Consolidation

For the last three years I have been writing at two blogs–this one and YourWildChild. The idea was to have personal stuff here (and lots of photos of the kids) for friends and family.

YourWildChild was meant to be activities and inspiration for connecting kids and nature. As you can imagine, there was a lot of crossover. I found myself debating whether a particular post went on this blog or that one. I sometimes posted about the same thing on both blogs, even though there are some readers who follow both.

As of today, I am shutting down YourWildChild. It’s been fun and I have made a lot of friends through it, but I’m having a hard time keeping a regular posting schedule. And so much of our personal life is about connecting with nature.

As TravelingMel readers, you’ll still see the ridiculous number of kid, wildflower, dog and river pictures. But, now you’ll also see gear reviews and environmental education activities.

If you look up at the top, I’ve added a tab for reviews and another for activities. I imagine, however, that most of our activities will end up on the main page. Slowly, I’ll be moving the 300+ YourWildChild posts over here. That should be a blast.

My three year anniversary at YourWildChild would be July 7. I’m kind of sad to see it go, but just as we are getting rid of things we don’t use or want in our house, it’s time to clean up my Internet stuff. It feels good to have a tidy online presence.

    Oh my gosh, Mel. I have no idea how you kept up with both for so long. Add a job and mothering in there…and oh yeah, didn’t you write a book not too long ago?

    Just glad you’re keeping one of the blogs going 🙂
