Starting Fresh

If you tried visiting the Liesl Made blog at all last week you obviously saw the lovely error message. I was busy working on things behind the scenes (ironically in an effort to make my blogging experience simpler) when something went terribly awry. Every time I tried to fix it I became so thoroughly frustrated that I just walked away and left it. I also read too deep into it and wondered if it was a sign that I should just walk away from blogging all together. (This year has been a tough one and I've been reevaluating a lot in my life.) But I've calmed down and returned to blogging. I still don't know the cause of or how to fix the problem with my old Wordpress blog but I think there is certain freedom in starting fresh. Well, almost fresh. Luckily I managed to import my tutorial and 2014 posts to this space before the old one went down.

As you can also see, Liesl Made is now Buckaloo View, the name of our family farm. Changing the name was just an idea I had been tossing around for a while but since the Liesl Made blog is lost in an internet wormhole, I figured now was as good a time as any to switch. As some of you may remember, before he passed away, my Dad had started up a shop called Buckaloo View where he sold his woodworking. It's not an easy decision to take on the name but I feel it's the best fit. My blog has always been a documentation and celebration of all things 'home.' I'll still be sharing the things I make and do around this place, the adventures I embark on as I try to turn it back into a working farm again. (There is a lot of talk about goats lately!)

My personal life is pretty hectic and emotional right now but I'll work on fixing up what was imported here the best I can in my spare time. In the meantime, I apologize for any broken links or lack of photos. And you may need to subscribe to this new blog rss to continue to get updates.
