Moving Time!

Don’t get excited all you northern friends and family.  We’re not moving anywhere; we’re not leaving Atlanta any time soon.  So who is moving you ask?  The blog is!  The blog is moving!

You can now find us at Typical Suburban Family.

I promise this is the last move.  I know you just updated all of your subscriptions and RSS feeds 7 months or so ago when I moved from blogger to WordPress, but I’m now on the self hosted version of WordPress and loving it!  I have so much more flexibility with plug-ins and add-ons.  Plus I can customize it way more than I could before and love it!  I even have some great giveaways lined up over the next month or so.

I started with a basic template, but then added and changed and tweaked everything about it and came up with my new blog.  It’s taken me all week to get this up and running, but so far I love it.  Leave me a comment on my new blog and let me know what you think.  I hope you’ll follow me there… I gave several different ways to do so and they are all in the right side bar.  You can subscribe via RSS feed, email or Google friend connect.

So yes, today I am featuring myself on my new blog. Mainly because I’m so proud of myself for designing it and customizing it all on my own with little to no experience doing so.  I only had to drag my hubby into it to troubleshoot the coding if/when I did it incorrectly.  Thank you honey!!

So now go check it out please!

My blog has definitely progressed over the last year and a half.  I started at blogger and a year later I moved over to WordPress.com.  Now I want to switch to my own self hosted WordPress URL.  I purchased my URL a few weeks ago, I know who my hosting site will be and I have been thinking about the new look and new design of my new blog.

And that’s where I’m stuck.

I have no idea how to write the code for the template of this.  I have my colors in mind.  I have created a new custom header, signature and a few buttons.  But now what?

How do I write this out so that it makes sense?  And works?

Anyone have any tips?  Techniques?  Websites that I should be referring to? Has anyone done their own with zero experience?  Am I getting in over my head?
