Rewriting Life is not a lifestyle blog.

I’m not going to tell you where I bought my patent leather pumps + floral forever scarf. You don’t care what movie I watched last Saturday night.

Rewriting Life is not a book blog.

It doesn’t matter how many books I’ve read in 2013 or how many clubs—virtual or otherwise—I belong to; if you want suggestions, though, email me.

Rewriting Life is not a copywriting blog.

I read them all, though, so get at me if you want lists.

Rewriting Life is not a food blog.

As much as I adore my dad’s pasta sauce and hot wings, these pages don’t come packed with gorgeous food photography and 20-minute recipes.

What is it, then?

It’s for women in college and their twenties. It’s for people who feel too much but need to know that’s okay, that they’ll get through this. It’s for anyone who ever wanted to look on the bright side of this life and see it, really see the rays of sunlight peaking through some Sunday story. It’s for diving deep into the nitty gritty tough stuff nobody dares code into their HTML <body> tags.

On here, my life is a playground. I don’t tell you anything you wouldn’t care about, but I’m entirely honest about the things I’ve been through and the things I’ve put myself through.

You’ll find posts about getting kicked when you’re down and learning how to live with a little more purpose than you thought possible.

I’ve been told by dozens of strangers, relatives, and friends that this blog is therapeutic and sees a goodness often pushed to the recesses of our minds. Let’s find that goodness, shall we?

If you need an email inbox to sit inside for a while and just think, mine is always open: kaleighsomers@gmail.com.

    Hey Kaleigh!

    How are you? It is Christina Ellis, from high school? It has been years since I have seen you. I stumbled upon your blog today and I must say some of your entries brought tears to my eyes. I never knew you were a writer, if I did I would have started reading your entries years ago. Your words are beautiful. I wish you all the best of luck in your future! I expect to be reading books of yours very soon 🙂

  14. i will now have to check out sarah dessen. her name is sprinkled everywhere on your blog – and given the way you write – you know a thing or two about good books. 🙂

  15. She’s the kind of author you get hooked on. Trust me, it won’t let you down.

  19. Aw you are too sweet. Can we be friends? I am in need of some people in my life who understand me. I’m still trying to figure out myself.

  20. Glad Kellie’s blog got you here. She’s a sweetheart! I’ll check yours out as well.

  21. It’s so great to find someone who share’s my philosophy on writing: “I write because I feel like God’s filling me up with all these mini life lessons and insights and I’d be a fool not to share them.”
    Really enjoying reading your posts. Keep up the awesome work/play!

For this reason, I am nominating you for the Liebster Blog Award. The award is given to a blog with less than 200 followers that deserves a little more recognition. There are a few simple rules that go along with the award. They are as follows as passed on to me.

    1. Give a shout out to the blogger who nominated you by linking back to their blog.
    2. Nominate 5 other blogs with less than 200 followers.
    3. Spread the good blog karma.
    Lastly, don’t forget to add the Liebster blog award image to your post.

    Best wishes.

  23. I agree with Mikael, it’s like I’ve always known you. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  33. Hi! Writing like yours makes me jump up and down!
    My story? I’m a Canadian poet trying to make people unintimidated by poetry. I’d like them to tape my poems to their fridge one day. I am trying to live fearlessly lately, because I’ve lost too many good friends too soon, and realize I don’t know how long I have here either. I suppose more of my story is at http://heathergracestewart.me Carry On Dancing!
