Under Construction

Blogger has been gently nudging me to switch over to the "New Blogger" for months now but I have resisted. Yesterday they said switch by June 1st or else. 

I started this blog April 5, 2008. Looking back at those early posts it was a pitiful thing. The year Daughter got married I started another blog chronicling that year. Oldest Son got married that year too. It was a crazy year.

 I stopped that blog after the weddings and had it printed.

I wish I'd had the sense to do this every year with my Araignee blog. Right now I am terrified of losing it all when I make the switch. 

I can't tell you how many times I go back and look up stuff on it. It's the encyclopedia of my life. The older I get the less I remember but Miss Araignee remembers everything.
Welp, you gotta do what you gotta do, so wish me luck. Hopefully I will be back right here tomorrow with a new look.
See you on the other side.
Fingers crossed.


  1. Crossing my fingers that all transfers just fine. I'm betting it will.

  2. Oh geez ................I AM on the new Blogger. You can rest easy. It works fine.

    It's the new FACEBOOK that I really don't like.

    Sheesh brain has done up and left me over all this quarantine. :::sigh:::

  3. I switched last night and everything is right where it should be-relieved, too!!!!
    I love looking back on mine-I started it in 2007 and have kept it going ever since.

  4. New Blogger?! I haven’t seen anything about this transition.

  5. I just saw a note about that this morning. No idea. so, good luck and let me know how it goes!

  6. Hmmm. I haven't had any nudges so I hope all is well come June 1. If not, I guess I'll have to start a new one. Good Luck my friend.

  7. I use my blog as an archive library too!

  8. Good luck! I hate change unless it is something I want to change. Hope to read about your experience tomorrow.

  9. Blogging has documented so much for me as well!!!! An unintended benefit of our efforts. Thanks for taking us along for the ride!

  10. Mine says end of June, who knows it may be a good thing:) I converted my Photo Blog and everything is okay:)

  11. Good luck! I've been ignoring that message. Hope I haven't been locked out of my blog. Guess I should go and see but... I'm too scared!
    Love the idea of turning the blog into a book.
