You won’t want to miss this

14 May
I was going to save this announcement for last, but frankly I’m not sure if you all actually read my entire posts, so I want to make sure my biggest announcement is right at the top. Julie at Fabulous Blogging has been helping me upgrade my blog. Yep, very, very soon (like VERY soon) I will be found at http://anothercleanslate.com. In fact, consider this my plea to please, please, please head there now and subscribe to the feed (top right where you can input your E-mail). Feel free to add that to a tally of favors I owe you 🙂
Now, for some other news…
Dog Hair Is An Accessory

Adriana at Dog Hair is an Accessory, Carly at The Pinot Project and I are linking up!

The truth comes out when you are no longer putting your best foot forward. Some say it’s getting too comfortable, some say it’s letting yourself go. What things do you or your significant other do behind closed doors now that you have reached that next stage? Don’t let living solo stop you from sharing.  Spill the dirt on an ex or yourself!  Come air your dirty laundry with us on May 29th!

If you aren’t going to link up or don’t blog, comment and let me know what your dirty laundry is- I’ll spill it for you- anonymously if that’s what you prefer!

Also, you may have noticed a new page up there at the top of my blog.

Adriana from Dog Hair is an Accessory, Candice from Just Stay Lovely, LB from LB in Wonderland, Sarah from Limited Space Organizing and I have decided to do #piclove365. We are going to post a picture from every day over the next year.

Check out my page and make sure you see what those lovely ladies are up to as well! Let us know if you decide to join in the fun so we can follow along! And don’t forget to add #piclove365 to your instagram uploads.

I know you wanna know- why did I start blogging

7 May

I know you have all been dying to know why I started blogging. I shared a little bit in Another Clean Slate’s first post, however I thought I’d delve deeper into the topic.

Believe it or not, next week it will have been two months since I started this little adventure. I was already lurking on other blogs and I suppose I just needed a push to get my own site started. That push was actually several days/weeks/months of feeling kind of totally in a rut. I was not very happy, even though I had every reason to be happy. I was bored with work. My boyfriend started a new job and was engrossed in that. Family issues prevailed (remember my dad’s girlfriend?). My local good friends’ lives all got a lot busier. My head was spinning more than usual. Basically, I needed something new to distract me. This feeling isn’t new to me, but this time it was worse than usual.

Enter Another Clean Slate.

I’ve actually started a couple of other blogs in the past but only shared them with a handful of people. It only took a couple of weeks each time before I deactivated and deleted them. But the people I shared posts with would ask me for more. I have a lot of friends all over the place and I suppose this is a good way to keep in touch (they need to start their own blogs so I can do the same!). This time I have tried to resist the urge to deactivate and delete. Trust me, I’ve backed slowly away from the computer on more than one occasion. And my best friend has convinced me to keep this going- at least for the time being.

It’s not a very interesting story, but now you know. I was feeling blue and needed an upper. Wine wasn’t helping. Wait, booze isn’t an upper anyways, right?

Thanks for the distractions, friends!

So, why did you start?
