moving forward

Well, I haven't posted here in a long time so I guess we can all move on, huh? I have been posting very regularly on my Vox blog, though. Registration for Vox is open now so you can join the fun, too.

The three years I wrote here were very important for me. I graduated college, went from being a reluctant adult to an actual adult, got the best job ever, moved into my own place, and overcame a lot of things that were holding me back. It wasn't always easy but I'm glad that I shared it here. I hope to share the next phase of my life on Vox.

The archives for this blog are still available, mostly for my own use but there's some good stuff in there. I may be back to this space in some capacity but who knows. Of course, I still use TypePad for the Pretty Pear and because it's part of my job! TypePad and I take good care of each other :)

iLuv i7500 review

iLuv i7500

I'm not an expert when it comes to sound systems, so this is really a laywoman's opinion. I think the system is worth the $160 I paid for it from Amazon, and even more worth it since it's now listed at $154. I was attracted to this paticular system because it has things other systems don't: CD player, AM/FM radio, a good remote, subwoofer, and a memory card slot. I was hesitant because I couldn't find decent reviews anywhere but I figured I could just send it back if it sucked.

I think the sound quality is pretty good. Keep in mind that this isn't a high-end speaker system so if you're expecting big sound and perfect quality, you're likely to be disappointed. However, if you're just looking for a good iPod dock that will also play CDs and radio, this might be an option. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.

If you're looking for a more in-depth review, try this one at iLounge. I haven't had the dock problems that the author discusses in the review but it will give you a better idea of the specifics of the system.

Does anyone out there own the iLuv i7500 speaker system? It's exactly what I'm looking for but I can't find much in the way of reviews. There are a couple of reviews on that say the system is "good," but not much else. Amazon has it for $160 and I'm itching to buy it but I'm wondering about the sound quality. Anyone?

Update: I decided to go ahead and order the system from Amazon. I'll post a review after I test drive. I'm really excited!

Oh, hello.

Almost a full month and no posts here? That's a little obnoxious. I'm sort of having an identity crisis because I want to blog here but I also want to post on Vox and I've been trying to put more time into my other TypePad blog. I guess I have to decide what to post here and what to post elsewhere. I don't want to let this blog sit and rot but eh, not sure what to write anymore.

I'm coming up on three years with this blog. Three!
