Brian - Mancat Monday

Well, we’ve managed to move our blog and if you’re reading this then you must have found us!  This isn’t the final look, but hey, we just moved, so we had to start somewhere.  As you can tell, one of the fun things about moving is there are usually boxes involved.  In this case,  I had a great big bite of the Blogger box.

So why did I move my blog?  Well, I’ve been wanting to for the longest time, but I just kept putting it off.  After the Blogger crash last week, the decision was a whole lot easier.  I kept thinking about Tess, remember her?  If the Blogger crash would have happened one day sooner she would not have been saved.  So, it was just time to make the move.

Let me know if you see anything wrong of if something doesn’t appear to work.  And above all, remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Affiliate Disclosure: Sometimes I use affiliate links. What does that mean? It means that if I’ve used a product and liked it, or it's a company I buy from and trust and they have affiliate programs, I sign up. Then, when I mention that product or company in one of my blog posts, I use my affiliate link. Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, I might get a little sumpin’ for my treat fund.

I think you’ll love WordPress – It’s great to have all the control under your own fingers! If you ever want any tips or tricks, please feel free to ask me anytime – I’ve been using wordpress for a few years now, and there are some great plugins available to do almost anything!

I like it! Blogger is still making me mad because my blog still has kinks. Good for you for moving over.

Have a terrific week!

Hi there Brian, we like the new blog. Everything looks great. Good for you to get all this done so quickly. So glad you moved and we are extra glad to hear that Tess was rescued at least temporarily. She is so cute. Hope you have a great week.

Welcome to your new digs, brian and sisters. It is frightening to think that if the blogger outage had happened a day earlier, Tess would not have been saved. I think you did the right thing. Where is your blog being hosted?

We seemed to find you automatically, without having to add a new subscription. LOL. That’s a good thing!

Good morning Brian! We were so happy to see that we did not lose you when you moved. Hope you have a great day and enjoy getting your new home all set up like you want it. You are looking mighty sweet among those boxes. Hugs and nose kisses

If you have too many boxes Brian we wouldn’t say no to an extra one or two – it is always fun to surprise your sisfur by jumping out of them and making them jump. We are pleased to hear moving your blog went well and we can still find you all.
Thank goodness Tess was saved – poor little mite having a broken femur and those cruel children – it makes you wonder what their parents behave like.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

hey, Hey. I found you. Yeah!!!!!!

We were out working in the yard all last week and we missed the big Blogger Meltdown – I hear it was terrible.

Hope you like your new home.

Yep… found you…. Great new blog, Brian. Very smart to move. It’s all looking good too. I scrolled way, way down and didn’t see any problems. I’ll poke around when I have some time later. For now, my evaluation is that it looks beautiful.

pawhugs, Max

Nice looking! I’ve really liked WordPress, especially since they’ve added a bunch of new stuff. I’ve been thinking about going to .org myself. Are you using a 3rd party provider for your server?

Your blog looks great Brian, good job! Our mommy works on WordPress too, although we don’t quite understand what WordPress is, do you? But, she’s finally working on a blog just for us! You’re inspiring her more and more.
Purrs to all of you,
Miss Bella and Sele

Love your new digs! You did a great job! I was working on a new site this weekend too. But, I didn’t quite finish yet. It is harder than I thought! I am still having some setup issues (like moving comments, etc.). Did you do this all yourself?

We got straight to your new page through Google Reader, but we think we got forwarded. So we subscribed new and deleted the old entry. Works great.

I was thinking the same thing about Tess, Brian! I am glad you moved!

Looks good!

Are you hosting your blog at your own domain now? Is it hard? Mom’s been thinking of doing that with ours.

Looks good so far, Brian! I wish you all the best in switching. What did you switch to, exactly?

I like the larger, more open appearance of this template. I think your pictures will even be bigger now, too. And that’s very important, especially with another new sister around to blog about!

Looks great!! Ok I am assuming I am ok? I have you on my blogroll and it came up just like the old one used to. I don’t have to do anything else to stay with you, right?

Hi, Brian, trying for the third time. Glad we found you. My blog here was changed so I had to repair it.
Brian, you look busy there helping Dad move.

You transitioned just fine in out reader! Looking good!

It looks nice, although your header looks a little stretched to us. We likes all the pretty hearts on it. And we loves the color. (Sigh) Mommy hates WordPress, but even she thought about switching when blogger crashed. Then she went to post on Daddy’s blog and remembered why she doesn’t like WordPress, so I guesses we will stick with Blogger for now, unless they mess up again.

We are so happy Tess was saved.

Moving is no fun. You just might want to gnaw on that box. But lookin’ good! Welcome to your new home.

Everything looks fine to us except your header, which seems a little squished (top to bottom, not side to side) We use Firefox, not IE.

Moving is always a lot of work but looks like you are all settled in. Moving the blog must have been lots of work. Do you know if many are doing the same? The mom is worried about the blog going MIA but hasn’t thought about moving yet. She know just enough to get herself in trouble so we will probably stay put.
Don’t you just love the boxes? They are the best!!

Gracie

Oh, forgot. Your header looks a little stretched out.
