I'M LOST

Hey Boogerbutts! I don't know what to do with this space? I'm lost and mildly frustrated.

The idea was to turn this into a central location for everything, blogs, MeWe, videos, podcasts... but that doesn't feel right either. So, I'm just gonna come back to blogging for now until I figure it out.

In other news, it's a beautiful snow-filled day outside but not so cold that my toes freeze to the fabric of my socks. So that's a plus. And in other, OTHER news, I'm podcasting and I freakin' love it. My last cast is about how I protect my creativity. If that topic interests you, please have a listen.

As for what I'm up to today .....

  11. Mmm, pancakes. I cleaned my fridge last week, so it's good for quite a while now. I'm not much for trying out other stuff, I'll just stick to blogging.

    1. How great is a clean fridge?

      Yeah, there's a lot of platforms out there. Some suck and others are great fun.

  14. It's always good to see you pop up in my blog feed, Ivy. I've downloaded your pods, but not got round to listening to them yet.

    Also still not convinced about MeWe - fear it's just going to fizzle out and everyone will have to upsticks and move again, whereas Blogger and Facebook will be here until the End Times ;)

    1. Thank you bunches, Flea. I LOVED hearing your podcast and can't wait for more. Really, really fun.

      MeWe is interesting. I don't know that it will fizzle, it's a pretty fun place to be. Minus the notification. Those are insane and a hot mess.

  15. Hi Ivy, great post and podcast. I am struggling with similar thoughts regarding my blog. thought that having all this time off would help me understand my next steps but it's not happening. The fact that you decided to do something until you decide what to do is a great one. Thinking that maybe I should do something myself. (hope this makes sense). Take care my friend, so proud of you!

    1. Hi Cheri! Thank you for writing me this comment. I read it to Tim. It's really good to know that I'm not the only one struggling in this area.

      Do you find your overall enjoying your time off to be in the kitchen and travel more?

  16. Hi Ivy :) Nice to see your post! I hope you keep blogging, it's always fun to read your blog. Maybe you can do a weekly post here of everything you've done on the other platforms? That would be nice!

    1. Thank you, Rain. I enjoy blogging just not the space I have here in terms of, the layout feels so cluttered to me and I don't know how to fix that.

      I like that idea of posting what I've done in a week. Now I need to find a non-cluttery, non-spammy way to do it.

      Thanks for all your support during the summer. You really do rock!

  25. I miss you on blogger. Couldn't believe it when I saw you had a post. I seldom watch podcast. It's a medium I can't get into but I wish you luck.

    1. Hey Susan. Hope you're enjoying your holiday season. Yeah, podcasting isn't everyone's bag. I get that. For me, I love listening to podcasts while I clean, go for a walk or draw. It's like books on tape but with real people. Thanks for stopping in and boogie boogie.
