 Blog Update

Hello…it’s me…I was wondering if..

OK. I’m going to stop right there, I’m not even an Adele fan. Yikes.

Anyway, I thought I would take this minute to update you on what’s happening behind the scenes on the blog. Woot! Have you guessed already?

Say My Name, Say My Name…

I’d been wanting to change my blog name for sometime now. The old one was just so local and this was highlighted to me through feedback from a certain website. Essentially, said website involves sending off a link to your blog and having some random person reviewing it. (You actually get a video back and see how people navigate around your blog while they talk about it). It totally confirmed that I needed to change my name…most people didn’t get it…until they checked my About Me page. After much deliberation, I decided on From Plate to Pen. So as the name suggests, it’s primarily still a food blog, but I hope to bring other topics to the table (pardon the pun).

A Design For Life

I am not a techy person at all. Just trying to get my custom domain changed and the old one redirected was a royal pain in the ass. The header I’m using is some God awful makeshift thing I managed to put together in Picmonkey, to tide me over until I find someone who can actually design something to be proud of. Coding and templates scare me even more! Now you know why I said things won’t be ready until January… HOPEFULLY.

Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

I haven’t made up my mind if I’m going to stay with blogger, or immigrate to WordPress or Squarespace. What do you reckon I should do? They all have pros and cons. Blogger I’m used to…Wordpress looks a little scary, especially for someone as non-techy as I am. Squarespace apparently is great for the non-techy…hmmm…help me decide!

P.S. If you follow me, please be sure to update your links! Thanks you.

    The new blog is looking fantastic! I wouldn’t worry too much about the header for now it is clean and clear. What more could you want 🙂 which website was it out of curiosity that you used to get the feedback? I’d love to know more?
