Changing Domain Names (Heads Up, and Help Needed!)

As you all know, I am expecting our 6th little monkey in March of next year. Because of this, I need to change the name of my blog. With the name change, I have also decided to make the jump to WordPress. I know, I know. I swore up and down that I wouldn’t ever make that change, but Blogger just isn’t cutting it for me anymore. I need to be able to do more with my blog.

With that being said, you may have noticed that lack of giveaways around here this month. That’s because I’m planning on making the big switch later this month, closer to Christmas. Things will be quiet around the net, and I think it will be the best time to make the transfer. I will still be posting over here – and may have a few more quick giveaways up my sleeve, but I sincerely hope that you’ll join my new blog and stick with me during the transfer process.

My new blog will be found at www.blessedbeyondwords.com. My husband thought I should change it to “Six and Still Sane” – which I thought was cute, but I want to remove any reference to any numbers… you know, just in case! ;o) And since God has abundantly blessed me, I figured “Blessed Beyond Words” would be the best way to express that.

I really debated for a long time about changing my domain name. I’ve worked my tail off getting my stats to where they need to be. But, I just can’t ignore the fact that it would always be “5 Vinez Monkeys” no matter how many kids I had, and the thought of that bugs me to death. So, it must be done.

Now, here’s where I need your help. I desperately need some incoming links to my new site. So, if you could add my new button to your sidebar, or add my new blog to your blog roll, I would greatly appreciate it.

The new button can be found in the sidebar, and here’s another way for you to grab it:

Blessed Beyond Words

I’d really appreciate, also, if you could Become a Fan on Facebook. (Since I have one fan, and it’s ME! LOL!)

If you head over to the blog now, you’re not going to see much. I’ve got a TON of work to do this week, and it’s going to be crazy. But, things will be normal soon. I hope.

And, I promise, once we move, I’ll jump right back into posting reviews and giveaways. I just need to inform everyone I work with of the change…. that is proving to be a real nightmare.

Stay tuned, and thanks so much for your continued support!

    My website goes live sometime next week and I'm starting to freak out, websites/blogs are so much work, even if you don't do any of the coding. If you're up to it I'd love to get information on how to do a giveaway on you blog sometime at the beginning of the year.

    Last year at this time I was getting ready for the switch and I'm sooooo glad I did! I was so fed up with Blogger. Don't worry, your stats will get back up there quickly – mine were within 3 months or so. And I LOVE the name of your next blog! I think it fits you, too. 🙂 Though your husband's idea is super cute, too – lol. Too bad you can't somehow do both! Course you could just call your blog one thing (Six and Still Sane) and have the url be mommyisstillsane or something like that so you can always change up the header no matter how many kids you have.

    Course it may not be a good idea to announce you're still sane when maybe you won't always FEEL sane… 😉

    Anyway. Now that I've blabbed forever (why do I always do that here? haha), I'll go like your facebook page and add your button. 🙂 Good luck!

    This probably sounds dumb…but, what's the diff between blogger and wordpress? I just recently changed just my domain name, like 2 days ago , from blogspot to .com but Im still with blogger.

    I'll gladly take your button and put it on my blog I know what you mean about stats, I lost them all with my change. 🙂 GL W/ the transfer.

    I love the new name! And as a side note, I already follow a blog named Six and Still Sane.
