Good Morning Nail Friends! And what a great morning it is! Did you miss me? I’ve been MIA for quite a while and now you see why.. You may have noticed a few little, ok well, a Lot of Huge changes around here. Like, I’m on WordPress now! Squeee! Exciting right? It is for me anyways, and a bit terrifying as well. Haha. I’m not a tech savvy person at all so I’m feeling a little overwhelmed with all of these fancy new behind the scenes options. I’ve been thinking about making the move from blogger to wordpress for a while now. Actually since my big redesign last year but I was too afraid to do it.. I figured now, with my 3 year blogiversary just weeks away I might as well just go for it. Better to do it now than spend another year wishing I had.
Lucky for me I found an awesome blog guru to do my transfer and everything went super smooth. Megan Tenney at Shaping Up Your Blog was amazing to work with. She got me all set up on WP, redirected all my old Blogger stuff and customized my new theme perfectly. I cannot recommend her enough. She helped to ease my fears along the way and was super sweet in putting up with my indecisive self.. So if you’re reading this, Megan, Thank You, you’re not only a technical genius you’re an angel too!
I am really loving it! Especially the fancy homepage (I know, I know, I need to stick a more recent pic of me and Little D in there. Lol). And I love that WP gives You all the option to pop your blog’s url right in there with your comments – makes it easier for me to stalk you guys. 😉 <– (and look at that, real smileys!!) I have an awesome new “Nail News” tab for press releases (so expect to see me posting those more often), a cool new “professional” contact page. And I Finally upgraded to a Mailchimp email newsletter! I feel so grown up now. So if you followed my through your blogger dashboard (I might not be there anymore) make sure to fill out that follow by email box to get my latest posts sent right to your inbox or go ahead and follow me on bloglovin.
I can’t wait to hear your feedback about the new site. And if you have a few minutes take your time and browse around the new site. Love it? Hate it? Be honest.. Please, leave a comment and tell me what you think. Let me know if you find anything wrong, links not working, things you think could be better, any suggestions at all. Also if you have any favorite WP plugins or features you think I might like please do tell.
