I’m branching out on new pages

I’ll bet you all thought I had given up on blogging!
It’s been 4 days since my last entry – umm maybe it was only 3 days.
I’m so busy, that I’m completely losing track of time.
Anyway, I have a number of things to share with you all today.
First, I’m learning more about this blogging stuff all the time. That’s no easy feat considering everything else I’m trying to learn. I find that there are evenings when I can’t sleep because I have so many things I have left undone.

    If there are any psychologists out there, move along. Nothing for you to see here.

So where was I?

Oh yes – sharing. I’m all about sharing.
First – I have branched out into {insert drum roll here} PAGES!
TADA!

Ok – so that was not nearly as grandiose as I imagined it would be.

Notice a new link at the top of the page now?
Under the panoramic image of the Lighthouse – there is a link button that says Knitting With Polly.
Very soon there will be another that says In the Kitchen With Polly. It’s a work in progress.
As for the body of the site, this page will remain as is with my ramblings, my announcements and my photography. I’m doing this because the last few days I’ve been torn about what I would be sharing with you each day. And every time there has been more than most people want to see. For instance, some who visit Sharing with come for the recipes and could care less about knitting – and vice versa. Others come to hear the sound of my voice and are not crafters and frankly have only a general idea of what goes on in a kitchen… Ok – That last category of visitors is completely made up. Anyway – I hope that you all like the change.
As for updates to the pages – I am not sure yet how I can display that, but I’m sure I’ll figure it out .. eventually.
OR maybe some really nice blogger specialist will come along and tell me how to do that.
A girl has to have her dreams..

Secondly – A HUGE Thank you to Krista from Krista Kruger Photography was kind enough to select me as one of her Stylish Bloggers! Yay!

Hmmmm – maybe today was NOT a good day to change the layout of the blog.

As part of the Award, I am supposed to share 7 things about myself with my readers.
I can think of more than 7 things to share but I’m sure there’s a lot of things that would bore everyone to tears. The challenge is to think of 7 interesting facts. What to share! WHAT to share ……. (tapping finger on chin)…

    1. I am a very shy person and because of this, I get tongue tied in social situations.
    (Yes, I’m the person who opens mouth and inserts foot regularly)
    2. I used to write for several Collectible Publications back in the day when I hoarded Cherished Teddies, Boyds Bears, Krystonia and Barbies.
    (I still have all the items I collected with about 1/3 actually displayed in the cabinet.)
    3. As of 2009, I live next door to my parents.
    4. I served 18 years in the Canadian Forces as an Avionics Technician (Air).
    5. I am terrified of spiders.
    (Arachnophobic is my middle name.)
    6. I would love to visit Ireland, and Scotland.
    (My mothers side of the family comes from those two countries)
    7. I love all kinds of music — except RAP.
    I just can’t wrap my head around RAP.

Now – I get to award other bloggers – people I follow. And I do visit these sites every day! If you haven’t been to see what’s up with these ladies, I hope you take the time and soon. So without further ado: Lisa, from ohmygoodknits has all the stuff I love! Fun knitting, crochet, photography, family, and every now and then throws in quirky stuff for fun. It’s a real pleasure to read her blog entries. ; Krystal from Sassy Sanctuary has fun and easy projects and how to photos. A great place for inspiration and ideas!

So there you have it!
Now – I’m off to learn more about setting up the blog links etc – boring behind the scenes stuff.
Hope you all have a wonderful day and let me know what you think of the new layout.
Should I keep it – or go back to everything on the one page…

  1. I once did psychological testing and diagnosis, but I will give you a break here. Congratulations on being “stylish”, but then I always thought that about you.
