I’m Back, Better Than Ever

Oh, hello. I’m back!

This time really for real since I signed up to blog every day in November for yeah write’s NaBloPoMo. Check it out – it’s not too late to sign up. I did NaBloPoMo last year and it about killed me to blog 30 straight days in a row. But it’s like a car accident I can’t look away from. Plus, I figured I might never blog again if I don’t do something drastic. I haven’t blogged in forever and it’s getting easier and easier to ignore. And I miss it. And I miss you too. When I don’t blog, I don’t read other blogs much either. That’s just sad. So I’m diving right in.

What’s it gonna look like? I’ll do a little of everything. Sometimes just a photo if I don’t have time for anything else. But I also hope to get back on the yeah write challenge grid with personal anecdotes and the speakeasy with fiction or poetry.

Speaking of looks, do you like my new design? It’s a work in progress, mostly because I still have decisions to make, but already such an awesome improvement. So over the next few weeks, I’ll be updating pages, writing an “about” blurb, etc. If you like my facelift and want one too, please contact Erica M. at yeah write better blog design. She’s super-talented and ready to work hard to give you a stellar makeover. She also just did Michelle’s, which you should definitely check out becauseΒ it’s awesome too.

Day 1, check. I hope I don’t drown.

    I’m frightened for this month but I’m going to do some quotes, books and other, somewhat easier, things every now and then. Like you, I’ve been rather non-existent on the web. I miss it and you! Let’s have fun this month.

    I’m so all over your design as well as Michelle’s. Have to call on Erica!

    Great look Stacy and I so glad to see you say — some days a post might only be a picture. That might be all I can to do. The blog suits you.

    • StacieNovember 1, 2013 at 2:53 pm #

      A post is a post no matter how small!

    I love your new look! It’s so clean and fresh! Plus I’m glad you’re back to blogging again.

      Thanks Ginny, me too!

      Happy to be back! Can’t wait to start reading again too.

    Hey girl! Your new design is gorgeous, OF COURSE, since Erica doesn’t do not-gorgeous. I love it! So sad I can’t join you in NaBloPoMo suffering, but it’s just not happening this year. Come on, 2014! Meanwhile, looking forward to a month’s worth of your stuff. Big hug from Texas!

      I’m gonna miss you so much! Daily posts from you were such a treat. But I get the crazy. I’ll probably regret it but here goes nothing…

  7. Michelle LongoNovember 1, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

    I do love the new look!! Thanks for the shout out and I’m glad to have you back!

    • StacieNovember 1, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

      Glad you decided to do it too! We can hold hands if we need to πŸ˜‰

    Great new look! Let’s do this thing!

    • StacieNovember 1, 2013 at 5:43 pm #

      We got this!

  9. The Dose of RealityNovember 1, 2013 at 6:17 pm #

    FUN!!! I can’t possibly take that challenge (it’s hard enough for us to put up 4-5 posts a week) but I LOVE reading those of you who have taken the plunge. Welcome back!!! (and I love the new look!!) –Lisa

    • StacieNovember 2, 2013 at 5:08 pm #

      Thanks Lisa. I think I took most of December off after last November. It is hard. But I needed to jumpstart again since I’ve been having so much trouble finding time to blog!

  10. Andrea@WellnessNotesNovember 1, 2013 at 9:28 pm #

    I like the new look!

    Glad you are back! And good luck with the challenge! Blogging every day is ambitious! πŸ™‚

    • StacieNovember 2, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

      Thanks Andrea! We’ll see if I actually do it πŸ˜‰

    Hi Stacie, Since today is my first visit I have nothing but how it looks today to guide me-looks great! And because this is my first NaBloPoMo I find the fact that you have signed up for a second round, very assuring. It feels nuts. It probably is nuts…but here we go. Good luck to you!

    • StacieNovember 2, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

      Thank you Elin and thanks for visiting! Good luck to you too!

    You won’t drown! One day at a time. (Or, more likely, seven quick posts on the weekend scheduled to appear one each day. Shhh. I won’t tell.)

    • StacieNovember 2, 2013 at 5:10 pm #

      Shhhh. That would be easier if my 9yo didn’t hog my laptop on weekends πŸ˜‰

  13. MarcyNovember 2, 2013 at 11:22 am #

    I love the new look–very crisp and clean.

    • StacieNovember 2, 2013 at 5:10 pm #

      Thanks Marcy πŸ˜€

  14. DianeNovember 4, 2013 at 2:56 am #

    I’ve missed you!! And yes…I love the new design. I don’t always pop over as you come right to my inbox. Good for you for taking the challenge! I’m looking forward to catching up on what’s been happening with you this month. πŸ˜€

    • StacieNovember 4, 2013 at 10:18 am #

      Yay, me too Diane!
