Change is Coming

I mentioned in my last post how I really desire to take my blog to the next level. I want to become a credible reader, be able to earn some money through my blog, and really gain some readability so that perhaps, one day in the future, my name will be more well known in the cyber world and it might be easier to get a book published. That's the idea anyway.

Thank the good Lord for a husband who likes to save money like me and who looooves to learn new things. I showed him a blog design from etsy that I really liked and that I could have customized to my own liking. It costs about $40 though and truth be told, I really don't want to pay for that. So, me being the non-researcher, and hubby being the researcher, he started looking into writing html code (which is confusing and ridiculous and "ain't nobody got time for that") but he came across something else that does not really require code. I know some bloggers that use WordPress and let me tell you, it is SOOOO much more than just a blogger site. They offer free or REALLY cheap web hosting, domain names, etc. It's supposedly easily customizable without having to write code or copy and paste code. Huge and well-known companies use WordPress for their blogs. So, essentially, I'm planning on getting my own domain for my blog, and doing a total revamp. I'll no longer be using Blogger but I will still share posts via Facebook for my faithful readers. You are part of the reason I desire to do this. We're still in the beginning stages and doing some research but hubby has already told me not to worry, that he will create me something amazing. I totally believe him.

I'll let you know when we're rolling out the new site. I am so excited. While it may cost a couple dollars a month for web hosting, we've talked it over and hubby said that if it was important to me, then we should go for it. I love having a supportive husband who understands my dreams and wants to help me pursue them. I told him he would have to be my blog manager, in charge of design and layout. He can totally do it. Deep inside, he's a computer geek. Perhaps, if he becomes well-versed in this sort of thing, it would make him marketable to design companies. Who knows?!

I have no idea how long this whole process will take and I will not go public until I have it exactly the way I want it. So, be patient, faithful friends and readers. Change is on the way...and it's going to be great!
