So, here I am about 5 1/2 years from my first blogpost ever and just over 2,000 Pink is the new Blog posts later about to embark on a major change in my blogging lifestyle. Because I really didn't know what the hell I was doing when I decided to start writing an "online journal" my writing style started off in a very simplistic way ... I wrote one chunk of text per day, compiling all the various items that struck my fancy in one fell swoop one day at a time. All this time later, little has changed. My writing style evolved a little bit but, for the most part, my blog has remained pretty much the same since the beginning.

I have been contemplating a site revamp for many months now, mainly to clean up my site and make it look a little more professional (after all these years, it still looks pretty much the same "homemade way" it existed when I first started) and a little more streamlined. I also want to add some features that will make the reading experience better (a search that works, categories for organizing and yes, I want to bring back comments) over all. This, of course, means a new way of writing the blog. From here on out, I am going to start writing individual item posts for all the things I like to write about each day. This will allow for more content to be accessible thruout the day (from morning to night) but most importantly (and this is key for me) it will allow me to utilize my time better (ie. I hope to be able to bring an end to waking up at 6AM M-F). If I can create content that will go up thruout the day then I will not necessarily have to wake up at 6AM any longer, which is really no fun for me at all, as you can well imagine. The revamped site is still being worked on, I have no set date for the launch, but I want to start getting into the habit of this new writing style ... I figure the 2,000th post mark is as good a time as any.

Believe me, I am really nervous about this change but change can be good. I'm not entirely sure how smoothly things will go in the beginning but I hope that it ends up working out best for everyone. Hopefully there'll be more fun Pink is the new Blog content to enjoy thruout the day for all y'all and I'll be able to figure out a way to use my time more wisely. I do promise to offer at least the same amount of daily content each day ... but this new style might afford more content over all.

Here goes everything ...
