You know, I'm up to 5 blogs now. Several, I'm not promoting as they are very niche oriented but my "babies" I promote quite heavily and write to daily. Which got me to wondering, "why don't I post to this, my first blog, more often?"
I have an answer to that question. It's because I'm using the blogger platform. Yes, I have gotten my own domain name but I'm still using blogger's platform & it drives me CRAZY. I used to love blogspot. It was so easy to use, even a non techy could set up a blog in just a few minutes!
Somewhere in the Fall though, during one of Blogspot's updates, my blog got all wacky on me. Now, it's a rare occurrence that I can write a blog post without something going wrong. Usually, when I publish it, half my post has disappeared. But I have had other issues too. And with Blogsot, there is no support so I'm stuck with a buggy blog. I did ask in the blogspot forums but no one could help there. So out of frustration, I just unconsciously started posting less and less to this blog.
So if you wondered why I went from posting almost every day to just several times a month, this is why. As much as a learning curve there was with getting used to Wordpress, I feel more comfortable with it now and don't have the same frustrations. I probably should figure out a way to transfer this to wordpress now. I know you can with blogspot blogs but it might be a bit more complicated with it being on my own domain too.
Anyway, if you'd like to check out my other blogs, I started a brand new one recently called "Saga of a Work at Home Mom" or http://sagaofawahm.com It's about my life as a single work at home mom but each day I will add a life tip or business tip.
And if you are a dog lover, check out "Bloggy Doggies" or http://bloggydoggies.com And do keep checking back here. Since this blog is tied to my Cathy's Creations business, I don't plan on abandoning it. I'm gritting my teeth and forcing myself to deal with the blogspot issues and post twice a week. I think I can handle that much without going completely bonkers.

Featured Blog of the Day
Cathy's Creations is my beloved craft business. I have been making and selling whimsical, handcrafted jewelry, gifts and personalized ornaments from polymer clay. I am a swahm of 3 older kids, 4 dogs & lots of other critters. I am so happy and grateful to be living my dream by working from home! It isn't easy but it is SO worth it! Although this blog is directly tied to my business, I'll be discussing lots of other stuff too including business resources and tips for small business entrepreneurs and tips in running your household.
Cathy's Creations is a family run business. Cathy's 20 something daughters Shannon and April and her teen son Ryan help her with running the business and doing craft shows although Cathy herself does all the designing and actual crafting.
Cathy looks forward to many years running this small family business and gets great satisfaction from her happy customers.
Cathy lives in Virginia Beach, VA with her 3 children, 4 furry children (dogs), assorted fish and 2 hamsters.
