Yes, here I am!
Here at L.J. Diva, the official website.
For those who don’t know, I had my dear old Blogger blog migrated on Jan 21st, 2019. It’s the start of a new era for me. Ten years I was at blogger, ten years I had that blog, but, 2019 is my year to cut and cull.
Every year I cull some social media, some emails, some web pages. This year I will be culling massive amounts of email adds. I have emails for all of my websites and multiple adds for multiple reasons. Outlook, live, hotmail, gmail, ymail, they just have to go.
Over the next month I will be slowly culling all of my excess baggage, along with my weight, yep, on another diet, and hopefully, it will refine and define my online business so it is easier to deal with.
As for all of the blog posts here at L.J. Diva…
Well, they came over from Blogger. I will be updating or deleting some I no longer think are worthy of being here. Or, are just embarrassing and hideous and I no longer want around. 10 years worth aren’t really worth it in the grand scheme of things. And it’s a new start here on the new site for 2019.
For those who are new, when I started my blog it was called Bitchfest! I then changed it to A Bitchfest! Lovefest!, it was then Lady Jewels Diva, and in it’s final incarnation, it was L.J. Diva. When I started, I swore, so if you don’t like swearing, don’t go back. For those who don’t care, feel free. I blogged about a lot of things, some, received massive attention and scored many comments, but over the last five or so years, I’ve toned down and written more about publishing, writing, books and movies I’ve read. I don’t feel the need to comment on everything in the world anymore, only when I feel like it.
And, since migrating comes with issues, I only went through the last year’s worth of posts and fixed issues, any from 2017 and beyond, I’m not going to worry about, so ignore the horrible issues that came with migrating.
