Green Boots Changeover: On Schedule!

I wanted to give everyone one huge, wonderful, and happy-making update on the progress of switching over Even Green Boots Leave Trails to its new, revived form. 

Everything is on Schedule!!!


You've probably noticed the name switch: Two Green Boots. While the name Even Green Boots Leave Trails definitely fits this blog, it's a wee bit long (ok... really long), and therefore hard to remember. Furthermore, trying to type that name into an address bar can be a great exercise in patience. Two Green Boots, however, flows much more easily, and is less likely to inflict an extreme case of Typo Terror.

Sooo...

The name has been changed, a new logo has been created (Two green boot... prints!), DIY and article ideas are being researched, broken links are being mended, I'm in the process of making this theme responsive on mobile devices, and everything is on schedule...

...even though I'm in the process of moving into a new home, again!

Like I said previously, I've really missed you guys. I look forward to once again seeing your comments and reading your emails. You mean quite a bit to me, and some of you even helped inspire blog posts that I never would have written otherwise. 

You rock!

So now it's your turn, since this blog was created with you in mind. Send me an email, or reply in the comments below to give your opinion on what should be done. 
  • What environmental issues are most important to you, right now? 
  • What items do you want to re-purpose? 
  • What home remedies are you interested in, but unsure of? 
  • What visual properties of this website need a design change?

What changes do you want to see happen with Two Green Boots?

Blowing Dust From the Green Boots

It's been a while. A 
r  e  a  l  l  y
long while since I last posted to the Green Boots.

That needs to change. Now, more than ever before, we need to stand together to protect our environment. Let's get those green boots back out and blow the dust away, shall we? Tonight I begin the long process of bringing the blog back to life, and with your help, it'll come back even stronger than before.

That "your help" part is actually incredibly simple. All you need to do is show up and read. Easy-peasy, right? I'm sure, however, that you have one big, burning question on your mind:

Why the long break???

Actually, while I never gave up on the quest to go green through research and various projects, I stopped writing about it due to the upheaval involved in moving to new locations a few times. Four times, to be specific. Two different places in Minnesota, and two in Washington.

And I'm actually moving again later this month. Craziness, right?

During the time I spent away from the Green Boots, I also learned web development. I'm not actively using any of the skills I learned on this site... yet... but if you're interested in seeing some of what I've done you can find my portfolio at CatEye Coding

And on that subject...

You can expect to see more about green technology in the future. I firmly believe that the responsible use of technology can help us build a more eco-friendly world, and I want to be a part of that.

So...

Here we go! I've got a lot of housecleaning to do with this website, and its name will be shortened to make it more memorable. Even Green Boots Leave Trails, after all, is a bit of a mouthful. I'm excited to get back and begin writing for you again!

Now that the Green Boots are coming back, what do you want to hear more about, and what projects are you interested in?
