Surprise!

March 4, 2008 @ 8:17 am | Filed under:

If you subscribe to this blog’s feed, you might want to click through today and take a look at my brand-spankin’-new website and blog design. This project has been in the works for a long time, and I’m very excited to unveil it today. Didn’t my designer, the lovely Emily Carlin of Swank Web Style, do a fabulous job?

I’m still working on sidebars and pages and things, but y’all are welcome to pull up a chair and visit a while while I finish unpacking. If you are a feed subscriber, you don’t have to change a thing—your feed has already been redirected to the new digs. (Which is how you found this post, of course!)

If you would like to update my link in your blogroll (for which: thank you very much), the new URL is: melissawiley.com/blog. Easy-peasy, right?

As for my Typepad site: it’s not going anywhere. We have a ton of family bloggity stuff over there, so that account is staying put. The original Bonny Glen blog will stay just as it is, archives, sidebars, and all. I’ll put a note over there to redirect folks to the new site, but you can still dig through those archives and leave comments and whatnot. But everything that is there is also now here. All the old posts (including the entire run of Lilting House) and comments are right here.

All new posts will appear here, not there.

So welcome, welcome, welcome! Make yourselves at home!

    Hi Melissa, nice new website.

    I found this on the vital records of Marblehead Massachusetts: Mary D Snow and William N. QUINER, married Aug 21, 1836. And then 2 lines above it: Marmaduke Snow and Annis WALLIS, married June 1, 1729. I’ve found a whole wad of QUINERs in and around Lynn and Marblehead Massachusetts, at least in the early censuses. Somethin to make you say hmmmm, I think?
