I just realized that I've forgotten to update most of my blog followers that I've been playing with a new location for my blog!
This past year, I've been dealing with a lot of spam on my Blogger site (where you're at right now!) I have had to constantly review comments for my blog that didn't have anything to do with what I've been writing about. It was time consuming and created a lot of maintenance work for me in the background. For my blog, I've always wanted a good blend of sharing on my end, but also wanted to make it easy for my blog readers to comment on my stories without getting a bunch of junk for solicitors or spammers. A blog, after all, is a community -- it shouldn't be just me forcing my life on you without you being able to tell me how obnoxious I am.
I've dabbled with WordPress over the past six months or so and am finding it decent so far. I believe I've managed to export all of my old blog and move it with me to our new site so our archives have moved with me!
In comparing my iPhoto albums to my blog over the past year, I'm realizing I've missed some important events on the blog that I'd like to try to catch up on. I'll still keep posting events from the past so our family story doesn't have gaps when we look at it later. If you follow me on Facebook, my new blog will update my Facebook feed with a notice every time I post something new so you won't miss out on the fun!
Come check out my new digs!
