Within four months of launching this blog I made the move to WordPress and I thought that was a terrifying and monumental move – trust me, it was a super big deal at the time. That transition forced me to learn a whole new blogging platform while many of my bloggy friends were still not jumping ship from Blogger so it was a very daunting proposition. In addition, I feared losing followers, my feed, page rank, etc… However, the change was a successful one and the risk was certainly worth taking. And now? Everyone and their mom is on WordPress.
The next big change was when I launched TMC. That too was a bit frightening because I wasn’t quite sure how well it would be received. I have come to learn that if YOU support others in the blogosphere you will be supported right back. And today, we are 600+ members strong with new bloggers joining daily. I am still in awe of how awesome YOU make this space to be.
Now this new venture about to be launched is another somewhat scary proposition because it again involves change. But, I have never been more ready than right now to embrace this new addition. I have learned so much since I began this blog and for me, it’s the right time to finally turn my “big” vision into a reality. This project has been in the works for months and I have never been more excited about a launch before!
My new site will once again be designed by the brain child behind Restored 316 Designs who is one hell of a brilliant graphic designer. I honestly cannot say enough about Lauren and I can’t even imagine working with anyone but her. And did I mention she developed and designed her own app? Yes, she’s THAT amazing. You can purchase Cuptakes which features custom designed wallpaper for your iPhone, iPad or iPod! She also has a new business venture that she will be unveiling soon so stay tuned for that, too!
So the next time I post it will be on the new site which will go live sometime next week. There may be some down time during this transition. In the meantime, you know I’ll be on Twitter! Looking forward to seeing you on the other side and I would LOVE your support of this new addition to Theta Mom – one that I know ALL women and mothers will certainly be proud of!
And I’m going to leave you with some words inspired by Katy Perry’s Firework. This blog has been so much more than I could have ever imagined and with this new move, I am going to once again trust my instincts, follow my heart and let my light shine!!!
“You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow…
Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time you’ll know,
You just gotta ignite – the light
And let it shine…”
Thank you for always being there for me and supporting this Mission. I look forward to sharing and exploring this new site with YOU!
