The time has come for a new chapter in the life of Simply Organized Crafts. I have not written a post on this blog for quite some time, and during that time, I had some decisions to make. I have decided to close this blog on Blogger. My decision is very simple: I have decided to concentrate on my business as a whole and I have decided to move this blog to a Wordpress based blog. The groundwork has already been laid to a point, and the posts I have on this blog will be moved to the new one. I actually have been operating 2 Simply Organized Craft blogs for two years, I just have not published the other one.
I have enjoyed my time on this one. I started doing serial posts on this blog. The reason why I started this blog in the first place was I wanted to see if I had a place in the world of organization and basic family life. It was also a place to put any home and garden-type posts instead of my P.Lynne Designs, which was named MDN Creates at the time. I love couponing too, but I must admit that I am not the extreme type, nor I will never be. I love technology, and I love teaching people how to use the technology that they have, but on a beginners level. From there, you can do wonders. These are the things I love about this blog.
What I did not like about this blog was the behind the scenes. I always recommend that if a person wants to start a blog, start one in the Blogger format. There are no pressures for the beginner to learn HTML, HTML3, and higher coding. Blogger is basically a point and click blog, but I have outgrown it. What I do not like about it is Goggle’s hand in the cookie jar aspect of it. What Google does is sort of monopolist-like. What they say is the golden standard or rule in all things blogging and website ownership, and they always say they are looking out for consumer, but really it is what can best to line their pockets with. I believe this is the reason why they bought both Blogger and YouTube, but that is a story for a different day on another blog. Simply Organized Crafts and another blog of mine, Tricia’s Baskets has not ranked in Google’s so-called rankings system in quite some time. I know it does not mean much to my readership, but it means something to me. This is what gets other readers and sponsorship, but more important, it also means I am making a footprint in this cyber world called The Internet (or the Interwebs as I heard a person once say).
What will happen to this blog is I will take a look at what types of posts I loved writing, and which one that are best for me to read on someone else’s blog. I know for one thing, coupon codes are out unless it relates to what I am reviewing. If I see a good deal, I will surely pass it along. Once I do, I will transfer only the ones that truly to the new blog’s format, and delete the rest when this blog closes in late January-Early February. This is the last post I will have on this blog. If I have the new blog up and running, I will have holiday articles on there.
The new URL is www.simplyorganizedcrafts.com. I am going to try to put a redirect on this blog soon as I am able. You can click on now, but you will not find any articles on there.
What will find on the new blog? You will have to wait and see, but I promise it will be good, informational, and helpful. Thank you for supporting me on this blog. It does not matter if you saw this blog in passing, in a search, or read from the very beginning (April 18, 2012), I truly appreciate you stopping by, and I hope you will visit, kick back, and stay a while in my new home, hosted by Host Gator.
