Don't Panic!! I'm Still Here!!

Note to self... before making DRASTIC changes to my blog and blog address, I should probably give some warning before I do so.

Geez Louise, it's been a scary morning.

I made the decision to completely give the blog a make-over... not so much to the layout, cause I really like the color scheme, but to everything else.  New blog title.  New blog description.  And the part that almost killed me - new blog address.

Just an FYI - before you think about changing your blog address, you might want to do so AFTER you've given all of your blog followers some warning.  You won't believe the trouble I went through after I realized I changed everything...and none of my followers would be able to find me.  I actually deleted my old blog address.  Can you believe that?  I don't know what I was thinking.  I know better than to delete a web address  before redirecting traffic to the new one.  Thankfully, with some assistance from Hubby, I was able to get my old blog address back in order to post a notice on where to find me now.

So, now that's all out of the way... what do you think?

After a lot of thinking, considering all the feedback I've received, and putting my life in to perspective, I decided that this blog format is the best for my current life situation.  No matter what I want to blog about, it all fits nicely in to the scheme of things.

You'll notice I didn't really give up anything to do this.  I can talk about teaching.  I can talk about the kids.  I can talk about my weight loss woes.  Without feeling a drop of guilt or worry that I'm not blogging about what I'm supposed to be blogging about.  Which I know is really a ridiculous feeling to have - I mean, it is my blog after all.

But, the truth of the matter is, I'm not a weight loss blogger any more.  I'm just a blogger.  Someone who loves to write, share her life.  If I lose followers, so be it.  This isn't a popularity contest.  I don't write in order to lure people in to reading what I have to say.  They either like it or they don't. 

I just can't restrict myself anymore. 

So, here you go.  My new blog.  My new theme.  I sure hope you'll stick around. 



  1. Love the name! When I picked a name for my blog, besides for obvious reasons, I liked it because it wasn't focused on one thing. Not diet or weight loss or food or whatever. I love that. I'll update you on my blog roll. :)

  2. I did the same thing with coming up with my blog's name. I didn't think I'd 'evolve' as quickly as I did but I am glad I planned ahead for it.

    And, by the way, I like your blog because of the assortment of topics you have. :D


Tell me what's on your mind - I love to hear from you!
