New Digs/100th Postaversary

February 12th, 2007

housewarm1.jpgWelcome to my new home! In celebration of my new home and my 100th Postaversary, I will have a drawing for this darling Japanese quilty-craft book appropriately titled “House”. On Saturday (2-17-07) Friday (2-16-07) I’ll draw a name from a comment left on this post for this darling book I got at Kinokuniya in Beaverton, OR. I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments you left on the Bloggy Love Drug post. I had no idea my jar would be filled with so much BLD! You guys are GREAT and THIS IS WHY I blog - because of you!

housewarm2.jpgIt was time to kiss the “B word” (Blogger) good-bye and hello to WordPress.com (I’m actually using WordPress.org)! Moving over was a snap, but re-hacking all my hacks was a chore and a half. I hope this will be an end to all the problems I had with Blogger. I still have a few glitches here and there with font size and color… and a few little tweaky tweaks that need to be done… but I think I’m good to go! Some of the posts and comments didn’t move over that well. The dates are whacky and your names are not linked with your blogs (I’m still working on trying to fix that). I’m just glad I was able to transfer everything over (another gold star for WordPress). All new comments should be fine (typing with my fingers crossed).

I’m hoping making a comment will be a breeze now. No more word verification here. Though… the first time you comment your post will be held for moderation. Once your first comment is approved, you’ll be free to post comments with no moderation or word verification. Easy cheezy, eh! This is not to have you wait in line for the bouncer to let you in… it’s to keep the rif-raf spammers out.

I have a favor… if you spot anything out of whack, please don’t hesitate to mention it! Especially you PC users, as I have no idea how everything is functioning and looking on a non-Mac computer. I appreciate it so much!

Welcome to my new home and thank you for visiting! Putting your feet on the coffee table is allowed and encouraged! - Monica

    OMG… thank you all for the wonderful comments you’ve left for me. I’m truly in awe and touched by you guys!

    Thanks too for the bug reports and being beta testers of sorts. It’s been a challenge for me to have my blog here be exactly like my blog when it was over at Blogger. Kind of like moving your furniture from a round house into a square house and having fit exactly the same. Please don’t be shy about letting me know if you see bugs! I appreciate it so much!

    Bloggy Love to you all!

    A change is as good as a holiday, they say! Everything looks great. I posted my pot-holder today…I can’t wait for my partner to receive it.

    Happy 100th!

  37. The fabulous Angelina allegedly said:

    At some point please explain to me why you chose Wordpress over Typepad? I have been contemplating moving too but have no idea how to choose.

    Looks great!

  38. The fabulous Wende allegedly said:

    Ok, now I feel bad, bad, bad! I didn’t think of begging flour! You’re so right, I could have asked you… but I was just too overwhelmed to think of a solution. S i g h.

    Forgive me?? :D

    I don’t know why you’d feel bad! But if it makes you feel better… you can treat me to a glass of wine! - Monica

  39. The fabulous Wende allegedly said:

    You’re on! Let’s get together next week sometime. :D

    Hi Monica - I just found your GORGEOUS blog through a comment you made over at Kirsty’s (Two Lime Leaves)… can I be entered into the bloggy love contest to, please, huh, huh?
    Aren’t Japanese craft books/mags just the coolest? Alas, no big bookstores near me, and limited funds - but when I get down to Sydney next, look out!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
