Hey everyone! Well I did it! I am finally jumping on the WordPress bandwagon. I originally wanted to begin my blog here, but there was someone else with the same name and I was truly disappointed. Someone else had actually claimed Sunshine and Elephants one month before I decided to post. Two years ago, I was like…”What? How can there possibly be someone out there with the same blog name as mine? This just can’t be true!” I was so taken aback by this that I chose not to create my blog here. It had taken me forever to decide on a name and this other person had it. So off to Blogger I went.
Fast forward one year, I contacted the person claiming Sunshine and Elephants as her own because she never started blogging! All she had created was a short About Me bio…one paragraph in length. How could she possible not create something to represent Sunshine and Elephants? I just found this appalling. I messaged her and asked if she would be so kind to close her account and explained how I actually wanted to use the name and blah blah blah…all the things I mentioned above. I checked back periodically, but no changes were made. Sunshine and Elephants on WordPress was still up and running without any blog post. I was insulted to say the least.
Now, I know many of you are probably thinking I’m being childish about this and maybe I was. But guess what? It worked! I checked last week and saw that Sunshine and Elephants was officially available! Only thing since the name was once used, I had to have a slightly different title. I had to add blog as a subtitle to my name. No problem. I am now the proud owner of SunshineandElephantsBlog.wordpress.com! *Happy Me!*
So now, I have to figure out do I just abandon Blogger all together because that’s where I birthed my baby and I can’t see myself just leaving it out there. I have to figure out how to get my content from there to here and I know some people I may ask, but it will definitely take some time. I am back at work full-time and my job takes up much of my time. So expect to see some changes over this year. Changes in format. Changes in style. Changes until I can figure out exactly how I need to have my baby displayed. You guys have been there with me through my first two years so I know you will continue to stand by me as I make new changes and adjustments to get Sunshine and Elephants just where I need her to be.
