Reunited, and it feels so good!

Well, as I said, changes are a-happening here!   I did tell you nine months ago, I was delving into the unknown and taking my love to WordPress, which was a HUGE learning curve for me.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s the best thing since sliced bread for some folk, but for me……naaaaaah!   Like any relationship, leaving is the easy bit,………the grass may be greener, but for me, it was definitely twice as hard to mow!

I tried and I tried and I succeeded in some parts, but it just didn’t ever come easily to me and my blog became my nightmare that I started to dread instead of look forward to…….’'
so like I said back HERE, it was only a trial separation…..but I discovered my true love was meant to be with Blogger!

I don’t feel defeated and I definitely don’t feel like a failure……after all, I’ll never regret not giving it a go…..but it just wasn’t for me!    Maybe because my heart and head was still with Blogger, maybe I’m just not meant to WP, but I gave it my best shot, a full year, and then decided I had to reunite with my first love before I lost him forever!

Only trouble is…..it’s not as easy moving back as it was leaving!!!!! hmmmmmm, no-one ever told me that before (but isn’t that what happens in any relationship?)

So I've employed a wonderful liaison/mediator (techy-man)  to sort things out between us, and things are getting there…..slowly……there’s much rebuilding to be done and it’s all gently, gently for the moment, but I’m sure it won’t be too long before our hearts are strongly bonded again.

You’ll notice that my blog posts are missing from last year…..they have to be manually moved over, so that will take some time……the removalist has been organised and it’s just fitting it into the schedule.

You will notice some changes over the next little while…..new sidebars, new headers, new styles……but the good old comfy slippers are on again….I’m back home!
My address is still www.sugarlane-designs.com, so feel free to add me to your reading lists or sidebars so you can come visit often.  Don’t feel like the relationship has been severed and you have to choose sides…..we’re all friends again, Blogger, WordPress and me,  I promise!

It’s just so nice to be home......we're reunited, and it feels so good!  Watch this space tomorrow for FNSI sign ups…..yep, it’s that time again!  Lock it in, Eddy!

Hope all goes well with the move Wendy - like all moves it sounds traumatic but it sounds like you have a great removal man. xx

You sure have a gift with words and pictures :)! Good Luck with your 'move'. If it weren't for my son helping me, I wouldn't even be where I am now with the computer. Computers somehow speak and think in a totally different language than myself ;)!

I left the old blogger addy on my reading list, so you have always been with me in both worlds <3
