Repeat This With Me: Change is OK, Change is OK. (PLEASE READ for News on The Amazing Mess)

I hate endings.


I really do.


I love to start something new and work on it, but when I get to the end, I procrastinate.  I don't want it to end.  Whether this is just a personality trait or some irritating defense mechanism I have, I don't know....


But I do know that things are about to change.


For almost two years, I have shared on The Amazing Mess all my sometimes simple, sometimes messy, sometimes fun, sometimes stupid projects.  And I have loved it, and I have loved you.  And I have loved the name The Amazing Mess.


It suits me...it's my life. Sometimes amazing.  Sometimes messy.  Mostly both!


But I had to make a hard decision.  I'm moving all of this blog over to my Motherhood on a Dime blog.  It's been too much for me to have one blog over here (on Blogger) and another blog on Wordpress, and I've struggled with how to manage both of them.


This decision has been months in the making.  After tons of sleepless nights and tears, I finally came up with the idea that I could find a way to combine them.  This weekend, my sites will be down as we migrate everything over to Motherhood on a Dime.  There will be three sections:  Living (recipes, frugal tips, faith and DIY projects), Deals (all the coupons and good buys), and Kids (all of the posts from The Amazing Mess).


PLEASE!  DO NOT BE UPSET WITH ME OR LEAVE ME!!!  Nothing will really change except the name and the location of the blog.


1)  I will still post 2-3 crafts, activities, cooking or other projects per week.  If you currently get my daily email updates or RSS feed, it will still be the same -- just with a different title at the top for now:  MOAD's Amazing Mess (with MOAD standing for Motherhood on a Dime).  


2)  You will still ONLY GET my crafts and activities for kids in your emails or RSS feed!  I'm not forcing anyone to get deals or coupons or anything like that!  


I REPEAT:  Everything will be pretty much the same (you'll even be able to type in www.amazingmess.com and be redirected to my site)!  I'm not changing the content.  I'm just changing the name and location.


It's still been hard for me, because I love the name so much.  But rest assured, I will not be giving up the name anytime soon.  I have tons of ideas:  maybe a book series, an eBook or two, or whatever else I can dream up to do!  Hmm...the biggest problem will be to actually finish what I've started....  ;)


Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.  I really hope it will be a smooth transition.  You may not be able to access the site much throughout the weekend, but we should be up and running by Monday!
