Helping women with chronic illnesses

Three Days To New Blog!

My new blog launches June 1st (which is also my 1 year blogoversary)!

Three more days until the move to this blog’s new home!

I have been spreading the word in various places: twitter, my YouTube channel, MyBlogLog, Facebook, etc.

I could use all the help I can get spreading the word about my blog’s move! So, please consider retweeting my twitter message or sharing my Facebook links. Every little bit helps. I would really appreciate any help I can get spreading the word about this move happening June 1st. Thank you!

If you don’t have a gravatar set up, please see this site:

By setting up a gravatar, your picture will appear on my new blog (i.e. when you comment on the new blog)… rather than a default image appearing to represent you). I’m still getting used to my new blog but I believe this will cause you to link back to your own site too (much the same as your Google profile links to your blog).

There will be a learning curve for me with this new blog; I’ll need your patience while I get used to my new home.

Don’t forget… there will be blog giveaways in the early days of the blog. So stay tuned!

I’ll reTweet you! Will give me a great exercise in learning how to do that.

If you need any help retweeting, you just let me know. I just won 3rd place in a tweeting contest you know.

You got the TweetDeck installed, right? I think you said you did. This will give you a chance to really try it out. ๐Ÿ™‚



3 Jannie FunsterNo Gravatar { 05.30.09 at 2:15 pm }

Jeanne, and I just won third prize in the local carrot-peeling contest. We are both winners, aren’t we?! And oh my goodness, you put me on your blogroll. I am very honored. And humbled. Thank you!

It’s looking so great here. Am proud of you and happy for you with your blog switch-over. I’m sure you’ll be happy with WordPress and I will help you in any way I can. (I’m such a pro, with 7 months under my blogging belt now!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

One day until launch! I snuck in here a day early – hope you don’t mind.

Jeanne, just so happy for you! Congratulations.

Wait, make that 8 months under my blogging belt now!! ๐Ÿ™‚

5 JeanneNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 5:28 am }


Ooooh! You tricky little stinker… getting a sneak preview! For the record, readers, I did not give Jannie the link. She just slyly figured it out. (I have been copy/pasting comments for the last couple of days from the Blogger blog to this one. I had signed in as Jannie – thus comment 1 listed above – and Jannie then traced things back here. Jannie, you’re too smart for your own good.

So please don’t anyone think they were left out on a sneak preview. Jannie made her own sneak peek. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, Jannie we are winners. You crack me up. Yes, silly goose. You’re listed but it’s not really my blogroll (which is much lengthier and located on the blogroll page). YOU are part of my “healing posse”. You catch the Tori reference there? (American Doll Posse, 2007). Anyway, you are in my posse.

I’m glad you like it. I owe oodles and oodles of thanks to Cassie Germsheid of Mamas On The Web.

She has toiled tirelessly over this blog!

I’m sure I’ll be happy with WordPress too. Yes, I’ll take all the help I can get. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just 7 months, really? No way! You’ve had WordPress the whole time I’ve followed you and that seems like at least that long. Wow! You had Blogger before that, right? Man, your blog looks more than 7 months old. Wow! You must be a quick study! ๐Ÿ™‚

Launch is imminent. Shame on you for sneaking in early. I realize I don’t have those special fences and security cameras you have at your compound to keep the paparazzi away from you in wake of your CD release but, geez, I didn’t know you were going to break in here! Haha. Now I know to watch out for you!!

Anyway, thank you so much! It’s very exciting. Cassie Germsheid of Mamas On The Web has worked very, very hard on this site and I am very grateful to her!!


6 JeanneNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 5:47 am }


Well, which is it? 7 mos or 8? You’re confusing me. It must be all that fame from your new CD has rushed to your head and impaired your counting skills. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Heehee!



7 AlexNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 5:56 am }

Down to 2 days now, how exciting!!!

8 JeanneNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 5:58 am }


Thank you! It is exciting!

I wish you the very best of luck on Monday’s surgery and my thoughts will be with you!!

Best of luck!


9 ShaunaNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 6:14 am }


Countdown….3..2..and WHAM! I can not wait to see your new blog!!!

Take a rest, IF you can… (lol) before the blog launching takes place.

Hope you are getting some much-needed rest.

Gentle Hugs,

P.S. I need to learn all about Tweeting…been signed up, just haven’t found the extra time I need to just be able to sit down for a moment and type out a few characters!! But now right now Jeanne…not over here!! xoxxoxo

10 JeanneNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 6:18 am }


Yes, it’s getting down there!!

Countdown is almost over now!

I can not wait for people to see either.

Rest? What’s that? A 4 letter word that starts with an “R”… I can see what. But what does it mean exactly?

Ohhhh, is that the nice, peaceful, rejuvenating thing I’ve heard about?? Hmm. That’s going to have to wait a tad longer for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just kidding. Actually, I was so tired earlier today that I just totally crashed for several hours. So my body is making sure I get rest whether I want to stop or not. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s just say that while Hubby drove the car today, I fell asleep. Then when we got home, he had GREAT difficulty waking me up.

After that, I stumbled into the house and crashed some more. So… don’t worry. I’m getting rest. (Though clearly not at the right hours as the telltale timestamp here will soon reveal. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sending gentle hugs your way,


P.S. Tweeting is easy. Don’t be intimidated by it. You’ll pick it up easily. I used to do it from web but now I use TweetDeck (a million times better). I should warn you, though, that TweetDeck can be a bit of a memory hog.

