So... I've moved


It feels weird to write this after such a long absence, but in case you've missed it, I wanted to let you all know a couple things.

First, I've moved. As in, out of Arkansas. We are back in Korea, this time living in Seoul.

On the one hand, everyone knows this. We moved here six months ago. I think I have plenty of places where people could have learned this, but one friend messaged me on Instagram just last week and said, "Wait, you're back in Korea?" Lol. Uh, yes. So I figure it's a good thing to say here anyway.

It's a looooong story, but it boils down to this. Matt had a job in Arkansas, but he missed what he had been doing here. When a very similar job opened up, he asked me if he could throw his name into the proverbial hat, and though we prayed at every juncture that God would close the door if it wasn't His will, doors just kept opening. So here we are! We still have the house in Fayetteville, and my parents are taking great care of it.

Second, I've moved as in, I'm not going to be keeping up this blog any more. I've been working on some other things I'm super excited for. Also, I don't feel like I'm a very good blogger. (Given that this is my first post in almost a year, you're probably going, "Ya think?!") I do want to be a good writer, and I often felt like what I was trying to do here kind of actually took away from my writing (figuring out the tech stuff, for instance, which I'm terrible at!).  

I sort of stumbled across Substack through a couple people I follow on Instagram and came to realize that it's more of what I'm looking to do -- all of the writing and none of the other stuff. So instead I've set up a free newsletter to publish once a month at joynicholas.substack.com . I'd love if you follow. (Did I mention it's free?) I really do want to stay in touch.

So that's it! Hopefully, I'll see you there. :-)
