The new and improved Mrs H’s favourite things

The time has come to unveil my new blog design. Welcome to the new and improved Mrs H’s favourite things.

Having been to Blogfest in early November, I decided that my blog was looking jaded and needed a refresh. It paled in comparison to other blogs and it wasn’t portraying the right impression. I also wanted to have more controlย  and own the copyright of my posts and photos. I had been thinking of moving to a self-hosted WordPress blog for a while but found the idea daunting. Blogfest gave me the courage to take the plunge.

I knew that I didn’t have the time, knowledge or inclination to do the design and transfer myself. I had also heard horror stories of the problems faced by other bloggers when they had tried to manage everything on their own. That was not for me!

I spent a month searching through the web and looking for someone I could trust with my little project. Eventually, I came across Jo at Geek Fairy. I loved the designs that she had produced for other bloggers. But the thing that appealed most was that her designs were varied, clean and fresh.

I emailed her and got a very quick response. Jo was able to manage the whole project herself. This was the clincher and a few days later she began the work on my new blog.

Jo was amazing. She took my vague creative brief and has produced a blog that I love. It is a perfect Christmas present and I am delighted that I am able to finally share it with you, my dear readers.

I would love to know what you think. I really hope you love the new blog design as much as I do. Have you seen the new logo? Isn’t it the cutest thing ever?

Hugs

Mrs H

    Hi,

    Love the new blog design. Well done! Doing anything major to your blog is really daunting. I know that I need to make mine a bit more professional, sleek and evocative of me but I need to figure out how best to do it.

    Congratulations on taking the plunge. X

      Thanks so much for your comment. It is pretty nerve wracking changing your blog and especially moving to self-hosted. But it was the best thing for my blog and I love the design. It is perfect and exactly what I wanted. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    Looks fab – I had a wee makeover recently too and it makes such a huge difference to how you feel about your blog/blogging in general I think!

    LOVE it! How exciting for you!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am just in the process of organising the transfer of my blog to self-hosted!! Have been speaking just this afternoon about the worry of losing any posts! So glad to hear that you had a nice easy experience. Am looking forward to being able to say the same thing in the new year! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Caro. Thanks for your lovely comment. It is very stressful making the move to self-hosted. I am so pleased that I had someone to do it all for me. Jo was brilliant and answered all my stupid questions too. Good luck with the transfer. I can’t wait until the New Year to see how it all looks. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
