Ten Years!

Ten years ago today I started this blog. Happy Anniversary to me! 

So much has happened in those ten years. I got married. My mother died. I have become a fierce political activist because the current political situation is untenable. Not just in the United States, but the entire world.

I have recently been going through very old posts and WOW it is very clear that I didn’t have a clue about blogging or photography! I used to keep these posts up because I wanted to see how far I’d come but not anymore. I am embarrassed by them. 

So I have been deleting old posts with the worst photography and also the kind of posts that say: “I’ve been too busy to post but I’ll be back soon!” when in reality I was just too lazy to post! 

So many of the original photos have been ruined by the Great Photobucket Purge. They were originally removed by Photobucket, but then suddenly added back by Photobucket with huge, ugly watermarks on them. 

So I am still very slowly replacing some of the better ones. However, I have deleted over FIFTY posts! I can’t be bothered to replace the old watermarked posts with really bad photography anyway. However, I HAVE made PDFs of them with FireShot and also put the PDFs on flash drives. Now I can shudder over them in private.

So even though I did plan to stop posting here, I am fixing old posts, deleting some, and will update some others and post those HERE. 

I also have bunches of photographs that I have never posted and those will eventully be posted on my current blog, The Literary Lioness

Stay tuned!

Important Message from New Jersey Memories


I will not be adding new posts to this blog. I have decided to combine this blog with my other blog The Literary Lioness

For years I tried to write two blogs including the necessary social media accounts and it was just too much, especially since I had multiple social media accounts for TWO blogs, plus my personal accounts. This became overwhelming, especially after I became ill in the fall of 2015.

I also wanted to move to "self-hosted" WordPress, and I decided to only move one blog. I will post about New Jersey, books, writing and movies all in one place!

I will still be restoring photos to this blog that were removed during The Great Photobucket Purge. I will also occasionally update an old post with new material.

To find out more about moving my blog, I am writing about it in the About section of The Literary Lioness. You can now join me in my continuing blogging journey at The Literary Lioness!
