July 2018- Blog Updating: What should I focus on next?

I've been actively posting again over the last few weeks thanks to my renewed interest in the Sims.

This has got my hankering to do more updating in other areas of the blog with the goal of bringing my whole site up to date, and making some improvements on all the various pages.

Where should I start? What area would you like to see more posts and improvements in first?

June 2018- Lots of Sims Posts!

While I haven't been too active on the site lately, one particular blog has become very active over the past few weeks! 

I've been playing a ton of Sims recently, and of course, blogging about it. I've been playing a rotational game (so multiple households in the same save) and it has been doing an excellent job at holding my attention. 

The first post of the rotation story can be found here: Round 1: Summer, Liberty & Travis

February 2018

I started a new section! It focuses on my personal journey (self-care, depression, anxiety):


There has been quite a few posts on the Sims too:

August Update

In case you missed it, here is what happened on the wesbite in July:

I added a post about my August Set-up to the Bullet Journal Blog.

I failed to make any new posts about Cats, sadly. I should fix that soon. If there is anything you'd like to hear about, please leave a comment.

I did an article about Choosing an Agent for my WDW planning section. There will be no shortage of Disney posts in the future since we are less than 180 from our next trip!!!

I had four posts about Edith (If my Sim had a Bullet Journal) and one about the Misfortune Legacy.

There are two new sections to checkout as well under "Everything Else I Love".

The Chattering and Blathering blog where I can ramble about random things and my life.

And the Screenshot Let's Play blog for all my non-Sims Let's Plays.

The above two do not have RSS links posted yet, but I will do that shortly.

"If My Sim had a Bullet Journal Challenge" was mentioned in the official Bujo Newsletter!

My new Sims challenge that I'm currently beta testing with Edith got a mini shout-out in the form of a link in the most recent (July) official Bullet Journal newsletter!!!!

So exciting!!!

It wasn't a link to my blog, but to the Sims forum post I made. However, we did get quite a few new readers from it! (Welcome!)

If you haven't read Edith yet, you can start at the beginning here: If My Sim Had a Bullet Journal.

Tama Reawakening, Header, Disney Updates & the App

A few short updates:

- I finally changed the header so it's no longer fall. Yay! 

- I've downloaded the Square space blogging app. I can now do simple posts from my phone (like this one!)

- I'm also working on my Trip Report from Disney: http://www.crazycatnerd.com/disney/2017/2/6/just-keep-swimming-2017-our-day-1-adventure


Recent Posts

Life has settled back down somewhat and I've been trying to blog more often. Here are some recent posts you may have missed:

  • There's a story about a kitty named Mike that took up residency on our porch. If you haven't read any of it, you should start with Part 1. The most recent update is Part 5.
  • There's also a quick Disney update: Week 12.
  • Vincent's most recent update was in October, with Vincent Forgets to Pay the Bills
  • In the Everything Else category, I recently posted a list of amazing podcasts you should be listening to if you like Mystery and Horror. While the post was intended for Halloween, the podcasts are fabulous to listen to all year. Also, not all of them are scary...I ordered them in what I feel is there increasing level of scariness. So, people who frighten easily may still want to give the first couple a go. 

You can anticipate more updates on Mike, Disney and Vincent in the weeks to come. Oh, and Duffy & Shellie May have lots to share too. Please feel free to leave me comments with suggestions, recommendations, questions, or just saying "hi". 

Here's Some Deer

Thank you for your patience with my lack of posts. I appreciate how you continue to check the blog despite the slow production of new content. I've had some health issues recently get in the way of my productivity (coupled with a very busy schedule). I hope to do more post soon, as the days to my Disney trip are almost in the double digits, and I miss Vincent.

For now, here's a scene from my everyday life...I see these guys this close multiple times a day...this morning four were in my front yard while I was leaving for work. I snapped a picture a couple days ago of a set near our house while Jimmy was driving by.

New Posts

Here's where you can find some new content on the site:

Two new Countdown posts are on the Disney blog:

You can read about the Feline Fiber response diet, and how I still miss Harree on the Cats blog:

You can read the first episode of my new Sims Completion Challenge on the Sims blog:

You can read about what I'm nerding out about this month, and Pokemon Go in Everything Else:

I'm currently working on another Edward post. I also hope to show off some of my Disney Tsum collection soon.

Tales from RimWorld & RSS Feed Update

Just a couple of quick updates on the site. I've been posting the story from my first play through of the game "RimWorld"...The game has been described as a combination of Dwarf Fortress, Prison Architect and Firefly. It uses an AI storyteller device to create events, so every story is different (therefore, no spoilers!). I've been sharing the story of my first colony, and I have NO idea (or control over) where this is going. Here's part one: http://www.crazycatnerd.com/everythingelse/2016/8/8/tales-from-a-rimworld-part-1

Additionally, the wrong slug was listed on the first RSS Feed link to "Everything Else". It has been corrected, so you may need to update your RSS feed by clicking the link on the right sidebar.


I finally manage to get my own site, and now I have no time to update. Ack!

I've been missing it so much, and I have plenty of ideas of topics to post about. However, between starting a new job and the debacle of trying to sell our old home (in a different state), my time as been severely lacking. There is light at the end of this tunnel...

I did update the site to have the RSS feeds on the sidebar to the right. Now you can subscribe to whichever blogs you like. Subscribing to this one (Site News) will let you know when there have been some updates on the site, in general, so if you only wish to subscribe to one, that one is a nice option. You can also follow me on Facebook or Twitter to get updates.
