BlogJob seems to be a great site

I feel very fortunate to have been able to sign-up to BlogJob . I like it much more than I like myLot.

Of course, I miss the interaction that we all had here at Persona Paper, but I am finding many of the folks from here are at BlogJob.

I have learned through Eva (wolfgirl) that Bambi and Duke are going to be parents again!

One of the things that BlogJob allows for one to do is set up multiple blogs attached to your personal profile. They called them your "sites."

Thus far, I have started two, the first called, "A Thankful Heart." I want to start writing regularly about gratefulness, and to remind myself of all the things that bring me joy, even in spite of the troubles. I have written one post there for now.

The second is "The Frugal Foodie," the intention being to share the dishes that I concoct, "...making great food from leftovers, discount bins, and what you have on-hand." I have written two on that blog, one sharing who I am and how I got to be a "frugal foodie." The other I wrote this morning about an easy Jambalaya recipe I made from some leftovers I had from a birthday dinner for RGD at a restaurant. I think this is one that will be fun for me!

I have a couple of other things that are running through my brain, as well. As they come to fruition, I will share them.

There are also private group options on BlogJob, as well as Forums. I am just starting to get to know it a little bit. I am also glad that Ruby3881 is around to help me with the technical aspects! I have much to learn.

If you have not yet signed up to BlogJob, and you would like to join me and the others there, here is a link to take you there. Once you sign-up, please make sure you find me, and I help you any way I can. We can learn together!

That sounds great. I have too much on at the minute - overcommitted - hopefully, I will get more time to myself soon.

I am not as active as I was here. But it's giving a place to start writing again. Not just do social media stuff like I think myLot is.
You get some of the same drama, but I seem to be able to ignore it better over at BlogJ.
I still miss it here. I won't leave anything completely for now. Just trying to get my act together.LOL

Good afternoon Coral. I joined Blog job a few weeks ago. I am still familiarizing myself with the site and I think I wrote a comment on one of your posts. I agree, it seems to be a nice site. I am still trying to find my niche though. When I find it, maybe you will read some of my posts.

I am still learning how to maneuver through, as well. I don't often get to all the comments, but will do my best! Looking forward to it!

Blogjob seems to be a very versatile site and offers many options for customising our blog to just the way we like it. I don't know when it was set up but it must be a fairly young site since it has well under 2000 members. If anyone is interested then check out CoralLevang 's link and get in on the ground floor of what might well be ''the next big thing'' in blogging!

@Kasman Thank you, Bill. It certainly seems to incorporate several different features. I do find it difficult to navigate a bit, though. It is not as "user friendly" in finding things directly, which is a bit frustrating.

CoralLevang - it is complicated and will take a while to get used to. Have you seen the video tutorials? Go to your dashboard and you will find them in the left-hand panel.

Oh my goodness! He thinks I'm one that reads the instruction booklets?;-)

I'll have a look at Blogjob soon. Why did you write about Persona Paper in the past tense? I've been away from it.

bleekley - PP has virtually shut down. New members are not being accepted and existing members are no longer being paid for activity on the site. You need to read this post by from the site admin: http://www.personapaper.com/article/46348-i-am-sad-to-announce---the-final-nail-has-been-set
