Some people are so creative…

WordPress Code Cloud by Jackie Ann Patterson

Lately, I’ve been having problems of the creative kind. It could be stress. It could be burn out. It could be homeschooling.

It could be all of the above.

Whenever I find myself in this situation, I surf the internet for inspiration. Contrary to what you may be thinking, I don’t always look at other websites. Inspiration can come from so many places. Here are a few of my favorites, in no particular order:

  1. Mila’s Daydreams – you have to stop reading this right now and go to this woman’s blog. Oh my word – the cuteness. It’s positively indescribable.
  2. Shop 24 – full of some of the cutest stuff to fill your home with – I love the homey goodness and earth tones.
  3. How About Orange – Jessica is a talented graphic and textile designer who is always finding the coolest stuff on the internet. One guess what her favorite color is. 🙂
  4. – Holly’s blog is a fab place to go for inspiration – lots of curated content to choose from.
  5. – Not my favorite name, but some uber-talent in this pool. Love looking through some of the art they have created.

Hoping I get my creative spark back soon. I have more than one client that will be really happy.

What do you do when you’ve hit a wall?

What You Should Know About Moving from Blogger to WordPress

I’ve touted WordPress for the last two years to my clients. Yet my own personal blog remains on Blogger.

Hypocrisy? Not really. It’s more like the lady that was married to the plumber…her home’s plumbing was always messed up because her husband was always fixing everyone else’s and neglected hers! I’m the plumber’s wife. Or the plumber, some might say. But without the crack, okay?

So this is a note to let you know I’ve FINALLY moved my blog to WordPress. I’ve imported all 880 posts and 5432 comments and haven’t designed one whit of anything for it. I’ll be changing the theme and design around as I have time and will be adding some additional fun things for anyone who decides to stop by.

If you’re subscribed via google reader or mail, nothing should really change. I’ve moved the feed to the new blog and should you click over, you should see the new blog.

So what is it you should know about moving from Blogger to WordPress?

  1. You need a domain name
  2. You need a host to host the free WordPress platform
  3. You need to talk to us about moving you!

So there ya have it. Welcome to the new digs. Pardon me for showing up in my underwear.
