A Slow but Necessary Transition


Hi Everyone! Famous Ashley Grant here with an exciting update- well exciting to me... slowly, but surely I'm transitioning this blog to my new home on Wordpress. After some Blogger woes I decided it was time to make the leap and I also was excited to get a new domain dropping the word "THE" from this website to make it just Famous Ashley Grant rather than THE Famous Ashley Grant. So, with that said I'm moving all of my posts over there and then ultimately this site will auto- redirect to the new one. I know I could have just copied and pasted everything with an easy method folks have told me about, but there is a reason I'm taking the painstakingly slow route. The simple fact is there is a lot of stuff on this current website I'm ready to delete and so...I am. Plus, due to some photography issues there are a lot of images that have either been deleted or need to be deleted so going through the posts one by one is helping me figure out what I still want to keep and what doesn't serve me anymore. So, for new posts please visit the new site at Famous Ashley Grant! I look forward to making my new website everything I wanted in my personal blog :)

30 Bloggers in 30 Days - Day 19

 

Today's blogger is Zakary Watson of Raising Colorado. Here's her "about" statement from her facebook page: "I would like for my children to go to bed at a decent hour, learn to make homemade tortillas, and ride around with a squirrel in my bicycle basket. Also, someone find a cure for Type One Diabetes, kthx."

I can't help but like her blog simply because she likes squirrels. Check this out from her FAQs:
"1. What’s with you and the squirrels?
I dig squirrels. Mainly a black squirrel that lived in my old backyard and ate the bread I threw into my yard....He’s a squirrel genius and possibly a ninja. In training. My goal is to get him (or any squirrel really) to sit in a basket on my bicycle while we ride around town at the Farmer’s Market and stuff."

LOL. Love that! Check out Zakary's blog HERE!

30 Bloggers in 30 Days - Day 16

 

Today's blogger shout out is of Anjali Handa of Rock That Look. Now, when I met her she was blogging on the regular at Rock That Look. Curious as to why there haven't been posts since February I dug a little deeper by visiting her on twitter and learning that the girl is BUSY! I mean DAYUM! She is Editor in Chief of Beyond the Drop which is "a site dedicated to bringing you coverage on the music, fashion, lifestyle, and technology associated with Dance Music culture". I imagine if I was editor in chief of a site like that I'd be too busy to keep up with my personal blog too. So, today you get a two-fer. Check out Anjali's personal blog HERE and the blog that is keeping her busy HERE!

30 Bloggers in 30 Days - Day 15

 

Today's blogger is Norine Dworkin-McDaniel aka Chief of Scientific Snarkiness at Science of Parenthood. Love that don't you?!? Chief of Scientific Snarkiness . That is just awesome on so many levels!

The first line of the website's "about me" page sums up all you need to know about the site: "Science Of Parenthood is an illustrated parenting humor blog inspired by the madness of raising kids, which not even science can explain."

Even though I don't have kids, I particularly liked her Mommy Math posts!

You should definitely check out the blog HERE!

30 Bloggers in 30 Days - Day 14

 

Today's blogger is Stephanie Liebold of Travel Craft Journal. "Travelcraft Journal is made for creative adventurers who want to discover new places, experience culture, try things out themselves.

It’s a place to read about travel tips, DIY/crafting experiments, quirky road trips, art, food, and sights to see in Phoenix and beyond. We take a pragmatic approach that acknowledges that things rarely go exactly as planned. It’s about embracing the journey and savoring the moment instead of stressing about constructing a perfect day, meal, or project."

Check out her blog HERE. It's only fair to warn you though. Reading her blog will make you want to travel more...and possibly journal. Not sure about the journaling part, but definitely the traveling! Enjoy!
