About the Blog

hellotherenew…and welcome to my blog! Here you’ll find a wide range of content including life updates, rants, tags, and everything in between!

Here’s the (short) history of my blog.

September 2016

“Rebecca’s Thoughts” was launched on Blogger. The “tagline” was Thoughts, ideas, inspiration, Bible verses, and much more! This was my first official blog, and I posted on it for about a month.

October 2016

This is when I found out about Wix. The design aspect of it made me want to switch immediately, and so I did on the 23rd. The template I used had the name “Amazing Adventures”; which I thought was pretty cool. It kind-of stuck.

A few months later

I blogged on my Wix site for quite a while (about 7 months), and then a little while later decided to re-design the look.

May 2017

About two months after I re-designed the look of my blog, I was “re-introduced” to WordPress. I had heard about it before, but never really explored it. I decided to switch to a WordPress site, and with the help of Megan for design, I launched my blog again!

July 2017

The name I “chose” in October of 2016 wasn’t really working for me anymore. It didn’t seem to be fitting, either. I thought over new name ideas, and after a while, I settled on “Joy Unspeakable”.

The words mean:

Joy noun \ˈjȯi\ the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying

Unspeakable adjective \ˌən-ˈspē-kə-bəl\ incapable of being expressed in words

Together, the phrase means: “Great delight and happiness incapable of being expressed with words”. Basically, inexpressible happiness.

Why the name? Because knowing that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the price for my sins makes me inexpressibly happy, and that’s what I want to portray through my blog.
