OK, I Did It And I Need Your Help!

I'll be the first to admit that I'm scared to death a little apprehensive of change. I've been blogging for exactly a year now and many people have told me that I should switch from blogspot to a .com. Well, I did it! I JUST did it-about 10 minutes ago. Jennifer talked me into it a few nights ago and I decided to do the switch today.

I'm going to ask a favor and if you have my button up on your blog, please switch it out for the new code. It looks EXACTLY the same, it just directs you to my .com instead of my blogspot. Just copy and paste the code up under the button.





If you have my Mistletoe Madness button up, you should switch that out too. If you don't have the Misteletoe Madness button up, put it up so you can get extra entries into the FANTASTIC(you're seriously going to love them) giveaways that are coming up starting Nov 1st! Don't forget to leave a comment on my Mistletoe Madness post letting me know that you had it up before the event began for your extra entries.






I have a few other things that I'm going to need to change around, but this is a start. The look of my blog will not be changing, just the URL! I need to fix feedburner, so please let me know if you're not getting my updates/emails.

Edited to add: You will not have to re-follow or anything like that. The only thing that you should have to manually do is change out my button codes. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I'm kind of learning as I go, but I'll figure it out!

Pin It!

I am not too savy - does this mean I have to re-follow you at a new url? My google still shows me following your blog but I want to make sure - don't want to miss a thing!

Dee said...

no, you should not have to re-follow. I think that all stays the same. The only thing that you should do is change out he button code(if you don't mind)!

Congrats Dee! I've been thinking about doing the same thing, but don't really know what I'll have to chabge around, and if I'll lose readers.

I don't think you need new button codes. I didn't even THINK of that, but my old ones are still working!

MOMMY-MOMO said...

wow!!! good job! I need to figure out how to do this!

Theta Mom said...

Yay for the .com! BTW, you took the words right out of my mouth about the voting. We could have clicked our way to the top, but what's the point in that? Congrats again on being a finalist! You know your blog rocks! Would love to follow if you follow as well. ;)

It's an easy switch, isn't it? Good for you just going for it. :)

Jennifer Leigh said...

So far I haven't touched my feedburner and it hasn't stopped anything. I signed up for my own emails right before I did it and I'm getting them still...even the newer posts on the .com
