Sometimes, I Really am a Glutton for Punishment

--------------------------- ATTENTION READERS --------------------------- 
As of TODAY September 30th, I have changed my blog's URL to!!!  The old URL ( is NO LONGER ACTIVE!!! Please update any bookmarks or links to this blog accordingly!
--------------------------- ATTENTION READERS ---------------------------

As I have mentioned before, I have been actively working to make my blog more attractive, more pulled-together, more accessible, and pretty much more AWESOME all around. In reflection of that desire, I have added a new background, new social networks in this blog's name, new pages in the tabs at the top of the blog, and so on and so forth.  I have also been planning a super special blog post in a few days from now.  Seriously, it will blow your mind.

On top of all that, I am still a college student, and on in her LAST semester!  I have just made it through my first round of tests, and am busy running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to keep up with homework, blogging, social networking, laundry, chores, and taking care of my dog.  I am a very busy person, apparently! 


And now, on top of all those things, I am changing my blog's url.  I know what you're thinking.  You're thinking, "Catherine, that's just one small thing compared to everything else.  You change it, and you're done.  What's the problem?"

Well, let me tell you what the problem is.

FIRST - ALL of the links to my blog and its individual entries that I have posted on various social networking sits are now all INVALID.  I will have to repair all of those broken links.  It does not seem like a big deal, but let me remind you all that I post all of the "art" on my blog on a deviantArt account.  There are 129 links on individual submissions to go in, one at a time, and change.

SECOND - OTHER people who have linked to my blog will now have invalid links on their sites.  I can't just go in and change the url FOR them.  These links will probably remain invalid, and this is very sad news. =(
THIRD - People who read my blog, but don't "follow" me, or don't check very often will find that my blog has disappeared, without a trace.  How will they find me again if they do not follow me on any of my social networking sites? Hmmm????

So...If I have all these problems, then why am I still changing my URL?  Because "c10brook" is not relevant at all to my blog, excepting that it is derived from my name, but I don't expect any of you to see or understand that!

Seen-and-Said is a lot easier to remember than c10brook, and will make things tie together nicely in a strongly cohesive way. Think of it as a marketing scheme!

And so, here I am, writing a long post about this to avoid starting on the project ahead of me....correcting now-invalid links.  This will easily take hours.

Clearly, I am a glutton for punishment.

  1. Okay so 2 things:

    1) I fail at observation. So didn't pick up on "c10brook" until you basically pointed it out.

    2) I miss yoga and our group. :(

  2. Rissa, I miss yoga so much also!!! Jackie isn't even teaching it this semester! I e-mailed and told her that was not cool! lol.

  3. How do I subscribe to the RSS feed? On Christy's blog it was a snap - a link right on the front page. Yours - nada.

    AND, I don't like the way the comments work on this new page.

  4. Dad, I don't really know how you can subscribe to my RSS feed... I will look into it. Maybe I removed the button on accident? I don't know... I will try and fix it.

    I'm sorry you don't like comments in a pop up window. I guess I could go back to embedded comments...but I kinda like this better.... I'll think about it.

  5. I also preference the embedded comments, sine we're talking about it.

    Also, That's a high grade chicken young lady!

    Also I'm sure things will work out with your social networking being fixed. shame all your links had to break. I suppose the alternative of copying your blog and making a second identical one at a different address wasn't very appealing though.

  6. RSS link at top of page worked great! Hitting 'RSS' at the bottom of the page opened my two RSS readers and link pasted into MacMail no problem.

    Welcome to the address. When's the house-warming party at See-and-said? ;)
