Sometimes you can’t see what is right in front of you but when you finally open your eyes you’ll wonder why you didn’t see it sooner. ~cracked heart
For those of you who aren’t aware, it will be five years ago this coming June that I’ve been blogging on The Red Painted Cottage. It’s harder than you realize to come up with a good name, but after all, we do have a red painted log cabin. So that’s how this name came about. I started blogging more for the art journey I was one; but next thing I knew I was writing about our travels, adventures, DIY projects, decorating, recipes, and Miss Molly.
This is a snapshot I took, from a printout, of my old blog design. I had been on Blogspot, which I really loved, but there were so many more options I wanted in my blog that I couldn’t get with Blogspot. So this past summer I switched to a different blog format, WordPress, which some of you have heard of. It was also a great time to change the look of my blog and to concentrate on being a home and garden blogger versus art.
I still love to paint and will continue with my watercolors in my spare time, but I’m currently enjoying everything that comes with moving into a new house and making it our home.
So whenever I can, I’ve been doing more and more with my new blog that you probably haven’t noticed. I’ve slowly been adding the printouts for the recipes on this blog, and trying to get the right blogs into their proper categories. I also added some of the blogs I love to follow, under the Featured/Link Parties heading. And speaking of featured, I’m thrilled with all the parties I’ve been featured in since August. It reinforces that this is where I belong with my blogging.
I’ve still got some work to do with some of the older postings and with some of their photos, but most of the important changes have taken place. So when you have some spare time, I’d love for you to explore my new blog; and get inspired along the way. Just a bit of evolution with my blog…
