Upgrading Me … #Hopeannfaith

Leave a comment


Today I upgraded this place to Premium and I did some work on it to get it where I want it to be.

I want to use these gifts and callings of mine to write and photograph! I want to honor God in the best ways I am able and know how to do.

Having two art forms to create with is sometimes REALLY overwhelming just to think about! Things just run frantically around in my brain! Like …

Should I put writing or photography first? Which one does God want me to use, primarily? How do I find the time to do all of this?

And then there’s that voice saying … “OH. This is too much!” “How will you do this?” “See, no ones reading/viewing!”

Those self discouragements that we mull over in our times of overwhelming and frustration. Like this …

Still frustrated with a few features, but I’m not ready to “purchase” a theme! I’ve spent the morning creating and linking and then I changed up my twitter account too! Still can’t figure out how to lead you guys to where I am on Pinterest, Tumblr, and LinkedIn … I think there’s another, but I can’t remember at the moment. All this change has rendered my thoughts to splinters!

So I decided to stop and post this “progress report” to get myself out of the land of frustration and reset my brain to figure out how to be more attractive to YOU, the reader.

So I …

Made my writing logo:

And reestablished my photography logo:

OH! And I resurrected A.Hutchinson Photography Blog, though it remains a wordpress.com blog. For the moment. Posting on the photography log yesterday rewarded me with the most active day there since I started it! WhooHoo!

So that’s what I’ve been up to. Now I want to figure out the ins and outs of the hashtag. You know, like #Hopeannfaith … I need to find out if it’s even worth playing with the hashtag idea at all. I mean, how do these work anyway?

If you know about this and are free to school me, I’d appreciate the education. Just leave it in the comments! Thanks … and …

Thanks for reading my silliness.

ASignature.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
