I know what you're saying -- buying a new place? In this down market?
Or consider the words of my wife, when I suggested that moving from the Blogspot site was like moving from an apartment to a place of my own, who said, pleadingly, "But a house is so much work!" (We speak from experience.) I then suggested that maybe it was more like moving into a townhouse, with a monthly maintenance fee.
The real reasons are a little bit of vanity ("my own website") and a lot of reader ease. By using categories, I hope to make it easier for readers to find specific areas of interest (e.g., records for 4-year-olds, or lullabyes). I'm also hoping the site's a little more stable away from the Blogger servers.
Of course, as of this writing, I've still got a long ways to go to move all the posts from the old site over here and to build back the rest of the links. But I'm getting there.
Thank you very much to all of you who've stopped by, be it once or a hundred times. I hope this site (wherever it resides) in some small way helps you and the kids in your life connect through the joyful noise of music.
