Hey everyone, welcome to my new blog! You may or may have not realized it looks different, but on a spur-of-the-moment decision I chose to switch to self-hosted. I’ve been blogging for about seven years now, so it was honestly time to do so and put a little bit of an investment into it. I had been thinking about making the switch for a while, but after kind of being in a bit of a reading/blogging slump because of how busy I am during the school semesters, I thought that having an updated blog where I can make more choices might be helpful.

I am so excited right now too! I switched to BookHost with Ashley from Nose Graze. I am so glad I did. Ashley made the switch to seamless and I literally had my brand new blog within a few days! I’d highly suggest going to her if you’re thinking about making the switch.

I also now have access to the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin, and I have to say, I’m loving it! I have a lot of work left to do, though. I’m currently going through all my archive posts to update them with categories/tags and make sure all the reviews look similar and cohesive. That’s definitely going to take a while, but it’ll be worth it in the end!

So, bear with me for the next month while I get everything updated. Some of the archive posts might look a little wonky right now! Other than that, I hope you enjoy the new blog design and remember to follow me on Bloglovin’ to stay updated!

  1. Congratulations on your brand new old blog! You did the right thing by choosing Nose Graze. Ashley is amazing and the UBB plug-in is SO CONVENIENT.

  2. I keep thinking about doing this, but Blogger is just so easy. Plus, cheap. Maybe some day I’ll do it, although after almost 10 years where I am, I can’t imagine switching. I have heard Ashley is amazing, so I’d definitely go with her if I could afford it and decided to. Who knows, if I get a new job in the next year where I get a big enough raise, maybe I can! Looks great! And can’t wait to see how it all goes!
