Ugh! Guys, this whole “technology” part of running a blog is beyond me. I like writing a lot, but the rest of having a lifestyle blog is a bit stressful sometimes. I have to keep things pretty bare bones since I need to get help for any extra computer use (Because of the pain in my arms and my inability to sit at a computer for very long), but I know I have a little bit of work to do to update things.
So I’m going to very s l o w l y be making some changes. This is a reminder that as soon as I can get help I will be changing my URL to KristaLauren.com, so stay posted!
I’m excited about some little surprises I have planned for my Single In The Suburbs family. Y’all will definitely be getting some new little treats in the next couple of weeks, and I can’t wait to continue to walk through life with y’all by my side. Thank you for being patient and thank you for staying such faithful friends! ❤
As y’all know I haven’t been single for a long time now, and when I first created this website I thought I wouldn’t be in a relationship for a pretty long time. The joke was on me, though, because I met someone really great a lot faster than I anticipated.
Single In The Suburbs is always going to be a part of my brand, but it’s time for me to change to something that’s going to reflect my life today and for years to come.
I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time, as I’ve been resting on my new domain, and I finally finished saving all my drafts and posts just in case something terrible happens when I change websites… Which is probably good because I’m having so much trouble trying to figure out how to get my darn WordPress site to connect to my new URL (I’d like to give a shoutout to my blogging friend Rosie, though, for giving me some encouragement with this big change, as she just did the same thing last week!).
So if you’re having trouble accessing my website, you’re definitely not the only one. I can’t see it anymore either, so I am going to bring in the big guns and get my brother to help me with this mess later this week. My site might be down for a couple of days, but I will absolutely be back! After that you won’t find me on the “Single In The Suburbs” WordPress anymore… You’ll be redirected to my new Dating and Lifestyle website, KristaLauren.com. 🙂
Guys, I am so excited to announce that I will be changing domains very soon! I will be hosting my site on singleinsuburbs.com once I can figure out how to switch domains without losing all my wonderful WordPress followers.
I also recently realized that I have a bunch of people subscribed to get emailed posts every time I publish something new. This is hilariously embarrassing, as I often publish my first drafts and then just quickly re-read over my post to change any typos or crazy bad sentences. If something seems really bad please just visit my site later for a more cleaned up version! Since it’s difficult for me to write a ton with all my chronic pain problems I’ve really had to stop being a perfectionist in my writing and just accept the fact that rough drafts of my thoughts have got to do. Thank you for being patient and kind to me anyway!
Now that I’ve decided to take the plunge to revamp my site a little bit, do y’all have any suggestions for me? If anyone is super-computer savvy and would like to give me a few tips, feel free to message me on Facebook or comment below. I could use all the help I can get! (I love the writing part of blogging but can be technologically challenged at times.)
