Five years ago today, I wrote my very first blog post. This blog started out as something silly I was doing with my daughters, but it has changed and grown a lot in the last five years. I had no idea, then, how the Lord would bless and grow Copperswife as we talked about what it means to look well to the ways of our households.
Today the blog and the old web site have become room mates in a new home, with room for both to stretch out a bit.
Dani designed and built this site for me, and I think she did a fabulous job. It wouldn’t have been possible without her! Copper has been a tremendous help, too, helping us move stuff from the old site to the new. Let’s not forget the boys who lugged all the living room furniture out to the front lawn and back the day we took the pictures for the new header. The move has been a family affair. I am blessed!
I hope you’ll do a couple of things right now. First, use the handy buttons in the side bar on the right, just under the picture of me, to subscribe. It’s like jotting a new address down in your address book, only better. The RSS button (the orange one) will allow you to subscribe in the feed reader of your choice, so you’ll always know when there’s a new post here. I use and recommend Google Reader. You can also opt to have new posts delivered to you via email by using that same button. Isn’t that easy? All new posts will happen here, so be sure to subscribe! I’d miss you!
There’s a button so you can connect with me on facebook, too. I share helpful links and pictures on facebook throughout the week that aren’t shared here, and it’s a great place to ask a quick question or to just keep in touch.
Second, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to look around and see what all we’ve been able to add for you here at copperswife.com. There are tabs at the top of the page to help you find information on several different topics. There’s a nifty “search” box in the side bar so you can search out what you’re looking for just by typing in key words. Those who like to know what’s in my reading basket will find that information in the side bar, as well.
As with any move, there are still quite a few boxes to unpack and some rearranging to do, but that shouldn’t slow things down too much. The archives from the last five years are very painstakingly being reformatted to this new space. We’ll try to have them available soon. In the meantime, there’s a link to my Xanga archives at the bottom of the sidebar.
Commenting here should be easy. All you need is an email address! I’ll need to approve your first comment, but subsequent comments will post immediately.
Welcome! I’m glad to have you here!
