State of the Blog

February 27, 2019

WordPress migration and site redesign – mostly complete!  Still working on comment migration (I cannot lose your precious insights, even the ones from 2010!). (Amanda continues to work on this; I am glad I did not attempt to do it myself!)

Ad network switch – hopefully soon! I have the minimum numbers needed for MediaVine, and I have heard very good things about them.

Newsletter release & email list – an upcoming project.

Option to subscribe to new posts via email – this is apparently very doable, I just have to set it up.   This was requested by a couple of you recently, which is very nice, and I’m going to make it work!


  • DITL/Time Tracking Posts
  • Also upcoming (whether requested or not) Trunk Club review, because I ordered another trunk!
  • Monthly Book / Media Report (spoiler, I only read 2 books in February, but they were both great)
  • Vacation / summer planning
  • Weekend posts – are these boring? I like doing them (makes me think about how we are spending the time), but I can’t tell if they resonate with others or not.

Ideas are welcome! You can always post in the comments or email me. (I don’t always respond to emails immediately but I ALWAYS get to them when I do my massive email clean outs, usually weekly!

PS: This week’s podcast episode all about family life logistics was a popular one! If you haven’t listened in a while, this might be one to check out 🙂

    I personally love the weekend posts- the more ‘inside glimpse’ into blogger’s lives are my favorite, so, IMO- keep them coming! As a side note, as I am commenting here, I realize I need to sign into “Disqus” in order to comment- is there a reason that you added this? Just wondering! It was easy to use FB to leave this comment.

    i loved the weekend posts! DITL/time tracking posts, and wardrobe/”superficial” stuff posts are also my favorite kinds! Satisfies my voyeuristic tendencies:). i loved the last podcast episode…the last few episodes, being kind of specific, have not resonated with me much but I may be in the minority here…

    I’d love a post that talks about your favorite blogs/podcasts/etc. I’ve really been enjoying the links you share on the Friday 5s too. There is so much media out there, I always love getting recommendations on other media from a person I trust! 🙂

    I love the weekend posts! Also love wardrobe, planner shots/posts, and when you do a rundown of what you’re reading/listening to.
