That's right. I'm moving.

Let's call Spring a fresh start for the life of Alyssa, and therefore, for Life of bLyss as well.

Here's a sneaky sneak preview of my brand spankin' new Wordpress domain:

sneaky, sneaky, sir.
But that's all you're gettin', because I want it to be a nice unveiling when the site is ready.

Blogger's just leaving a lot to be desired, especially when it comes to bugs, layouts, comments, subscriptions, etc.

A fresh start. 
It's what I'm planning; it's what I'm grabbing; it's where I'll succeed.

"I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness."

Courage is about doing what you're afraid to do.
There can be no courage unless you're scared.
"One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in, and where you want to go."

Be who you are and say what you feel.
Because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

"It takes chances to make changes." 

And a few of my all-time personal favorites...

this has been on my fridge for the past 5 years.
"no one can give you courage; no one can thicken your skin"

"maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. maybe they're supposed to run wild until they find someone just as wild to run with."

And edited to add from Lisa's post today,
I'm totally a thief, Lisa. Forgive me.
But this is perfect.

'Cause after all, this little girl (and her scrunchies) is counting on me to do her proud.

Dear God,
I don't know what your plan is, but I've finally realized I need to put all my faith in you.
Bring it. I trust ya.
Love, Alyssa

So excited to see your new site! Are you using a free template or did you upgrade? someone to do it for you? I think I want to change my layout soon, that's why I'm asking! :)

After getting more than 10000 visitors/day to my website I thought your website also need unstoppable flow of traffic...

Use this BRAND NEW software and get all the traffic for your website you will ever need ...

In testing phase it generated 867,981 visitors and $540,340.

Then another $86,299.13 in 90 days to be exact. That's $958.88 a

And all it took was 10 minutes to set up and run.

But how does it work??

You just configure the system, click the mouse button a few
times, activate the software, copy and paste a few links and
you're done!!

Click the link BELOW as you're about to witness a software that
could be a MAJOR turning point to your success.
