Random Thoughts

I've been missing for a few days for good reasons.  My daughter and her family visited this past weekend.  Since kids are on vacation this week they stayed until Tuesday.  When the grand-kids visit everything else takes a back seat, which I don't mind at all.  Back to my projects today.

One thing I've been procrastinating about is trying a new photo editing site.  I have been using Picnik and intend to keep using it until it's gone.  I was very said when I found out it would be going away.   I do not like change.  I have been reading on other blogs about some other sites to try so I guess I really should and get this one thing off my to do list.  Between Naps on the Porch has a good post about alternatives to Picnik.
Another thing that is changing is Google Friend Connect.  Right now this doesn't affect me, but it may in the future.  As of March, GFC  will not be available for non-blogger blogs, such as WordPress and TypePad. This means that if your blog is not on the GFC widget will go away.  A lot of bloggers are adding an alternate way to be a follower.  You may have noticed on my sidebar just above GFC a new widget, Linky Followers.  It's free and easy to use.  I have also registered my blog with Bloglovin.  I have yet to check out Google+.  Another addition to my to do list.  I actually have been thinking about changing my blog to WordPress or TypePad, but since I just paid $10 for my own domain on blogger for a year, I'm going to wait.

You may also have noticed that I've jumped on the social media bandwagon.  I recently created a Facebook page.  That is also on my sidebar at the top.  So, if you have a minute I would appreciate it if you would just click on the 'like" button.  You can also follow me on Twitter, but I have to admit I don't tweet much. And you can of course follow my boards of Pinterest.

A big shout out to all my new followers.  Thank you everyone for stopping in.  I'm off and running to my next project.  Have a great day all!
