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!



Hillbilly’s New Project

Now that don’t sound like me at all, does it?? I mean, a new project? Me?? Puhleaze!!

Seriously, though, when you get over your shock and wipe the tears of merriment from your eyes and are able to focus properly on your screen again ….

If you have never heard of the software from Google, called Sketchup, you’re missing out. Well, you are if you like to work in 3D environments building things. If you don’t care for that kinda stuff, then well, there’s just something wrong with you.

Let your perceptive little eyes wander up to the top of this page, where the menu lives. There you will notice a brand new link called “My Sketchup Projects”. Now, there’s not a lot there right now because I just started it last night, not working with Sketchup but the site. I’ve been using Sketchup off and on for a few years, but recently my interest in it has flared up again, and we all know what that means … A brand new blog for the hillbilly!!

Please, you can stop rolling your eyes and shaking your collective heads now. Hey, look at it this way, I care enough about all my followers to share all of my adventures with you. Now you gotta admit, that’s pretty darn sweet of me.

So, if ya care to, click on that link up there and just go check it out. You can either follow that blog, which would be so totally awesome of you to do, or get to it from here, which would be nice but not nearly as awesome. Also, for your convenience, and because I’m so nice and all, I have created a “Front Door Blog” here on WordPress.com. You could follow that one too, it won’t have everything on it but it will update when I update the real blog. You can find that one here.

So, there you have it. You can thank me later 😉
