While I'm away...

It seems like this blog goes through a veritable roller coaster when it comes to reader/writer interaction. I'll go weeks without hearing from any of you and then suddenly my blog is flooded with comments (which I totally love because it makes me feel relevant). I'm definitely not a "super blog" with thousands of readers and that has never bothered me. This blog is my hobby, not my career. I don't mind having less than 200 followers but I'm not ashamed to offer prizes and goodies to bulk up my numbers when I'm tired of being stuck in a certain bracket. I don't need advertisers, and if I suddenly need to to tell you about some amazing new find I can do it without worrying that I'm going to step on some one's toes.

But one thing I do want to do is hear more from you! Especially because I'm going to be moving to new digs soon! Blogger has some amazing new tools, gadgets and set-ups, and rather than try to implement them here and mess up all my pages, I've decided to start over and start fresh. Yes, I'll be horribly sad to say goodbye to "Two Nuts in a Shell," but I'm hoping the new site (name to be announced soon!) will mark a new chapter in my blogging life (and no, before everyone goes wild with speculation, it will not be a baby blog.)

So, after all that jabberwocky, while I'm on hiatus with my newly returned hubby ::swoon, giggle, and blush:: I'm leaving the floor open to your suggestions!

What would make you comment more?

Do you want polls listed on the blog?

What do want to see more of?

Should I start hosting link parties?

Would you like more opportunities to ask questions about us?

Should I incorporate video blogging?

Tell me whatcha thinkin'!
and please be kind. reading this blog is optional. suggestions to go jump in a ditch will be immediately ignored and deleted. :)


  1. honestly, I love what you're doing right now - it's REAL to me, and that's what I tend to like about the blogs I follow. I do love your home decor posts, obviously, so I would say stick to it! :)

  2. I had something all typed out but then read the comment before mine (from MandeeFoFandee) and really, everything I had typed said what she said. I don't comment often on your posts because... well.... I hate having to log in to blogger. I just have all my fav blogs saved in my favorites... Once I log in, I forget to log out. And I hate not logging out. And I am at work on my break time when I read blogs and I just don't think about it. I like your blog the way it is. And just remember that EVERY time you post, I read it and enjoy every second. And I am completely inspired. Also - be sure on the new one to keep a link to your other blog where you post stories. I read every one. You are an amazing person who's talent is never ending. I LOVE the project and decor posts. Those are my favorite. Keep doing what you are doing. We love you.

  3. NOOOOO, you can't leave "two nuts" and go changing things on me! I LOVE your blog the way it is! I am a fellow military spouse, and I am totally inspired by the way you are able to decorate military housing on a budget.

    I don't comment much, but it doesn't mean I don't read each and every post! =)


Thanks for dropping by! I love comments and I read each and every one of them. You can also contact me by e-mail if you want to chat!
