A Clean Slate

Well, here I am, blogging about the random and the mundane in my life. I was with Spaces for 2 1/2 years. Then one day a couple of weeks ago I couldn't get into my site. So I emailed them.

They responded 3 days later saying that my site was shut down due to inappropriate material and I hadn't responded to their warnings.

Kinda hard to respond when I never received them.... I emailed them a couple more times about what I posted that got their panties in a bind. Still haven't heard from them.....

Those that know me from Spaces know that I have never published ANYTHING inappropriate. Not even remotely risque'. No, I'm pretty much your run-of-the-mill blogger who blogs about the random and mundane.

I thought about just bagging blogging altogether, but there was this little itch, this little tug, to continue blogging about the random and the mundane.

Believe me; my life is pretty mundane. Oh, I try to make in interesting by throwing in stories about my husband and kids. But I am not a MommyBlogger, nor do I aspire to become one.

Don't get me wrong. I love my kids. But there's more to me than them. In the coming posts I'll introduce them to you.

What I'm most disappointed about with the loss of Spaces is 2 1/2 years of archived posts. There's a lot of history that just went up in smoke. Things like our 10th wedding anniversary, my 411, the Westroads Mall shooting in December, the suicide of my father and subsequent posting a year later, nuggets from Jenna as she's gotten older, the 20th anniversary of the drowning of my friend from grade school, rants about my husband, and just random ranting in general.

Here's my chance to start over and create something new.....but there was nothing wrong with the old.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

Sweet! Your first comment.

Way to go porno queen. I hear its pretty hard to get kicked off of Spaces too!

Maybe it was time for a clean slate. You made your old site sound so "cheery" with suicides, drownings, and shootings! More sex and bad language! Tell us about band camp! :)

Hello, thanks for visiting over at my place.

That sucks that they did that to you! Maybe they will e.mail you back and you can retrieve them off of there or something. Thats alot of work to just not have access to anymore.

I'm In!!!

I think you'll like it over here!! I know I love it!! You have to look up a photo album to embed for pix of the girls.
And I would keep bugging MSN for to open you back up. I have read some spaces that are awful...and those are still up and running.
Here you can set your comments to be emailed to you and you can email every entry to your email address so you can save each entry just in case....with gmail...I can archive them. It may not make much sense but there is a method to my madness.

Welcome to the neighborhood!!
