Well, blog friends, I was so hungry for my dinner tonight that I forgot to take a picture for you. I can assure you, though, it was delicious.
Tonight for dinner, Scott made me 2 grilled cheese sandwiches (with ooey, gooey Velveeta cheese) and tomato soup. It was seriously so good. He wouldn’t tell me what he put in the tomato soup, but he made it a bit spicy. Mmmm. The thought is helping to keep me warm…except for my feet. They’re freezing.
In other news, I am considering moving my blog from WordPress to Blogspot. So many other fabulous blogs I read are based from these hosts. One of the other reasons I am considering this is because I was looking into the idea of getting sponsors. I set everything up with Passionfruitads.com, because it says it will work with WordPress. After doing that, I discover that WordPress doesn’t allow advertisements from 3rd party, blah blah blah somethingorother.
I need your help because I have some concerns. Here are my concerns AND my reasons WHY I would like to move.
1. I don’t want to sound like I’m begging, but moving my blog would be a lot of work. I probably wouldn’t move my “random thoughts” like my link-up posts, but I would be moving all of my recipes over. SO if I do this on the basis of having sponsors, do I have any readers out there who would be willing to sponsor Rebeckann’s Random Thoughts & Recipes??
2. Readers I sponsor (*ahem* Kim, Tarole, & Ashley) would it be difficult to change my button on your pages so it directs people to my new blog address?? (Speaking of the awesome ladies I sponsor, you should go link up with them for “My Harry Potter Fix”!)
3. To follow a blog on WordPress, I need to add your blog’s link to my list. HOWEVER, WordPress seems to think I don’t need to see all the posts from blogs I follow all the time or something. For example, I will see that Kristin from Kristin’s kNook wrote a new post from my Twitter feed, but when I log in to WordPress, it’s not there. So I have to go to “edit” my list and click on the link to her blog from there. Sometimes, this causes me to miss posts. ANNOYING.
4. WordPress makes it EXTREMELY difficult to know how many followers you have. It counts people who come to your blog from the link on my Facebook page or Twitter. It counts the people who actually have subscribed through e-mail. WordPress, I’m not trying to be modest, but I reeeeaaalllly don’t think I have 400+ followers, when some of my amazing blog friends don’t have that many. But thanks.
There are probably more things, but they’re not coming to mind right now.
Please let me know your thoughts! I’d love to hear what you have to say.
OH, and by the way, Ashley’s second edition of her newsletter came out today. Have you subscribed yet?? Head on over and do it! (Like now!)
