Small Changes

From my post yesterday, you would think there would be some huge changes to my blog, right? Well, I thought so too.

My plan was to change the URL and buy the domain name (which I did–yay!) and also to change the layout, fix some pages/posts, and make the blog look more like a website than an actual blog.

So my blog officially has a new title and a new URL which is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now. Layout-wise, it’s more or less the same. I have done some subtle changes and I’m still thinking about other little changes, but they haven’t been put into effect yet.

In order to customize my theme I need to pay WordPress a certain amount per year. Believe me, the amount isn’t bad at all. However, I just bought the domain name and buying a new layout isn’t just something I feel like I can do at the moment. Maybe next year I will.

In the meantime, the notepad theme is going to stay. Besides, you’re all here for the content of my blog, right? …Right?

With that being said, I am super excited to have a new URL. It makes me feel as though this blog is officially mine. I can’t wait to slowly work at slight layout changes that I can make for free… like I said, I have a few other ideas on how to make the blog look “newer.”

Sorry to disappoint anyone who expected “big changes” like I said there would be because I was expecting big changes, as well. However, I’m happy with what I’ve done for the blog so far.

Here’s to a lot of posting in the New Year!

  1. I also just got my domain name. I had hoped to get my blog changed more than it is, but I ended up just going with a simple free theme. I think that the key to making it look professional is keeping things simple, which you’ve achieved. The only thing I would suggest is that if you use Twitter a lot to have that right under your blog follow widget, but that’s just my opinion. I don’t even use Twitter myself, so feel free to ignore me :p

    1. It’s a great feeling to have the domain name. 🙂 I would like a different layout just for a change of pace, but it’s not a priority. I think you’re right; simple is better.

      I like your suggestion about the Twitter, though. I want to try using it more than I do now (which is very little). It’s a good idea to have it closer to the top so people can see it right away. Thanks! 🙂

Let me know what you think!
