I did it


I designed and moved my blog from blogger over to WordPress…

I felt like I’ve run a Marathon…

And now, I get to do this…

Beat your chest with me, will you?

Today just might be the day.

But, you’ll never know if you don’t get out there and





P.S.  I’ll be sharing more about my move, why I chose to leave blogger and how I learned to code..hahaha…and move my blog BY MYSELF…Who-hoo!!!   So make sure and connect with  me before you head off in search of some more inspiration!

    YEAH! I am so proud of you. And it looks amazing. This is encouraging. I am going to consider moving {or at least designing} in wordpress. Well done!

  2. says

    Impressive – you moved by yourself!! I had someone do it for me – still feeling my way around wp. Maybe we could be wp buddies!!
    Love the site – looks fabulous!

  3. says

    Looks gorgeous Gwen! Congrats on the move – looking forward to hearing how you did it!

    HURRAY!!! I am so impressed that you did this yourself! I love what you’ve done with the new place! Beautiful!!!

    Well my dear…here’s the critique. My favorite color of this blog? The green…it’s strange. Which I love! The quirkiest part…why everything. snap…how did you change the color of the arrows on that plug-in?? gotta go figure that out! You header? Basic…clean, but fun. Exactly what you intended!!

    It looks wonderful! I love how it’s so colorful and full of personality but still easy to read!
    Great job =)

    I’m thinking of doing the same thing, so I may be hitting you up for pointers! (Found you over at Tip Me Tuesday, by the way.) You are a brave soul to try it yourself! I’m kinda scared.

    Wow. You’re lots of fun. I found you when you commented on my nautical wall art. How cool. I need to go to bed but in the morning, when i have a second or two (my kids are still on spring break), I’ll spend some time here. Love WordPress! I’m a new blogger and started w/ it. So glad you’ve made the move. Thanks for commenting on my work. There’s more coming soon on my site. See ya.

    halle-freakin’-luja, girl! forgive the cliche, but you never cease to amaze me. i drift away for a few weeks and you become a write of code! what next? really? i want to know!

    well done on the design and layout. love the green tone and circles. sheesh, you must feel like you’re slumming when you pop by my ‘hood. perhaps i’ll be your first client!!

    Congrats! I hope you can help me too with my blogs as Blogging with Amy did with you…Are you able to help me improve mine?

  13. says

    I can’t believe you did this by yourself. You are my hero! I’m having someone do it for me and I’m nervous as heck about the transition. Your blog looks awesome. I can’t wait to hear all of your inside tid bits, reasons for doing it, etc… Have a great day!

    Good job Gwen! I have moved a couple blogs from blogger to wordpress recently. One for myself and one for someone else. There were a few snags along the way, but I finally got it figured out and I know what you mean by saying you feel you’ve run a marathon!

    Congrats :)


  15. says

    CONGRATS….can you hear me whooping it up for you! You should be very proud and pleased with yourself!

    I almost didn’t recognize your blog. It looks fabulous over here! I just made the move to and wow is there so much to learn, it looks like you are WAY ahead of me. COngrat’s and thanks for your kind words. ENjoy your weekend.

    I had to do the same thing! But, from Iweb to WordPress. I was paranoid every day that my sight was going to crash-again-after I moved it over. But, so far-smooth sailing. Congrats, my dear. You have come to the dark side-with me, Freddie and Darth. Welcome.

    ach. Your buttons on the sidebar are making me feel inadequate as a bloggy friend. I need to get mine updated. Where is the blogging fairy when you need one? Oh yeah why I am here…to let you know you were featured on Hating Martha. Cause you S.T.A.N.K. Well, not you really but…
