I’m moving…

Yes that’s right, I’m packing up my pixels and moving my blog from WordPress to Blogspot. I didn’t put much research into this last year and WordPress just turned out to be too complicated for my old brain to figure out, and there were some features I found I couldn’t add without “upgrading” to a pro-account with my own host and I’m sure as heck not ready for that. My posts mostly transferred over OK, but I still have a bunch of captions to fix and a few comments are missing, so if anything looks wonky, blame it on the technology, K? Cause it is definitely not the user. Definitely.

A new look

I’ve finally gotten around to designing and updating my header! No more overly-enlarged, looks awful, doesn’t even have the name of the blog printed on it, place-holder header.

I’m not sure what the protocol is for a fledgling blog, since I’d guess in most instances not many are around to witness its birth, but I feel I should say something by way of an introductory post. I am a lot of things –eBay seller among them. My initial thought was “hey, I should have a blog to promote my wares!” and while I will likely do some of that (See the Twitter sidebar) it is not what I want to be the main focus here. In the eight or so years I’ve been an online seller it has sort of taken over my life and my space. I love thrift shopping and probably end up keeping as much as I sell. I used to have time to sew and craft. I used to have a clean home which I took the time to decorate seasonally. I used to be able to accessorize an outfit. Somewhere along the line that all took a back seat to eBaying. I’d like to find a balance. I’d like to make time to do the things I enjoy, and I’d like my space back. Enter “The Style File.” I see this as a sort of an eclectic mix of my interests and creative talents. Please check in for fashion, shopping, home décor, restyling, repurposing, crafts, and other elements of style. I never was very good at sticking to one direct path. I hope that my quest for content will motive me and I’ll find my focus again and maybe head off in a new direction.
