I’m writing a quick blog to ask for your patience and maybe a little bit of help:)  As of this far I have googled, you tubed, and blindlessly walked my way through creating this blog myself.  I am not 100% happy with the design or layout options, but I realized I cannot read html.  I am limited and I have a whole new appreciation for those computer geniuses:)  Also, I have a blog that I am already putting some time into and don’t want to invest a lot of money at the moment since I am not making any money:)  Or should I say Ryan doesn’t want to invest any money:) But I do understand!

So, the reason for this post is 2 fold.  First, I have had to put restrictions on my comments because I was getting so much spam, and inappropriate at that, that I DO NOT want shown on my site.  Therefore I have to approve the comments before they come.  Well, since I was gone for a bit I realize that I have 11,000 comments to go through, yikes!  I love getting comments and hearing your feedback and questions so I am going to start cleaning up these comments and going through them everyday and hopefully respond to yours and “approve” it so it gets posted.

My second reason is to see if anyone out there knows of a college student, wonderful person, fairly inexpensive that does do work for wordpress blogs.  I am actually looking to change my domain name and my blog over to a different site.  Pretty sure I can’t  do it on my own:)  I would love some new design, a signature, button…some sidebar stuff…does this make any sense to anyone else??  :) :)   If not that’s totally okay, just thought I would throw it out there:)

So, please be patient with me as I am trying to figure out these computer technicalities and try to better my site:)  I also want to say thank you to those of you who do leave comments and encouragements:)  It keeps me going!!

  1. Hi Allie,
    Just took a quick look at your beautiful new kitchen :-) So happy for you guys! My future sister-in-law is great with blogging and website stuff. Would you like her email? I can have her help you a bit, she loves to do that sort of stuff! She re-designs blogs and stuff all the time!

  2. I’ve never used WordPress. My experience with Blogger has been mostly good. I’ve never had a problem with spam comments! Blogger has a lot of options for making your blog look nice. Plus I like to make my page pretty–and I change it whenever I feel like it– with free blog backgrounds. There’s a few really good sites I would recommend and they explain how to do it. It’s really not hard! Again, my experience is only with Blogger. I really can’t say if WordPress would have the same options or be as easy to make uniquely yours. :) Hope you figure it out!

    1. Thanks Stephanie!
      When I was initially starting my blog I researched and a lot of people said wordpress was a great blogging site if you want to grow your blog and a lot of the blogs I follow have changed to wordpress, but I’m not exactly sure the benefits??:) I’m not sure about any of this but I might just have to bite the bullet and hire someone someday:)
