Time for a change...

Ok.  I've been thinking of changing this blog for a long time.  I've weighed the pros & cons of switching to wordpress, or going with a whole new blog because I don't have the most original blog title in the world, (or the most witty one for sure) but in the end I decided to keep with blogger because I'm more familiar with the program and so far so good.  Until today when I was messing around and pressed save without thinking of the consequences.  I like the new look, and of course its a work in progress.  What I don't like is that I lost all the comments I've had on my blog over the last seven years and I liked those comments - alot.  Often I peruse old posts and re-reading the comments from you all has often brought a smile to my face as I reflect over times gone by and and the encouraging, often amusing words you've written in response. 

I'm eventually going to add my links, etc, however it will be a work in progress as time allows.  What would cheer me to no end though, dear readers (if you are out there) is if you would take a minute to let me know you've been here by dropping me a line under comments.  This will hopefully go a long way in making up for the loss of almost a decades worth.

I love the look - jeff is right, very fresh!!

There's a way to export a backup of your blog that you can save on your harddrive, comments and all. Next time I'm on blogger I'll find it and post it here - at least you can prevent it from happening.

Oh, I would be disappointed too if I lost all my comments. When I changed my blog I was super worried that I was going to lose everything because I was changing to a whole new url, but fortunately everything seems to be there!!! Anyways, here's one new comment for you!

Oh no, you lost your comments! That is disappointing. Here's hoping your future posts and comments keep coming!

Love the new look. I know the deliberations you have had over changing the blog...but i am so glad you have chosen to keep jojoscrazylife... It's you and it's what were all used to... and lets face it... you could not get a more apt title could you?

Keep it up...it's something i look forward to everyday.. If i were to make one comment,... it's blog more often... your writing is so heart-felt, honest and sincerce and after reading your blogs it never fails to put a smile on my face and remind me how clever and smart you really are... love you!
