Changes: New Blog, New Name

Posted October 17, 2013 by Bonnie in Announcements / 11 Comments


There have been big changes, although I’m sure that’s obvious. I went from Sweet Tidbits to For the Love of Words. From Blogger to WordPress. From stripes and polka dots to paint splotches. From my iconic picture of a sunny meadow to some strange random child with bubbles. (That is me by the way. A couple decades ago.) Blogger was causing me far too many problems than I cared to continue dealing with and I’ve been itching for a change.

So yes, big changes but I am absolutely loving WordPress and so glad I was given the opportunity to make the change hassle-free. I had the indispensable help of Ashley with Creative Whim who not only did my migration but is responsible for my gorgeous design. I know. It’s less colorful and clearly missing polka dots but it’s simplistic and less colorful but is so much more me. I love it and I hope you do too!

In the bottom right corner is my new WordPress follow button where you’ll get all my new posts automatically sent to your e-mail. My Bloglovin’ button is below (or the cute little heart over to the right). I lost all of my Bloglovin’ followers with the change because apparently that is one thing that does not redirect. Boo-hoo.

Follow on Bloglovin

I also noticed that those of you that had my blog set up on their Feeds? Well, my feed address changed too so that’ll need to be updated. Pain in the butt, I know, but I hope my followers stick with me (and re-find me if necessary). I’m in the process of trying to make a new blog button too so keep an eye out for that.

So what do you think of my new design? Of my new blog name? Would love to have your feedback!

    • I know. CHANGES. So problematic.
      I can’t tell you how often I was constantly told Sweet Tidbits seemed like it should be a food blog. And sure enough when I went to go purchase my domain and was going to go with it was already taken. And it was a food blog. So oh well!

  2. I simply adore both, Bonnie! I liked your old blog, of course, but I know what you mean about there being too many problems on Blogger. I am very hesitant to make changes, but even I have been considering a move to WordPress. I’m glad you’re happy, it looks fabulous, and I have you on Bloglovin’ so I’ll be here often, as usual. 🙂

  3. Bonnie, Bonnie, Bonnie! I LOVE the look of your new site, and I love the new name, too! The greys and white are so lovely, and although I liked your previous ice cream colors, you can see your content better this way, too.

    I am very nervous about our own migration at the end of the month (yay Ashley!), but seeing how happy you are definitely makes me much more confident about it, hah.

    Thanks for the heads up about the Bloglovin thing, too–I’ll have to adjust my settings to follow your new URL.
