Blog Spring Cleaning and Birthdays

My 29th birthday is coming up in two days. I had almost forgotten. 29 is not exactly a banner year. Next year perhaps I will do something grand, but this year Papa Bear and I may just go out to dinner.

Natalie's 1st Birthday

I feel about my 29th birthday the way I seem to have felt about my 1st. Meh.

The clock rolling over has gotten me thinking, what do I want to do with this next year? Well, I will be done with school and working full time again (both at the barbershop and on the blog) in June, leetle seester will be getting married in July, I will be getting married in August, Baby Bear will be getting a little brother or sister (not from me!) in November, and I will be doing my best to grow this blog to a point where Papa Bear and I can give her another one and I can take some maternity leave when that happens.

Hopefully there will be a honeymoon in there somewhere. There is a bit more to The Master Plan, but this blog is here for the long haul, partly because I absolutely love doing this and connecting with all of these people that are just as strange as I am, and partly because I know that this is the way I can be most useful and fulfilled in my life. This is it.

Mad Scientist at Work…

I have just gotten myself a shiny new theme or two from Brian Gardner over at Studiopress and am working on figuring things out. Things might be a little under construction through the weekend, so please bear with me. Learning ahoy!

Welcome to My New Home

Welcome to the new home of Leave Me to My Projects, on my very own, hosted, registered domain, for real blog.

I am in the process of transferring over the old to the new site here, but I imagine it might take a little time, so I will be officially relaunching LMTMP on February 2nd, 2012.

In the meantime, you can still find me on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter or Pinterest.

There are so many wonderful things coming, you wouldn’t want to miss all the goodness, now would you?

Big Changes

Well everyone, I did it. I switched to WordPress. I have had quite enough of spending the majority of my limited blogging time monkeying around with formatting and fighting Blogger. It has been fantastic for getting my feet wet and I quite enjoyed it here for a time.

But this is not the end, it is the beginning! I will be working on the full transfer to my new, very own, hosted, registered domain, for real blog. I’m going pro.

I have decided to be like the groundhog. Until February 2nd, 2012 (my dad’s birthday, coincidentally) I am going to hibernate, plan, execute, and get this thing off the ground. I will still be posting to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest in the meantime, with occasional updates on the progress on here.

Thanks for sticking with me!

I am such a slacker

I have come to a decision, at least for the time being, to take weekends off. Not really off, exactly, I am in the service industry, so I still labor laboriously on the weekends, but I think it would be a good idea to take the weekends off from blogging, at least until I’m done with school.

Not only will I still be working at a real job on the weekends, in every spare moment you can be sure I will be writing, cooking, scrapbooking, taking pictures, knitting, coding, layout, illustration, and everything else that I hope you have been enjoying here at LMTMP.

My hope is that this will allow me to get some more of the Feature section pages finished and perhaps complete some of the 80-something anchor posts I have half done.

I also love to cater to my readers. So let me hear you! Which features are your favorites, and which would you like to see more of? Leave a note below and let me know.
