As you know, Jessica has handed over the reigns of this awesome blog to me. It was a very quick decision to be made as the URL was about to expire on Nov. 15. So we had to make the changeover much more quickly and abruptly than we would have liked. In the process, I had to quickly learn how to move the blog from Jessica's Typepad Account to mine. It was a lot of time and work just figuring out the logistics. I truly appreciate you bearing with us as formats changed, and links and photos broke. It will take time to update the over 200 posts Jessica has given us, but at least we haven't lost the great body of content she created.
So now I'm writing the message I had hoped to write sooner. You are probably wondering what my intentions are for the future this blog. The answer is - I'm not completely certain yet!
My number one intention was to NOT let this blog die and NOT lose all the brilliant and delightful content Jessica shared with us. I'm going to miss her as much as you will! But now that the blog is on my account, we have the option to have multiple authors - so Jessica can still contribute - without the burden of the administrative upkeep of the blog.
My current thinking about the future of the blog is to keep it's focus mainly on the deeper, more spiritual meanings of what it means when we keep too much stuff and have difficulty letting go of things that are causing us pain and stress.
I am thinking of eventually having lots of guest posts focusing on articles that relate to how we use our time, how chronic disorganization affects the quality of our lives, how family issues with organizing and clutter can be resolved, how we can make peace with our stuff, and living with ADD & ADHD affects our organizing style and needs, and lots more.
I would love to hear what you would like the blog to be about, too, so please do leave a comment and let me know how you feel about the transition and what you would like to see more of on this blog as we evolve it over the next few months.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding.
There is no way I can replace Jessica's unique viewpoint, but as least we will still have her from time to time!. I hope you will stick with me as a reader and be pleasantly surprised with how the blog evolves!
I'm going to be on vacation till the end of the month...but I will be thinking of way to make this blog a valuable source of learning & exploration for you.
I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with many blessings to be thankful for!
