Exciting Blog Changes

Wow… I’ve spent the better part of my day looking into transferring my blog to become self-hosted. I am so tired of not being able to change my design or add widgets for giveaways and so on. That’s what I get for choosing a free blog platform, but now that things are going great and my enthusiasm for blogging is at it’s highest I would like to take it one step further. In the long run I think it will be the right decision for me and the blog. I’ll definitely enjoy the creative freedom.

But let me tell you, it’s all very confusing! I was familiar with the general idea of it, but all the details have me baffled. Now I think I’ve finally made my decision, but it will still take a while before it’s all ready. And until then I’ll still be blogging right here. And don’t worry, all my posts, pages, and comments will be transferred when the change is made. I’m so excited!

If you blog from WordPress and have any questions regarding blogging or becoming self-hoted, I recommend you stop by WPbeginner and search their archives. They have been such a great help to me!

Oh, and while we’re talking about blogging… Right now my cute little banner is up on the right side of lovely Ange’s blog. And she also has a giveaway coming up on Monday, so you should stay tuned!

Now I’m wondering: Are your self-hosted or do you blog from a free platform? And how did you make the decision? If you have any tips, feel free to share them!


My Hair Through The Years

So, here we have perm, straight hair, bangs, no bangs, highlights, almost black, almost orange (in the second one, though it’s hard to tell in that light – don’t dye your hair blond at home!), dark brown, light brown, and blond. Looking back, the perm and the highlights were definitely not my finest moments.

Oh, and none of these are my natural hair color! Haha. I would have to go too far back to find it in a picture. I think the one in the middle is closest, just a bit darker. Think a boring, mousy brown.
If you decide to do something similar on your blog, please let me know! I always think it’s fun to see how different people look with different hair styles. And don’t forget to share which one you wish you hadn’t done, hehe. We all have at least one of those, right?
