The Future of Peace Love Nursing Blog

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week! We are still enjoying the beauty of the Western NC mountains and dog/house sitting for my sister in law. And to my fellow Taylor lovers- Happy Release Day! I am so excited the Midnight Album is finally here and it will definitely be on repeat allll weekend! I hope my husband is ready, ha!

Today I’m chatting a little bit about the blog and where I hope to go. I started PLN in 2016 when I was in my LPN to RN nursing program as a way to document my journey. I shared study tips, clinical experience, and then moved on to sharing about the trials of a new grad nurse. When I got my job at the hospital- I was paralyzed by the fear of anyone finding my blog. So I stopped writing.. for over a year. I then decided to come back to the blog-because whenever I take a break- I miss it. This is a creative and stress outlet for me. I love getting the change to write, share pics, and create graphic designs for the blog.

The blog has always had a nursing focus, with a sprinkle of lifestyle post. About 7 months ago- I started Nurses Supporting Nurses, a space to help support the mental health of nurses, CNAs, and nursing students. I absolutely love hosting a support group and other work I do with NSN. It is obviously, very heavily nursing focused and can be a little bit more heavy- since a lot of the focus in on mental health.

I have always loved lifestyle blogs. I get a lot of recipes, outfits, RV tips, travel ideas- all kinds of stuff from bloggers! I have so much respect for people who take the time to share with the world through writing. It’s what inspired me to start my own blog! I never really shared anything like recipes or Amazon finds (other than nursing related Amazon finds) but I have always secretly wanted too! I have some recipes I have perfected over the years I would love to share for example- but imposter syndrome and fear of being judged always stopped me. However, I have done a lot of work through therapy, coaching, self care… and if Covid taught me anything, it’s that life is too short and too fragile to not do what brings you joy.

All of this is a very long winded (in true Megan fashion) way of saying I am hoping to expand the blog past the nursing realm. We still will have at least one nursing related post every Wednesday because that is a large part of who I am and my passion. But I want to begin to share things like recipes, RV life, travel, whatever my interest is at that time! I think sharing all parts of yourself on a blog (within reason, of course) is important to being authentic and growing a relationship with readers. I know I love things like “day in the life” or travel recaps from the bloggers I follow.

You probably had already noticed some changes with post like Our Jack & Jill Bachelor/Bachelorette Party and Fall Foliage & Weekend Happenings, but I wanted to write a post to talk about the change (partially for accountability!) I hope to blog every Monday, Wednesday & Friday- with Wednesday being a day dedicated to nursing related post. I hope you will stick around and if you ever see a post you like- I’d love if you would share it on social media or with a friend!

Thank you for the continued support on my blog! What is something you would like to see on the blog- please share below!
