Text, letter*Bye, Bye Blogger Blog!*

Well, it’s been a nail-biting few days as I anxiously experienced the highs and lows of switching from Blogger to Wordpress. As you can see, most of the process is officially behind me.
What do you think?
Like the new look?

I would personally like to thank, thank *THANK* Lauren from Restored 316 Designs for doing this transfer for me. She is so sweet, very professional and a ton of help. I know I could not have done it without her – at all!
Thanks again Lauren!

I can honestly already say that I am totally in love with Wordpress so far. It’s a lot different, but nothing has been difficult. And I really prefer the way the settings and posting are done.
As you can see, all my posts and comments transferred over, plug-ins are all in and my Google Friend Connect and Feedburner remained intact! Yes!

**I do have to play around with my nav. bar, categories and tags a bit more – so bear with me in my re-organization. As well, my sidebar is a tad bare right now too. Yet, that is just all the fun extras that I get to play with in my *spare* time. Ha!

I have a busy night ahead of me, I do plan to catch up on some posts that had to be put off until after the switch.
So, later today I will get more reviews and giveaways up for you!

…and then play around with my ‘new toy’ some more.
Ahhhhh….Feels Great!

  3. I think it looks great!! I just recently moved back to Blogger from Wordpress. There were alot of things I did like better about WP, but I missed being able to add my javascript codes. LOL It looks awesome though!

  4. It does look great. The thought of changing to wordpress is quite scary, I am glad you had someone to help you.

  5. I love it and am so jealous! I want to switch but am scared. Congrats Tammi – it is beautiful!

    1. Hi Nikki,
      That *should* only be the first time you enter the info.
      It should recognize and auto-fill after that!

    1. Hmmm….I’m not sure if there is Thao..?
      I actually never though about that one since I have never subscribed to posts before.

  8. I came to the Chaos yesterday and it was the new format, then I came later and it was back to the old format, and I was confused lol. I’m glad you’re liking it more!

  11. I think it looks great! I have been thinking about switching too, but i am seriously scared! I’m afraid something will go wrong, or I’ll lose something.

  12. I made the switch to Wordpress.com, the one that does not require hosting and now wish that I had just gone all the way and done the hosted one. It allows you to put in code for Google analytics, play with the css styles and add plug-ins. I’ll probably switch up to that when I have some time. It’s not really hard PLUS you can always run the WP prototype for a bit to make sure it’s all working fine and then announce your new address. You don’t have to leap before you’re ready. We’re playing around with a new hosted one and it’s not searchable until I hit the switch for that. I like it much better, more professional and really not too hard to learn.

  13. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed
    to be on tthe net thhe easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while
    people thnk about worries thaat they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top ass well as defined
    ouut the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

    Will likely be back to geet more. Thanks

  14. Yes, it is going to set you back some money to look at your credit profile over once per year.
    Companies called consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) or credit reporting
    agencies compile and then sell your credit report to businesses.
    Your child is denied school funding when looking for college.

  15. It is good to look on the internet to find such
    useful topics like yours. IT is also great because I can further develop my own strategy
    and write about my own topics. Good read and keep on rockin!
