The Switcharoo


Well folks, we’ve finally made the switcharoo to WordPress. We decided sometime before The BlissDom Conference to try and make the switch from Blogger to WordPress.  And now here we are.

Why switch? 

Well there’s several reasons, some of them too techie for me to understand, much less communicate. But mostly because WordPress offers a better blogging platform for interaction and formatting. AND it should be easier for YOU to comment too!  Just enter your name and email address and you can comment with ease! And if you’d like to add a picture to go along with your comment, you can get one (it’s called a gravatar) to make it more personal. (Just click the link.)

I received a comment just this week asking why I don’t interact in the comment section more. I know. I know. I feel horrible about it.  However, Blogger made it tres difficile to reply back, and sometimes I’d rather respond privately through an email, but I’m not sure where to find you. Hopefully with WordPress you’ll see me interacting more and answering your questions in the comment section.  I’m already getting the hang of it!

So what do you need to do?

Nothing really.  You might need to excuse a few glitches here and there, but Lisa Boyd knows her stuff.  She makes a 600+ post move look like a cake walk.

If you are coming here via that’s a-okay – you will be automatically redirected to .

(If you have murraycrew in your favorites, or in your blogroll – thank you so much for that – you might go ahead and change it to If you are a subscriber, your subscription should transfer over with no action on your part.  If you don’t see any new posts in your feed reader over the next few days, you might try unsubscribing and resubscribing.


Thanks to Blogger for hosting nearly 4 years of my blogging!

There’s some BIG changes inside our home this week too! Remember the “mystery box”…well there’s MORE!

So tell me how you like the new digs, try out the new easier commenting and you can even take a stab at guessing our surprise!

    1) LOOKS GREAT!!!

    2) Lisa Boyd is six shades of awesome. Love her personally, proud of her “professionally”.

    3) I’ve lost hundreds of readers because of my lack of engagement :(. NOT because I don’t care or I’m not appreciative…but because it’s the only place I found to balance time. My family is more important than precious cyber friends….

    4) Gosh, your header is darlin’.

    Congratulations on all your newness!!!

    I’ve been considering the switch myself for the same reasons. Although I don’t have near the followers you do so it should be much easier to switch, I hope!

    Looks like it was a seamless transition. I wouldn’t have known the difference if you hadn’t told me. The only suggestion I have is if you could some how bold or brighten up the comments link. It kind of blended in down there at the bottom and I scrolled right past it.

    “Seamless” is right! I had no problems. I have been following for at least a year but have never been able to leave a note of thanks and encouragement to you…until now. May God continue to bless you, your family and your internet ministry.

    Congratulations on the new site – it looks great! I like being able to enter my name and email – I never liked commenting as “anonymous”, but I didn’t have a google/blogger id.

    I too have been wanting to switch, and have hit you up a couple times on twitter asking how it went! You have given me inspiration to begin researching!! Great job on the switch!

    I must be the odd duck. I like Blogger. I use WordPress for several other blogs I write for, but my personal blog is done on Blogger. WordPress and I don’t always see eye to eye. But if it works for you, then you go Mama!

    I totally agree that wordpress lets you reply better in comments! I had that very same issue with blogger.. but will admit I miss parts of blogger.. blogger to me was easier to customize its look, because im use to html and not css… but other than that I love my new wordpress blog 🙂
