February. Dull, gray, lifeless. It’s the time of year I always say to my hair stylist “I think I want to add a swatch of wild color across the top of my hair.”
“That’s just winter talking,” she responds. It’s become a February ritual.
So instead of that, I’ve decided to have a facelift. Well, at least a facelift to my website, and I’ve switched from one blogging platform to another. Why? I want to make it easier for people to read on any device they use, I want readers to be able to subscribe more easily, and I want the process of commenting to be rather fluid and less cumbersome because I love hearing from you! And did I mention the address is easier to remember – mypatchworkjourney.com. It’s that simple.
Take a minute to check it out. You’ll see I’ve added a new page that focuses on quilting and another that has links that lead directly to some of my favorite travel posts. And who knows, I may place travel tips, tools and resources there as well. Both of these sections are truly works in progress, so please, check back occasionally.
I’ve also added a list of my favorite blogs and I encourage you to check them out (but come back to mine!). And there’s a new search feature so if you want to find a previous post, just enter the topic, and it will direct you there.
I hope you like the new look, though it’s vastly different from the previous blog site. And more importantly, I hope you’ll stay with me as I continue this blogging fun, and expand my website to include other features as well. This spring, I’ll be venturing into some spots of this country that are new to me and can’t wait to take you with.
All in all, I’m really excited. There’s a cost to all change. In this case, it was more than a new color, but a whole heck of a lot cheaper than a real facelift. Now about my hair…
P.S. If you’re not a subscriber, I hope you’ll consider it – it means every time I add a new post (once a week or so), a message will arrive in your email box with a link to the blog. Nothing more, no ads, no spam. Just good ol’ me. And if you are viewing this on a phone or tablet, you’ll need to scroll to the bottom to find the subscription box.
