Hello, dear friends in Blogland!
I just wanted to take a moment to say hello and let you know I’m not out of the blog scene just yet. As I’ve mentioned before, adjusting to the new job and the new commute has been incredibly challenging. Add in a whole slew of things going on this summer and I find I barely even have time to check Facebook once or twice a week! Much less take great outfit photos and create quality blog posts. I don’t want to squeeze blogging in at the expense of quality, so I’ve just had to take a little break while I catch my breath.
Mr. Kitty and I recently started a Google Calendar to help us keep track of all of the craziness life has been throwing at us, and to help us evaluate what we really want to be doing and what is just taking up time that could be spend in more valuable ways. I think it has given us a new perspective, and helped us see when we are not leaving enough time for ourselves. And when we are double-booking, which was starting to happen a lot because we weren’t looking at the same calendar before…
My semi-hiatus from blogging will likely continue for a few more weeks, as I have decided to finally make the switch from Blogger to WordPress! The process has been more difficult that I expected, but will be worth it in the end. WordPress offers a version that can be installed on my own server, truly giving me full control and ownership of my blog. As a professional Web designer/developer, I feel this makes the most sense for me. All of my photos will be stored on my own server, not Google’s servers, I can automate backups instead of having to remember to do so regularly, and modifying my blog design and composing posts will be faster and simpler. The bottom line is, I can have a better blog, and it will be easier to run. Best of all, I should be able to migrate my Google Friend Connect over to the new blog, so those of you who are following me should experience a seamless transition. I hope.
I am devoting some time this weekend to perusing (and commenting on) the blogs of all the dear online friends I’ve made since starting Sophistique Noir. I’ve missed reading your posts even more than I’ve missed creating posts of my own.
See you soon!
