The Book Smugglers: A Change is Gonna Come…

On January 7th we celebrate our first blog-o-versary and we decided it was time to shake things up a little bit. So that you don’t freak out when you come around then and notice that all the green is gone, we thought we should give you the heads up.

So what is going to happen?

Firstly, we decided to leave Blogger behind and migrate to WordPress, a platform that everyone and their dogs hail as the better one. AND we have bought a fancy new domain! Thus, our blog address will change. The new one will be:

Secondly, since we were moving anyway, we decided to get a new look. Ever since we started we wanted a cool header that spoke of Book Smuggling. Our complete lack of design skills prevented us from doing so till now, when we just about had enough of being lazy on our asses and…hired someone to that for us! And since we were changing the header, we decided to change everything else as well. Hence , on Jan 7th we will have a sparkling new look! We really hope you’ll like it. (If you don’t please don’t tell us? We are already bipolar as it is. And for those of you that are deeply attached to the greenery around here as Ana is we are, no need to cry and hail How Green was my Blog. The blog will remain green…ish. Sort of. Maybe. Ok. It’s blue. But what is blue? Nothing more than green less yellow right?)

What else is going to change?

Nothing! Content continues the same: reviews, interviews, commentary, popgeekery. The usual Book Smuggler stuff.

The only thing you need to do is to come around and join the party! And if you have us in your blogroll, it is just a matter of updating the link. Simple as that! (We will have an auto-forwarding service in place too, so you actually don’t have to do anything. If you have us in your feedreader, we’ll change the source address so you won’t have to lift a finger!)

For now, keep on enjoying Smugglivus! Later today we will post our pictures with our Smugglivus Poles.

Hugs and Kisses,
Ana and Thea, your friendly neighbourhood Book Smugglers

    So late to the game, but I bet yall will love WordPress. The back-end, har, controls are great. Much better than blogger. Although you two have done wonderful things with Blogger too.

    Good luck! Can’t wait to see it. 🙂
