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.
Hey you crazy kids, I’m unplugging for a few days. Not by choice, it’s just that I’m going to be someplace where there really isn’t any internet. Or it’s there but you have to go looking for it. I dunno how those people live there. And have I mentioned, really no cell service either? It’s like the freakin’ 1950s where I’ll be. There are drive-ins and carhops and jukeboxes and “rebels” in leather jackets and girls in poodle skirts, and party lines and cars with fins and…
And when I say “not by choice,” it’s very much my choice to be going where I’ll be. I just wish I could plug in the laptop and connect to the internet. Although a break is probably a good thing. Right?
For both of us.
Anyway. Don’t forget about me, OK? Check back next weekend and I should have updates and stories and fresh blog fodder.
Because stale blog fodder will make you sick.
