Starting Over

As some of you probably know by now, I deleted my old blog last week. As you can plainly see, I've opened a new one. I kind of knew I would.. I just didn't know how soon.

I'm going to do things differently this time. I'm not going to be widget-happy. (Quit clapping. I know who you are. Ok, I don't.) I'm not going to be so overly concerned with hits and joining everything under the sun to get some exposure for my blog. The word of the day is "SIMPLIFY." Hopefully my blog AND my life.

I will resume posting "Quickies" and "Caption" stuff and everything else I used to do. It's the same old Skittles.. don't worry!

I lost all your blog links except for a few. I'll try to pick up the rest as I go along. Be patient with me is all I ask.

Pssst. I have my own domain now! (Happy Dance.)

Hi! At first, I was not able to view your new blog, then I thought, oh it could be what she was talking about last week...Congratulations!
I am happy that you thought of just simplyfying and not finally saying goodbye.

Well I'm a newer reader anyway, but I hear what you're saying. When I stopped worrying that I wasn't getting enough hits, then I began to blog the real me. Congrats on the nice site.

The Curmudgeon said...

You had -- what? 85,000? 87,000? -- a lot more hits on the old blog that I've had and you started yours well after I started mine.

So that was something.

It just wasn't an end in itself for you, and that's all good.

Congratulations on the new venture.

LadyBanana said...

I am so glad that you are back!

Sandy M said...

So so glad you're back. I deleted mine last year and stayed gone about two weeks. It made me crazy and I had to come back. The great thing about blogging is you can always do it your way!
