We're moving!

So I told you guys about a million years ago that I was working on a little project around here, and you guys graciously provided much-need feedback regarding the direction this silly blog is taking.

And I'm excited to announce that a blog redesign is coming soon!  I've been working with Liz at Sweet Simplicity Designs, and she has been fabulous.  We're almost there!

The reason I'm spoiling the surprise and telling you all before it's finished is because, along with a new design, the blog is actually getting an entirely new name and URL!  As much as I hate to say goodbye to this place that's been home for the last three (!) years, it's just time for a change that will hopefully stick for many years to come. :)

I still haven't hammered out the details yet, and I'm not sure whether I'll be (1) exporting this blog to an entirely new blog and leaving this blog intact or (2) just changing the URL of the existing blog.  (If any of you have gone through a transition, I'd love any tips you have!!)  If I go with the latter, the old blog will cease to exist, and the few of you who actually come to my site to read (rather than reading on an RSS feed) will get an error and won't be able to find me unless you make note of my new address.

So if you want to continue following along, go ahead and add this address to your Google Reader or favorites list:  http://lovedandlovely.blogspot.com

I'll be installing the redesign in the next day or two, so it's empty for now, but I'm so excited to share it with you guys!  I went with Loved & Lovely as the title because, for me, life is lovely because I am loved by the King and the most handsome prince that there ever was. :)

Thanks for your patience, and I hope to make the transition as smooth as possible!

I would not completely start over. You will lose people. My blog used to be katystjohn.blogspot.com and I just switched it. My first 15 or so posts are from that blog and it's nice to still have them here to look back at. I have a friend that switched to wordpress and she doesn't have nearly as many followers because some people only read through google reader and have no idea where to find her now. Just my two sense. It really wasn't hard to just switch the name.

hmmm, I just tried to click on it to add to my reader and it says permission denied.

I wouldn't start over either. I would go crazy if I lost all my previous posts!

I cannot WAIT to see the new digs! I'm adding it to my list now!

I added it to my google reader. Please update here again when you start posting there so I know my feed is working. :)

New blog designs are so darn exciting! Congrats! (I admit that I read via the dashboard, not Google Reader because I canNOT figure that stupid thing out.)
