Cue trumpet fanfare - the new blog is unveiled

Thanks to the efforts of the lovely Tasha and my colleague Helen, I now have a brand spanking new blog that will track my countdown to my sailing adventure.

It is www.moretolifethanlaundry.com. It's still a work in progress and I've yet to add everyone to my blogroll but I'm too excited about it to not post the link. I will hopefully have a little logo thingy that anyone who wants to help promote the blog can have for their blog - otherwise please just add the link to your blogroll and spread it around so that I get lots of people going to it, which will hopefully convince me to get more corporate sponsors signing up.

And of course if you fancy sponsoring me, but all means feel free to click the Paypal donate button and let me know if it works!

Hopefully I can still keep this blog up to date too but the focus for the next while is going to be on Moretolifethanlaundry. I will hopefully have a subscribe button on it soon too.

Ironically, I must now sign off to go do a vast pile of laundry. Go figure.

I have just been for dinner with expateek and am too full of curry and coca cola to do anything useful now, but if I am not too busy murdering the children tomorrow I will surely come and poke around and link and pay etc.

Good luck and I will definitely pop by!

There is more to life than laundry? Why didn't they tell me?

I've had a quick look but I'll wait until you've got your feed up and running to add it to the blogroll b/c my blogroll uses a feed. It looks really cool. I think you're amazing!

Ali said...

Strike that, I put it in and you do have a feed! Go me, sorry. ;)

You're On! I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!
I would be jealous except I'd be terrified and puking every 3 minutes if it was me on the boat. Sorry I'm not coming? I'm envious of the adventure and time off though.
Just going to put you on my blogroll now and will find a way of mentioning it next time I post.

tried to comment on your new blog but it wouldn't let me - said I had to log in on wordpress (I think as you as I am already logged in as me). Might want to fix that little hitch - could it be part of the wordpress skin you're using? Or need a new comment form plugin/widget or whatever?
Now I can't remember what it was I was going to say, anyway. Obviously wasn't very interesting.
Oh wait. I know.
I think you should TWITTER on that site and get traffic that way.

Thanks all - Mothership, I'll look at those issues and get the blogroll set up. I am such a techno illiterate and am finding wordpress far more complicated than blogger. But hopefully it'll all be sorted soon!
