Welcome to my new digs!!

Come on in, take off your shoes, and make yourself at home. I’m a lousy hostess but there’s bound to be some snacks around here, somewhere.

So, you like? I have been working like a busy busy little beaver with a generous allotment of help from both Jay and Zoot. Go show those two some loooooove because I know I’m feeling it! All of my dreams about moving off of Blogger have become a reality thanks to them!

Please change your blogrolls and bookmarks to https://wouldashoulda.com/ and kiss the Blogger site good-bye. I jest. Do not kiss Blogger; it does not deserve your love. Thumb your nose at it. If you’re not feeling that childish, just kind of give it the cold shoulder.

I have migrated all my old posts but the migration process is a gigantic hack and so there will be weirdness with some of them. Sorry. Deal with it. (Did I mention I’m a lousy hostess? Have some chips and shut up.) Also, there’s no way to migrate Haloscan comments, so even my most brilliant and witty posts appear to be neglected and ignored here, but oh well.

And now, let the love flow and the settling in commence. I may even get back to actually writing about stuff sometime soon. If I ever stop admiring my pretty, pretty site.

  3. T.Marie

    Hey Mir! Gorgeous new place you’ve got here. Of course I’m pouting ’cause I’m still on Blogger. You can give me the ‘neener, neener, neener’ now.

  4. Kristie

    Very nice!!!

  5. Busy Mom

    Woo hoo!!!

  6. Jenny

    Hooray! It’s marvelous, dahlin!

    This looks awesome in IE. Just so you know? Safari eats it and spits it back out. (The whole page is squished into a column the size of your sidebar). But this is indeed GORGEOUS.


  8. diane

    Gorgeous, Lady Mir!!

  9. Sheryl

    Looks great in Mozilla too. It’s so lurvly. So how did you do all this? Was it hard?

  10. Kira

    Soooo pretty! A design worthy your prose.

  11. Martha

    Great new site!

  12. Dixiesnshin

    Love it!!!! This is great. I thought you were kidding, but now I see you meant it. I wasn’t all that impressed with Blogger either, just hate that Xanga doesn’t allow comments from non Xangans.

    Don’t beat yourself up over it. WE all had to start somewhere and Blogger was the starting place for most of us. Congrats on the new digs, they look great.

    Look… you are all grown up!!! And I remember when you were just a wee tot… stumbling onto the Blogosphere, skinning your knees and taking those tentative first steps. Memories….

    Beautiful site. I love the old memories feel to it. Nice job Zootster.

    I seriously need to get off blogger too. You are inspiring me.

  37. rudolf

    Oh, and I wanted to report that it looks great in Firefox, and it looks much better on my Sidekick II than the blogspot site did!
