Big changes for A Life Aboard

For the last few years, A Life Aboard has found a welcoming home at the Bangor Daily News. The community of bloggers and support from BDN has been fantastic and I have learned a lot! Nonetheless, the time has come, that I have decided to migrate back to my personally hosted site, which can be found here.For those of you who regularly read my posts, thank you! It’s a great joy to interact with readers through comments and messages. I hope that you will all consider heading over to my new location and re-subscribing so that you continue to receive updates (you can find the subscription form in the upper right sidebar). Unfortunately, I am unable to automatically¬†do this for you.This will be a big change for A Life Aboard as it means totally rebuilding all of the hard work of the last few years at BDN so your support in the transition is greatly appreciated!

I’d like to thank the BDN for hosting me, and most of all, Sarah Cottrell of Housewife Plus for her guidance along the way.

Here’s to a fresh blogging start!
