And We Are LIVE on WordPress!

Yes, I know this is not nearly as exciting for you as it is for me.  But this is my blog, so you have to suffer through my verbal happy dance to get to the goodies like recipes, contests and delightful photos.

Happy Dance, Happy Dance, Happy Dance!

Playing in the snow

A couple of small favours to ask of you my kind and generous readers:

  1. If you have a second, please leave a quick comment on the blog, facebook or twitter! I’m doing a little test of Livefyre to manage comments and see if social comments will filter through so we can have a single stream conversation on each post…. (though after turning it on our backlog of 1962 comments are missing so we’ll just see).
  2. If you see something that doesn’t work – please let me know.

Some interesting stats and figures: (okay, interesting to me!)

We’ve successfully moved 1538 Posts, 1962 Comments and countless photos!  Seriously, I’m not counting them!  That’s why I host them on Flickr so I don’t have to wrangle them individually when we move.

unsweetened.ca has been live for 2355 days,that’s 6.5 years! , which doesn’t count the 2.5 years I was running it as Letters From Lex)

We had some great help from as we moved, and there will be more tweaks and enhancements coming to take advantage of WordPress.

Back to the Happy Dance! Happy Dance! Happy Dance!

      @kristahouse Thanks Krista, luckily the export/import functions did most of the heavy lifting!

      @EdenSpodek Thanks Eden!  I’m pretty delighted.  Thoughts on the big photos in the background?

        @AlexaClark I like the background photos. They suit your tagline well.

          Thanks Eden, I appreciate you noticing the tagline consistancy too ;->.
          Using the image as a background was initially a mistake, and I wasn’t sure if it was just my emotional connection to the photos or if it actually works. A lot of the photos are from Spain and I really liked the colours, mix of people, food, wine, animals and travel.

      @carolmichele I think that’s one of my goals – to make people hungry.  Glad to hear it’s working.
