I am very excited to be starting a new round of Blogging Through the Alphabet with Marcy at Ben and Me. If you’ve never participated, check it out. She’s got some great new things going on for this round.

A few weeks ago I was thrilled to find out that I had won a prize from the Ultimate Blog Party from 5 Minutes for Moms. I won a Blogger to WordPress transfer from Blogelina.

This transfer is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. When I began blogging- back about 6 years or so ago, I was looking for the easiest platform to use because I knew nothing about what I was doing. I actually used a platform that isn’t around any longer- Homeschool Blogger. As time passed and I read more blogs, I liked some of the pretty designs I saw, and I couldn’t do as much of that with Homeschool Blogger- at least not without knowing code and such. So I moved to the Blogger platform. I’ve been happy here at Blogger for many years. It’s easy to use. And I use all Google products, so it was fitting for me to use Blogger.

In the last year I’ve been challenged to think about my blog as more than a now and then hobby. I started blogging because I was so encouraged by the blogging community. So now that I’m older and have experiences that I can share about my family and my children, I want to be that encouraging blog. So I’ve been working to make my blog bigger and more widely read. I’ve read much about the benefits of Blogger or WordPress, and I think that WordPress will allow me the freedom to do more with my blogging.

I’ve been very afraid to think about making the transfer myself. Although I know much, much more about blogging and designing and coding than I did when I began years ago, I still don’t know enough for something that big. Also because I am a TOS Review Crew member, I’ve got quite a few links that I want to keep working well. And I have a strong readership that I don’t want to have to struggle to find my page or wait for me to make corrections.

And so, this coming Friday, As We Walk Along the Road will be moving. I’ll have a new web page home and a new web address, but my goal for blogging remains the same. I want to be an encouragement. I want to provide resources for my readers. I want to be able to answer questions or give advice. And I hope that this move will help me to be able to do that even better.

As the move happens, please don’t get lost in the shuffle. Keep coming by. Everything should go off without a hitch. I always welcome comments and questions, so don’t hesitate to let me know what you think about the new look coming. And let me know if you have any questions during the move.

Thank you for reading As We Walk Along the Road. Come on over to my new place on Saturday- and bring some friends!

And don’t forget to join in with Blogging Through the Alphabet with Ben and Me.
