My other blog


The iphone decided that E. Capitol Street should be blue. Ok. I won't argue with it. Though - it wasn't blue, it really wasn't.

OK. A few weeks ago I was ready to dump blogging forever. But I stuck with it, just because I am ornery. What came out of it is funny - I started a new blog! Two blogs? Am I nuts?

The other blog, Chateau Seven is going to serve as a website for my massage practice. I'll be writing exclusively about healing there. I'm surprised I have so much to say about healing. I can hardly STOP writing posts about it. Wow.

I'm not clear what's going to happen here at the Gold Puppy. Much more of my energy is in the other blog at the moment, but you never know what's going to happen next. I'm not burning any bridges, not just yet.


A week someone pulled and threw on the sidewalk. Looks like a comet to me.

SO happy you're writing this more focused blog! I love your healing and more shamanic posts. Going right over to check it out.

I think we do finish with things, no matter how much we like them sometimes. I used to have tremendous fun with my stuffed rabbit blog, and now it could be fun, it could be interesting, but eh. Done with it.
I love reading The Gold Puppy, but it's understandable that it wouldn't go on forever. It's great, and I hope you continue - on the condition it makes you happy.

Hey Reya,

Good for you! I too liked your Gold Puppy blog, although I haven't been the best at stopping by and catching up on everyone's blogs, the times I have visited here have been great. It is always so refreshing to read what is on other people's minds and I love to see how each of us are such individuals viewing their part of the world just a little bit differently than the other. But I know what you are saying about feeling like you can't go on forever with blogging, and then BAM you take another path and start a different blog. I myself have gone back and forth with my poetry blog, guest writing on another, I even created a blog for awhile to deal with my fear of aging, it was all in good fun of course/I deleted it because I got out what I needed to - and then there is my Mindful Mystic blog which I just started writing on again and I am very excited about! Point is I feel blogging is a great way to explore yourself and all its many facets. And when you hit on something that really stirs you up and fills you with enjoyment, you know it is a part of you that you need to stop and visit with and pay attention to. Others also pick up on that good energy and it becomes beneficial for them as well. So best of luck to you with your new blog. I am very interested in such topics, so I will be sure to visit often. Take care.

I've added it to my dashboard. I started my blog as more of a journal. eventually I want to get it all in print and have it bound so I can leave it behind for my descendants. I've always wanted to know more about the lives of my forebears besides their dates of birth and death.

the only downside to you not blogging is that I would probably lose contact with you and that would make me sad.

I have been thinking about giving up my blog as well. My shops are both getting busy and the hours I spend on the blog are really needed with my business. I'm not sure why I haven't completely let go yet, wondering about that. Going over to visit your new digs :)

Reya Mellicker said...

Ellen we are of course going to stay in contact, here and on Facebook.

Who knows what will happen here? The jury is still out.

Cole great to hear from you. Yes and yes about exploring through writing. But to me blogging is about connection with other people. I keep a journal in which I work through things. Here I make friends, learn about how people all over the world walk through their days. I am pro-blog and I vote!

I took a quick look and will go back for more thorough reading later. That is a great service you are providing to your clients (and other interested parties)to get them in the best possible frame of mind to receive your healing. Cool!

I kind of like having two blogs - one that focuses on my housebuilding efforts, and one that just random miscellaneous stuff.

Nancy said...

Sounds great - a trasition, or maybe just a new way of expressing all that you have to give.

Jo said...

If you abandon Gold Puppy, who will give us information on astronomy and gastronomy and photography and philosophy...and everything in between?

I suppose we could cope, but I'd rather not...

Seriously, I LOVE the new blog and the new direction you're taking. You need to focus your energies where they are called to be right now. Do NOT let guilt trips from me influence you (haha!)♥

Gemel said...

I think about giving up my little blog sometimes as well, but it is in my posts that I say what it really means to be me, sharing the deep and lovely aspects of being a human....

Reya Mellicker said...

Well I'm not quitting this blog just yet, but it is changing to be sure and I may end up quitting at some point. I still have things to say.

Gemel and Nancy and Jo and all the rest of you - blogging the way we do it is a force for good. I'm glad you keep at it. Thank you!

BTW in case anyone cares, I figured out I had the HDT button switched on the iphone camera yesterday which is why it decided that E. Capitol Street was blue.

reya the first true love of my life called these moments "dans le vent" which she loosely translated as "in the wind". this was when she described something entirely following its natural course, moving where it needed to be or was most needed. i admire you most for letting yourself happen. steven

Steve Reed said...

Wow, another blog! You're a glutton for punishment, aren't you?! :)

I hope you stick around here too, for those of us who like catching up with you in a more personal, less professional sense. (But I'll check out Chateau Seven too!)

Cheryl Cato said...

I'll miss your philosophy of life in this blog. I shall be stopping by Chateau Seven and adding it to my blog list, but I'll so miss The Gold Puppy if you let it go. It makes me sad to think of it. It's sort of like losing Jake all over again, but sometimes one has to move on.

Linda Sue said...

Your pots sign also caught my eye- loving your photos- always! Also loving your other blog- so helpful- we all are healing from something...
LOVE!

Mary said...

I've added, subtracted, eliminated, disappeared, returned.....the rules are only yours. I'll always love to catch up with your life and thoughts, you're good company
