A note from our president and CEO (that’s just me in my pajamas…but shhhh…don’t tell anyone):
Hiya. I don’t really see you here much anymore. I mean–I don’t seem to post very often lately. But I have a really good excuse. This blog you see here in front of you is new. We converted to this WordPress platform from Blogger a few months ago. And it isn’t even done yet. And for a blogger, that is kinda like getting a new car. You have to get used to the new placement of things. And I’d say I went from a simple, intuitive Honda Accord to a complicated, dashboard-y, and not-at-all-intuitive but very new and fancy Cadillac Escalade.
And I’m just not used to it. Actually, I feel rather displaced. But it isn’t just this new blog format. I’m deep into rebranding myself and all the stuff I share with the world in a way that shows more fully what I am trying to do here. And what I am trying to do here is to help you be the creative person you want to be–to help you step into the wonder and magic of living your passion–the wonder and magic of YOU–and to help you fall a little more in love with yourself.
And so, some housekeeping is in order. And on the backend (which is where I am typing right now) I sure could go for a nice Honda Accord right about now–with a sunroof and electric seats and those perfectly perfect Japanese engineered buttons placed at all the right places–right where I can reach them. I’m looking to the left and I see words like Plugins and Jetpack and I’m looking to the right and it says Categories and hell if I know how to use any of that.
So, hang in here with me. I’m just gonna spiffy up the place a bit and get used to this big Escalade and learn all these hieroglyphic codes so I can get back in here and write from my heart without all this awkwardness and displacement in my way. I feel like I am fumbling around in here and I might break something. Anyway, I hope you are living your dream. And if you aren’t…maybe today is the day to start.
xo, Carrie B.

Hi Terry! Thank you, my friend. I always enjoy hearing from you–you are so grounding. Hope you are well and good. Namaste.
Haha! Awesome, Sarah! That is rad. Thank you. Also, in other news, I think you and i have more work to do 🙂 I will email you soon. I miss the cloud of categories and I didn’t realize it until now…it floated on the sidebar, so people could pick a topic and read about just that…ya know? Also, the rebranding is well underway and then we will get back to business with a new landing page and slightly different look. Looking forward to it! You are so awesome. xoxoxox
I feel your confusion, I transferred months ago and I still haven’t worked it out, my blog is still looking a big mess, but then i don’t blog enough to get in the practice 🙁
