Pardon the Dust

So if you hadn’t noticed, my blog is now on WordPress! After weeks of behind the scenes work I made the switch last night and although it may take a few hours to load properly for everyone (this would be because of the cookies and cache your computer has saved from logging on before). So if you see a “Page Not Found” prompt come up, it’s probably because your computer is still trying to go to the old blog from the previous information it saved in its cookies even though it’s been re-routed on this end. You can refresh your cache or cookies if you want, otherwise I think it will sort itself out on its own in the next day or two.

I love the sidebar fonts I chose and I am excited I figured out how to do a lot of the design and transfer on my own. Granted I was on blue host live chat help a dozen times and Melanie helped with a lot of it and even when she wasn’t actually doing the work, she pointed me in the right direction and answered a lot of my questions so that this could be possible. It’s not exactly the same as the last design, but the header and background are almost the same and I tried to do the borders as close as I could get them with my limited design abilities. I am still working on switching the RSS/Feedburner over and fixing the menu bar so that all the links work, since things have changed since I initially set them up before the transfer.

Otherwise, the posts and comments from Blogger should all be transferred and if you need to find anything in the meantime you can use the search box. Once I get all the kinks after the switch ironed our the slider shouldn’t look as wonky either. I am just happy that after the past weeks of work it’s finally switched over and all I need to do is some “clean-up” to make it all work correctly with WordPress. I will still need some adjustment time to get the comfort level with WordPress that I felt with Blogger, but I am excited to be hosting my own domain and feel like this a great step for my blog.

Thanks for you patience as I sort things out this week and enjoy!
