Taking a New Turn!

Hi there blog friends!
Hope you are looking forward to a nice weekend.
Stopping in for a little update and share some info.
 
 I finally got the Dot Com placed on my blog address
and so happy about it.
 
Thanks to Linda from Life and Linda
and Sheila's post from Note Song
Visit them both, you will so enjoy your time at their beautiful blogs.
 
Having had my own domain for many years
but not really using it to the fullest.
Linda helped me through GoDaddy.com to get this done and
applied to my blog without losing
a single post, followers and format.
Something I was worried about and having trouble going forward with.
My old blog address was set to my original blog title
which changed many moons ago
so this was really in need for change.
 
A big thank you goes out to Linda for all her help and knowledge.
 
If you have thought about owning your own blog name
for very little money, visit Linda's post and learn how
you too can join the dot com family.
Thanks to Sheila  for her post that sent me to Linda's information.
She is a sweetie!!


 
And in other news,
This blog is taking a new turn as you see in the header.
I am now
Southern DayDreams
from, CelestinaMarieDesign.com

 
This title has been in my day dreams for so long
but too slow in making the changes.
They say change is good
so I am pleased to finally make this happen.
 
Everything else is the same.
Just me designing, decorating, restyling, staging
and filling the shelves for my etsy shoppe.
 
Thank you for all your kind comments and visits.
You make blogging the fun it is.
Meeting so many new talents
is an inspiration.
Visiting many old friends is a blessing.
Welcome to my newest recent followers.
So glad you have chosen to stop by.

Thank you also for the sweet comments and emails
about my guestroom redo. You are all so kind!!
 
Wishing all a great weekend
Hugs,
Celestina Marie

I'm back...I went to the redo and so happy I did. That guess room should be in a magazine. Its that gorgeous! The bed is stunning and a goodwill find to boot...LOL...can't go wrong with that. I love the colors, beautifully done. AND it takes all the little things to set it all off. I'm proud you used the silk bag I sent you. Its a perfect setting for it.
Blessings Dearest,

Heaven's Walk said...

Congrats, Celeste! I am truly interested in learning more about purchasing my own domain for such a reasonable cost. I love to hear from you what exactly you had to do to switch, and if that low payment is set in stone...? I'm not THAT computer savvy, and would certainly need someone to hold my hand during any switch I may decide on! lol

Thanks, sweetie!

xoxo laurie

Hi Celeste.
That sounds very professional. Thank you for sharing this info with us and Linda's blog.

By the occasion. Each time I click on the link provided by you it redirects me to another page instead opening it in a new tab. Then I'm loosing your post.

If this is what you want then I'm not interrupting. If you think this will be an idea to keep your reader on your blog and open a link in another tab I offer my support.

Kisses
Jo
Selenarte

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Yes Jo, the link does take you directly to the blog links for both I share here. To get back to my post, simply just use the return arrow to the left and it will bring you back to my post. Hope this helps.
Thank you!!

Marcia said...

Congratulations, Celeste. As a business owner, it's good to secure that domain, and it makes the web address easier to remember too.
Was fun catching up today, and again, I love your new blog title.
