Blog house keeping

  If you haven't happened to notice - I'm doing a little house cleaning over here. And by "I" I mean Brian. He's always so kind and obliging. Brian guessed exactly one person would notice (Christopher!), so I'd like to point out that way up at the URL bar you'll notice you're no longer at a blog spot or even The Meagher Covenant but at our very own website. I know - I'm only six years behind the eight ball.

   I've wanted to change things up for quite a while, and since I move at sloths speed when it comes to change - here we finally are. You'll notice the blog is now at www.ofthistleandthyme.com. And bear with me, or just stop reading, to all of you who already know this  - but you can still get here by typing in The Meagher Covenant.  So if you are like me and don't like change,  just keep doing what you're doing. If you're of the subscribing type - I don't know what to tell ya. I'm figuring this all out as we go. But I've been warned that past subscriptions don't always translate to a new site. You've been warned - or blessed, whichever way you choose to view it.

  The scoop is - I've never really cared for the name of the blog. It was a default name that happened to work after we had tried 88 other names when Brian and I decided to start a dual blog way back when. So that would be quite a while ago since I'm pretty sure back in 2011 was when Brian last posted. I'd link back to those first few posts, but they're embarrassing to say the least, and I think I remember a car accident being the way Brian announced we had a blog (and that I was pregnant with Rori). We were so romantic and original back then. Glad to see nothing's changed.

  So, we've nixed the blogspot and hopefully got most things translated to this new place.  I'll eventually (as in slowly like a sloth) get everything changed and new, and hopefully better around here. I mean, you can see that I haven't even officially changed the blog's name - not that anything has ever been remotely official around here. BUT if you do happen to notice any quirks or something that isn't working on the blog, please let me know! I'll do my best to have Brian fix it, or just give in and have a real blog designer get to work.

 And that's all, folks.

Thanks for sticking around and bearing  with this awkwardness of a post. Blurry baby pictures coming to you soon - promise!

  2. I had these exact same thoughts THIS MORNING about my blog - haha! So I curious about how you made the switch from blogspot - do you have to pay a fee? Which website co do you use? Let me know - I think it's so funny that I am reading my own thoughts :)

    1. Guess it just must be the time! Funny. i tried figuring out how to email you, but no such luck, so here's what I know: Honestly, so very little because Brian did it all. Ha! We already owned the URL ofthistleandthyme because of our shop, and we paid for that through godaddy.com. I'm not sure how Brian got The Meagher Covenant to forward to this site, but it didn't take him too terribly long. And I still run the blog through blogger.

  3. Congrats! I remember how long it took me to change over to a self hosted site and still also tinker with the idea of having an actual website designer help. (I still have been typing "the meagher covenant" by the way) ;)
