    Hi you’re site looks super cute! Congrats on the move to WP. I was wondering why the price for WP is so much more than Blogger packages. In General I’ve noticed this with most designers. Is yours that way because you have someone else doing the design transfer and blog transfer for you? Just wondering as I contemplate my choices.

      Thanks Linda! Yes, prices are usually higher to design WP blogs due to the time it takes a designer. A designer usually spends twice the amount of time designing a WP blog versus a Blogger.com blog. WP is a little more technical and involved. A designer must be very comfortable with CSS, HTML, and sometimes a little bit of knowledge on PHP.

      If I was designing clients WP blogs, including installs, and transfers by myself the price would still be the same. I have someone doing the installs for me because I don’t have a lot of time on my hands and the install is what takes the most amount of time.

    I made the switch last week too for the same reason. I am still in learning mode, and playing with the layout and theme. I think your site looks great!

  3. Love it! It looks fantastic…hopefully I won’t have to move anytime soon, but when I do, I am glad to have you to take care of everything!

    That’s why I call Blogger BLOGGGGGGRRRRRR! They are SO frustrating! I haven’t been able to manage my account lists for months. I had my hubby back up my blog the other day so I won’t lose the past years of my posts. I opened a WordPress account a year ago and migrated up to that point, but haven’t touched it since. You are inspiriting me to finish the migration to stay ahead of disaster!

    I do love your new look. I need a makeover, as well. I really, really, really do…

    If you happen to figure out why your newsletter went out with your old posts on it, PLEASE let me know. For months now, if I don’t have a new post that day, old posts (like 10 of them) are emailed! It is so frustrating to me and I, for the life of me, cannot figure out how to fix it.

    Love the blog design and glad to see you moved to WordPress. The fact that Blogger (or Google) can just take away your blog is scary stuff, indeed.

    Yes, your blog looks great. So, soft and cute 🙂 That happened to me one weekend and I thought that I was going to lose my mind. I tried calling Google corporate, but they are not available on weekends … I went through every customer service and technical help area that I could find for them … my account was activated within an hour, but man was I stressed. I am glad your blog is back up. The same can happen with your WordPress, though in different ways … Make sure to have your security plugins straight.

    Hello! I had looked into this, however I was wondering how I could do so without losing the few followers that I have (I just started). Ideas?

    Do you use the .com or .org wordpress because my blog doesn’t look like it could ever be anything similar to this. I do the .com but I had tried the self hosted myself but I kind of crashed my site and had to go back.

    I would like to switch and am going to get Genesis…I have a wordpress site, but it is the wordpress.com. Soooo…not sure what to do…do I go to wordpress.org instead??

    Hi there, we connected over Twitter. Love your design on this site! I too made the switch from Blogger to WordPress for my personal blog: http://www.aplusme.wordpress.com
    Curious: Do you do the illustrations yourself (like the one of the woman at the top of your page?) If so, I’d LOVE to talk to you about doing some illustrations for my company Kalika Baby Inc. (www.kalikababy.com) for sellng BlowOut Blockers by MelzyLLC. Many Thanks! ~Jadine

    I read this article and I panic a little. I don’t want my whole site deleted. :/
    What if you buy the domain from them since theirs a option on settings to buy a domain or registered one you already might have bought. Can that still happen if I do that?

You’ve put in the work to make awesome content, now it’s time to dress up your site with a stunning design.
