I Have a New Blog!

Hello readers! I am really excited to announce that I have started a new blog. I have been unhappy with the aged Blogger platform for a long time. With my new website, came a new blog platform. I have already posted 4 new posts that I hope that you will enjoy. :)

The new platform is mobile friendly. I can design each page the way I see fit. I have really struggled with using images on Blogger. Perhaps it is just my old template? I don't know. But, I have been doing this 2011 and I don't want to restart it from scratch with a new template. The newer blogging platform is beautiful, user friendly, it resides on my website and it is more versatile. I don't need to rely on Google, either, which is very nice. If you don't use Blogger, you probably don't know what a headache it is to use tables and keep the code clean without any goofy, unintended breaks.

The new blog content will remain the same. I will write about what I love- jewelry, rocks and family. The tone remains the same. I plan to be blogging more often. I hope to be bringing content that is inspiring, educational and simply fun to read.

Here's the trade off- in order to stay up to date with my new blog you can use the Atom RSS feed. I realize that a lot of you probably don't have an RSS reader. If you are like me, you don't even know what it is. Well, I did some checking and found an easier way to stay updated with the latest post. It involves a tiny bit of work on your end.

1)  Go to https://ifttt.com/applets/147561p-rss-feed-to-email This is a very old and reliable free feed fetcher that delivers to your inbox.

2) Click "Turn On"

3)  Join free with the email address where you would like the blog notification to go to.

4)  It will ask for permission to send you email. Say OK.

5)  There will be 2 lines to fill in. Copy and paste my blog feed RSS URL: 

 http://www.telaformosa.com/blog.atom
Fill in both fields. (MAKE SURE YOU COPY OVER WHAT IS WRITTEN IN THE FIELDS!)

6) Click Save.

You are done. You can log out. Now you will get an email when a new post goes live. You won't have to be logged in to get it. The link that will be emailed to you for my post will be a short url.

Not too much trouble. Now that you have an account, I urge you to explore what they offer. I know you'll find something cool and/or useful.

When you visit my new blog, you can use the friendly, modern comments system- Disqus. You do not need to be a member. It has a few more bells and whistles. If you comment anonymously and you want me to know who you are, be sure to leave your first name. I - as always - enjoy your comments immensely and love to hear from you. :)

That's it. I hope to see you over in my new adventure.
