|Happy New Year 2015!|
Welcome to Czech Off the Beaten Path's new home! I announced the move back in August, but didn't have time to begin working on the move until today. It feels good to have this blog on it's own shiny new site. My intention is to take up blogging regularly once we are through the holiday season. Which reminds me--Happy New Year!
The Past YearThe past year, 2014, has brought two important anniversaries; Jiri and I have been married for 10 years, I moved here 8 years ago, and Czech Off the Beaten Path turned 7 years old. Time has gone so fast, but most every minute has been packed with adventure, new experiences and people, and so much more. I can't complain.
What I've Been Up ToThis past year has seen me branch out into writing my first ebook, Asthma's Nothing to Sneeze At!, and working a bit on Fiverr and other clients on many intriguing projects. I am currently working on two more ebooks that will be out later in 2015, and my fingers have itched to write fiction. I don't know where this might lead--maybe nowhere--but I'll give it a try and see what happens.
Other projects have involved getting acquainted with Linux Mint, which I installed on a USB drive, moving this blog and much more.
What's NextPlease bear with me during this transition time--my "house" is being unpacked and put in order. I'll have to go through each post to edit and fix everything that didn't "translate well" during the move.
Part of the mess comes from writing posts in Word, then copying and pasting into Blogger. Word likes to throw in it's own formatting, which only complicates things for the web. The process of cleaning up the posts includes copying and pasting the text into Notepad, which strips out all the Word formatting, then pasting the text back into the blog. There's usually a little bit of formatting left for headings, at times needing to realign/add pictures, etc., but it doesn't take too long. I'll also have to configure the comments (for each blog post), the RSS feed and some other work before this process is complete.
Hopefully this will be done soon, but in the meantime, things will be a little messy until everything is put to rights and cleaned up. Please bear with me during this transition time and know that I'm working as fast as possible to get things back in working order. Moving is a messy process, especially when you're doing it yourself! Even so, please feel free to browse, read and leave comments (where possible). Just watch out for the wet paint and drop clothes--step over them carefully and please don't trip!
Thank YouThank you for hanging in there while I've been off doing other things. Thanks, too, for coming to visit our new home on the web!
I wish you all a very Happy New Year in 2015, filled with love, health, happiness and prosperity!
PS Please feel free to let me know about additional problems (to those I listed above)! Thanks!
