New Site. New Blog. New Girl.

Yep, I’m back.  And pretty much everything is different.  Of course you might have noticed that. ;) I honestly didn’t expect to be gone for more than a year.  I guess I should have taken a glance at the date and realized something would go wrong. (Fri 13th)

The just world changed and I had to change with it.  It’s not a bad thing, but it does take time to catch on.  Well, it took me time to catch on.

-When last this blog was running full-steam ahead I was helping manage a (very) small business out of my house, marketing my book in between, and reading stacks of books by night while sipping a mug of mocha.

-Now, I’m a customer service rep for a local financial company who readers her Kindle on lunch hours, kick-boxes on the weekends, and ends each day with one cup of mocha.

…What, you didn’t actually think I was going to give up cappuccino, did you? :)

But I think it’s about time I came back.  I can feel it. Can’t you?…Hm, well, maybe that was just the air conditioning.  Either way, I decided if I was going to come back I wanted to change my format.  So, I left behind Blogger, redesigned my website, and merged the two.  Everything from the design to the format to the About Me page has been changed. (WordPress, people.  I’ll let you know if it works out.)

From what I can tell, WP doesn’t have the same following system as Blogger, but it does have a subscribe feature!  We can work with that, right?  You can also follow the blog through Face Book or by clicking follow on the Network Blog box on the left.

Anyway, that’s where I’ve been, how about you? :)

Btw, I was totally serious about the kick-boxing thing.  I’m like practically Chuck Norris…well, if you go easy on me. ;)

    1. Hey, Warren. Thanks! I’ve been setting up a few things to market my book, including an online book signing next week! I’ll send you a link as soon as the event is ready to publish. :) Hope your marketing is going well too!
      Good to hear from you.

  1. Emily – It’s Great to have you back! I missed your insightful, wonderful posts. And kickboxing! Wow! That sounds awesome! Now, I think I understand your picture a little more from a few weeks back on facebook with the gloves and the tiara.

    I tried WordPress for two weeks when I started blogging, and then decided on Blogger . . . can’t say one is better than the other, but Blogger seemed to suit me more comfortably. WordPress definitely has some cool features, and it’s the platform my husband prefers. So, keep me updated on your WordPress vs. Blogger thoughts. I would love to hear them.

    1. Thanks, Tyrean. I will say, Blogger is easier to use, but I’ve been told WP googles a bit better so that’s one reason I decided to switch. I’ll see how easy it is to navigate from here on out. ;) Looking forward to talking to you again. :)
