SURPRISE! Welcome to my new home…my new blog home! 🙂

For those of you who’ve been hanging around with me in the world of blogging, Facebook, Twitter…reading, liking, and commenting on my posts, I’ve kept my blog in the other “blog village” for a little over 2 years.  It was sometime October last year when I started thinking of taking this journaling of mine a bit “more seriously”.  What I meant by “more seriously” is writing more often, sharing more interesting topics to give you a better glimpse of the kind of homeschooling lifestyle our family has, engage my followers and readers more, and hopefully, just do more with the options available in this new platform.  Well, after a few months of consulting friends who know the blogosphere better and being inspired and encouraged by them, you are now in my new blog home!   It did take a while to give this space a new look and feel, but I’m glad that the “moving in” phase is over.  

Thank you, Dainty Mom, for spending a couple of hours with me at Starbucks and CBTL.  That really helped me set aside my usual thoughts and 101 everyday duties and put focus on the purpose and message of my blog.  Thank you, TheHappy Wahm / TheHappy Wahm in Facebook (who happens to be a fellow homeschooling mom and a WAHM!), for sharing with me one Sunday afternoon how WordPress looks like from the back door!  It felt like being in a Spanish foreign language tutorial, with some things a bit incomprehensible, but I really do appreciate the time you spared for me…on a Sunday!  And most importantly, for helping me get the domain name I wanted and for hosting me! Thank you sooo much to TheHappy Wahm’s partner, The Techie Mom /  The Techie Mom in Facebook (another homeschooling WAHM!), for patiently answering all my questions,  doing the best you can to grant my “blog wishlist”, and finally putting all the pieces together to give my blog a total makeover!  (Chatting with you felt more like talking with someone who speaks Greek or Latin. Hahaha!)  A final “Thank you ❤” to Arielle, our eldest teen, for designing my “header” image and logo. Without your artsy contribution, this would just be white space all over.  It’s like having a white wall with no roof, no house number, no street name!  Thanks for helping out your not-so-techy Mama and for finding a way to add my request (or was it more of pressure?) to your already filled up schedule! (Don’t worry, your hard work will be credited to your 4th quarter TLE.)

So, feel free to look around and stay a while longer in my new home.  Leave a comment or go back to a post or posts that you remember liking before.  Or perhaps read some that you’ve missed in the past.  You can now hit the “Like” button and even share it!  I do hope that next time you visit, we will get to connect more.   Again, WELCOME! 🙂
