2009: Planning

I recently upgraded WordPress on this blog and decided a makeover was in order. It took several tries (I hoped to find a magazine style layout that worked to my liking, but no luck), and I really like the new look. Fresh and simple at the same time. I hope you all like it too. [...]

(Surprise! I have finally rolled out my new blog theme. Simple, but cute, and totally me. Stop by and check it out!)

Remember these socks? Frogged them. I thought the yarn (Omo) would be nice with something lacy. How about Jeanie? Pretty cables and dropped stitches? What could not be more fun?

I’m still behind with posts, so many pictures to sort through and and posts to proofread.

Meanwhile, I was finally able to merge my old Wordpress feed with FeedBurner. I had signed up for FB ages ago, but couldn’t find an easy solution at the time. ESCknits at Ravelry clued me in to FeedSmith. This plugin [...]

Nearly there…

I’ve transferred all my pictures, and most of my posts. I still have about 37 posts and accompanying umpteen comments to transfer. Then I’ll finalize a new header and any last-minute tweaks. Fingers crossed, by this Sunday, I’ll make the final switch to WordPress. My URL will still be the same, but the feed URL [...]

Well… I’ve decided to install WP in a test folder to see if I can get everything moved over and setup to my liking. I gotta say that was the easiest installation ever, and I’ve tested various blog and CMS platforms during the past 3 years. Nice!!

Remember these Halloween treat bags I posted earlier? Turns out Nicole is right about the black bag being a cat! My mom and I couldn’t figure it out, I think because the lighting was pretty bad and it was all floppy. There’s a much better picture at the store’s website. Though I haven’t installed WordPress, I’ve [...]
