I Have SO MUCH To Tell You

First: HAPPY NEW YEAR. I haven’t posted since December but now I’m back and MUCH HAS CHANGED, as you’ve probably noticed. This post is going to be general update about what’s been going on — and LOTS OF COOL STUFF has been going on, my friend!! Let’s get right into it.

So, as you’ve probably noticed: MY BLOG LOOKS DIFFERENT. That’s because I moved to WordPress!! AHHHH WHAT IS GOING ON. I decided to move for a few reasons:

  1. Better analytics and stats HEYO
  2. I had a domain name and host sitting here collecting dust
  3. #SmartFinancialDecision
  4. I wanted to have a self-hosted blog 
  5. So that I can sleep at night and stuff
  6. IT’S SHINIER LOL

But here is the downside: IF YOU WERE FOLLOWING MY BLOG VIA GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT, MY POSTS WILL NO LONGER SHOW UP IN YOUR FEED. However! If you follow me via email, my posts will go directly to your inbox! If you’re not following via email, WHO ARE YOU. (Just kidding. You can subscribe here!!) This was obviously a big decision for me to pull the trigger on…but I’m so happy I did.

Moving to WordPress has given me lots of new ideas for future content and I’M SO EXCITED TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS. EEEP. Also some of y’all were sending me messages and saying that you were having trouble commenting because you’re a WP user… I hope those problems are all cleared up now! WordPress has the easiest commenting system, in my humble opinion. No messy sign-ins required! I’m also super happy to announce that my new domain name is abbiee.com!! MUCH BETTER. (Although abbieemusicblog.com will still work, so worry not!)

 

BUT ANYWAY ENOUGH TECHNICAL STUFF.

 

I have another exciting announcement. If you’re one of the OG Abbiee people then you might recall that abbiee.com was my music website. AND YOU’RE RIGHT. But here’s the cool part: I HAVE A NEW MUSIC WEBSITE. <<< go go go check it out! I REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. It’s a Squarespace website so I was able to fully customize it and really make it exactly what I wanted.* AND I’M SUPER PUMPED WITH HOW IT CAME OUT.

As for this blog, I’m going to resume my usual posting schedule of every Saturday!! YOU GUYS MEAN SO MUCH TO ME and lately I’ve been thinking about that a lot. Out of all the people I know and talk to YOU GUYS ARE MY FAVORITE. If you’re reading this blog post right now, asdfghjklasldljs— I HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART FOR YOU. And therefore I will continue to bring you fresh content every week!! I’m SO EXCITED about what the future holds for this blog. 2018 is going to be good year, friend. We’re going to learn, grow, inspire, and create. We’re going to take a journey together. AND I CAN’T WAIT.

*NOT A PLUG FOR SQUARESPACE but hey it’s a really cool website builder if that’s something you’re into

 

OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULD PROBABLY KNOW:

 

  • My YouTube channel is going to start up again in February! I haven’t been posting on there because a) I was on hiatus and b) I’m working on a super time-consuming project with my dad this month so EVERYTHING IS ON THE BACK BURNER AT THE MOMENT.
  • But I have lots of fun content planned!!!! VIDEOS AND THINGS. And I also got a ring light for Christmas so *screams into pillow* YOU CAN JUST IMAGINE HOW EXCITED I AM TO USE IT.
  • I’m ridiculously zealous when it comes to New Year’s Goals™. Yes, I am that obnoxious person who is like “BRO I’M GONNA CONQUER THE WORLD THIS YEAR” which means I have LOTS OF CRAZY PLANS
  • Like editing 3 novels
  • And writing 4 more novels
  • And releasing my first EP album
  • And looking into self-publishing my first book? (ahhhhh!!)
  • And recording more ukulele covers 
  • And CONQUERING THE WORLD MUAHAHAHAHAAAA

 

WELL I THINK THAT’S ALL FOR NOW. This was just a quick update post to get us all on the same page and let you know that I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth! Indeed, THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. I’m super pumped for 2018. It’s gonna be good.

 

TALK, BRO

What do you think of the new design??? Have you subscribed via email yet? (Make sure you do so that you don’t miss any posts!) WHAT ARE YOUR EXCITING PLANS FOR 2018?? Let’s talk about it in the comments! 

 

rock on,

abbiee

    YAY! I CAN FINALLY COMMENT ON YOUR AWESOME POSTS! LOVING YOUR NEW DESIGN FOR YOUR BLOG. 😍
    If you need any self-publishing tips (it should be illegal of how confusing it is) you can ask me for help. I’ve got the basic ideas of it down*. 😉
    And what are you talking about, I’M taking over the world! 😂 But maybe we could co-rule or something.

    Hooray and welcome to WordPress! You’ve been sorely missed around the internet these last couple weeks. 😉

    (A little tip I learned a couple weeks ago: YOU CAN STILL GET NON-BLOGGER POSTS IN YOUR GFC READER!! Just paste in the link of the website into the Reading List and blogposts show up as normal. It’s LIFE SAVING)

    If you don’t mind me asking, what camera do you use for pictures? I’m asking around because I want to save up for a quality camera for my blog. I want to use my own pictures. 🙂

    Abbiee I love your new design! WELCOME TO WORDPRESS. I’ve gotta say, I was lowkey nervous that you up and left because I didn’t see your new post on Bloglovin. I’d recommend moving your followers on Bloglovin’ to your new URL. (I think there’s an easy way to do this, but I can’t remember the process.)

    So excited for this next step! (also your music website looks amazing)
