Spring Cleaning

It’s time for spring cleaning already and that means it’s time to seriously blow the dust off this blog! Firstly, I do want to apologize to the readers/visitors of my site here. It’s hard for me to believe that it’s really been since the end of January that I posted anything at all on here. I have been on my Facebook and Twitter pages, but those don’t exactly update my blog as I would like to. For a couple months there I was battling some major laptop issues that seemed never ending. I could easily disclose the brand name and I’m sure many who read this would nod and go, “Yep, that’s why there are issues!” – however, I’m not trying to start wars or get myself into any sort of trouble here by venting my frustrations with a certain computer company that starts with a D. Plus, thanks to my friend Cuddle Monkey (oh yes, using nicknames on here) my laptop has been re-down twice in the past couple months and finally seems to be on the working path yet again. So I do believe it’s safe to say I am back and shall be producing blog entries at a much better pace.

Now I’ll admit, I’ve been up and running for roughly a couple weeks now at least again. My laptop has yet (knock on wood) to give me grief again. Part of my reason for holding back on jumping right into the blog again though, is I have been debating switching to a different server. My main reason for my want is because the comments here on Blogger drive me crazy. I couldn’t reply directly to comments made in response to entries and that alone had me a little batty. I like the threading format when it comes to blogs and I really like and want to be able to respond directly to anyone who comments my blog. A huge thank you goes out to my friend Melly Belly (yep, sticking with nicknames) for finding the solution! Blogger does indeed allow the threading commenting format. It was just a matter of messing further with the settings. So from now on if you comment one of my posts, I will be able to directly respond to you! This probably excites me more than it should, but I fully admit I’m giddy about this fixture on the site.

More fixes around my site can be expected in the near future. I plan to add an ‘about me’ section. At least once I can figure out how I want to set it up, LOL! I also was thinking of adding a section where I can share what I’ve read this year thus far and what I’m currently reading with a few thoughts to each book. I’m also planning to get some new pictures taken so I can update the imagery of myself here on my blog, Facebook and Twitter. I may tweak around with a few more things in due time of course, but for now those are the big blog changes that can be expected to happen in the near future. In the meantime though, while I work on the aforementioned I’ll also try not to allow this blog to get so dusty again. So here’s hoping my laptop is done giving me grief and I will be able to post on it sooner then later! LOL!

--XOXO, Jane


  1. Sounds like you are polishing up your blog for spring too! That is what I have been trying to do all week. I'll be back to see how you did.

    1. That I am! It might take me a little while to get it all polished the way I like it, but it is definitely a work in progress. :)
