If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you may have seen me allude to a VERY exciting announcement. You’d better be sitting down for this. I’m serious. Pull up a chair. Are you ready?? This is big, I’m telling you!
So About What I Said…
…is moving to a self-hosted WordPress blog!
Translation (mostly for my mom): The blog is getting its own domain!!!
For the last 8 years, this blog has been my sweet haven — it’s literally been my happy place and my sanity at times, too. I’m sure all bloggers say this, but I honestly can’t remember my life before blogging and I don’t know where I’d be today without it. This space has helped me discover who I am, who I’m not and even who I want to become. It’s advanced my writing career by leaps and bounds. And of course, it’s helped me connect with SO MANY amazing people from all over the world.
That’s where you come in, friends! Because let’s be real, So About What I Said wouldn’t be what it is today without all of you; you’re just as much a part of things as I am — and you know I wouldn’t have it any other way!!! I mean, we’ve been through a lot together, haven’t we? We’ve laughed. We’ve cried. We’ve even contemplated in earnest the merits of One Direction…if you can’t do that among friends, then what’s the point, you know?
I’ll be working on getting everything organized and ready for the big move (who knew I could amass so many drafts and random links in only 8 years…?) in the coming weeks, but I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts as well — and I know you’ve got them because, HELLO, you’re awesome and amazing! Did I mention that lately?? Well, you are! Here are some questions to get your thoughts rolling and the creative juices flowing…
1. What design/aesthetic changes would you like to see on the new site?
2. What content changes would you like to see?
3. What suggestions do you have for a smooth transition (because, frankly, my stress eczema is *thisclose to flaring up big time!)?
I’m beyond exciting for this move, as you can probably imagine, but you know me…I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t terrified just a little bit. That’s perfectly normal, isn’t it? Maybe I just need to up the dosage on my eczema cream?
Anyway, let me know your thoughts to the above questions, either in the comments or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, I thank you all for sticking by me all these years…I LOVE YOU! Now let’s go on a new adventure together, OK…?? xoxo
