But, in case you were worried I'd disappeared entirely, there are actually a few new posts over at the new digs:
- Rosy Finch Days, 12/30/14, reports the recent return of our very rare visitors
- Ah, Spring! Let me count the ways, 3/19/15, chronicles a few early harbingers of the season to come
- Bound to Happen, 3/25/15, revisits Colorado's wet spring snows, one of which we're enmeshed in today (sun's out now, though)
Foothills Fancies was a Spring Thing, started on the equinox in 2006. This is always a great time for new beginnings.
Although all the old FF posts are archived over at the new place, the formatting didn't transfer well and they will be prettier and more easily read here at Blogger. Use the Blog Archive or the Category Labels in the sidebar to access old posts. FF posts for 2006-2014 will remain here, and I'll be linking to them from new posts on related topics.
No guarantees I'll post more often, but there's lots going on and the possibility of new kinds of information from new places.
I'm not satisfied with the new template yet, so there'll be more changes to the look—but the content will be stable, and (I hope) a little more regular.
Why the move? I'm working a lot in WordPress for other projects lately and finding it harder to switch back and forth, especially with new interfaces being introduced—on both ends! WP offers the opportunity to consolidate more than Blogger does, and I hope the new site can be a central access point for all my online activities. The public ones, anyway. It's a challenge to stay on top of multiple online identities and I'm hoping consolidating will help.
I've immensely enjoyed the blogging community I've connected with here at Foothills Fancies; it's given me inspiration to write and to report observations here on the homestead. With a few exceptions, however, my blogging pals are moving on to other challenges or finding other ways to keep in touch. I'm enjoying Twitter at @slwhiteco, so look for me there. And do come visit at FoothillsFancies.org!
This post is my cookie crumbs... I'm off but I'll try to keep in touch here from time to time.
Thanks for all the fun—hope to see you soon!
