Facets of Lucy

Looking at the various side of a life

Good-bye and Thanks


This is my final post.  I started blogging in 2012, spelling out the experiences of my step-father as he served in World War II ( onemansjourneythruww2.wordpress.com ). Once that was complete, I wanted to try my hand at a more personal blog.  I’ve posted over 100 times and I’ve learned some things:

  • I’m not as funny as I think I am.
  • I don’t have a voice which moves other bloggers online.
  • I’m more private than I thought I was.

Sisters Dad

I love the blogging world and will be checking in now and then.  But after looking at how many drafts I’ve started that I’ve not published because of my privacy or someone else’s, I decided I’m more of a journal keeper than a blogger.  Believe me, the audience of my journal finds me funny, and is fascinated with what I have to say.  And I have no privacy concerns with keeping a journal.  So thanks for dropping by and giving me a try.

Last bit of housekeeping:  To my most constant blog follower:  I love you.  Thanks for your faithful support.  A sister is a special gift in a crazy world.

  1. I will be sorry to see you go. 😦

  2. I am also sorry you are moving in a different direction, but I do understand your reasoning. Blogging has also taught me similar lessons, and I question the need for me to add my own “blog voice” to the cacophony. 🙂 Best of luck to you, and enjoy your journal!

  3. Don’t go! Or at least let me read your journal! xo

  4. Sure, we can exchange journals like a book club. My money says yours is wayyy more interesting.

  5. For the record, I think you’re endlessly funny and I’m fascinated with what you have to say. Time for the next blog: Rest-stops Across Virginia!

    • Thank you! I find your writings to be creative and challenging at the same time even though your topics are often outside of my comfort zone. Your praise and encouragement could someday get that next blog, “Rest Stops Across Virginia” to see the light of day.
