If you remember, I posted about a week and a half ago about some exciting news. Specifically, this post. I was hush hush in my post and gave nothing away as to what the news was! Yes, I am a tease. Well, I’m going to reveal the news (that’s if you haven’t already visited and seen.guessed).
Are you ready?! … *drumroll*…
New Blog Design:
The blog has had a complete re-design! From..
OK, I guess you won’t find it as exciting as me, but I’m excited! I hope you like the new design and find the site easier to navigate n’ all that jazz.
New Domain Name:
I’ve also got my own custom domain:
- FROM: http://sweet2eatbaking.blogspot.com
- TO: http://www.sweet2eatbaking.com
Yay! (no need to upgrade your RSS).But if you do have any issues, please do shoot me an email.
I also wanted to show you my quirky new ‘bedtime blogging ritual’ set-up. I do my blog posting from my trusted iMac using MarsEdit. But when I visit blogs to comment that I’m subscribed to, I do it all from my iPad at night, in my bed. Mmm cozy! If you have an iPad (or iPhone, or Mac) and use RSS, check out the Reeder app, it’s the best I’ve found so far and it’s now free!
Liebster Blog Award:
And finally, in other news, I received my first ever blog award from the fantastic blogger, The Cake Chica. Thank you. I’m very honoured!
I don’t speak German. I took it at school but that was now, umm, 14 years ago! *gasp!* And I don’t really remember much of it to be honest! But apparently “Liebster” means dearest, favourites, or beloved and is for bloggers with under 200 followers (on the blogger platform). As my blog is new (started in Dec), I’m well within that range.
I’m still trying to figure whether this is a blessing or a good ol’ punch in the face, hehe! Ice, please!
Here’s my share of some of my favourite blogs with 200 or less followers (I’ve just realised I don’t have all that many subscriptions to blogs with under 200 followers so it was hard to come up with the these 5) The obvious choice would also be The Cake Chica but I don’t give to receive, or vice versa in this case. But here they are:
- Fairy Cakes and Sprinkles
- Hannah’s Buns Blog
- Adventures Made From Scratch
- Cookies, Cakes & Bakes
- The Little House of Cupcakes – This seems like her business site but I still love looking at her creations.
UPDATE: Sadly it seems that all of the above blogs are no longer updated. 🙁 One has even been removed.
There’s apparently rules too. I dislike rules and tend to break them so shhh, you didn’t hear that from me, mmkay ?! But I’ll comply, just this once.
