{welcome to my new home}

Good morning my wonderful readers! How are you this morning? {Oh, wait, it’s Monday, so I know the answer. Unless you are lucky enough to love going to work on Monday, and in that case, please tell us what it is you do!} So, you may have noticed something different. If you are using a reader, you probably have not yet figured it out. I have moved from Blogger to WordPress self-hosted. The domain is now www.dailybitsofbeauty.com, so that means people in IE can finally see this blog without “Operation Aborted” popping up and sending your browser to hell. Alas, there is still a tiny issue I’m having with the sidebar dropping down for people viewing IE, which I just need to find a fix or new template for. {Bear with me, I’m still getting used to editing the CSS on here.}

All in all, I’m very happy that I made the move. It was relatively painless, almost completely due one person: Harsh Agrawal of Shoutmeloud. In searching for information on moving my 300+ posts from blogger to WP, I stumbled upon his blog. I saw that he offered Blogger to WP migration with SEO optimization and 301 perma redirect. In case none of that makes sense to you, just know that it is the absolute best way to move your blog and that you have to do nothing yourself other than pick a template and buy the domain/host services. Let me tell you, not many bloggers know how to do a re-direct like this. {I spent quite some time researching and you would not believe the BS that is out there on how to do this.} If you are interested, visit here for a quote.

  1. Hi you!
    Long-time reader, first-time writer et cetera, I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that I love your blog… It puts a smile on my face every day.

    Also, I love the new look.

    Just maybe a minor hiccup I noticed: in the title of the top right sidebar it says {PROUDLY A MEMBE OF}… maybe you left the R out on purpose ­čśë ?
    Anyway, again, awesome blogging, keep it up, I’ll certainly look forward to your future posts on WP!

    Spread the love,

  2. Congrats on the move! Someday when I can afford the domain/hosting and all I intend to move. Beautiful blog. I just stumbled across you a few days ago.
