Slowing down is easier when we simplify.One way to simplify is to consolidate.Several of you have noticed that I recently switched my personal/author website from free WordPress to a self-hosted blog.One reason I did this was to consolidate two sites into one—copying the Not So Fast material over here to this cozy new online home. You’ll find the main pages from NotSoFastBook.com organized under a “Not So Fast” navigational button (see above, clicking on the words “Not So Fast” to see the main page or following the drop-down options to visit sub-pages).From this point forward, any new posts I compose about slowing down in this fast-paced world will be published right here at annkroeker.writer., organized under the “Not So Fast” category. Eventually I’ll copy over all the posts from the NotSoFastBook.wordpress.com site—also categorizing them under “Not So Fast” for easy sorting.I welcome those readers who have only subscribed to Not So Fast. You all have tolerated my dry spells with grace. Thank you for your kindness, and I hope you feel at home here.

And I just want to say, I am LOVING your book Not So Fast. There will be posts to come about it on my blog (hope that’s okay!)
Well, I am loving that you are loving Not So Fast (the book)! I’ll be watching with joy for your posts (more than okay–it’s delightful)!

I’m leaving another comment to tell you that I read your chapter on Slowing Spending last night, and now I see what you mean by The Compact. Very cool. I’m so glad I read your chapter — it’s fueling my not-shop resolve! And kind of a coincidence that I just launched my personal project, and then read your chapter on spending less the very same day. Hmmmm.
This is really nice Ann. It makes it so much easier to read all of your great posts!
Now I just need to copy and repost them here! It’ll take a while, but like you said, everything can be easily sorted. Thanks for your sweet encouragement.

Your consolidation looks great! Your self-hosted site is wonderful!
Thank you, Charity! It’s simple, but it’s a great start and several things have been greatly simplified–I didn’t mention in the post above how happy I am to have a better “linky” for the Food on Fridays people to use. It may or may not be easier for them, but it’s a LOT easier for me to avoid hand-pasting and updating the post on Fridays.

I like the new look. Fresh, clean, and simple.
I like to think it reflects my personality–fresh, clean and simple. I hope I’m clean. I’m not sure about fresh. But I’m definitely simple.
Thanks for your note and the compliment! Chris Cree got it all set up!
