Changes in 2016

I have decided to start a new blog in 2016 and wanted to let you know now, so that it wouldn't come as too much of a suprise when the time comes.  

My meme Today's Flowers will also be at my new blog.

An important reason for the change is that many of you have let me know that you have had a hard time leaving comments, and also that it takes a long time to load the pages.  I started thinking that because this is seven years' old and there are many, many, many photographs on here, many, many pages, this may be the reason why things are slowing down.  

I have also read that how I have set my comments may also be an issue.  Embed, pop-up, full-page.  I am not sure if this is the case and this is not the only reason for my decision.  It just seemed to be the right time to start afresh.

My new blog will be called "An English Girl Rambles 2016", and will be the forerunner to subsquent blogs every year, for as long as I can keep going.  

You can take a look here.

I will be repeating this message on the last day of December.

Thank you Friends!


  1. Best wishes with your new blog, and for the Holiday Season... Merry Christmas!

  2. Well it's all going to be so exciting Denise !
    I've tried endless times to leave a comment, with no luck, but today I was able to type away in your comment box !?
    I'll be popping in to say hello at your new digs !
    Wishing you and Greg and family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  3. Merry Christmas and I'm looking forward to checking out your new blog!

  4. Hope it works for you, Denise! Happy Holidays.

  5. Okay! Just don't close this blog down- that sort of thing can lead to spammers hijacking it.

  6. Merry Christmas to you and your family !

  7. I like your tree and those beautiful white doves. have blog will travel to your new one as soon as you tell us to.. do you resize your photos before uploading? that would cause slowness. i for one have never had a problem with your blog at all..

  8. Remember me? Thought I would just pop in and wish you the compliments of the season.
    Believe it or not I had totally forgotten about my blogs until someone posted on it today.
    Perhaps I will get it up and running in the new year.

  9. Merry Christmas Denise and I will be checking on your new blog.
