Today I want to inform you all of some BIIIIIGGGGG changes I'm going to make to my blog.
I am going to change my url and blog name, because I have grown tired of "rexxxdidit".
I don't think any of you actually know where the name rexxx did it came from, right? So, here's how it happened: I chose that name on a total whim, because I like Tyranosaurus Rex's so I wanted to have "rex" in my name - and I didn't want to copy The Nailasaurus by picking something dinosaur-y. I first chose "rexxxdoesnails" but I saw that many people had a blog name along those lines, and I didn't want to seem like I was copying them either! So I opted for the quite cryptical "rexxx did it".
I don't like that name anymore :/ It's so unrelated to nails! I want a name where people will hear it and immediately know what my blog is about. So that's why I'm changing it. I am still going to remain on Blogspot, though.
Unfortunately, there is no way I can change my blog url without losing all my followers from Google Friend Connect :/ (unless I buy my own domain name but I don't want to do that). Instead of changing the url of my current blog and having all links to my old blog posts not work anymore, I am going to make a brand new blog and import all my old posts into it - I tested it and it worked! My old url will still exist so people can find me that way and all links to old posts will still work that way.
But, like I said: bye bye to my GFC friends :( I am going to lose each and everyone of you, which is the main reason for me to have put this off for so long, and to be still a bit wary about the entire idea. But then again: better change my blog name now instead of going two more years with a name I don't like! Initially, I was going to wait a few more weeks before making the change (which is why I've made a FB page and added some widgets and stuff to my "old" blog), but eventually I decided it's like a bandaid: you have to pull it off at once so it won't hurt as much! Don't know if that's a legitimate comparison but anyway :)
Luckily, my Bloglovin' friends should just move with my to my new internet home :) I've contacted Bloglovin' and they said they would move my followers when I was ready to switch blogs, so hopefully that will work out! If for any reason you notice you can't see my new blog in your Bloglovin' feed in a few days, please let me know :)
I hope you will all come and find me on my new blog!
Now follows a big reveal of the new name!
*drumroll and cheers from an exciting crowd*
That's right, from now on you can find my at http://roaringnails.blogspot.be!
What do you think of the name and tagline? I'm quite impressed by my own geniusness :D
I still have to adjust the site and personalize it - I'll be doing that in the coming weeks! But I already feel so much better with that name - it reflects my love for leopard print and it's perfectly clear what my blog is about!
I am going to try and change my name on all my social media - Tumblr, Pinterest and Facebook. I know it's not a problem on Tumblr, but I'm hoping it will work fine on Pinterest and Facebook too. (wish me luck!)
I want to thank you all for following me and supporting me through my blogging adventures, and I hope to see you all again on my other blog! :)
