New name. New look. Same blog.
I'm the type of person who likes to change things up even though they're working just fine. (Which, by the way, drives Glen nuts.) It's kind of like needing to rearrange the living room even though you didn't get any new furniture.
This craving for change is probably one of the reasons I enjoy working with digital media. One of my jobs before we moved to Stearns County was designing web sites for a community newspaper. I don't do much design work anymore, but I still love it. I love the flexibility – nothing is etched in stone, there's no final draft. And I love the creative outlet.
Now that we are a family of five, the header on our blog needed updating. This was one of the reasons I gave in to my craving for change.
The other reason was that I've wanted a simpler, shorter name for our blog for quite awhile. Let's face it: Cows, Kids and a Little Bit of Chaos was a mouth-full.
I thought about shortening our name to Cows, Kids and Chaos, but then I decided that it was time to focus on the good in our lives and not just on the chaos.
When I told Glen I wanted to rename the blog, he asked me, "Does that mean we're done with the chaos?"
"No," I said.
"The cows? The kids?" he bantered.
"No," I said, again.
We still have cows. We still have kids. Our life is still chaotic most of the time. But, despite the chaos, our life is a good life. Instead of focusing just on the chaos, I want to shine the light on what's good about this life.
A few more things...
• If you haven't already noticed it, last month I added a page for the columns I write for the Dairy Star.
• I also finally finished transferring all the posts from the old blog format, so if you use the nifty search feature (in the right column) you can search through every post I've ever posted.
• Please update your bookmarks and news feeds with our new address: dairygoodlife.com.
• You can also sign up to have new posts delivered by email. Just enter your email address under Follow By Email.
I hope you like the new name and new look as much as I do. Thanks for following along!
