The First Part Worked!

Hopefully most of you are seeing this post on the new site. There’s still a few things to iron out-including all those pictures I told you about, but overall things seem to be shaping up. The test for today will be to see if the email actually goes out. Keeping my fingers crossed that it does or that if it doesn’t you still manage to find me.

Thank you for being there for me during this move!

    I didn’t find the blog yesterday and my busy day didn’t allow time to search for it. It was right there in my inbox today. Lucky me!

    After I tried about everything I knew, I called Ed Ammons and he sent me a link. Thanks Ed. Now I can see the comments. Your opening statement and everything and I really like what I see. I got to re-do my name and email in the boxes underneath.

    I got to go to the store and get more supplies, so I can make Chili. Hope Chitter and Chatter had a housefull last
    night. …Ken

    I love the new look! I didn’t get an email yesterday or today either but I always got to before I open my email anyway. I just talked to Ken Roper and got him back on the site too, I hope. I’m waiting for him comment to see if it worked.
    I liked the preview feature for comments on the old format. I don’t see it here yet. Is that a possibility in the future?

    Hey Tipper,
    I love the new change….however, being an old person, I am not real fond of changes…but in this instance I think it will be easier for us to access all the Appalachian Bling Pig News, recipes, crafts and music as well as all the comments of our heritage…Good Luck with this new adventure….PS…I am froze to death…hope I don’t catch that neumony flue virus going around…took the shot. Never totally works though, does it? lol

    I do get your blog through my email but it did not come through yesterday or today. Then I typed in the name and I got a page 404 but I scrolled down and clicked on the link follow me which brought me to your blog. I tried to leave a comment yesterday but don’t think it went through. I will try again but I don’t know what to put in for website so I may just have to send this to your email. Site looks good.

    Haven’t received the e-mail yet, usually have it by now because your an hour ahead of us, but got the Pig in my tool bar menu, so not an issue. Trying it thru Mozilla and it works now instead of chrome, weird.

    I had to find you, no email. I don’t care at all that I had to take an extra step to see your smiling face! Love the new format 🙂 Looking forward to this new adventure in the blogasphere.

    Good morning, Tipper! I added your “new” address (which looked exactly like your “old” address to me, but what do I know?) to my Feedly list, and the link brought me right here this morning. Huzzah!
