EUREKA... OR SHOULD I SAY YIKES!!!


Welcome to everyone who has joined The Over 40 Blogging World group on Facebook. If you haven't joined yet you can find out all about it here. When Jen and I talked about finding a way to bring older bloggers together we had no idea just how much of a need there was. In the first 24 hours of the group, we had over 45 people join. We are so excited, because it is such a great way to meet new blogging friends in our age niche. I personally have already started to make new friends and to learn new things, which makes me very happy.

Jen and I are furiously working together through the wonderful world of the internet, as she is in British Columbia and I am in Kentucky, to bring you so much more. It is all so wonderful, but we do of course have kinks to work out and planning to do. We know you will be right there with us and we are so grateful for that. 

There have been a couple of people who have said they have applied to join the group, but I can't find them. Trust me, there has been no one that we have turned down, so if you aren't showing up please apply again or let me know and we will figure it out. 

The other business at hand is that my blog is now officially simpleandsereneliving.com. I am so happy to have made the transition to the new format. I will not be changing what I write about so I hope you will stay with me while I hopefully bring new readers on board. 

Some of you have asked how I went about changing my URL. I am going to write a post about that tomorrow. Hopefully it will answer your questions so that you can make your own changes if you want. If I could do it I know you can too. 

Life is so good. It is amazing how things can change so quickly. I am keeping myself in the flow of serenity as things evolve and feeling gratitude.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I hope that the group will prove beneficial to everyone who has joined. I know that we each need different things from it, and I hope we are able to touch on all of those things.

  3. I'm happy for Jen and you. This community is led by two interesting women. It is a pity that I' m not over thirty yet. Not that far from 40 though ...
    Anyway, take care

    1. Reading my comment today I couldn't help laughing I'm over 30 but I'm not 40 yet is what I meant to type. Man, these crazy working hours are draining of my energy and everything else such as a clear and functional brain.
      Anyway I'm sure all the women joining this group are in for some nice time.

  8. Laura, how is the unpacking going in the new URL, it's a beautiful name. And I too am thrilled that so many bloggers are joining in the Over 40 Blogging World...what a fun group, and I am so looking forward to meeting more as it goes along.

    I wish that you had written that tutorial a long time ago...I could have used it.

  9. It's great to hear that you're in a good place right now! I received an invitation to join that group but I haven't seen anything more about it. I signed in to join it. I guess I need to go back and check to see if I can view it now. I think it's a great way to connect to other women with similar issues. Congrats on getting your blog name switched over too!
