Why Do You Spell Things Wrong?!
While you can gain a bit of information about me from reading around the site there are some things that are just not on there because they did not come up in the posts or introductions to the pages. So, let me tell you a little bit more about myself.
First off: I actually am a published author! You can buy my book on Amazon and at your local bookstore. You can find the link in the sidebar if you wish to purchase it on Amazon. You can also go to the section about my published works for more information!
I have had several people ask me about my spelling. My favorite time has been when I had a person come up to me at college and tell me that I was spelling things wrong or that I was calling things by the wrong name. All I have to say is, oh silly American English. So, today I am taking a break from my usual posting to clear up some terms and spellings that people keep telling me are incorrect.
Where was I born? Not in the Commonwealth! Amazingly I was born in the middle of the United States to my wonderful Mother and Father that are of Oto-Missouria/Dutch/Prussian/French/English/Swedish decent. So, how do I end up sounding like I’m British rather than American? Well, it comes from learning my English from people that use Oxford English. *sigh* For the longest time my teaches and professors thought I grew up overseas. Oh well. That’s life.
About the Site
This site is the combination of two blogs that I had on another website and got so fed up with the problems that I was having with it that I just gave up and moved my blog and in progress website here. Really there are several reasons for me moving over here. One is that keeping the old blog secure and free from issues was beginning to be a bit of a pain with no help from Google on that end and what help I could find was so hard to find that I ended up having to do a search just to find it. Apparently, it was not just me having those problems either. Quite a few people I know moved their blogs. There was quite a bit of content to move and I had quite a few readers on there that hopefully made the move with me.
If you are a reader from the old site, great to see you again and you probably already knew all of this!
That being said, even before those issues started I had thought about moving everything over here. Why? Well, in one of my posts I mentioned that I was working on a website to encompass my two blogs and to have the blogs there for quick updates and miscellaneous things that did not fit into categories. That would have been three things to keep track of! In case you have not noticed, I am a busy person and blogging is not my main job. WordPress allows me to have the blogs, and a functioning website all rolled up into one convenient little package! This means that I will only have one thing to keep track of which will take a lot of stress off of me and will make my updates more regular. It will also mean that you all do not have to switch back and forth between food blog and fashion blog. It will all be right here! In the end, it is a win-win for all of us!
