Well Here We Go...

Here it is, officially the first post of the new blog. Well not technically the first, because the actual first is the last of the old blog. Confusing, right? Well when I got rid of all the old posts from "The Old Trousdell Five" to start "The New Trousdell Five" (that is a really ridiculous way of describing the exact same blog, I know) I kept the last post I wrote explaining what I was doing. Make sense? Probably not. Anyway, I digress. I do a lot of that.

I don't actually have much to say about "The New Trousdell Five" (last time I call it that, I promise). It did hurt a lot more than I expected to delete all of those posts, but there's no going back now! Really, it's not much "new" to the blog. The changes to the layout are subtle. As much as I wanted a BIG DRAMATIC CHANGE, I really liked how it looked before so I didn't want to change it for the sake of just changing it. So this is what we're left with. However, the tabs at the top got all new content so you can take a looksie at those. And there will be a new feature called "Tales from the Vault" that allows me to bring back old favourite posts, but with some context around them when I'm worried about them being misunderstood. That's about all I've got.

Publishing this post was the final step of my "The New Trousdell Five" implementation plan (whoops, just called it that again, and yes, I did create an actual implementation plan because I was a project manager after all). Time to start real writing, but that's not happening right now. Clearly.

  1. I have actually been meaning to contact you for a while now (instead of anonomously reading along) so isn't a giveaway the best time? Really though, I don't know how I found your blog but I have a 2-yo son who appears to be in a similar situation to Asher. He was full-term but had a stroke the day after his birth. Somedays everything is enough and good and somedays, well, somedays - some hours, some minutes - are very very tough. I am incredibly bolstered knowing that you guys are out there having good days (and hard days too). I can be stronger with knowing that.
