A New Beginning

After thinking it over, I've decided to just stick with this blog, but remake it over.  I imported the 2 posts I made at the new blog over to here and will cancel that one.  Why didn't I do this in the first place?  Oh well.  Women are entitled to change their minds.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'm going to start going by my real name of Betsy rather than Gingerella as well.  After a lifetime of hating my first name, I've decided to try and embrace it instead.  What better way to start than by discarding my nickname?

One thing creating the other blog did was force me to learn more about blog design.  I learned how to do a few new layout tricks and had a blast creating my Confessions of a Wannabe Housewife banner on Scrapblog.  Never mind that it took me 7 hours on Sunday to figure out (shhhh).  I actually like learning how to do new things on the computer and can dink around for hours trying to figure something out.  Maybe I missed my real calling in life, maybe I should be learning how to do web design or write code or something, hahaha.

So, I will continue on my journey to becoming a domestic goddess here and retitle Gingerella's Corner as Confessions of a Wannabe Housewife.  I'll still share other things as well, never fear Ginger fans!  :)  Please be patient as I overhaul the layout, which I will thoroughly enjoy doing.


  1. Cool. Have fun! I can't tell you HOW many times I tweaked and re-tweaked old blogs until I have what you see today. The biggest thing for me is that I felt too confined with other blogs I had. Now I've found a format that lets me blog about a huge array of topics, which keeps it fresh and fun. Enjoy the ride sister, I know you'll do great!

  2. Good deal,!!! It may take me a few times to get used to that... but I'll get there... BTW, I think the name Betsy ROCKS!!! :-) ...I am also thinking a bit about cranking up a second 'free-form' blog (i.e., everything EXCEPT Ginger...well, she might creep in every now and again...), but don't tell anybody... well, not that anyone would be teetering on the edge of that announcement, anyway...:-]

    Oh, P.S. - So now, I'm expecting vintage housewife pin-up pics, I'll have you know! :-]


  3. I think Betsy is a very vintage name, so be proud! :-) I'm going to check out that Scrapblog site you mentioned. I love to play around with blog design, too, but get frustrated since I know so little about design.

  4. Oh, honey...everything looks just great! You and I are totally on the same page with loving to tinker on the computer...and it's so magical when everything fits just the way you want it to, right?

    I love your name, Betsy! It's unique...and now you can look at it as a "coming of age", if you will. I reinvented myself in 2005 when hubby and I split up. Went from Kathy to Kathryn and I've totally embraced it. Kathryn has had a much better life and I just know that Betsy will as well.

    Happy Holidays, sweetie!

  5. Blogging is all about having fun! enjoy it! everything looks great : ) and I love your name!!


I love getting comments....c'mon, make my day! :)
