About the Website

My Blog used to be entitled The Hole on the End of the Bible Belt. I didn’t change it because I was out of topics to discuss that met my criteria for inclusion, but rather because of my taking a job somewhere other than in the Bible Belt of the US. Almost a half world away in fact. In an active combat zone. Where Americans are targets, ignorance is rampant, yet good people still exist in large numbers. And a new promise is constantly on the horizon. For a better explanation of why I changed the name, see my post Blog Transitioned.

So I re-named my blog A Year Without Wearing a Tie. Then my year ended. Sixteen months later, though  I actually brought a tie back after my last trip home for a job interview. It was more than a year since I had worn a tie. It wasn’t a video interview, it was telephonic but it just wouldn’t seem right to have an interview without wearing one. It worked because I got the job and came back to the Hole on the End of the Bible Belt. By then I had stopped writing though, see post from when I started back.

After a while with my writing still not picked up I had another telephonic interview for another job. Really the same job, but in a different place. Not the Bible Belt, not the Sand Box, but Europe. This time I wore pajamas for the interview. Still got the job. So I moved, again. A real challenging move, and I realized it was time to re-name the blog, again. To something that more matched what I was doing, a life Outside the Comfort Bubble. But somehow my blogging had changed to just travels and odd thoughts.

It may be that I’m too attached to the website name to try something new. Maybe I’ve re-named and shifted by blog too many times and it’s time to start over. Or maybe I’ve just been too busy growing and becoming who I should be. Whatever it is, I’m still up for the ride. Let’s see where we head to next.
