It’s finally here! After a blogging hiatus, I’m back with a new site! This is a transition I’ve been meaning to make for years, and am so thrilled to have finally done it.
Most of you here are probably familiar with my previous blog, amarixe.com, and may be wondering, why the change?! Several factors played into this transition. For starters, I’ve been wanting to switch from the Blogger platform to a separately hosted WordPress site for a long time. While Blogger is great and extremely user friendly, a WordPress setup offers so much more in terms of design and capability.
The transition to this new site took much longer than expected. One challlenge was learning how to use WordPress/write CSS code. I considered hiring somebody to do it all, but I’m the kind of person who likes to know how everything runs, so I decided to take the hard route and learn a few things myself. A lot of Google searching and long hours later, I managed to get everything just how I like it!
I had a lot of difficulty trying to import my old blog into this site while still keeping links intact. I decided to use a new domain name, but I struggled with getting my hands on allisonanderson.com because it was already taken (no site was on it, but it was already purchased). Long story short, the process of contacting the owner and offering to purchase the domain took much longer than I expected. At one point, after not having any luck, people even suggested I try switching up spelling to find an available domain (hence the brief -en change). Then when I thought all was lost, everything came through in my favor! YAY!
Amarixe.com will remain exactly as is, but at this time I will no longer be posting there.
What can you expect from this new site? A little bit of everything. Lots of beauty and style posts (obviously!), DIY, lifestyle, travel, and just tidbits of happiness! I’ll be posting regularly, but right now I don’t have a specific schedule in mind. Once I get back into the swing of things, maybe I’ll set one!
I’m so excited to get back to blogging, I’ve missed you guys! I hope you all like the new page!
