I am in so in love with my new digs!
I hope you feel comfortable too. Pull up a chair…can I get you a drink or anything?
I want to thank my son D for taking my design and recreating it in Photoshop with sharper colors than I could get while just using the program I was using, and for making my funky little social media icon stars. I also owe a HUGE thanks to my friend Ri–who rocks–and is a total genius. She helped me immensely with all of the back-end web craziness and I couldn’t have done this without her.
I have a few minor kinks that I’ll be working out over the next few weeks, like changing the links to past posts so you’ll actually be able to read them here instead of getting a 404 (they’re–obviously–linked to my blogspot url, which will be disappearing soon), but it’s coming along nicely, don’t you think?
By the way (and this is VERY important!), with a new dot com comes a new feed. Please subscribe to my new feed by clicking the RSS star, so you don’t miss a thing. If I were you, I’d do it now so you won’t forget. (Or is it just me who forgets stuff like that?)
Thanks, and WHEEEEEEE!
Congratulations on your new blog home! I love it! 🙂
Thanks Patty! 🙂
Wow! Very exciting.
The new site looks great.
Now…who did it and why did you switch?
I designed it, and Ri helped me (ok, she did most of the work) set it up.
I bought this dot com about a year ago and just haven’t had the time to switch. I just wanted to get off of Blogger and be self-hosted!
Love it. It’s so you 🙂 Congrats!!!
Spank you very much!
Wow! This is nice. Got some coffee?
Yep! Cream? Sugar?

You are seriously going big time. I will have to humbly follow along on your path to fame and fortune. Don’t forget the little people when you replace Oprah as the Queen of Chicago.
You are so silly. And too kind. 🙂

Hey, I’m glad I checked in before you left blogspot so I could keep following you. Congratulations, I like what you’ve done with the place! I hope things are going well. From the looks of it they must be- It looks great!
Yay! Me too! 🙂
Yay you! So ummm do you have to manually go in and change all your links? You realize that’s yet another thing holding me back, right? 🙂 Yay to the new site -but what’s up with only 4 people following you? I’ll make it five!
Yep, I think I do. I’m not in a hurry to do it, though. Maybe if I get some spare time this summer…haha!

Super fantasmic new digs!!
Nice! And I’m follower #7. 🙂
Yay! Seven IS my lucky number…
Obviously I’m way behind on my blog reading and as a result late to the party, but loving the new look. WP and Thesis is a great platform for a blog and D did a great job.
