Blog Future

I’ve been using Squarespace for my blog going on 10 years.  It’s hard to wrap my head around the years that have passed and blogging isn’t the key reason why.   Those my age understand what that means.  

Anyway, it’s time to consider an alternative as I pay a monthly fee to use Squarespace and while I love it I have neglected it too long.  I’m not ready to abandon blogging entirely largely because  Tom and I are back into the RV trip mode even though I haven’t blogged about it.  We are planning some extended trips in 2015 so it would be a good time to move to a new platform, a free service, and use my Flickr account to store photos.   So that’s my next step, set up the new blog and figure out a transition plan.  

Besides a few RV trips last year, the biggest thing we did in 2014 was manage the construction of our new screened-in porch and then furnish it.  Tom and I consider it our exit plan from RVing.  We are not ready to hang up RVing yet, but that day will come at some point.  Our 2006 Allegro Bus was our first RV and the porch is our last one. Technically not the same, but it required the same serious discussions  to spend big money as it did when bought our Bus.  

For any readers who still pop in, I plan to open the new blog with a summary of our 2014 RV trips  and will announce that here.  I may keep this blog for a couple months pass the launch of the new blog, but then that will be it.  Nothing lasts forever.   Stay tuned for phase 2.   I hope it won’t take me months to reach it.  :-)

Lucy, I used blogspot when I was blogging ( and really liked it. I am not technically savvy, like you are, and I had minimal issues with using it. Oh yes, and i don't pay a fee. So happy you will be blogging again, I have really missed your posts

I haven't checked your blog for quite a while. Just viewed your porch pictures. This space has your signature all over it. It most definitely should be published somewhere. It would be a great inspiration to so many.

Lucy, have you moved the blog? If so, I can't find it. I've missed you, because I so enjoyed all your projects and trips! Can you point me to where you are now, please?

I hope all is well! I keep checking back to see if there is an update. Have always enjoyed seeing your projects and your travels. My husband and I would love to get travel trailer (not brave enough for a class a yet lol) and loved seeing all your pictures and recommendations for spots, etc.
