Is There Anybody Out There?

Hello, dear friends.

Remember me?

Oh, how quickly they forget.

I'm Andrea.

Good Girl Gone Redneck.

I'm the blogger who you hear from now and again, the one - maybe - who you wonder about. You ask yourself, I wonder what books she's reading. I wonder if she's still on Whole30? Is she officially divorced yet?

Well, the answers to your questions will come!!!

I'm writing again.

I have to.

I miss it so much.

I hate that I ever stopped.

But I think that I needed to catch my breath.

I had been writing on and off throughout my separation from my husband and struggled with the emotions writing brought forth. I found it (and still find it) important to be open and honest with my friends. The rare few who subscribe to my site.

This is me.

I've been through a number of ringers over the past year and my hope is that I can find my way back to y'all in a way that makes me someone you enjoy reading. Someone you find you can relate to. And someone you find simply gets it. Gets you. Gets all the things, or at least offers you ways to help you get them for yourself.

And so, since I started this post a few days ago, I'm just gonna hit the ole publish button and say hey, okay? And if you're so inclined? Say hey back, wouldja? I'd love to hear from you.


  1. Hey! I don’t follow much, but love keeping up with you!! Hugs and I’m glad I saw your tweet with this post! ❤️

  2. *waves*
    I am VERRRRRY familiar with unwanted blogging breaks. Facebook brought it to my attention one day last week that six years ago I posted, "I finally blogged after 8 days! LONGEST BREAK EVERRRRR." I wish my current break was 8 days! LOL
    I'm getting back to it again soon too. Welcome back!

  3. Welcome back lady! Glad to see your face again!

  4. Hey! Breathe. You've got this! And, on days when you think you don't, take a break, but really, you've got this!

    I'm almost 37k into my manuscript.


  5. Welcome back. Your journey is different than you had planned but it’s still yours to plan. You’ve got this!!

  6. Hey girl!!! Good to hear from you. All the hugs!

  7. So glad to see you again! Was wondering where you went! Hang in there.....and keep writing!

  8. Hi Friend!! Writing is definitely one of my ways to work through different situations and emotions. I know you've got great things ahead . . . as always!


Comments are like air to a writer.
