Welcome to Bower Power 2.0…the new, shmancy, ABP blog that is definitely prettier with lots of quirky potential. I am so glad that you made it!!! Yay! This is a HUGE move for me…so slip on your hardhat, we are still under construction over here. This transition might be a little tricksy, my programming skills are definitely janky, and things might be more awkward than a homeschooler at a social event…but like all enhancements, these changes will hopefully spice things up!
So what changed?
Well, for one – I said goodbye to Blogger. It wasn’t bloggers fault for the breakup…I changed…not Blogger. Blogger was reliable, easy to get along with, and oh so fun at first. But the spark had left. The commitment had me feeling more choked than a ninja’s headlock. In the end, Blogger and I were meant to be friends. And the old posts will stay up on Blogger till the day I die…or until they force them down for violation of the good humor laws.
So I moved on to WordPress. And I lurve it. Mostly because I can put better info at your fingertips. Now you guys can find projects and crafts more easily with my new fun pages such as CRAFTS & PROJECTS (and there will be more improvements as I get a hang of this WP thing). Plus – now there is a little house tour page called OUR CRIB. And because many MANY of you have suggested that I roll out a source list for each and every little cheapo trinket in our house – I am currently working on taking better pics and creating a comprehensive list of each item that made it’s way into our suburbian (read: boring) life. But that info isn’t the only thing I want to include here at ABP2.0. Yes, I love home decor. If I were a tween, home decor would be named Zac Efron. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t love Hannah Montana, or the Jonas Brothers. Heck – let’s make room for the NKOTB too! Interpretation: I wanna increase the amount of info that I cover and the topics that I include. Basically, ABP needs to gain some weight. So look forward to reading more about home decor, clothing, crafts, dating your husband, photography, renovations, entertaining, shopping, and cooking. Note: At ABP 2.0 I retain the right to make cheesy jokes, un-pc remarks, celebrity jabs, and use potty humor whenever possible. That my friends is here to stay 🙂
But content isn’t the only thing that has jumped into the 21st century…even the look of the blog has changed. I know…some of you are very attached to the green & blue birds, clouds, and butterflies that made Bower Power home. It will be ok. You will have withdrawl symptoms at first. They will pass. Especially when you see that fine looking man in my new header. Yessiree, bob…that is my boyfriend, Jeremy. I decided that the other half of Bower Power should be front and center. Granted, he doesn’t write posts or take photos…but believe me, if he weren’t around, 99% of the material for this blog would be nonexistant. Smoochies Jer-Bear!
And to wrap up this new move, I have big news. No. I am not preggars. It is my blogiversary this week! In dog years, ABP would be seven. In human years, ABP is one…for you cat people. So this young puppy has many more miles in her 🙂 In honor of my first anniversary, I have a whole week of plans for the celebration. Sort of like a festivus for the rest of us! Stay tuned!