11 Jannie FunsterNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 12:48 pm }

Hey hey, it’s me, The Sneak. (And you can sing that to the tune of “The Streak.”) Actually in one of your e-mails I got your new blog’s name. Bet you didn’t even realize.

Anyway – nice endo button!

Yep 8 months for the blog I now have. September 22nd will be my one year anniversary for it. Here was my first post on WordPress.

I was with before. They suck!

But you don’t.

12 JeanneNo Gravatar { 05.31.09 at 8:02 pm }

Hey there Sneak… I mean Jannie!

Oh yes they call her the sneak. She is anything but meek. It is laughs she does seek. She needs some twitter practice for her beak. She is so not a geek. Nor is she a freak. She just likes to give new blogs a leak. She simply wanted a peek. Her resistance to temptation was weak. ๐Ÿ™‚

I shouldn’t pick on you. If the tables were turned, I can’t say that I’d be able to resist peeking myself! ๐Ÿ™‚

For the last couple of days, I have been manually copying comments that were put on the Blogger blog because the posts had all been transferred over here already. The only way I could think to do it (other than logging in here as me and saying so & so said xyz) was to login as the person leaving the comment!

So since I knew your blog address and email address, I just logged in here (as if I were you) and pasted your comments from the old blog in here.

Yes, I knew doing so would probably generate an email to you. However, I needed to get the comments posted and it was actually a nice chance for me to test things out with the gravatars and such.

The difference between you and the handful of other people I posted comments for is you followed up by posting comments here directly yourself! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, are those other few people pretending they haven’t taken a sneak peek? Or did they really not pull up the link from the automated email? I’m not sure.

All I know is you were my first real, live comment with this because no one else has commented yet (whether they have found the site or not… I do not know).

Yes, your endo button for the petition works great here! Thank you!! Just perfect!

Wow! I can’t believe it’s only 8 months that you’ve been on your blog. You’ll have to remind me in September about your blogoversary.

I just loved that picture with the songwriting trophy. Too cute.

Anyway, hope I didn’t give you too hard of a time for commenting early. You are absolutely correct that when I logged in to copy comments I was opening the door for automated emails to do their thing. I should probably be surprised that you were the only one to pop in early!

Anyway, I’m happy to have you as the first official commenter.

Jasmineโ€™s last blog post..A question from Carolyn

15 Jannie FunsterNo Gravatar { 06.01.09 at 6:00 am }

Dude, it’s June 1st . YOU DID IT!!!!

Well, of course, you actually did it a few days ago.

And sneeky-peeky me was the first commentor. Hopefully you don’t have to bring over any more comments? That must be really time-comsuming.

And your rhymes above are the funniest, funniest things!

And look at you with Comment Luv. You are sooooo gonna rock this blog, Jeanne.

And you know what?? YOU, young lady, have a beautiful new wonderful fresh blog start. I know there were a couple negative things happen to you on the old blog when “the unenlightened ones” commented and wreaked general emotional and societal havoc. But you stuck it out. Jeanne. Stuck to your guns. And did your very best to keep on keeping on.

Now it’s all shiny and new over here and it’s great, you will NOT regret this switch. I was a little fearful when I left the comfortable bosom of my old blog without comments but it’s been the third best thing of my life. Jim one. Kelly two. Well, my new blog was maybe 4th. I’d say 3rd was getting my new carrot peeler.

Well, you are REALLY kicing some WordPress butt over here. I mean it! It’s amazing what you’ve done. Smart girl. Trial and error, eh? Now, as soon as you figure out how to make the aroma of baking brownies blast from your blog would you please let me in on the formula??

Again, LOVED the rhymes, you fellow funsteress you! My Tweet beek, eh??

Thank you! Cassie does great work. It’s exciting!


17 JeanneNo Gravatar { 06.01.09 at 8:59 am }


Thank you! So glad you made it back safely from your long trip. I still think it’s too cute that you were checking my blog progress from your trip in Argentina! ๐Ÿ™‚


18 JeanneNo Gravatar { 06.01.09 at 9:22 am }


Yes, I DID IT! I must say that I DID IT with mucho help from Cassie Germsheid of Mamas On The Web. She’s awesome. True, this didn’t happen all at once. That’s for sure. This has been in the works for awhile.

Yes, you figured out how to be sneaky and be the first commentor. There were a fair number of comments to transfer over just in a couple of days. I’m glad I’m done with that part. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m glad you like my rhymes. My readers are used to me being far more serious than that but, what can I say, you bring out the silly in me. (That’s good, by the way. Everyone needs their silly moments). I’m glad you thought they were funny.

The CommentLuv credit goes to Cassie. She set that up today. Yes, I’m sooooo gonna rock this blog.

Yes, I do have a fresh start. I like that. There will always be some of those “unenlightened” moments you referred to. That’s all part of it.

Yes, it’s shiny and new. I definitely will not regret the switch. It will take me some time to get used to, of course, since it’s very different than what I’m used to. However, time will take care of that.

You and that carrot peeler! ๐Ÿ™‚

While I have done some nosing around WordPress and learning new things, I have to give huge credit to Cassie for walking me through so much. I did do trial & error until I got that endo button of yours to work. That took some doing but I finally got it!

I’m working on the brownie thing. I’ll let you know!

Glad you LOVED the rhymes. Thank you for queening me a funsteress. My goodness, what an honor. Yes, your tweet beek.
