project number 5 down 5 more to go….
We finally did it, we finally did it. We finally did it… we fin…. Ok enough of repeating that mantra. We pulled off moving seven years worth of postings onto a new platform. Dear oh dear that was a such a mega job. A huge thank you to M who generously gave of his time and effort to help with the move (expect something in the mail soon compliments of Peddlers Wagon). Without his help, I would have still been taking out the html coding, developing some major cause of tendonitis and going grey.
Also thank you to all those who have supported PTF through positive and encouraging comments, generous donations and purchase from our new online store. Your support is greatly appreciated and is helping us grow the future….
So, what do you think? All us urban homesteaders are happy over the new look and yes that’s right there are finally categories! Yippee. With the snazzy new design and better platform expect better and more frequent postings from all us urban homesteaders. No longer will you have to tolerate my choppy sometimes longwinded postings, in join my fellow urban homestead comrades who will bring new dimension and reflections about urban homesteading. Huzza.
Oh and lookie here we even have a Facebook page! Ok I have to admit I am too enjoying all the new snazzy features webmisstress extraordinaire, Jordanne has given to the journal. And a list of all the urban homestead “citfied farm animal characters” is such a fun element.
Of course some design/features elements weren’t finished but we couldn’t hold off relaunch any longer. The picture of the front of house/garden is temporary holding space till we around to a graphic design we have in mind (cityscape with urban homestead elements with the “Little Homestead in the City” as title). Besides some design elements, there’s also a search feature, “steps taken/current trails” listings and some plug-ins that we are waiting on….. But more importantly seven years worth of journal posts are now categorized and can easily be referred.
Otherwise, please excuse all the glitches — things will be worked out over time.
I am so thrilled over the new journal being launched, I don’t know about you, but I may celebrate and take some time away from the computer and tackle that pile of laundry in the hamper in my room, fold pile of clean clothes at the foot of the bed, sort out my yarn and find my ufo (unfinished objects) and so forth. Well, actually I won’t be gone for that long. I’ll be back to posting soon enough.
Lots of new, exciting plans in the works– God willing. We are going through some major growth spurts this year as many of our longtime readers know.
We hope you are just as pleased as we are about the new journal, feel free to comment since I know many of our readers and those who have been with us since 2001 have so patiently waited ( and supported) as we worked a long time for this day. Since 2001, PTF has been leading the way to revolutionize the urban landscape in our own backyard.

P.S. You may notice we now have “ads” (gasp!) but it’s not that we’ve given up our principles in keeping this site ad free. If you look closer , you’ll notice that this “ad” is none other than an advertisement for PTF’s online eco store.
Whether PTF should include more “outside” ads, affiliates or sponsor ads are very much a hot button debate issue in our family. Since many readers said they wouldn’t mind ads, what a better way to “have ads” on this site to advertise none other than PTF’s very own online store?
