A Few Changes

Lately I've been having an online identity crisis. I have been fighting an inner battle between being Laura and being Along for the Ride -- between being a blog and a brand and being just plain old me.

All the social media handles and logins that seemed so foreign and phony to me. Trying to remember passwords and which email address I used where.

So I would like to reintroduce myself. My name is Laura Denlinger -- and that's how you'll see me online from now on. Yes, Along for the Ride is the name of my blog, but it doesn't define me. It doesn't limit who I am on- and offline. It's a cherished title that I use to share my voice and my story.

But in the end, the story belongs to me.

I made a few changes. Where I could, I changed my name to my real name. You'll now see Laura Denlinger's photos pop up in Instagram. Laura Denlinger is now following you on Twitter.

I've tried to make things as simple as possible and change as many handles to good 'ole aftr_laura. No more millions of ways to combine my name and blog -- just the one.

And now, because the things I write and do here are so personal to me, I'm using and advertising my personal email address -- laura.c.denlinger @ gmail . com.

Gosh, I feel like I'm meeting you all again for the first time!

This feel good. Actually it feels great. It feels organized, and real, and honest.


Along For the Ride

I'll be sharing prayer requests and praises later today. Can I add your's to the list?
