Finally! It’s here. I have officially moved to:
My old site should redirect you here, but if not, please change your feeds and join me. It’s been an interesting process switching to DreamHost for hosting and using WordPress.org. Why did I make the move? To be honest, it’s just as my name implies. I wanted more freedom than what WordPress.com gave me, and though I certainly enjoyed my time on WordPress.com, it was worth it to me to make the move and buy my own domain as well. I am sure the look of the blog will continue to evolve, but I am excited for this new venture.
You will also notice, in the near right column, I have added a feed, Twitter, and Facebook button, linking to a page for Picky Girl where I’ll post more random thoughts and any news I have about books, teaching, or anything like that.
Of course, that also brings me to a subtle but big change. I have noticed I blog less when I feel as though I *should* be blogging about books. I love reading, I do. However, I also love teaching and making my house a home. Why shouldn’t my blog reflect that? I have also noticed my blog-reading habits change. I don’t always want to read about books. I enjoy a wide variety of blogs and want my own to reflect that preference.
Thanks to all of you out there who have been patient over the last month or two with less-than-consistent posting. I hope to change that as I have given myself a bit more freedom to blog.
As always, happy reading, friends.

p.s. A special thanks to Carin from A Little Bookish for all her help with html. It is definitely an uphill battle.
