So this girl walks into a blog… (and makes a BIG announcement)

While it may appear as though I’ve been missing on the blogging scene – the truth is that I have had my hands ALL OVER it; just in the background.

Here is a brief re-cap:

(announcement is at bottom – pls read through)

Creating and designing the BlissDom ’09 Conference site. (with huge gratitude to Daisy Olsen, our BD web developer extraordinarie, who does the tough stuff with coding):

blissdom conference

I’d like to pretend that I just *poof* created it, but the fact of the matter is that I’ve been up until 3:30 AM the past two nights; tweaking and “just-so-ing”.

Redesigning the look of the Blissfully Domestic site (to clarify – I didn’t code the site or anything like that– I just created the pretties and directed the placement for it; again, Daisy does the tough stuff and hand-coded the entire site):

Gave it a fresh, clean, professional look.

and my BIG Announcement?

My new BABY: My new site – Modern Media Mom:

modern media mom

I am so excited about this site. I will still be blogging and being generally silly here at Looking Towards Heaven, but Modern Media Mom is where I will put all of my techy stuff.

From the About page:

What if there were a place where those of us who want to simplify, organize and influence could find out about the latest sites, applications and gadgets without having to open our Geek-to-plain english dictionary?

Modern Media Mom is that place.

I’m still tweaking, but I’m just so darn excited about it, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to launch and announce it. But this past week has shown me that it’s all just going to pass me by – so I’m jumping right into it.

And guess what?? I’ve created it with all of you in mind. Read the About page to find out exactly what it is about. And why the tagline is “Using the internet to get the most out of your life.”

So see – I haven’t totally been slacking recently.

… but now I need a nap.
