I Got A Blog Makeover!!!


Hey everyone! Check it out... isn't my blog fancy purple??? I got a makeover from Darcy at Graphically Designing, who was a total dream to work with. The truth is, I decided long ago that I wanted a blog makeover from Darcy. At that time, she was only working with blogger. So... ladies and gentleman... that is the real reason I switched. I was planning on waiting until the makeover to make the switch, but the comments problem on my Mac blog was driving me nuts and I switched a little early.

Like I mentioned before, Mac and Blogger are not friends, so if I wanted to move my old posts over, I had to do so manually. One. By. One. I just finished the tedious task yesterday. How many posts did I transfer over? TWO HUNDRED AND ONE. Yep. On each of those I had to upload photos, assign labels, change fonts, etc. Oh, and you know how I like to cross out text? Well, that doesn't transfer over with a copy/paste, so I had to read through each of those 201 posts, notice the crossed out text, and then add in the html code to cross out the appropriate text in the new blog. Why did I go to all that trouble? CAUSE I'M INSANE. Seriously. I'm not right in the head. But you all knew that didn't you?

Anyway, here I am... fancy schmancy new blog... Check it out. And if you're using a Blog Reader, click the top of this post and visit my new blog. (you hear that Beth Ann?)

And speaking of comments... The comments option on this blog works very well, thankyouverymuch. I know I kept the comments off my other blog for two years, and you are used to lurking on my blog.... Now is your chance to be heard! (only if you agree with everything I say, of course) I removed that silly image verification to make it even easier. Are you getting what I'm saying? Cause I'm saying I want you all to comment. On every post. There. Just as long as we're clear now.

My only question about my new blog is: Do you think there is enough purple?

  1. Yep. Nuts. You are nuts! But I love it! I can't believe you managed to transfer all the old posts over! You have some serious patience! Oh, and I LOVE your new blog... beautimous!

  9. Hi Julie! It looks great! And the purple is a soothing purple not Barney the dinosaur purple. I just read the post about your in-laws buying the house across the street..It reminds me of Everybody Loves Raymond...only your inlaws or outlaws as we call them on the east coast probably aren't as neurotic. How fun is that you have babysitters that you trust across the street! Enjoy your new space!

    congrats on the blog make over! I think you need a bit more purple! LOL

    glad your BLog Union went so well! WOoHOOO!

    and WOOHOOOO Yippee on the home school ruling over turned! If I had know then what I know now I would have home schooled my boys, but I didn't have any resources and didn't know any one so I knew nothing about it! My boys have chosen alternative schooling methods for high school so they are not in main stream high school

    Ok off to read some more blogs, then after resting some more I will blog on our trip lol

  17. Done. I fixed the link. Sorry it took me so long. I feel like I'm re-entering the blogosphere now that I'm getting my family all healthied up and into a rhythm. Sort of. Okay, its total chaos over here, but happy chaos that I'm loving every minute of! I've missed you and LOVE the new look. Sorry about the bunny.
