Still Just Me, Emily

Notice something different?

Excuse me while I go into flight-attendant mode and explain the changes you’re (fingers crossed) seeing:

My cute friend Meliss and I would like to welcome you aboard, the new home of Just Me, Emily.

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for choosing Just Me, Emily. As we prepare to take off on a new reading experience, let me direct your attention to a few features. (I didn’t have time to put this info. on a card in the seat pocket in front of you. Sorry.)

First, you’ll notice that the address of this blog has changed. Instead of the old, cumbersome, you are now joining us at (Flight attendants usually don’t request applause, but would you mind fastening your seatbelt and humoring me with a clap or two … or three? I own! Wahoo! I feel fairly official now. I think I will celebrate with a package of peanuts.)

A wonderfully tech-savvy friend helped me redirect all of the content from our starting point ( to our final destination (, so you shouldn’t have to worry at all if you’ve linked to my content or bookmarked this blog.

Second, you will notice the snazzy new site design. It has more leg-room for all of the widgets, links, lists, gizmos, sprockets and Internet-age technology I’ve been dreaming of. I need to make a gazillion tweaks, updates and improvements, but I’ve determined that enough of the pieces are in place to make reading safe. (However, I can’t make any guarantees. If you notice wings falling off or propellers stalling, leave a comment and let me know.)

This blog is still under construction. We haven’t reached a comfortable cruising altitude yet, so please remain seated. I promise to make up for any turbulence in Ginger Ale and Biscoff cookies.

If you’re feeling confused or motion sick, please remember that the content of this blog won’t be throwing you for any (intentional) loops. I will continue to post my random, silly, thoughtful, heartfelt stories and insights.

The scenery is changing, but I remain Just Me, Emily.

      Thanks, cute girl!

    Oh my goodness, I LOVE this look!!! I am completely inspired, Emily. I have had the same look since I debuted my blog in Dec. 2010. I know I REALLY need to update it. I have had lots of offers to help me in that department, but I have been focused on my writing (and getting a book deal) that I have let that go. You have me thinking this might be something I need to do sooner than later. Change is SO hard for me. And technology is SO hard for me. Maybe that is why I struggle so much with updating the blog!
    I look forward to seeing what else progresses for you!!!

      You are adorable, Rachel! I loved reading your latest post and learning about your book deal. I had no idea! I can’t wait to read every single page.

    Too cute! And quite ironic that I read this while sitting in an airplane waiting to take off!

      How funny! I hope you’re off to somewhere sunny.

    Love the new blog. We need to chat about where you got the design, etc. It’s great!
