking a bit…not all the way…but a bit to move into other areas of interest. Therefore, I have been playing with new titles and looks. I apologize and I have not lost my mind. I may be going through a mini personality crisis as Evelyn so gently put but I will stop now with this new title Life With Kate. It is all-encompassing and flexible.
Why change? Well, This blog was titled Dirt Poor and Lovin’ It! but, after some reflection, I realized I don’t want to be dirt poor and I wouldn’t love it! It was catchy but this is not what I want to teach others. Simplicity and sustainability, yes. Poverty consciousness, no. It bothered me on a metaphysical level. I’m trying to teach others to be happy with what they have but to continue to grow and improve, not stay stuck in difficult financial situations.
My Youtube will have this Dirt Poor and Lovin’ It! title for the next 2 months as I have to wait to change it due to changing it too many times already. Then it will also become Life With Kate. Confused about what I’m offering? Yes and no.
Recently a few things have happened. First I began studying The Course in Miracles and that created all sorts of havoc. The good kind of course. Then my computer pooped out and I didn’t have any internet for 5 days. That was life-changing. On top of all that I felt like I had come to the end of the homemaking road. I don’t know how much more I have to offer and not much of what I give is original. I hunt and forage for ideas and advice and then share it. I felt like going in new directions.
I would like to start sharing my experience in yet another life transformation and inspire others. But then I realized that all of life is a part of that conversation. I’ve talked homemade laundry soap and baking bread ad nauseam. Time to start some new chat over coffee.
However, upon further discussion (in my mind) I realized that I love all parts of my life and I want to continue serving all of you on all levels. For some, it would be finding ways to save money, or healthier eating, becoming or supporting a plant-based diet, gluten-free recipes, losing weight, planting and tending to kitchen gardens, raising chickens, running a home more efficiently, homeschooling. Then there are the topics of being happy, spiritual work, Course in Miracles, the Bible, loving the simple life, being sober, life transformations, and personal overhauls.
Thus Life With Kate!!!
I’ll just cover it all and not corner myself into a small hole.
