“I put some new shoes on, and suddenly everything is right…”


We’re back!!! How do you like our new look?

I’m obsessed. 

Kelly, over at The Lady Errant, has graciously created this gorgeous design for me! She is truly an artistic genius. She was super patient with me during the entire process. Kelly even taught me a thing or two about coding, HTML and design! She rocks!

Moving your blog to a different platform can be very scary. I did A LOT of research, consulted with my blogging bestie numerous times and chatted with the technicians over at BlueHost and WordPress. I still wasn’t so sure.

I didn’t want to lose my content, my followers, or my comments. I worked so hard to write some great posts over the past nine months. I did not know what to expect, but I was prepared in case anything went awry.

There are a lot of moving parts and I was sort of juggling a couple of them for the majority of last night. Thankfully, I contacted BlueHost and they were super helpful and came to my rescue. Once my blog was on the new platform, Kelly came in and spruced it up.

Have you ever made a serious change to your blog? 

How was your experience?

  1. I love the pawprint! <3! Your blog looks great, and congrats on the move! I love how clean and professional it looks!

    I switched form free wordpress to self-hosted last August and did everything on my own because I was too cheap to pay someone to do it. It took a day, but I'd say it was well worth it! :] Doesn't it feel so nice to have your own space? :D!

    1. Thank you! I am so excited to finally have it completed! Yeah this took a day or two, got some glitches out, but I’m back and ready for some new and exciting things!

  2. I’m on Blogger and have been thinking about getting my own domain name but I don’t even know where to start with the process of switching everything over! Your new design is super cute!

    1. Good luck! It definitely wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, but if you have patience and time, you will be fine! I feel liberated now! 🙂

  3. Woo!!! Love the pawprint and how clean the site is!
    I miss having my own domain, but not confident enough with my blog-future to buy it quite yet.

    1. Thank you! I wanted to make the jump now and not later when I have more content and things to carry over. I’m so please with the result!
