Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party ~ Welcome to Natasha in Oz (dot com)

One of my goals this year was to try to be a better blogger, to change the name of my blog and to get my own dot.com! Well.... unfortunately my part-time job this term has taken me away from my blog so I need to work on being a better blogger next term...but.... I am now two steps closer to achieving my goals!

You see, when I decided to start my own blog I created the name rather impulsively and didn't realise that there would be a very long blogspot.com at the end of the blog title... www.5minutesjustforme.blogspot.com is so long!

Also, as an English teacher I really regretted using the numeral five instead of the word five in my blog's title! I don't know how many times I have told my students over the years that small numbers, such as whole numbers smaller than ten, should be spelled out yet here I was doing exactly that! Bad teacher! I have also noticed that when lots of bloggers link back to me they often forgot to add in the word "Just" so I decided to simply start afresh and name my blog something that many people have already seen many times before....

So, I have finally removed blogspot.com from my URL, I have a new and simpler name for my blog and I am following the rules for writing numbers...yippee!

I have a few other exiting things planned for this little ol' blog but as always, everything takes time and patience. Please bear with me while I make a few changes and try to reach my blogging goals in 2012!

Now, onto this week's 

Say G'day Saturday Linky Party

Say G'Day, Natasha in Oz


I can't wait to see what you have been creating and doing this week! I have been trying a few recipes, looking for ideas for Easter and I've even done some decorating. I have also found myself listening to lots of Chillout music while I have been at home by myself. I thought you might like to listen to one of my favourite pieces that I seem to be constantly playing over and over again! It is very ambient and is great background music while I am marking homework, cleaning the house or reading my favourite blogs!

Fragile State - The Facts And The Dreams



Here are some of my Favourite Finds this week!
