I’m really trying…..

I have worked hard on getting the blog the way you enjoy it without too much “clutter”……

 Dan Pierce from Single Dad Laughing took time from releasing his new book and operating his HEE-UGE blog to help design mine.

I think he did a right fine job!

I wanted it simple…..he kept it simple.

But this is where I came in.

I meddled….and plundered…..and tried to help.

I deleted comments…..re-posted old post on accident and created about 747 Facebooks.

He asked for me to stop helping.

What was that about?

So…..those of you that “liked” the facebook yesterday…..I deleted you. Sorry!

I hope this blog stays simple….because I’m simple.

You will see a little house on top of the blog…… it is right under the “you” and in the blue bar…..

That will always take you back to today’s post.

But roam through the others….the little hangy things….are called pages. You probably knew that.

I didn’t.

I’m trying to tag every post that I have done under one of the page categories to make it easier to read the old stuff.

Here’s how it works:

 The home stuff button……well, that will have anything I post about decor……crafty…..home stuff……

Crazy how I came up with that complicated title isn’t it?

Family life….post about family stuff……they will go under family life……

I know….complicated.

Deals and steals…….that’s where my yard sale posts…..deals and steals will land after I post them…..there they are…..get it?

Because it is true series and any other “sappy” or “heartfelt” posts…….under inspiration.

You can always search for a title under dates on the right…..or in the search section.

This is the important part though……

Subscribe someway.

Follow me somehow…….

Share it somehow.

I told you that I wasn’t going to do the “follower” section………Dan agreed………it didn’t really serve a purpose.

Plus, I feel like I am using you all to make my blog look “bigger”…..I know, it doesn’t make sense….but it’s how I feel.

I just don’t want that to be the focus.

There are all kinds of ways to subscribe now.

The biggest thing is building my facebook apparenlty……so…..please spread the word.

Pick your favorite post…..and share it on facebook…or email it to someone…..pretty please.

Your fun friends….not your catty ones ; )

I can’t wait to meet everyone!

I am not doing ads…..not trying to make money……..just wanting it to grow and for us all to make new friends and create a fun place for us all to “land”.

Now, here is where I need your help.

Dan had to delete about 747 facebook pages I accidentally set up.

So hopefully you can like…..follow or whatever you do now and you won’t disappear.

Let me know what you think about all aspects of the blog.

I believe we nailed it pretty good…..mainly because it’s just plain simple.

Ya’ll have been so much fun to meet and hang with……

I want it easy for you to stick around.

Check out Single Dad Laughing….also subscribe by email to his blog called…..

He writes in easy to understand post about how his blog grew to over 65,000 followers in a years time.

His post are humorous…….enjoyable and educational.

Hope you all like the new design.

Let’s get this party started!

I’m ready to get cracking on some projects that I have been hiding away!

I can’t wait to show you!

Oh…..one other question. I’m thinking about starting a linky party.

I loved how they helped my blog grow and I LOVE seeing everyones neat stuff.

What are your guys thoughts?

Afraid I will get away from just fun posts?

I don’t intend to……regretfully……my life happens to be quirky and you guys listen to me talk about it….

So you’re stuck.

But about the linky party…..I would love your thoughts.

Let me know what you think and if you find the new design easy or confusing!

    I love it!  I like simple too and it looks great.  I’m not very up on blogging but I think the linky party sounds like a good idea.  You have inspired me to get busy so keep showing us what you’re up to.  🙂

    Looks great Hon. I just subscribed to Facebook and Twitter so I can follow you all the more. Not that it’s like stalking or anything. Okay, maybe kind of. Oh and don’t feel bad about making mistakes with all the social network crap. I do it all the time and frustrate my friends and family to no end. It’s kind of fun actually!
