31 Days to a Better Blog: Day 1

Jul 01

This month I’m participating in 31 Days to Build a Better Blog with the people at yeah write. I’ll be posting daily (gulp!) and working to make my blog a little bit spiffier. If you’re interesting in learning more, just click on the icon below.

Day 1

For Day 1 of 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, the assignment is to write an “elevator pitch” which is what you tell people when they ask what your blog is about. I have a quickie version that goes like this:

Hi! I’m Elizabeth Lee, and my blog is called The New Elizabeth. I write about the changes in my life after the end of a long-term marriage. I’m reinventing midlife.

My tagline is “Reinventing Midlife” doncha’ know.

I’m also creating a longer version:

I’m Elizabeth Lee. Formerly a homeschooling mommy, I kicked my husband out of the house after 25 years of marriage but kept the the kids. I have five young adult children who are the joy of my life.


Most of the time.


Since getting divorced, I’ve embarked on a new, happier life. I am an amateur actor and photographer, and love books, music, & wine. I’m gluten intolerant and addicted to coffee. Like many people my age I’m still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I write about my life and my journey while I’m reinventing midlife.

  1. Stopping by from YeahWrite 31dbbb.

    Interesting. It speaks to a certain audience (other midlife adults who are remaking their life). Good job.

  2. While I really like both pitches the 2nd one grabbed my attention a little more; it made me giggle,let me know what your blogs about, and had me wanting to come back for more. Oh, and love the tagline 🙂

  3. I’m still figuring out who I wanna be when I grow up, too, so this (and the ending of a long-term marriage — mine’s ending after 17 years and 4 kids) makes me feel a kindred spirit. Yay!

  4. The second, longer pitch has more spunk. 🙂
