Well! Here we are at my brand new blog! Did you make it okay? Are you out of breath and slightly disheveled?
Or is that just me?
Aimee Giese (otherwise known as @Greeblemonkey) has been working hard on this site for a lonnnnng time and now, barring a few kinks we’re working out, these new digs are ready. I feel like I’ve just moved in to an Extreme Makeover house, and I don’t know about you, but I LOVE IT. It is exactly what I’d been envisioning for this site, and while it will take all of us some getting used to, I feel like I can go anywhere and do anything here, for the first time ever. This site has the ability to change as I change, and that is AWESOME.
It is also STRESSFUL, because: WordPress! What are these buttons for? And where is the thingamajig I need to do that thing I always like to do?
And feeds! How do I redirect my old feed and everyone on it to the new one? The directions look like an Algebra II exam!
And readers! Are y’all just going to ditch me now?
And comments! Aimee has worked many, many, (mannnnnnnyyyyy) hours to get the 30,000+ comments over here from the old blog, but y’all. There are some renegade comments out there that are putting up a big fight! What to do???
And hey! LET’S GET ALL THIS STRAIGHTENED OUT YESTERDAY!
Patience is not my strong suit.
So bear with me, please, as we get a few last things worked out. Please let me know if you have questions or concerns about the new site or, especially, advice. Extra points for advice concerning the migration of DISQUS comments to a new blog. And how to redirect a feed to a new web address. And how to use hypnosis and subliminal messages to convince someone to come and clean my house once a week for free.
And beyond that, YAY! Everything is all in one place. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Aimee.
It’s all Suburban Turmoil, all the time!
