Random Utterances and a Dazzling Button- All for You!



There were two major bloggy (what? It's a word...) items that I have wanted to accomplish (and did!) recently.

First of all, I changed my blog's address (you can now see that when you go to dinnerwithkir.blogspot.com you are automatically redirected to random-utterances.com). At risk of sounding a bit like Dora, I did it, I did it, I did it! Hooray! I then changed the name of my blog to go with my new, beautiful address. I decided to go with “Random Utterances” since my posts no longer focus on meal plans and recipes, rather they take a more introspected look at the nonsensical lunacy that goes on in my brain. As I did this (and only cried twice), I felt like a computer programmer, with all the crazy lingo and acronyms that I was trying to decipher. But it's done now, and as long as I don't touch anything...

The second thing that I did was to make a button (over there ~>) for my site with its code underneath, so it is free for the taking!
BWS tips button

All I can say is thank goodness for sites such as bloggingwithsuccess.net, musingsofahousewife.com, and any others that defined what a “C NAME” was for me, because I have truly never been so baffled as I have been for the last couple of days.

So, don't make all this work for naught; notice my new address- tell everyone you know how amazing it is! Grab my button to put on your blog, or print it out and tape it to your forehead (please don't forget to send pictures of that last one)!

Drop me a line and tell me about your adventures creating new bloggy (see?) items.

  1. How come you yell at me when I tell you that you're being nonsensical?

  2. It's only okay if it's a self-deprecative statement. Just tell me I'm pretty and our marriage will work out great.

  4. Good for you! I remember when I got rid of the blogspot it felt so... real, somehow. Like hey, look! I bought this address so now I'm not fooling around with this blogging thing!

    And that button is adorable! :)

  7. Hi Kristen,

    Thanks for mentioning the tutorial/video you found on my team site, BloggingWithSuccess.net --- wonder how I knew about this mention [not a link-back since you did not include the url to a specific post, link-back is just another 'bloggy' word]?
    Well your button code says alt="BWS tips button" and I have a google alert for that term. It tells me who has installed my tips button. BUT, now I don't see my button, just the tag in YOUR button code.. lol

    So to tell if Eva or others grab your button, change the widget to show your own unique id!!!!

    I do like your button, very colorful.
