Hey guys and gals! If any of you tried accessing my blog over the weekend you might have noticed it was going through some changes. Some links might not have worked. Some of you may have even gotten emails from my subscription feed, or seen an “update” in your RSS reader with a post you’ve already seen. Sorry about that! However, it was all for a good cause, since now my site is all on WordPress! And hopefully I haven’t lost any subscribers in the process… *chews nails*
I’ve been wanting to make the change for a while now. Blogger has some limitations, and for a design junky like me, WordPress offered some appealing options. I wanted to make my site responsive and retina-ready so that it would look awesome on phones (check it out on your phone! I love it!), and while Blogger has a lot going for it, I was ready to take the leap into self-hosted WordPress. Learning WordPress design has been my secret project for some time, and it took me longer than I expected, but now I’m feeling pretty confident in it.
I think I’ve worked out all the kinks on my site. PLEASE, pretty please, let me know if you see anything wonky, or if anything isn’t quite working the way you think it should. Or if you have any suggestions! I liked my old design, so I kept it mostly the same but added a few updates on color. My biggest change was in clarity, since the old site was rockin’ some pixelated images that drove me insane.
My biggest concern is losing followers, so if you’re a subscriber and you somehow found your way to this post, it’d be awesome of you if you could write a comment telling me how you subscribed and if it all worked smoothly for you in the redirect. I might have lost all my Google Friend Connect (Blogger) followers, so if you follow through Blogger and didn’t get an alert, you might need to resubscribe via email, Feedly or RSS. This one time only, I’ll repost this on my old blog, so please check your subscription, and let me know!!!
Oh, and it’s also my birthday, so as a birthday present for me, please for my peace of mind, leave me a comment so I know everything worked! 🙂 What do you think of my snazzy new WordPress site?
