Welcome To My New Home! Please Help

by Spicie Foodie on August 3, 2011

Hello again! So here you are at my new virtual home. Welcome! Did you notice the new domain? Yep, Spicie Foodie’s new domain is http://www.spiciefoodie.com/ no more .blogspot.com.

I hope you guys enjoy the slightly updated look of the site. While 99% of the new site is finished, over the next weeks or so there will be a few more things added. But for now I need some much deserved chilaxing time. It has been an emotional, lack of sleep, nerve wrecking but really fun experience all at once. You see my CSS, PHP, programming skills were very small. But with the help of a really neat program called Thesis, much learning and reading I was able to turn my blog from an ordinary default theme to this customized look. Not to toot my own horn but I am quite proud what I have created.

So why the move you ask?  I feel a little sad leaving Blogger for WordPress, because Blogger is why and how I learned basic html code. Blogger has been a loyal free service that I couldn’t complain too much about. Besides when something is free to us we really shouldn’t complain too much. Anyways, the main reason for the switch is that I’ve had my .com reserved for 2 years and it was time to put it to use. After all I am paying for hosting. The other main reason is that now with WordPress I have more freedom to add as much function/customization as I want as well as being able to use my FTP to upload to my server. One of the great new features I’m really linking is that  now we can all reply to individual comments. This should be a better conversation starter.

I invite you to take a look around. This is how I need your help 1.If you see anything wrong or missing please could you kindly do me the favor of adding a comment or sending me an email? Thanks I’d really appreciate it. 2. While there is a 301 redirect set for any incoming links from the .blogspot to the .com I want to be double sure. So can you update your link, bookmarks,RSS feed subscriptions, to my site please? For the links I mean if you link to me in your sidebar or links page.

Here is all the information : 
New main link: http://www.spiciefoodie.com/
Link to the YBR page: http://www.spiciefoodie.com/ybr/
New Link to RSS feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/SpicieFoodie
You can now subscribe by email: Check out the sidebar over there →

If there is a social media icon you want added to the share thingy let me know and I’ll add it. Thanks!
