I am so excited to let everyone know that in the very near future, Royal Icing Diaries will be moving to a hosted site.
Now you may be asking, “what in the hell does that mean”?
I had no idea either until a few months ago, so don’t feel bad.
It’s a good thing, I promise.
You see, currently as you know, you have to include “wordpress” in the web address if you have any hopes of actually reaching the blog site.
Self-hosting the site (paying for a server) will allow me to add all kinds of fun stuff to the site, and the web address will be shorter since I won’t be using wordpress.com.
The new address will simply be:
In other words, I will have a lot more creative control over everything on the site which is what I want.
To say I am thrilled is an understatement and hopefully everyone who follows the blog will be too. I promise bigger and better things to come at http://www.royalicingdiaries.com.
By self-hosting I’ll be able to customize Royal Icing Diaries to my heart’s content, have a new design, better links, a print button on each page that allows you to print a recipe, and all kinds of other things.
I’m hoping that the migration will go off without a hitch and there will be very little “down time” in the process.
I will let you know when it will happen but look forward to it being within the next two weeks with any luck. And once it does, please feel free to let me know what you think of the new look and feel of the blog. All feedback is welcome.
Once the change is made, you’ll be directed to the new web address if you have the blog bookmarked, but only for a while. So please bookmark the new address once I let you know it’s up and running.
Thanks to all of you who follow and support the blog, and the Facebook Page. I just love writing the blog and you have no idea how much it means to me that you are interested in it and keep following it. I hope you all continue to share the blog with your friends and family.
