Something Different This Way Comes

So, a few days ago, I did a little Spring cleaning around here, and spruced up the blog with a dash of color; I was over the whole dark blue thing and wanted something lighter. Now, that doesn't mean that this look will stay, it just means ch-ch-changes.

And not just in the look, but also in tone and content. I fear that the blog has gotten away from me spewing my own personal views an any topic that interests me ... and those topics run the gamut from Kathy Griffin to Obama to the Catholic Church to Hot Guys to What's on TV to Architecture ... so, I'm gonna switch things up.

Some mainstays on the blog will be gone, maybe forever, maybe for a short while as I ponder the changes, and others may evolve; I'm kinda growing tired of the Gossip posts and the Sunday Funnies, but I like Architecture Wednesday and I Didn't Say It ... and ...

I've just found that there are more interesting things, more important things, more personal things to think about and share; some serious, some ludicrous, some important, some just plain dumb. But, as Leslie Gore once sang, and I will paraphrase, ♫ ♪ It's my blog and I'll change it if I want to ... ♪ ♫. 

I have things on my mind, swirling around, that I want to share and talk about, and I think now is as good a time as any to switch it up because I figure if I'm not that interested in what I'm saying why should you be?.

Stay tuned ....

One of the weekly posts I liked most was Random Musing. I've even used it at my blog a couple of times. I'd hate to see it go, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. I'll still be checking you out several times a day!

I'll miss the funnies and so will my friends

I have noticed the change's and love them. I have gotten emails about such posts that people want to see more or less of. So I may do the same. Its important to change things up a bit and keep them fresh if a blog is going to survive in what sometimes looks like a possible land of extinction.
