I don’t know if any of you noticed, but 320 Sycamore has a new blog address! It used to be www.granvillehouse.blogspot.com and now it’s 320sycamoreblog.com Wahoo!
You will still see the blog the same way, nothing will change for subscribers, blogger is still my host, but my blog address was the most confusing thing about my blog.
When I began (3 years ago!) I thought just my family would read my blog and they all know what the Granville House is (from It’s a Wonderful Life), so it made perfect sense to call it that since 320sycamore wasn’t available. It just got confusing though when I would say my blog was 320 sycamore, but the address is granvillehouse blah blah blah….
Anyway, it should be a good thing. I wish I could have gotten just 320sycamore.com but 320sycamoreblog.com was the next best thing.
Advice to anyone starting a blog! Before you announce it, tell your BFF about it, launch it, ANYTHING, go buy the .com for the name of your blog. (you can look at places like godaddy.com) Because if you are the least bit successful, the value of your blog domain name will go up a lot and you will be kicking yourself that you didn’t buy it back then for $20.
I worked with the wonderful Emily @ Designer Blogs to make the switch and tweak a few things (like my navigation bar!) We’re working on getting the search button over there on the sidebar back up to speed, and I’m trying to make some more improvements, but it’s a good start. It’s my blog’s birthday in October and I want to talk more about my blogging journey, and hopefully a few things I’ve learned along the way (is there anything specifically you would want to know about this?), we’ve got an entryway and kitchen to finish up, and we’ll talk paper like I promised.
it is time for our annual Under $10 Under 1 Hour Project Party!
Put it on your calendar….it’s always a good time.
