Family Announcement

I know, I know — I’ve been post­ing a lot of reviews late­ly. They seemed more inter­est­ing than actu­al updates. Most of my time has been spent doing vol­un­teer work for Grants to You, which is inter­est­ing to do but not to describe.

How­ev­er, I have actu­al NEWS now! My baby girl and her beau are engaged! I swear, it feels like she was just learn­ing to walk last week and now she’s all grown up!

No, there isn’t a date set for the wed­ding yet. I’ll post more when there is one. But for now, I’m very hap­py for my girl and her sweet­heart. There have been lots of tears of joy around here.

Addition: Task Card Template

I’ve updat­ed the arti­cle on our card sys­tem and added a Word doc­u­ment that has blank task cards, to help peo­ple make their own cards. That has been request­ed by sev­er­al dif­fer­ent peo­ple over time, and I final­ly found the orig­i­nal Word doc­u­ment, which made it eas­i­er to do so.

I’m con­sid­er­ing fur­ther updates to that sec­tion, as some of the resources I orig­i­nal­ly linked to have dis­ap­peared and it seems to need more expla­na­tion. I’ll think on it a bit more, though.

New Site — Feel Like Writing?

One of the changes I’ve made in the last few weeks is to move the stuff I’ve writ­ten about love, rela­tion­ships and com­mu­ni­ty to a new home, Felis Lunae. That’s a han­dle I’ve used on OKCu­pid and in oth­er places for years, so it’s a domain I hap­pened to have sit­ting around — no oth­er spe­cial mean­ing to the name, honestly.

Anoth­er is that Heart­song Hand­i­crafts, where my cross-stitch designs live, is now a Word­Press site. That makes it a lit­tle eas­i­er to nav­i­gate, and gives peo­ple the option to leave com­ments or con­tact me through the com­ment form.

I final­ly got all the home edu­ca­tion arti­cles moved over to Acad­e­my Car­i­tas, where I intend to con­tin­ue talk­ing about life­long edu­ca­tion (not just homeschooling). 

I moved a few more arti­cles over to my writ­ing port­fo­lio, and got the safe­ty and pri­va­cy arti­cles set­tled into their prop­er home at Cyber­stalked.

The only site that didn’t real­ly get changes (yet) is Fibrant Liv­ing, but it will get updat­ed. It’s about liv­ing a full, vibrant life despite chron­ic ill­ness­es like fibromyal­gia and major depression.

I want­ed to go over the list of sites because I’m open to guest arti­cles from any­one I know well here or on the oth­er sites. I know some very good writ­ers who don’t have web sites of their own oth­er than Face­book, which is real­ly more for ephemera. If you’re inter­est­ed in writ­ing an arti­cle or post, please leave a com­ment here or con­tact me otherwise.

Well, That’s Done. I Think.

I can’t say that I’ve fixed every bro­ken link every­where on the site (I didn’t go through all the old posts) but all the inter­nal links are work­ing now, thank good­ness. I think I’m done with mov­ing things about to new homes for a while, at least 🙂 I thank you for your patience!

Still working on the site

But as you can see by the grow­ing list of pages on the right-hand side of the site, I’m mak­ing progress. The read­ing, stitch­ing, geek­ery and health parts of the site have been migrat­ed to Word­Press, although not always rewrit­ten and updat­ed. My pro­fes­sion­al site has been migrat­ed com­plete­ly now, too. There are still some pages to be migrat­ed here, but they’re com­ing, then I’ll work on get­ting the pat­terns site migrat­ed and maybe even add more pat­terns. Fibrant Liv­ing needs some love, as does Cyber​stalked​.org, but that last one is my low­est priority.

I don’t sup­pose any­one would like to test stitch one of the pat­terns at Heart­song Hand­i­crafts? It would be nice to have stitched mod­el pho­tographs for that site. I haven’t fin­ished the biggest pat­tern that I was test-stitch­ing for the site yet.

There are new con­tact forms up on this site and at Cyn​thi​aArmis​tead​.com to offer an alter­na­tive way to reach me for those who might be shy about commenting.
