Come on over to http://soupisnotafingerfood.typepad.com and read my latest post, wherein I attempt to reconcile the preschool’s “Book Fair” as a marketing ploy to seduce young children into begging their parents to part with their hard-earned cash, with my own love of books, especially new ones.
Over at my new digs, I wrote today about how we have, like, no new furniture in our house. Almost everything we use now was either given to us for free or purchased second-hand. Am I just cheap, or green, or maybe more sentimental than anything? Perhaps some combination thereof? You be the judge.
Y’all. I’ve been feeling lately that I’m getting a bit, um, stale when it comes to this blog. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not finding good material to write about, or if I’m bored with the layout. WordPress-hosted blogs are a bit limiting – sure, it’s free, but all the cool kids have fun blog bling, like nifty badges, audio widgets and flexible layouts, that I can’t use here.
Switching to the WordPress software and hosting it elsewhere seemed too complicated for me. But I think I’ve come upon a solution: Typepad.
I’ve started a blog over there, and here’s my first entry. I’m still messing around with formatting, just trying it on for size, tinkering here and there. I don’t plan on migrating everything that’s here over there, but eventually, if I end up liking it, I’ll map my main URL to that blog. Till then, and beyond, this blog stays, and I’ll post links here for a few weeks of the posts I put up over there.
I would very much appreciate your feedback – hop over to the new site and tell me what you think. Is it readable? Easily navigated? Entirely offensive? Keep it real, I can take it. But I won’t know unless you tell me.
I truly appreciate everyone who comes to read my random musings, more than you know. I want to make sure it’s still engaging to you, but if it isn’t engaging to me, that’s kind of a showstopper. You know what they say – if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
