Welcome to the new AnnieBlogs!


“I might have been born just plain white trash, but Fancy was my name.”

[I feel like on a day when I launch a pretty new blog, I should start by quoting Reba. Can we all agree on that?]

So if you are a google reader kind of reader, pop over today and check out this beautiful new site.

I am BEYOND thrilled with it all, but be full of grace with it for a few days as you guys scamper throughout the pages and find things that need tweaking or fixing. Just tell me if you see something that needs a bit of repair work- there still might be a piece of painter’s tape left in the corner or a loose screw somewhere in this newly remodeled internet home.

. . . . .

Let me take you on a little tour.

At the top of every page, you’ll see a few linky-dinky-doos for you to check out-

About Annie – you know me, no bigs.

Annie Speaks – I do.

Annie’s Book – I have one. Fingers crossed, this will be plural someday soon.

Annie Writes – This is just in case some of you out there are looking for a freelance writer to do some biz with ya.

Contact Annie – The form on this page gets emailed straight to me. I love when you guys write.

If at any point, you just wanna come back to the blog itself, just click on Annie Blogs. Easy cheesy, huh?

On the right, you can see some fun buttons to take you to Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.

Then there is a beautiful salmon subscribe button if you are into that.

. . . . .

Within posts, you can now share using social media and YAY! your faces are no longer squished in the comment section! [I am personally glad for that because my squished face did absolutely nothing for my dating life.] Also, some things have shifted around and etc, but you’ll figure that out lickedy-split. I’m not worried about you getting lost.

The only other new thing is that we have some ad space on the right…. we’ll get that kicked up and going nutz after I get back from Scotland in August.

So fly on little birdies and check out the new place. I hope you totally love it.

[Thanks to Luke and Byron, my blog builders, for designing and building the most beautiful internet home I've ever had.]

. . . . .

Anything missing that you guys think we should add?

And this is just the FIRST big reveal of the week. You know, nothing says low stress like launching two websites the week you go out of the country for two weeks. I’m a lunatic [but I'm having a great time!].

    Oh my! I absolutely love this! I also adore the font in the comment box (I’m a font nerd!). And I am intrigued by the 2nd website! :)

      Mr. Darcy is his name and I can’t imagine an internet home without him. :)

      Thanks for your kind words. My designer and developer are amazing people.

    I kid you not, 30 minutes before reading this I was singing “Fancy, don’t let me down!” into my tube of toothpaste with all the twang I could muster! Small world.

    And the blog is lovely!

      Thanks, Megan! I’m much messier and more cluttery. Luckily, my designer isn’t. :)

    Annie, I adore your new space here. It’s light, airy, inviting, warm…so very YOU.

    And just when I think I couldn’t love you more, you go and quote Reba.

    Congrats, friend! xo

    Congrats on the new site. You know I can’t see how beautiful it is, but I’ll definitely navigate around when I have time and see how well I can do things with the new set up. Obviously I can still leave my wordy comments for you to read.

    Aww, I’m fairly new to your blog so the old design was ‘new’ to me, but I love this design even more! And just on a technical note (I test websites and apps on the ol’ jobberoo) it happens to load faster! which is always a plus. :) …p.s. Maybe we should get a tiny little 4thchair for Mr. Darcy? Or would it have to be a 5thchair then?? Anywho, it would be sahcute.

    It looks great, Annie!

    I’m still cracking up over what I took to be your nonchalant reveal a couple of weeks ago. I’m such a dork!
