Explore. Dream. Discover: And Move Your Blog to WordPress

This quote seems to be appropriate as the first post on this shifted blog. Life is about taking those chances, dreaming, discovering, exploring. Making giant leaps from blogger to wordpress that mess up a million things for the non-technically-minded Mamas who like to write at 5 in the morning. Right?


As you can see, the blog is now divided into three categories: Disability, Travel and Family/Mixed Bag. All posts are going to go under one of the three, and really that’s for those of you that are more interested in one of those categories or another. Those that want to read “Disability”, why just head on over there! If you are game for trips/travel, that’s for you. And so forth.

A bunch of things have been lost/blundered. RSS subscriptions are one – I think a lot of you were subscribed under ‘Doozeedad’ and doozeedad has been laid firmly to rest. Please re-subscribe (but wait – is the widget even working yet?!)

Welcome to this new space and place. I’m awfully nervous. Like I just gave birth to a giant monkey and I’ve wrapped him up in a big fluffy blanket and I’m letting you take peaks at him.

Thanks for being kind.

  • I love it!!! Looking forward to continue reading it! Question: why the switch? I do remember yo mentioned it once, but what made you finally pull the plug?

    • I’ve been working on the switch for about 6 months now! Little by little. But it’s really because of the better security on wp as well as categories – I mean, the option of having categories as opposed to one big blob blog. Rather than have 3 blogs, I can have just one but more categories!!

I'm opinionated, friendly & chatty... I hope you are, too
