Oh Hi there! Do you like my new, er, design? It’s new. And GOLD. Because I guess I like gold. A lot. Seriously, if you are reading this in a reader click on over and see! I’m doing a bit of work over here. Changing it up. Getting a nice new custom design via Designer Blogs. Adding a community over at The Blog Frog (people, it’s just me over there talking to myself! Come talk to me if you are on Blog Frog…please!) I’ve even got a cute button that is awesomely official looking. Grab it and post it and I might love you forever!

When I started this blog back in August (September?) I thought I was going to keep this as a place I could write so I could keep all of the family stuff over at Players to be Named Later. It worked for a little while until I realized I was writing about my kids over here and posting nothing over there. I went back and forth on importing PTBNL many times and finally decided I just wanted to do it. I needed to have everything in one place. I’d already rolled my first blog, Stanley in the City into PTBNL a long time ago.

So, I did it.

I held my breath, closed my eyes and hit the import button.

Everything thankfully came over. Pictures and videos are all intact.

I also had some other things come over. Like the Google Ads I had in the footer on my posts. I totally forgot I had them because, well, I never go over there anymore. Big mistake because I get to manually delete the HTML from 560 posts now. And, all my post tags over in Blogger transferred as categories. So now I have like 600 categories to re-tag and re-categorize.

I have my work cut out for me.

I might be buried over here for awhile. I’m going to get rid of the ad code first and then go back and edit tags and get everything back in line so you don’t click on “Mom Stuff” and pull up a bunch of posts about going to shows at the Uptown Bar and the MU Tigers fantastic 2007 season.

Let me know if you see anything wonky and I’ll see if I need to fix it.

Thanks people. What would I do without you?

    I love this design – I was going to say something before but wasn't sure if it was new or not and didn't want to look like an ass!
