Hey y’all! (First time I’ve ever used the Texas version of “you all”.)

I just wanted to let you know that I have a new blog, “Taking Up the Cross of Jesus.” I’ve had it since September, but I was a little wary of telling anyone about it till I was sure I was going to keep up with it. Well, there are six posts up now, so you now have permission to go see it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll give you the link in just a sec.

By the way, this new blog is on Blogger, not WordPress. I decided I wanted to try out Blogger, even though I’m pretty satisfied with WordPress (besides the fact that I can’t personalize the layout without paying through the nose for it). Anyways, one feature that Blogger has is that whenever you have a new post up, it automatically shows it on Google+ for the whole world to see. Well, okay, not the whole word…just the friends you have on Google+. I hadn’t realized this at first, so when I published my very first post on Taking Up the Cross of Jesus, one of my cousins emailed me and told me how excited she was about the new blog. Aaaaaaack! I was kind of creeped out for a while, wondering HOW ON EARTH she knew about it! I hadn’t even told Brittany about it.

I eventually figured it all out (I can’t remember exactly how it happened, but I think I wentย to the Blogger dashboard and looking up on Stats what the top traffic area had been…which was Google+), so now everything’s a fine and dandy again. Thanks for the scare, Emily. ๐Ÿ™‚

So NOW I will give you the link: Taking Up the Cross of Jesus

I put some pics on the About Me page (on my new blog, not on this one) from our vacation, so I guess that’s another reason for you to head over there. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They’re just random pictures (no captions), but it’s better than nothing, right?

So, now that I’m off Facebook for a bit, I should have more time to write. On both blogs. Ha! Maybe. (Hopefully.) I guess we’ll just both have to wait and see.

Also, one more note that I almost forgot about…if you go to the very first post, it will explain why I started another blog when I already have one.

Happy Reading, y’all! (The second time I’ve ever used the Texas version of “you all”.)
