Changes Blew in with the Wind...

My faithful followers, it pains me to say this, but I need to move. I have outgrown this blog 'o mine. Though I love how much customization (prettiness, colors, fonts....) this blog allows me, I speak my life visually mostly. Sadly this blog site, though perfect for wordsmiths, not ideal for picture taking shutterbug nuts, which I am.

Often I shoot upwards from 200-700 pix at a family event. A quarter of these are great shots. Memorable, composed nicely and the subjects are all smiling cute. While this site is only allowing 4 initial uploads that take forever, then additional ones take forever again, then the fight to arrange them......It also challenges me when trying to keep things chronological. I do not have to think about such things over there.

The new Site is so Shutterbug friendly. Though not as pretty and what you are allowed to customize does not have very many options, I can upload 250 pix in 15 minutes, have a complete layout of them in an album or a slideshow and a blog/journal entry to offset the album. Individual pix can be commented on along with separate captions and tagging too. And there's a separate section for videos! And the video upload time is a blink of an eye compared to this site.

Make no mistake, this site has been good to me for many years. Like I said earlier, I have simply outgrown it. I am inviting you to continue following me at a new place. You will see many of the same faces, just lots and lots more of them. (wait, that may put you off visiting....)

I love that you have been a part of our lives. I don't want that to change. I need you. I will miss you if you don't show up on occassion. You can even request membership, which will entitle you to emails when new stuff is posted. C'mon it sounds fun right?

I love you all!
