I'm still here...

In my last post, I announced that this little bloggy is moving. Well, not THIS blog, but I and my writing are moving to another blog address.

It's not really a big deal but it's been a long time since I changed blog addresses. It's weird going into the new one and working on the design. It's quite over there...but it feels more like the calm before the storm than anything else.

Dramatic? Yes. But I used to blog daily. Seriously (don't laugh). I used to work at a computer repair company and I sat at a desk for 8+hours a day. During that time, all I had to do was answer the phone when it rang and do any monotonous data entry work they gave me. Other than that, my time could be spent wandering the Internet and blogging.

After I started back to school -and quit that monotonous job- my time in front of the computer became more focused on school work and less on things I enjoyed (like blogging). It was sad, but I had to let something go and blogging was that something. Well, that and visiting I Can Has Cheezburger regularly :). I've lost touch with a lot of great bloggers and that's the thing I regret most.

BUT

That's why I'm so excited about the new blog, the end of school, and the A-Z Challenge! I love a clean slate and I love the fact that after April 28th, I will no longer be a slave to 7 day a week discussion boards, PowerPoint presentations, term papers, exams, or projects that discuss the developmental stages of human beings as discovered by Erik Erikson.

And I'm hoping the A-Z Challenge will get me back in the deep end of the blogging pool. I'm ready to take the plunge. More than ready. And if you haven't signed up for the challenge yet, do it. Trust me! You'll be glad you did.

Oh, and I fixed the "follow" button at boots and bluestockings. I hope to see you there!

  4. Hey Jen! Saw your comment about her new site for the IWSG. I did you one better - I changed #54 to that name and number for you (so you wouldn't lose your position) and deleted the other entry.

Why hello! Lovely to see you. Sit down, have a cuppa, and enjoy the conversation. Feel free to join in at any time.

Oh, and no flaming unless you're a dragon. A REAL dragon. In that case, we need to talk. I do adore taking tea with dragons.

Cheers!
