New blog address! And what I’ll be doing tomorrow :)

Hi peeps! I’m writing to you all from a brand new blog/website, and I’m really hoping that all you subscribers are still getting notifications, as normal. Please, even if you don’t normally comment, I’d really appreciate a quick comment on this post to let me know you’ve got it okay.

What I’ve done is moved my blog over from a WordPress.com account to a self-hosted one, with the new site address of AnnaJoSews.com (way more catchy than AnnaJoSews.wordpress.com, don’t you reckon?!). All posts have transferred over, although I’m having a few issues with missing images in galleries. Luckily I’d only recently started using the gallery function, so in the next week or so I should have had a chance to go through all the affected posts and update the images. I also know some of the headings in posts look odd, so I’ll do my best to fix those too.

If you do have a moment to look around the new site and let me know what you think I’d really appreciate it. I will eventually have a pretty header which my sister is designing for me as she has mad graphics skillz which are sadly lacking in me. I’d particularly appreciate knowing if there are any problems with navigating the site, or anything that looks plain weird. Don’t be afraid to let me know–if I don’t know about it, I can’t fix it!

Anyway, that’s enough of all that boring techy stuff. Believe me, I’ve been up to my eyeballs in it for days now and I really need a break.

So, I have big plans for tomorrow. Mum has the kids, Andy is back at work (he’s a schoolteacher, poor love!), and I’m going to be indulging in the following:

Yep, that’s every single one of Craftsy’s classes with free access for one day only! I have so many sewing classes on my wishlist, and I’m going to be using this chance to check them all out, and I’ll probably have a peek at a few more while I’m at it. I’m particularly keen to find the best jeans and shirt sewing classes there, as they are two garments I want to tackle before the end of the year.

Anyone else a fan of Craftsy classes? I’ve learnt so much from them over the last few years, particularly when it comes to fitting, couture sewing techniques and sewing with knit fabrics. I can’t wait to continue my online education!

Right, I’ll be back on Tuesday with an update post on August’s sewing. Until then,  happy sewing!

PS, that’s an affiliate link in the Craftsy ad above, so if you purchase a class after following the link I will get a small commission, at no extra expense to you. Hope that’s all right–it’s the only way I can fund my sewing habit at the moment!

  1. The transfer looks like it’s gone well! Your post turned up in my wordpress reader and I’m pretty sure I subscribed to your blog just before you switched to self-hosted, so it looks like that’s working well. (This is the second time I’ve written out a comment, though – the first one just didn’t post but I have great hopes for this one.)

    Thanks for sharing the link to the Craftsy event, too – I’m so excited about that! I’ve bought a couple of Craftsy classes in the past but there are definitely a couple I’d like to test.

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Katie! I’m sorry WP ate your first comment. I’ll have a look and see if I can find a better comment plugin to use.

      I’ll be starting on my Craftsy binge in an hour or so once I’ve offloaded the kids. Can’t wait! Hope you enjoy watching 😀

  2. You’ve chosen a very good and sharp looking design. Since I started my blog about 3 years ago I’ve changed my header already three times and still haven’t the perfect one. Looking forward to your design.

    1. Oh yeah, headers and logos are so tricky, aren’t they? I have another website for my writing and I’ve been through so many headers there. At least changing it up gives the whole website a quick facelift 🙂

      And thanks for having a look at the site for me–I really appreciate it! x
