So, that change I mentioned happened a little quicker than I expected. 😉

Welcome to my new home!

If you were accessing my blog via before, things probably just look a little different to you. New theme and all (which I’ll get into momentarily).

If you were accessing my blog directly via, then you must have seen my recent post redirecting you here.

If you were accessing my blog through WordPress Reader or some other feed, I don’t know how you got here, but I’m glad you did (er, I hope you did?).

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I decided to move to self-hosting and I had planned on taking baby steps. Apparently baby steps for me means scrambling to find a theme similar to my existing one so that I could migrate everything over immediately with as few alterations as possible.

And voilà! Here we are. I haven’t been able to check everything. I know some things didn’t make it. And is always the case when you move, I’ll probably want to shuffle the furniture around a bit. Things might be messy for a few days. Please bear with me while I figure it all out.

Me? I’m stretching out in my new space, envisioning all the possibilities.

Welcome to Mad Book Love 2.0, my dears!

  1. Congratulations on your new virtual home! You mentioned self-hosting, I don’t know what it is and now I’m curious about it.

    Your blog updates are sent to my email very nicely and I wish wix, my provider, had something as nice.

    I’m looking at the new site on my phone and everything looks very sharp, congrats! 🙂

  2. It looks very great! I personally found self hosting a bit expensive and confusing when they tried to make me switch but I know you get so much more freedom. I wonder why I have such a hard time accessing self hosted blogs through mobile. Now im rambling. Sorry but looks great and happy for you!🎉😄📚💖

    • This comment went into spam for some reason (so odd since other comments of your have gone through!). Well, for this first year, I found a really good deal and a recommended host – $12 for the first year! Not per month. For the WHOLE year. It’s more work, but I can control ads (which I HATE), and more importantly, can use whatever widgets, design elements, etc. I want. Totally worth it.

      I do understand about self-hosting blogs having accessibility issues sometimes. Are you having issues with mine? It’s rare for me to use a mobile device for blogging or blog viewing, but I do try and check my blog every once in awhile to make sure it looks halfway decent. Let me know if you run into any issues and I’ll see what can be done. Thanks!

      • I have difficulties getting to your comments section but that really is strange they put this to spam! They are plotting against me! Lol. That is a helluva a good deal though! You can’t beat that! Your site looks badass when I can access it!😍 Maybe it’s just me. I have technological difficulties!

        • Well, if it makes you feel any better, in the reverse…I can’t “like” any of the comments on my blog! And I can’t figure it out to save my life. I thought it might be the theme, but since followers can like the comments…I just don’t understand. I feel like I need to put up a big announcement that if you commented and didn’t insult me, it should be assumed that I liked the comment. 😀
