Trailer 29: Launched!

OK everyone, it's here! This blog is officially over, but you can be part of the grand opening of my new blog, Trailer 29. ( I've been working pretty hard on it for the past couple of weeks (you can't really tell because I suck at html and photoshop and illustrator... but I have!) and I hope you'll enjoy reading it as well.

I'm hoping to get a pretty large readership on this one, so please tell your friends and continue to comment and stuff. I've really appreciated all of your support over the past few years and hope that we'll stay connected through this, my new endeavor!

The End... Almost

I'm not sure how many people still have this blog bookmarked after months of inactivity, but here's the scoop on what's going on.

I finally have a blog idea that I'm excited about, which will focus on life in a trailer and how we will try to maintain an upbeat and tasteful life, complete with updates on home improvement and making healthy and delicious food. It will also probably follow my pursuits in music, art, and writing amongst other things. I think I'm going to call the blog "Trailer 29."

So as not to have ten million random blogs floating out there in the blogosphere, I'm getting rid of my other blogs, including this one. There will be one more post here on Scabby Lists which will notify you of the grand opening of "Trailer 29," which will hopefully launch as soon as we get internet hooked up to our mobile home. I'm really excited about it and I hope you guys will like it.

So don't delete this blog from your feed just yet... I'll let you know soon where you can find my new and improved blog, hopefully within this month! Thanks so much!
