A New and Little Bit Different Blog

Hello good and faithful followers and readers of The Hillbilly Blogger. It has been quite some time since I have made a meanigful post here.

A lot has happened in my life since that time. I’ve had a lot of health issues, I lost my mom in January, I’ve been bustin’ my butt tryin’ to find a job that I can do from home, which I finally have done and a few other things that have been and still are goin’ on.

I’ve had a lot of time to do a lot of thinkin’ and make a few life changes since mom’s passing. I’ve had to re-think and re-purpose my life since then and it has not been, and still isn’t, an easy road to travel.

I start my job Monday, well actually it’s orientation week and I will only work for two hours a day the first week but it’s not gonna be bad because I’ve done a job like it before, I just have to learn their system.

Anyway, I’m gonna retire The Hillbilly Blogger offically. I’m not gonna take it down but I won’t be posting here anymore after this. I’ve kinda grown in my blogging world, branched out you might say into video and and podcasting as well as writing.

I’ve had a good run with THB, met a lot of good people and I’m hoping you’ll follow me over on my new and final blog, which will have all of the aforementioned methods of blogging all rolled into one neat little package. (And it’s not self hosted this time)

The link to the new blog is Whispers from the Holler, it will resemble THB in that I will be posting about growing up in the mountains, hills, and hollers of the Appalachian Mountains and in this little coal town I live in.

I’ve really just started it so there are only a few posts on there right now, I’m still settling in as it were, gettin’ things fixed up. I’m not in no big hurry and I will only be posting when something inspires me to do so. Something like a memory or a person I once knew or perhaps a place or places I frequented growing up.

Some stories you may have already read, or parts may be familiar to you if you’ve followed along with THB, mainly because some stories will be the same, just written differently and with a somewhat different perspective. As I said, a lot has happened since my last real post here.

And also like I mentioned, I would love to see all my friends and followers from here at THB over on Whispers from the Holler. If you liked the stories here, I’m pretty sure you’re gonna love the new one.

So check it out, follow along, spread the word and I hope to see a lot a familiar faces and names soon. If you choose not to just let me say that it has been a real priviledge knowing you, writing for you and sharing bits and parts of my life with you.

I will be following the your blogs from Whispers from the Holler from THB, so be on the look out for a new follower soon.

Again, thank you and I hope to see you soon!


Guess What?

After posting my last post, I went researching. What I found out was the fact that I was right about recipe blogs/web sites.

So, in my infinite hillbilly wisdom, I have decided to open a dedicated web site for recipes. I’m going to gather all of the recipes I already have on the other two recipe blogs I started and put them all on the new one and go from there.

In fact, I’ve already started it. I’m working on the blog/site locally on my computer and once my new domain propagates I’ll migrate it from local hosting to the web hosting.

It still gonna be called FatBoy’s Recipes but I am completely redoing the whole thing from the base code up. It’s gonna have a brand new structure and I’m trying my best to make it as interactive as possible instead of having just a static site that people go to, look at and then leave.

I’m gonna network the crap out of it and call on a couple of my friends here to help out with getting it out there.

I want this new venture to be a success. I’m basically putting everything I have into it and using all the knowledge I have gained over the last few years of building blogs, web sites and blogging in general.

If it goes as planned, it’s gonna be a fun journey. One that I hope my followers here will join me on. After all, who doesn’t like recipes?
