You may or may not be surprised at arriving here. If you’ve read my blog for any length of time you know that, contrary to my nature in real life, in blog land I’m the Queen of Change. Headers, templates, fonts, it makes little difference; there’s often a change when you land on Dolce Bellezza.
But, this time it’s a big one. This time I’ve pointed my custom domain to WordPress instead of Blogger. Why? Because Blogger is, in my opinion, singularly unhelpful in giving customer support. I have been trying to renew my domain since August 3, and I’ve been circling through forums and pages for weeks. I’ll spare you the full story, but suffice it to say I got no where.
I did, however, receive a plethora of anonymous comments because when you turn off word verification every robot in the world finds your site to spam.
Anyway here I am, with a beautiful header of a street in Italy, and if you look closely you’ll see the word “libreria” in the bottom right. What better shop to have in a book blogger’s header than a bookstore? My husband said to please not leave “the laying down woman” off, and so I have added her circle to give us something familiar.
I’m comfortable with this. I hope it doesn’t jar you too much, and I hope to write endlessly fascinating posts soon. But for now, I’m just glad to have a new blog home. I hope you like it, too.
