In case you haven’t noticed, Musings of a Housewife just got a makeover!!!!! We still have a few minor kinks to iron out, but for the most part, I think we’re up and running.
I cringe a little bit as I say that . . . my site crashed twice during the installation process, and we’re still not sure exactly why so I don’t want to jinx anything. But so far, so good!
I love everything about it. The light and airy look and feel, the new custom logo, the coordinating buttons on the sidebar that take you to popular features, the newsletter signup box in the header the custom Subscribe & Connect box and the nifty Search/Categories/Archives widget (that uses the Tabber Plugin, if anyone is interested.)
And look at my adorable new button!
Shay Bocks is to credit with all of this deliciousness! She probably gained a few gray hairs in the process, I know I did. But all’s well that ends well.
The other thing that has changed recently, and this has NOTHING to do with the redesign, it just so happened to be necessary right now. Because Google seems to be no longer servicing Feedburner, most bloggers are jumping ship — me included.
My feed provider has changed to Feedblitz, and my new RSS feed can be found here: http://feeds.feedblitz.com/
How to Change Your Feed Subscription
You can go into the Feed Reader of your choice and add it manually.
Or on http://feeds.feedblitz.com/
Frankly, this is all pretty much Greek to me so if you’re not following along . . . you’re not alone! I am telling you what my brilliant virtual assistant told me to tell you. HA!!
Make it easier on yourself and subscribe by email! You’ll get an email every day around 10AM with my most recent post(s) in their entirety. (Incidentally, I also publish full feeds, you are very welcome.)
We are actually working on a post about how to move your email subscribers to Mail Chimp, if that is something you want to know how to do. You can move your email subscribers to Feedblitz along with your RSS feed, but it isn’t any cheaper than MailChimp and I’ve been with MailChimp for a while now and I like it so we’re keeping it there.
However you decide to stay up to date, I hope you’re reading and enjoying the new look!!
