Look How Fancy We Are!

As you can see if you're reading this on our blog, we've been redesigned!


We're so pleased with the new blog design, created by Xpresso Design—who rocks a lot. She's easy to work with, reasonably priced, and talented. The avatars of me and Kenya that are incorporated into the design were created by Laetitia Bachellez.

It's going to take us a little while to reformat some of our old posts to match the new blog design. This isn't Xpresso's fault; it's a result of the fact that some of our posts don't use the default text formatting. Until we get everything reformatted, please forgive that some of old posts have oddly colored text.

In other news, we're moving! Since we have this fancy new blog, I couldn't resist moving us to a new domain. The move will happen in about a week, and then you can find us at (The link's no good at the time of this posting.)

Assuming you want to keep in touch, we want to make that as easy as possible for you. So here's what you need to know:

  • If you're a Google follower: You don't have to do anything. Our Google followers will be retained.
  • If you follow by email: I think you don't have to do anything. I wasn't able to confirm this, but I don't see why Blogger wouldn't continue sending those emails.
  • If you follow by occasionally visiting our web address: You don't have to do anything differently. Our current web address will redirect to the new one.
  • If you follow our RSS feed: I believe you'll stop getting our new posts. To fix this, just stop by here a week from today, and subscribe to the new feed. In the comments, Giselle says you guys are good too.

So what do you think of the new design?


  1. Yay so happy you love it! I think it's fabulous, but I may be biased ;)

    Also when you move to a new domain, you won't be losing any email or RSS followers.

    Your old domain will still work (, it will just forward people to, so your RSS readers won't be affected. Those who signed up before the change will still get them because the old domain will still exist and pull your feed from it. If ever you decide to move to Wordpress though then it's possible you'd lose those who subscribed before the change. :)
