    I am so glad that you got the nomination and shortlisted. Great job. I noticed that you’ve changed the blog quite a bit. I’ve been so behind in reader lately.

    I did vote for you already.

    What a great group to be nominated with (and in). Congratulations and best of luck!

    Congrats – also on moving your blog. What are the pros of being self-hosted? Do you need to know a lot of programming and such? Anyway, your blog looks wonderful, and I have changed your address in my blogroll.
    Excellent new look!

      You don’t need to know a ton of programming to self-host Louise, but it does help. There’s some work with uploading files to a server and stuff like that which can be a little complicated, but not terrible. If you’re going to self-host, do your research ahead of time and figure out what you’ll need to do and change before you start though. I didn’t quite do enough planning and parts of the process were a mess!

    Congrats, Kim, that’s fantastic! And well deserved!

  • Kim September 8, 2009, 3:08 pm

    Thank you so much everyone! It’s really exciting to be on the list; I can’t wait to get the little badge thing so I can post it 🙂

  • Rebecca Reid September 8, 2009, 7:50 pm

    yeay! How fun! I’m so excited to see all the special posts next week — I’m really looking forward to that.
