After weeks of behind-the-scenes work, I’m happy to announce that my on-line world is changing. My core passions are still strong: telling stories, finding beauty via art and photos, chasing adventures, mentoring others and spending time in Nature. But, as I mentioned in a previous post (click HERE to read it), I have found a new career that encompasses all of these things. To be more professional, I am expanding my presence on-line.
I have a new website with an easier to remember URL. Now I can be found at www.thebigepic.com. Everything is up and running (and looking pretty). I have told you before how supportive my husband is of me reaching for dreams. (Read blog posts about him HERE and HERE.) Big shout-out to hubby who once again rescued me! He did much of the tech-work to set up the website plus mopped up buckets of tears when I was overwhelmed.
The Big Epic blog will be a focus of the website. The stories and photos you enjoy will always be the centerpiece! We already have new adventures on our calendar for this spring and summer. (You ARE coming with us virtually, aren’t you?) In addition, there will eventually be stories and resources related to Forest Therapy. Current subscribers (who receive notification of each new post via email) are being moved along with the blog. (Don’t worry—no packing boxes required. I will do the “moving” for you!) *If you follow this blog via WordPress, you will no longer see new posts after this one. Don’t miss out! Please head to the website and subscribe for email notifications!*
Most of you know that I’m comfortable being very open about what’s going on in my life. I have been urged, however, that it would be wise to separate “personal” from “business” on Facebook. I’ve put together a new page for The Big Epic. (Click HERE to check it out. Please “Like” and “Follow” to see new things I post there.) Within the next few weeks, I will regularly add nature photos, links to new blog posts, tips for connecting with nature, mini stories of outdoor adventures, and more.
You’ve seen many of the photos I have taken of beautiful scenery and tiny wonders found on our adventures. Most of you probably don’t know that I collect quotes (pages and pages and pages of them…let’s not talk about all of the computer files, notebooks, and binders filled with quotes, okay?!) I am making collaged scrapbook pages to illustrate “Lessons from the Forest.” Photos of these pages will be gradually added to a gallery on the website. I’m also learning how to add quotes directly to digital photos. In the next few weeks, I will begin sharing these photos on a new Instagram account for The Big Epic.
I am excited about all the new things happening with The Big Epic! I so much appreciate the encouragement many of you have given me. I look forward to continuing our conversations in new ways and new places on the internet.
