If you’ve ever rebranded a blog, let me give you a *HUG*

How is time moving so fast? ** What’s Happening? ———————————————————— As you already know, I’ve been busy rebranding my blog in my “spare” time. If you’ve ever wanted to rebrand, or already have, let’s take a moment and share a *HUG*. It is stressful! I’ve learned quite a bit too. * Like maybe go ahead and pay for the pro version of a plugin to change all the instances of one domain name to the next, so the right instances move and the wrong ones remain. * Like even though you think you have this techy stuff down, something will break, and you’ll have to wait for tech support to bail you out. * I also tried to change my settings from forwarding my domain email (apparently frowned upon) to “fetching” in Gmail. As it turns out, I did not set it up correctly. Any emails sent to julie@velvet-rose.net were not being imported. So I missed 3 weeks of emails while I was so busy and didn’t notice! I get so many emails in my Gmail, since I use that as my primary email, so I just didn’t catch that anything was missing. I feel awful but at least they were safe on my server and I’m caught up now. I just hope the people I’ve “ignored” will still want to work with me. * But also, it feels great to have accomplished this change, and I love how my blog looks! Have you ever made that kind of mistake and had something huge go wrong on you? Hit reply and tell me about it. You’re receiving my occasional blog newsletter, which I will send to catch up on some interesting things and say hello. If you would like to receive the blog RSS feed by email, that can be accomplished through the Feedburner subscription (velvet-rose.us3.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=5803264f06130870fe0352007&id=6b67c3f976&e=5914c3f8b6) . ** Guest posting opportunities and a digital product ———————————————————— I’m starting the blogging series on nannies/childcare next week and already have a few posts scheduled that share our child care decision process and I also have some guest posts lined up. I’d love to continue to include guest posts from others who want to share their experiences with nannies, being a nanny, or any other childcare related topics. Get in contact with me if you want to participate. This will align with a digital product I’m releasing: a Nanny Contract Template (or a Nanny Agreement, if that’s what you call it). We wrote our own contract (my husband is an attorney, after all) and I have turned it into a template to help others in hiring their own nannies. ** Reader Freebie ———————————————————— Did you grab a copy (velvet-rose.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5803264f06130870fe0352007&id=22771ae5a8&e=5914c3f8b6) of the spreadsheet I developed for tracking your blogging income and expenses? It is a freebie for my lovely readers. What do you think of my new look? Please let me know if you notice any issues. Hope 2016 continues to bring you joy!
