Well folks it is here!! My website that is. My theme is in place and I have started decorating!! I have moved all of my posts and I am so glad that part is over!!!! There is more decorating and widgets to add but I just couldn’t wait any longer 😉 So my new home on the internet is here!! Now keep in mind I still have things to do.
I thought and thought about when I should share my new site. I had always planned to have everything ready to go before I shared it. Between Avery needing me and my house falling apart around me I realized it will take me a lot longer to move then I thought. So even though I am probably doing the wrong thing I am going to share it early 🙂 Last night when I started moving things I got a little nostalgic about this site and my old posts. I wish I could stay here but if I want to keep moving forward I need to have a site that is my own. Even though this is a very exciting news step for me it is scary too. I could fall flat on my face and have a sad little website that looks like a ghost town. I could lose all of my followers due to broken links or having to re-subscribe. Oh the thoughts I have had. When I first saw my new site I had a little feeling that I am moving in the right direction.
From this point forward I will not longer be posting new blog entries on this site. If you would like to come with me just click the link that I shared above and it will take you to my new site. You can still subscribe by email to my new site and follow me on Facebook and the Twitter 🙂 As much as I love my little spot on the internet here it is time to say goodbye to wordpress.com and hello to wordpress.org 🙂 Thank you all so much for supporting me on this site and I look forward to seeing you at my new home!!
Yes, my little spot of the internet is hopefully going in a new direction. After much research, thought and general annoying the crap out of the people around me I have finally decided to become a dot com. I am still in the beginning stages and it is far from complete yet but I am hoping in the next week I will be able to let you all see my new website. There is lots to do like transferring posts and making sure my site is user-friendly. I am hoping for a very smooth transition so fingers crossed on that one. Since I am not very knowledgeable on the tech side of things this could prove to be a very interesting time for my blog.
I have been researching like crazy for months and for some reason today I decided to take the plunge. The only problem is that I am barely able to keep my head above water. Avery was not the most excited when I was a little busy today so she decided to break a chair and dump a whole box of cereal on the floor amongst other things. Then of course the wheels started spinning and I was thinking that I made the wrong decision. Since I really don’t know much about websites I feel really lost. Maybe I am in over my head or maybe I am over thinking this whole thing and it will turn out great. Or maybe I will form a huge case of writers block and never write again and then I will be stuck with this website that has a whole bunch of old posts on it. Gah! Too much thinking. So I went for a hike tonight to hopefully clear my head.
After a great hike I decided that I am making the right decision for me and my little blog. Having my own domain name will give me more freedom to submit posts to other outlets etc. I will also just have a little more freedom in general. I am excited, nervous, confused and I have just a general upset stomach.
So now that I have totally confused you and probably given you some of my nervous energy I will drop a little knowledge on you. For now everything with this blog stays the same. I will be here until my new site is ready. When that happens I will announce it on here with a link and I will also be changing all of my links on social media to my new site. From what I gather all email followers will be directed to my new site. Of course I will welcome all suggestions on the new site. I really want it to be easy to use so if there are any problems, links that go nowhere or posts missing please let me know. I am going to do my best to make this a smooth transition and I am hoping all you will have to do is click like usual and get to my corner of the world 🙂 Thank you all for reading and following me and I hope you will join me on my new site 🙂
