Boring Blogging Stuff

Affiliate links may be included in this post. Thank you for supporting Craftwhack!

I’m having a rather sparse couple of weeks around here due to some major behind the scenes overhauling. First, I got it in my head that I needed to redesign my blog, so I did. Knowing it would take hours upon hours, I just jumped on in and didn’t look back. I nearly tore all of my hair out a few times, but it was worth it.

Second, if you’re a blogger, you will know about all of the panic surrounding RSS feed subscriptions through Google. If you’re not a blogger, you really don’t care, but nevertheless why don’t you click here to sign up to subscribe to this blog via a reader or email? Yes, that’s good.

I spent the day today switching all my feed stuff around (yes, the day- in between child-feeding and homework and Legos.)

So this post in essence is to:

1. Explain why crickets are chirping a bit around here.

2. Grovel to get you all to subscribe to my blog. Where? Here.

3. Let out a loud WHOOP! That I can get past all the yucky technical stuff and focus on posting fun stuff.

4. Thank you all for reading, commenting, subscribing and emailing. I’m so excited by the support and kind words I’ve been hearing, so thank you, thank you, thank you!

And while you are all waiting at the edges of your seats for my next post, here is a list of recent things I’ve pinned on Pinterest…..

DIY felt board tutorial. I’m gonna make this. Yes, I am. Felt boards are the best.

Food art for kids, because it’s fun to make edible scenes.

It’s Playtime! Come check out this big linkup all about kids and creativity.

Just a little bit about the Golden Ratio. I keep meaning to delve deeper into this idea – mind-blowing art stuff.

And now, because I always feel the need to have an image in my posts, here is Fen swinging:

      Oh, geez. I tend to get overwhelmed, so I’m not sure if I did it the ‘right’ way or not. I just signed up for a new feed with them and canceled my Feedburner. I think I migrated my email list over. Did I? Did you get today’s email? In any event, I feel MUCH better having made the switch.

      I can’t take credit for it, sadly. It was Christian – he’s the mastermind, but thanks!

    Love the photo too and like the features of your new email subscription. Site looks great too! I want to make a felt board too. I will wait to see what you do with it – it will certainly be cool!

      I am a little obsessed with thinking about this felt board now. I’m having trouble not running out and buying 10 lbs of felt right now. We’ll see what happens…

    Ok, just signed up for your Feedblitz. I need to do that do. Damn Google Feedburner!

      You may think you’re mad at Feedburner, but wait until you switch. You’ll be so happy! They really do offer a lot, and you’ll realize how shoddy Feedburner is.
