Welcome, Welcome!

So, I join the ranks of the self-hosted blogs. It’s new for me…but so far, it’s ok!  A little frustration but I’m expecting good things. Right now, I’m using wordpress. It has worked for me in the past and I like how I don’t really need to know how to write code to make myself a website.

Well, what is going to change you might ask?  Well, first one thing that won’t-this blog is still about my awesome coonhounds!  The title of my blog has changed. I wanted something a bit more “general” especially since the old tagline didn’t really fit us anymore.

The girls now have a Facebook Page. This is what you need to go “like” in order to get blog post updates along with some different, exclusive content. If you aren’t on the FB page, you might miss something! The Royal Coonhounds

I am going to try to start more interaction with my readers. This means, I’m going to try and start replying to comments! If you have felt like my blog has been a wasteland for your thoughts…fear no more!  I will also be interacting on Facebook. I’m already on Facebook all the time, so we all might as well hang out!

Right now, I’ve kept the old theme. But, I do believe that will be changing soon. I want a more customizable layout. For now, I’m sticking with the familiar but be looking for that to change again in the coming weeks.

Merchandise. No, I’m not going to be selling y’all stuff (although, if you really want a t-shirt with my blog name, just let me know 😉 )  But I want to be able have dog stuff with my dogs and their own site. Now I have the site, I just need the swag.  And I’m sure Grannie won’t mind toting around some awesome personalized gear!

So, please update your bookmarks, google reader, RSS feed or however it is you find me. Like the Facebook page and you should get the new posts in your news feed.

  2. Congratulations on the move! I hope you’re as happy with it as I’ve been. One thing that I learned was to add the Google Friend Connect widget on my blog. It just makes it easier for a lot of people to follow, but it’s a matter of personal preference.

  4. Well done on the move. I shifted from Blogger to self-hosting in about June. Had a few hiccups, mostly from me fiddling with stuff I knew nothing about, but basically it’s been great. And it’s a good feeling to own your own domain name:)

    I’ve updated your RSS feed so won’t lose you! I had/have intentions of interacting more with commenters too, but always seem to run out of time! Too many blogs to keep up with!
