So this is the first post over here in my new space. Squeee!

Welcome to MIN-Make It Nifty

I did bring over all my old blog posts with me, but this is still a special moment.

I’ve been working away in the background and have learnt a lot about WordPress.org and self hosted websites. I’m still slowly working some things out, so it’s not perfect, but it’s a pretty good start. There are a few things that I still need to do like update the RSS feeds, social media account details and redirecting from my old blog; but for the most part I’m up and running on the blog front.

So let me give you a quick tour. At the moment this blog layout is fairly similar to my previous blog, but there is one main subtle change.

In the menu at the top of the page I’ve moved the Stash and Wishlist pages to under the About page.

This blog is definitely a work in progress and I’m working on adding some features for easier navigation. As a start a put a lot of time into changing up my categories.

Categories-Make It Nifty

I’m not completely confident about how I’ve used categories and tags here, but if you have any tips please let me know 🙂

I’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging, commenting and making front because I’ve been working away at this new website. Now I can dive into my sewing 🙂

Please don’t forget to change over your RSS feed to this blog. Just in case my attempt at switching over goes wacky!

How do you categorise/label/tag your blog posts? Do you have any tips for a new WordPress blogger?

{UPDATE 22Jan2015: Ooops! As is the way when doing something new. I forgot to allow comments on this post when I first published it. But it’s all fixed now. Thanks to Carolyn and Béa for letting me know.}

Until next time,

  1. Congrats on the blog move! I do categorise my blog posts, but I only because I hope that it will make it easier for readers to find what they are looking for if they want to find a certain type of post.

    While my blog is WordPress I have to admit to cheating a bit. The company I host with (The Blogpress) help out a lot if I have any problems with my blog, so I wish you luck figuring it all out by yourself you brave blogger you!

    • Thanks for the Congrats Jo!
      Hmmm, categorising is going to a be a continuing work in progress I guess.
      That’s not cheating Jo. That’s awesome!
      Thanks for the luck. I’m going to need it 🙂
