Welcome to The Hip Mothership!
First, sign up to the right under “Mothership by email” to have my blog posts emailed directly to you. I will no longer send email updates.
Have you signed up yet? Great!
So why the new blog you ask? Hosting my own blog (as opposed to a free Blogger or WordPress site) gives me much more flexibility in terms of blog features, like adding a customized header for example. Also, now I’ll own the content, which means I can easily post videos and pictures to my website.
A little about the new blog: As you see, I have a whole new banner with the alien mothership on top and silhouettes of my kids. Yep, those are my kiddos! Also, to the right you’ll notice buttons to my social media sites. If you are a fan of the Mothership, please take a moment to “Like” my new Hip Mothership Facebook page. And, I can’t wait to see who my very first Twitter follower will be….
As a blogger, developing a robust readership is really important. If you like a certain post, please share it with your friends by clicking “Like” or “Tweet” at the bottom of the post.
Thank you all for supporting me, my family and my blog over the years. It has been really fun to write and share and hear your feedback. Reading your comments are a big part of the blogging experience, so thank you.
I can’t wait for this next phase of blogging. I feel a little bit anxious about putting myself and my thoughts out there openly to the public, but this is the information generation, and this is how it is done.
“Go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.” — Jimmy Carter
From now on, all posts will be published to my new website, www.thehipmothership.com.
Until next time, the Mothership is signing off.
P.S. – all of the writing in the tabs (About The Mothership, About The Passengers) is new. Also, check out the video link where Chris posted a cool skateboarding video of the kids.
