I’m a creature of habit.
I don’t even like to change my clothes.
And that’s only a SLIGHT exaggeration considering I wear the same hoodie every single weekend.
Making changes to a blog design that I already loved and a host (blogger) that I was perfectly comfortable with were not decisions I made lightly.
I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I am with what’s going on with my blog right now.
I’ve been emailing and yapping about these possible changes since June.
I wanted to clean my blog up and I was ready for something new…but with the same feel…and I think got it!
Shannon has been working on my blog and dealing with me for weeks now and she’s been spending this entire weekend switching me over. So far the biggest drawback was that none of my comments made it with the move. All of the lovely things you have ever said to me….and that one comment about me being the devil’s spawn…they’re all gone.
Well. That’s not entirely true…they’re still attached to the blogger blog, which still exists. Maybe I’ll go back to it every once in awhile to say hello to my wonderful old design. Maybe I’ll sit down and read all those old comments and reminisce. Maybe I’ll copy and paste them all into their rightful positions on this blog here. Or maybe not.
There is still some work to be done over here though. I need to add content to that super fun navigation bar. I suddenly want to categorize everything in my life and create a tab for it up there. Slightly addictive, that tab making. I need to learn the ins and outs and take some time to bond with WordPress. I can say right now though, that I feel like we’re going to get along okay. WordPress is complex, yes…but so clean and pretty self explanatory.
The great thing about all of this is that I feel invigorated! I didn’t know I needed that…but I’m really excited about blogging right now. And the interactive commenting there is to be done. So easy to reply back to specific people this way.
We’ll see how long the honeymoon lasts…but right now I’m feeling really good about all this newness.
And I KNOW I was supposed to publish my WordPress Vs. Blogger thing, but I couldn’t NOT address the makeover.
It’s coming though…soon my pretty pets. Soon.
