girl talk: heaven's to betsy

Hey A Tiny Traveler readers!

First off, thanks so much to Natalie for having me today!

I'm Betsy and I blog over at Heavens to Betsy.  Natalie has asked me to share a little bit about my recent Girl Talk series.

A few weeks ago, I was looking for inspiration about what to write on my blog.  Since I started HTB all the way back in 2009, it's been a mixture of posts about the daily in and out of my life, to recipes and DIYs, to deeper posts about life, God, the future, etc.  On this particular day, I was searching for a greater purpose to my blog and really, for ways to use it to inspire and encourage others.

That's where Girl Talk came from.  Let's be real...as girls, we like to talk.  About boys, about life, about beauty and hair and makeup.  And as Christians, about God.  So Girl Talk is a feature (for now, it's been weekly), where I've really just gotten to share my heart about things that I'm learning.

I've written about boys and my relationship.  About Facebook and fakeness.  About trusting God.

Here's a quote from one of my favorite posts was about dreams:
"You see, there's a vulnerability to realizing our dreams aloud.  For me, it was the worry of what others might think, that by wanting first and foremost to be a wife and mother, would mean relinquishing my intellect and potential to have a promising career in whatever field I chose.  That I was somehow shedding what so many women have fought so long and hard for in exchange for an apron and minivan."

But even more than just sharing my heart, I want Girl Talk to be an opportunity for conversation.  I want it to be a place where girls can open up and begin deeper conversations.

So, if you're a girl and you like to chat with other girls, well.....Let's talk.
