Happy 4 Year Blogoversary To Me – I’ve Changed My Blog Name

Posted November 11, 2015 in Giveaway / 46 Comments



Today marks the beginning of my fifth year blogging.  I may not be consistent but I’m still here.

Four years ago, I started blogging on the Blogger platform.  I had a blogspot address but after only one month, I bought the domain.



In July of 2012, I switched to WordPress.org and bought a custom template from Rachel @ Parajunkee.  She was super easy to work with!



So it only made sense that after 3 more years, I would want to update my template again.  My reading tastes have changed drastically, too.  So now I work a TweakMe 2 theme from Ashley @ NoseGraze.


I’m still working on changing my blog colors, some design details, and fonts but I need to actually change my name at some point!  Today is the day!  And YES, I think my blog will be doing wonky thinks for a day or two while my database becomes “happy” again.  Jetpack is currently screaming at me about something or another I broke.  Blech!


To celebrate all the craziness, I thought I’d get rid of some ARCs/finished copies and giveaway a book or two.


Adult Pile of ARCs/Finished copies/signed copy (US ONLY, sorry)

Your choice of one of my favorite “Happily Ever After” books that I read in 2015 (physical copy or ebook if physical not available) from either Amazon or Book Depository (value up to $20usd, but you only get one book)

As always, my usual rules are in effect – for more details, check my policies above.


And if I sound tired, it’s because I am. This blogging 4 years is hard work! Especially when you throw in a name change… What the hell was I thinking?

      I’m still working on the design but thanks a lot! I love the colors, too. I’m doing it myself so I’m glad you’re not laughing!!!

  3. thats totally awesome, grats on name change! I remember when I moved my site. Ashley was awesome, even with my 100 questions. I felt like I just learned how to deal with blogger and now I had to learn how to deal with wordpress and changing the tweakme!

      I had it! I just had to fix my 301’s this morning and that led to the whole dropping down the Google Analytics hole…. I’m climbed out for now.

      Hell, I don’t know if I still like my graphics but they’ll do for now 🙂

      I’m gonna personally come down there and throw pebbles at your windows until your puppies wake up barking – in other words, you kill me!! NOOOOO (if it’s what I think it is, otherwise… *red face*)

      bwahahahahahahahaha… I crack myself up…. oh, and the button is up, I was fixin’ 301 this morning

    I love the new look it’s beautiful! I’ve just recently stumbled upon your big before the big change and I must say you handled the switch flawlessly. Can’t wait to read your reviews and hope you have many more lovely blogging years. 💚

  5. Congrats on your four years. I hit my anniversary next week, and I haven’t even thought about marking it. It has been a long road, right? I have learned a lot, and now I am taking a step back and blogging for me. I am sure you are too. Congrats on the new design. Best of luck.

    BEFORE WE WERE STRANGERS!!!!!! AHHHHHH! So so so good!!! The Deal, The Friend Zone and All Broke Down are also my faves!! I read The Game Plan and quite enjoyed it. I also requested The Score because I need Dean in my life!!!

    I just noticed you have my blog featured on your "Blogs I Read" and I smiled so big! I hadn't paid attention to that before (if it was there) and seeing my blog there it's so amazing. Thank you for following my blog and for always showing your support!
