**GOTHIC GRANOLA PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT**

This blog is in a serious state of reconstruction. We have switched from Blogger to WordPress thanks to the patient and thorough guidance of Jason at Site Image Studios. Themes will change pretty much daily. It’s like shopping for clothes…no, wait, shopping for clothes is way more straightforward. Jason made the technical side of transferring the GG domain to a different registrar, setting up my email, and configuring Google Apps utterly painless. My site will be ready to expand should I use it for health coaching as well, and I have more features than ever before. Gothic Granola lives on, thanks to Site Image Studios!
