Say Hello To My Little Friends IS Moving!

Enough is enough.  WordPress keeps playing with their format and I’m getting tired of finding workarounds.  The only reason my blog is even on this platform is because when I went to start this blog, someone had already used the name on the platform I wanted it to be on originally. (Never mind that they abandoned the blog after about 6 posts, it’s still sitting out there in limbo.)  I’ve not been a big fan of the WordPress platform for numerous reasons and it’s horribly full of glitches on a regular basis.  Over the past year, it has become increasingly obvious to me that WordPress doesn’t want to keep hobby bloggers around either.  I’m constantly bombarded with e-mails trying to sell me upgrades, etc.  I don’t do this blog for profit.  I’ve not made a penny, I don’t get freebies from companies because of my blog, I do it strictly for fun.  I’m not going to pay to do it, and I have a choice of where I have my blog.  And I suspect that at some point, this will no longer be a free space.

That said, I will definitely be moving the blog soon, my goal is to have it up and running at the new space on the 7th anniversary at the beginning of July.  I’m going to start posting at both sites beginning with the next post (which sounds more complicated than it really is) for testing purposes and at some point in June (maybe sooner), I will post the new website address.  I am going to also work on getting all the posts transferred from here to there, that may take some time though!

Thanks for your patience in the upcoming weeks!  I appreciate all of your comments and support.  Stay tuned!

  1. Ooh, let me know if you find a good alternative! I’ve been on blogger, but the community there isn’t as good…

    • It will be at Blogger, I like the platform and used it for a previous blog I had. I’ve not really interacted with the blogging community outside of fellow doll bloggers, so have nothing to really compare it to! LOL

    • Thanks! It’s pretty much going to be the same as here, but I’m going to do some clean-up in the process of the move.

  2. Hoping all goes well with the move. ❤
    Definitely frustrating when sites get greedy. I'm still sad about the photo editor I used to use, but love the one I use now. And it truly stinks when software updates make things harder not easier. I'm still getting used to my new phone and its camera.

    • It seems like these sites all make everything geared towards one type of user and forget about the rest of the people! Facebook is a perfect example, the mobile version works well but the laptop version has so many glitches, it’s ridiculous.

      • So very true! They tend to think everyone is using their smartphones or tablets for everything.

  3. Hi this is Grace here I am wondering on what platform was that other blog with your blog name on the blogger that you said abandoned their blog after only 6 posts. Also please check out my blog because I added some new posts!

    • It was someone who had used it long before I started this blog, not a doll blog. Just one of the hazards of trying to come up with a good name for a blog! It happens a lot though, I’ve seen a lot of blogs come and go over the years since I started about 15 years ago. I don’t think people realize how much work it is. Or they expect to start the blog and instantly have people reading/following/commenting.
