i started this blog in may of 2005. it was an interesting time in my life, one of transition and change. i enjoyed having a place to put my thoughts and a forum to share my ramblings, photos and scrapbook pages with family and friends.
the state of our economy has me, along with the majority of america, thinking about ways to scale back and simplify. i haven't been posting here much and the $9.00 a month, while not an extravagance by any means, has become an uneccessary expense. there are plenty of blog hosts available for free*. also, typepad recently changed it's posting format and, frankly, i can't stand it. it's not user friendly, is slow and i can't be bothered to wrestle with it the few times i do post.
many, many thanks to those of you who have followed this blog along, either from the beginning or for snippets of time along the way.
many thanks for commenting and sharing your thoughts and encouragement.
it's time to move on...
"snapshots of my life" will be officially closed down at the end of april 2009.
