Hello! Today is the big day, and I am so excited! I have spent a lot of hours updating my website, giving her a pretty new look, and reorganizing her snazzy features. Plus, I’ve been making plans for all kinds of new posts to bring you over the coming weeks! Today I want to kick things off and show you around. Let’s get going!
To begin with, for those of you that have been regular visitors for a while and managed to stick around through my year-long hiatus, you will probably notice a drastic shift in my website decor. It feels like a breath of fresh air to my eyes, and I hope you like it too.
Next, check out the new exciting sidebar items on the right. I will be showcasing these in depth over the course of this week, but here is a brief overview. At the top is a link to my online store where you can purchase a copy of my CD. Next you will notice three index buttons…a recipe index, a crafting index, and an index of fun tidbits. There are also three info pages…info about me personally, info about how to book me, and info on how to contact me. Lastly, there is a place where you can become an email subscriber. If you subscribe you will receive a little note from me in your inbox whenever I post something new. Never will I ever share or sell your information. Promise.
Finally, all my posts are now going to fall into one of five categories. The new categories are:
If you look at the menu bar at the top of the page, you will see each of these categories listed. If you click on a category, it will bring up all the posts from that category. As a way to introduce and explain each category, I will be doing a post each day this week in each category.
Today’s post is from the WRITING category. See, this is me writing. Words words words. More words words words.
Posts in the writing category will include things like sharing parts of my life story, communicating updates (like today), and a new series I will begin in the coming weeks called “Things I Want My Daughters To Know.”
As a part of today’s writing post, I do have important words to share with you that have nothing to do with new categories or sidebar buttons.
The whole reason I have been able to devote time to revamping my website and am able to recommit my life to blogging is because I am no longer officially employed. You can read more about my previous job here if you are interested. And if you know me even a little bit, you know this change has been very unexpected, and awfully sad. I am not going to post details about the back story that led up to this change, but I will answer questions as best I can if you have them (via the “Contact Me” button!).
Those are my words today. I am ready to move forward. New website. New chapter. New beginnings.
I hope you stick around to check out the other posts this week to get a taste of what’s to come. I’m happy to have you along for the ride! Here we go…
