I Feel So New At This

My archives aren't here yet, but I'll move them eventually. Until then, I feel like I have a virgin blog -- although Curmudgeonry has been around for two-and-a-half years now.

Like many blogs, Curmudgeonry began on Blogspot, although my husband began using the name for a column he wrote in a college journal. Then after a little over a year on Blogspot, I was offered a chance to move to MT, which was wonderful until I came home from a Fourth of July vacation this summer to find I had no blog left. The fellow who had been hosting my blog and several others had summarily pulled the plug, giving no one a chance to save archives, templates or anything else.

I considered just stopping entirely and doing something else with my time, but I found reading other people's blogs wasn't enough. My fingers were still itching to type out my own thoughts, however insignificant. So, I moved back to Blogspot and saved all the Google cache that I could find from my MT archives.

A very kind, although she probably wouldn't like being known as such, blogger suggested Curmudgeonry for inclusion in the Mu.Nu ranks and many template errors and other snafus later, here I am. I just don't want to have to move this thing again -- okay?

I want to redesign my blog sometime, and I must say that yours is one of the ones that I most admire, stylistically (and other ways too, but I'm talking about design here). It's very simple, and feminine without being froufrou. I love the flowers, and the typeface of your blogname. It would be in my top 10 most appealing blog designs, if I were to make such a list. Mine is more than a little clunky, but still beyond my skills to improve materially. Maybe if I get this part-time research job I'm up for, I too can find my way to a lovely blog design... (that means, then I can pay for it because it surely isn't going to come about out of my HTML skills!).

Thank you so much, Susanna. I really appreciate hearing that. :)

No wonder you're such a purveyor of curmudgeonry...having to move so often and all.

I updated the sites for the Missus and I (Missus and me?) this AM.
