waving

I'm waving to all my LiveJournal friends. I haven't posted in ages for a variety of reasons that I won't bore you all with now. But I did want to update a few things since I am cleaning up around LJ.

First off, if you view my LJ in its own setting it might look a little wonky as I've been moving web hosts and forgot that I had my LJ graphics hosted on my website. I'll get those straightened up soon.

Second, I'm moving to WordPress, the transition is almost done. I know, I know, another one bites the dust. But I'm moving twice! Once for the writing blog and once for my garden/nature blog. I'll post the info here most likely next week.

Third, to prep for the migration of my old journal entries over to the new blog I'm going through and deleting some posts that were kept to a small private group. I've saved copies of them but I don't want them public if LJ should fall apart and when you import, quite often your private stuff goes public so I just want to remove that chance.

I miss LJ and connecting with all of you around our virtual water cooler, especially those I don't see over on Facebook which seems to be an easier place for me to be of late.

Hope everyone in LJ land is doing well.
There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

Goodbye ... and hello
Let me know where you're moving on WP so I can follow you there. Good luck with the move!

Re: Goodbye ... and hello
Thanks! I'll publish the WP link when things are live. Hopefully this weekend. It wouldn't import my old comments but I'm trying to let go of that.

Thanks, Patty. I'll keep LJ open and will try to pop over here to read again now that life is more ontrack.

I'll publish the WP link when things are live. Hopefully this weekend.

Melodye,
I've read that WP will import private stuff and then give it a password but to be honest, I decide to not to take that chance and just removed them. I didn't post a lot of private stuff so it was easy to clean up.

Shoot I should have said I have read it stays private and I have read that it gives a password and I decided not to take a chance.

Wishing you well, Susan! I'm not on Facebook and don't ever plan to be. Hope our paths will cross elsewhere in cyberspace. :-)

Jenn, I've been thinking of you of late and look forward to reading your blog again. I'll be blogging, just on WordPress instead of here. I've had to do some recentering of late. I know you know what I mean.

Thanks! I'll be around just this won't be home base. I have a permanent account. It's mostly frustrating when I post things and people tell me they can't access it from schools or work or LJ goes down so much.

*waves back*

I'm sorry you're leaving, but I understand. I'm probably moving soon, too. I don't do Facebook but I'll read your other blog.

I'll post the blog links here soon. There's going to be one for the writing world and one for the gardening world and such.

Oh, it's so sad everyone is pulling up stakes. I have a blog on WP, too, but don't have the community there. I will follow your WP when you publish the link and I hope we can keep in touch that way. (My comments didn't import, either, and I'm still grumpy about that!)

Tracy, I know, I feel sad about it too. The community here is wonderful but it is getting harder to deal with the tech issues. I would post things like Poetry Friday stuff and be told that people couldn't connect there from schools. And the spam and the other headaches.

I have a permanent account so I'll still try to check in here but I need to get a handle on my life (hahaha) a bit more and the headaches have outweighed the joy.

What's your WP blog? I'm trying to build a better set of blogs to follow in Google reader.

I'll post my link here when things are ready. Probably this weekend.

What?! You don't like "comments" about handbags?

And yes, HAHAHAHA regarding getting a handle on our lives. Ahem.

I'm at TracyAbell.com (which feels rather like shouting into the wilderness) but will be nicer with your in the neighborhood. :)

Oh yes. I just love handbag comments. :)

And all those ones in what I assume is Russian!

Will add you now.

Best wishes to you on your new blog. I loved "meeting" you here on LJ!

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
