Well Here It Is

It pains me to have to do this, but alas. Google just isn’t cooperating with us bloggers at the moment. It keeps taking away our services slowly one by one by one. With the loss of Google Reader we’ve lost a whole world of interaction which is half of the point of blogging so… here I am.

Hello new Bloggies!! A little bit about myself and what this blog will entail. I am Kelli Hale. Wife, mom, novelist, freelance writer, and blogger. I started blogging waaaaaay back in 2008 before it was the chic popular thing to do on MySpace. Yes, I know it was lame and a terrible mistake to be using MySpace as a platform for my blogging, but that’s why I didn’t stick around for long. In 2009 I migrated over to Blogger where I was completely happy, and very well connected to the blogging community, UNTIL Google started being obnoxious and deleting all of the services that integrated Blogger into the awesome that is Google. First it was FriendConnect, then most recently it was Reader. Basically unless you were a user of Blogger you could no longer interact with your followers or find new blogs to read. I was very sad to leave especially since I had been blogging there for years and had gained many friends as well as quite a few followers.

But, it had to be done. The more and more I kept putting it off the harder and harder it was becoming to start fresh. So alas, here I am. I will try my best to import some of my favorite and previous blog posts to give you all a bit of flavor to the House of Hale. It’s nice to meet all of you! Until later Bloggies. 🙂
