How many makeovers can you have?

I started this blog a few years ago when anyone who was anyone had a blog. It has gone through two distinct phases and is about to enter a third.
.

First of all, it started as a general sounding board for whatever took my fancy. It contained serious thoughts and not a few humorous ones along with a few cryptic crossword clues that I had come across and some o' the Ulster Scots leid tae just for good measure. Then Twitter and Facebook came along and that part o' life fell into disrepair.

.

I then decided to revive it again. This time the content was more serious. Hey! I even dropped the Confederate flag from the decoration at the top :o) I hoped it might prove to be a feeder site for my own Christian website so I gave bitesize examples from the site with a link to the relevant page. Although the website enjoys relative success, yet there was practically no evidence that any traffic came from the blog. So again, decay set in.

.

I am very reluctant to let GoodnightSafeHome go. It is like one of those books that escapes every single purge of the library, but still doesn't really get read. It might even make the wrong pile for a while but gets a reprieve because I am a big softie at heart. (But don't push me...)

.

So here is the second revamp. Some might even say it is the unkindest cut of all. I want to use it for stuff that probably wouldn't make the grade in the website which I take very seriously. So that I can hide behind the "Forget it! It's my personal blog" excuse.

.

This isn't to say that I'll be updating it regularly, although you might just never know...
