Self Hosted Blogging

The other day I mentioned in a post that I was considering moving my blog to a self hosted site. Which I have decided that I will for sure be doing...Complete with name change too. A self-hosted blog is a webpage in which I will have complete control over in pretty much every aspect (right now I'm just borrowing space on blogger's server...When I move I won't have to worry about that anymore)....I won't be at the mercy of or Blogger anymore. I won't have to worry about blogger deleting my blog for grins and giggle's again...I won't be at the mercy of anyone really design wise anymore. I will have my own little space of the internet to do my thing on. To be honest, I can hardly wait to get started. I've already decided what my new name is going to be and I'm in the process of trying to find a web designer and get the process rolling. I hope my little explanation was helpful.

I've been thinking about making this change for months now. I've been weighing the pro's and con's to making this big of a move and I think that it's time for me to take a leap of faith. As much as I've enjoyed everyone here that I've met on blogger I realize that when I make my big move that not everyone will make the move with me. For those who don't....It's been a pleasure. I hope to see you around the bloggy world.

Somethings I've been thinking about doing....

For a little while now I've been thinking about doing my own swap. I'm going to do a little more studying on the subject and see what I can come up with. I'll keep everyone posted as to when/if the swap will be happening.

Another thing that I've been thinking about doing is maybe making my blog a self hosted blog. I've done a little bit of studying on the subject and some of the other self hosted blogs that I've visited are great. The only thing that really worries me is not having really anything to say on some days.

Tomorrow Tasty Tuesday will probably be a little bit late being posted....Getting my crown put on and determining if I'll actually need a root canal or not. I'm hoping not but right now I'll be honest....It's not looking good.


Just because I feel like it

The Best Damn "feel good" giveaway EVER!

My bloggy pal Pooba is hosting a giveaway to raise a little money for a family member's cancer treatments. The prizes? There are two....One is an apron from Boojiboo aprons....The other....Well it's a mystery suprise.

Here are a couple of examples of Boojiboo aprons....The upside to this giveaway is that you get to pick your apron if you win and there are over a 100 to choose from.

If you would like to participate....Please click on "POOBA" to go directly to the giveaway post.

Not much has been going on around here in my little corner of the world this week. I've had 4 days off of work...Which I'm super excited about....but not super excited to see my next paycheck is all. In those 4 days I've done a whole lot of nothing...which I'm very good at for the record. The weather's been pretty iffy around here too so Laci and I haven't been able to get out for as many walks as I'd like but beggars can't be chosers right?

I'm in the process of thinking up another giveaway...I had so much fun with the first one I figured what the heck. I don't know what's all going to be included yet, so please keep checking back for updates.

I've been trying a whole bunch of new recipes recently...Most of which are up in printable format on my other blog The Country Girl Cooks and Talks Money. Of the recipes that I've tried so far no duds yet. Which makes me really happy. I'll have some more of the photo "how to's" up shortly.

Did you know that Bed Head makes a pet care line the Bath and Body Works carries exclusively online? Here's the link if you want to check it out.
Also, I'm looking for any and all titles/authors to reading material. I'm going to be spending a lot of time at my local libary while I'm saving up to get brakes put on my car and extra "fun" stuff like that.
