… Hello everyone …
When I started ABCD Design nearly two years ago, I had no idea what html was or techrorati or what any of this “blogging stuff” was about. I taught myself how to do everything regarding posting on the blog, subscritions, etc. Well, it turns out that I still have A LOT to learn! Please read this message, as it pertains to all of you who help to make ABCD Design a fun place for me post my daily sketches and inspiration.
I have recently set up a re-direct from my blogspot address. For the longest time blogspot would not let me re-direct to www.abcddesign.com. For the last few weeks, I managed to set up a re-direct set up but I am afraid I have lost the people who subscribed to abcddesign.blogspot.com! I have no idea if those readers can even get this message. Will you leave a comment if you are a subscriber to the old blogspot address?
If you’re reading in a reader and did not update your url subscription when I switched servers back in January – PLEASE, do it now! www.abcddesign.com.
If you subscribed via e-mail to my old blogspot address, please re-subscribe to www.ABCDDesign.com. There is a pretty little box in my sidebar where you can enter your address. I also will make an effort to figure out why the e-mail subscriptions take all the way until 9pm at night to end up in the mail boxes of my e-mail subscribers. I find it hard to believe that it is as simple as not being “high up” on the “google crawler” list.
Reading in a Reader?
To my embarrassment, I just learned that ABCD Design doesn’t look pretty when you view it in a reader. Since I do not view blogs that way and my web designer didn’t bring up the issue, I have been in the dark about my photos being cut off on the right hand side. BOO to that! Being a gal who insisted on BIG photos for the oohs and aaaah factor, this is incredibly upsetting to me.
Reading on the Web?
I also learned that ABCD Design appears differently on different screens. Not only to the fonts look different, but sometimes the design is all a mess! For instance, the word “subscribe” falls onto two different lines on certain screens. This is very concerning.
Please – had I known that these issues existed – I would have looked into it months ago when I switched from blogger to wordpress. Being a designer myself, I am very into the aesthetic appearance of this blog and I am completely beside myself. Had I known that different screens would produce such different looks, I would have made different choices. I PROMISE I will get all this ugly formatting fixed up ASAP!
Please remember!!! If you’re reading in a reader and did not update your url subscription when I switched servers back in January and would like to continue getting ABCD Design in your reader – please, do it now – www.abcddesign.com.
Thanks for your attention. Hang tight, and please stick with me. I will get to smoothing out this mess straight away.
