Abbie's Real Life Blog

New Home, New Blog

June 7th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Endless Blathering, In Summary

Here is the end of this blog!  I didn’t do any packing- I’m just up and leaving for this site over here, a clean fresh start.

I mentioned something about this earlier in the year, about finishing up this blog and moving on to another.  I’ve done this before, but not as cleanly as this.  There was a three-year window between my first blog and this blog, but each one lasted six years.  That plus the fact that this marks 15 years since I started blogging.

I moved in with Justin (Jay’s real name) this week, and we decided to get a domain name together and write a blog.  So we bought Jabbiestan.com (a portmanteau of Abbie & Justin, sorta) and I put up a bare WordPress installation and started writing there this week.  Well, if writing includes posting a lot of pictures.  I finally put some effort into making it easier to post pictures from my phone to the blog, so hopefully that will continue.  It’s much more interesting to look at photos than to read my endless blather.

Technically, it’s Justin’s blog too, and he has his own log-in.  But I will be very surprised if he ever posts there, and I will be very surprised if he reads it much either, especially at the beginning!  We’ll see, though.

It’s been a busy few weeks, but getting the domain up before the move was a bit of a priority for me.  I also hosted a mildly successful high school class reunion (for those who attended it, anyway), and presented at my first librarian conference yesterday (which went really well, I think).  And the move itself went well.  Everything fit into the house, even if it’s not actually put away yet, and now I have weeks and months and years to get it all sorted out and organized.

But next week we will be headed out to San Francisco (my vacation, Justin’s work trip).  At the very least, it might be fun to hop over to Jabbiestan to see pictures from the trip.  So go on!  Do that!

It’s been fun to be here, but it will be fun to be there too.

Thanks for reading!

    I don’t comment as much as I used to. But I enjoy reading your blogs. You have used them for many outlets of expression, from music to cultural quirks to personal experience, and I like reading all of it.
