New WebSite Coming Soon!

I started this blog years ago.  I don't even know when exactly, but you can check the long list of archives if the curiosity is just too much for you to handle.  (Yes, that archive list is annoying long, I know!)  It's a Blogger blog, but it's sort of disguised behind the template of this website.

But because of an email I received from Blogger months ago, I know that I'm going to have to change the way I do things.  (I don't quite understand it, I just know I have to change how it's set up.)  At first, the thought of that was scary and intimidating.  But the more I thought about it, the more I realized I sorta wanted some stuff to change around here anyway.

I have a friend who set up my blog years ago, and has helped me maintain it throughout all this time.  I've loved my little website.  But since I don't know HTML code or really anything about setting up a website that way, anytime I've wanted things moved around, or added, or deleted, I've had to bother her about it.

If I had my way, I'd change up the way my website looks often.  At least yearly.  Maybe seasonally.  Or oh my gosh, maybe daily!  I get bored with things pretty quickly, and I'd like to offer something new to visitors often so they want to keep coming back!  But unless I'm able to do it myself, that's a little ridiculous. 

Anyway, I've found a way to make my website, without having to use HTML.  I hope to save this blog and put it in an archive- If I lost it, it'd be like throwing out years worth of diaries.  I think the website address will stay the same.  But it's going to look different.  In fact, my main page will be my blog!  Which feels very right and makes so much sense to me.  I love writing in this blog, and my aim is to grow my readership and connect more with the good people out there in the blogosphere.

The best thing about my new website, is that I'll be able to make changes to it, all by myself, whenever I want.  That's my hope, anyway.

My days of posting this way are numbered.  The switch will be made by May 1st.  YIKES.

I know what you mean when you say, "... it'd be like throwing out years worth of diaries."

I have one that I would hate to lose, too.

A while back I thought it would be really cool if I could turn my blog into a book. Well, apparently so did someone else because they started a service where you can make that happen.

I haven't used it yet but I hope to soon.

You can find the website here:
