The Death of Google Reader

Since the main reader I was using has passed on... I've been on the hunt for something I actually like to replace it. I've seen quite a few folks using Bloglovin, so I'm gonna give it a shot. First step is to "claim" my blog. This is just an attempt to do that. Wish me luck.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Update: I think it worked. :) Check out my new button over in the right-side bar.

Welcome Back

Did you miss me?

I do suppose that disappearing  just after you begin such an elaborate undertaking as a blog, is really bad form. My apologies! I keep telling myself not to fret over it too much since I don't really have many followers yet, and it's surely must be better to get over the hiccups early on. Regardless, I don't think I know a single soul that likes to hear excuses... but... Want to hear about all of the cool things I've been busy doing while I was not keeping up with my blog like I ought to have? *sheepish grin*

Oh great! Glad to hear it! And by the way... Welcome back!

Please Mr. Postman

It has taken me a while to get this post together to share with you. It's not so much that the world of shipping has set me behind schedule, but more that my schedule wasn't aware I had intended to post sooner. lol.

So, I'm not certain that anyone out there doesn't already know this stuff... but I didn't. Having never tried to ship anything from home, I had no idea what would be involved. This is what I learned.

Freedom Box

It's getting closer and closer to the day my daughter will be heading off to college. Her dad and I will be worried about her, of course, but I ought to admit... we are also pretty excited about being empty-nesters!

One thing I plan on doing is creating a Freedom Box for her.
Surely, things would vary greatly depending on the particular child's situation (college, first apartment, marriage, military), but the point is to have something collected for them that will be a help, and maybe even remind them how much they are loved.

Blogs About Blogging

Do you ever have one of those days...

I just found a whole gaggle of blog posts that focus on tips, hints, advice, etc regarding blogging. So... you know I had to dive right in and start seeing what stuff I was missing. Half of a pack of Post-it notes later I took a breath and looked up at the 40 or so open tabs. I just clicked the big red X in the corner and freed myself from the whole mess for a few, much needed, minutes of no data input. I went and stood on the back porch in the freezing cold (there's still a tad bit of yesterday's snow on the ground), and watched my chickens scurry over hoping I had brought something out for them.
