That's right...I've moved to a new "home."
After much contemplating, and considering staying here and just remodeling, I decided to just start fresh in a brand new home.
This blog will remain, but I'll no longer be posting here.
If you'd like to visit me in my new location, come see me at Jennifer's Little Corner.
It's not all spiffed up yet, actually, it has a lot of work to be done to make it mine, but you can visit anyway!
Hope to see you there!

I purchased domain names a few years ago, and renewed them each time I was supposed to. But something happened in early 2013 when Google decided to make some changes. I had free web hosting through them, and from what I understood, since I was already established with them, I would be able to continue the free blog hosting.
But something went wrong. Sometimes they throw a lot of stuff out there that is very confusing, and I apparently missed something. But all of a sudden, my blogs were all distorted and I couldn't do anything about it! And then they seemed to vanish...I couldn't access them by typing in the address. I was VERY frustrated! And sad! (Especially about my personal blog...so many stories and pictures!)
I decided that somehow, the blogs must still be able to be accessed. They HAD to be! Obviously, my domain name was outdated, so I managed to take care of that. I renewed it with no problem. But then what?
I did figure out that the reason my blogs weren't accessible, is because I had them redirected to my domain name. So I fixed that, and they are BACK, but in blogger. With the doggone blogspot.com on the end! Oh, and this one doesn't even have my actual blog name in the URL because it's still the same from WAY back when I first began and didn't know what to call my blog, and really didn't but any thought into it. Now, I have no idea if my "old" friends can see the updates since the address is different. Guess I'll find out!
So, I repurchased my domain name for my business blog, but haven't for this one yet. For two reasons: one, because I still haven't figured out how to get it set back up to work with the domain name. And two, because, I'm really trying to decide if I want to keep this blog going, as in continue posting on it.
I was a TERRIBLE blogger the past few years (almost non-existent). But now I'm finally missing blogging and think I might be a little more frequent at posting. But I don't know if this blog "fits" me anymore.
I know I'm still a night-owl deep inside, but my life now doesn't really let me be one. I've considered either starting a whole new blog, or changing the name of this one. I'm not sure. I'm thinking about the name "Jennifer's Little Corner." I actually went ahead and secured a blog with that name before I managed to get this one to work again. That name would be more "me," because I don't blog about one particular thing, but about all facets of my life. And no matter what I end up blogging about, it would still fit.
So I'm now trying to decide what I really want to do. Decisions, decisions. Guess even I will have to wait to see what happens!
