We’re Back!

Before I get into the entry I’ve been planning for the past few day while our site was down, I want to pay my respects to those who have been effected by the horrific fires in Victoria, as I write this I am hearing the new statistics; the death toll has been confirmed at 173, over 700 houses have been lost, whole towns have been ruined and 20 fires continue to burn. I can’t even begin to understand what people are feeling, having lost everything, but I can offer my thoughts, prayers and support.

For more information on this disaster, go here. And please DONATE through the Red Cross.

Also in our thoughts are those in North Queensland who are struggling with floods.

So, we’re back up. The whole time we were down, all I wanted to do was write this entry!

I have a confession; I’ve been using another blog. The affair has been purely superficial, my heart will always be with beckyandjames.com, the thing that drew me away was my frustration at the limitations placed on me within the program we were using. I was unable to change the things I wanted to change without it being a HUGE drama, I was unable to put my photos on the server and had to go through photobucket… I was unable to comment on other blogs without a google/blogger sign in, anyway, so I figured why not give blogger a go? Why not try the whole annonimity thing?

Beckyandjames was started as a way to keep family and friends up-to-date and we have never really ventured into the true blogosphere and become social -I felt it was too hard to start connecting with other bloggers from here after so long.

At Scrappin’ Me Sane I have found a community, but not through belonging to blogger as such. I had to venture out, after some time, as I was starting to wonder why I couldn’t get readers or comments at all and found SITS. Once I joined in there I was surprised to find many comments on my blog, I was welcomed so warmly and have already found some awesome blogs to follow. The support provided by this site is awesome and I started wishing I had found them and participated through beckyandjames.

I have found it too difficult to keep both blogs running as I would like, so we’ve taken steps to give me more control here so that I can make this blog what I want it to be and I will keep my google log in but not the blog so that I can continue to follow the blogs I have become attached to.

Faithful readers; don’t leave me for my indiscretion and new readers; welcome, let me know you’ve been 🙂 Oh, and please be patient, we’re still working on this site and how we want it to look/work, thanks!

For now I have a possible Sydney trip tomorrow that I need to pack for.
