As I’m slowly rebuilding my readership, traffic and reach on this new blogging journey, I thought it would be helpful to share why write about my life.
It’s new information for some and a reminder for others.
If you’ve been a reader since Lost and Tired, there have been some changes, but my writing should still be largely recognizable.
Part of me hated to walk away from what I’d built with Lost and Tired over the past 6 years, but part of me feels a sense of relief and excitement. Lost and Tired was the real life story of two parents raising three special needs kids.
It was raw, gritty but beautiful and inspiring at the same time.
So many people felt a connection because I shared things in a way that was very honest, transparent and relatable. That earned me some 80,000,000 hits over the last six years which is pretty impressive for a niche blog like mine.
Sadly, since last year, the boys and I were sorta thrust into a new journey that would change everything for the rest of our lives.
When my wife walked away in October of 2014, the Lost and Tired journey met with what would be at the very least, a detour. I was grieving, the boys were grieving and what was left of our lives, was shattered into a million, almost unrecognizable pieces.
That sudden detour took me away from just raising three kids with special needs and placed me square in the middle of the most traumatizing experience their young lives.
How could we continue living our lives until be started to rebuild them first?
