I am still working on a few issues having to do with bringing Friends and Followers over from the Blogger blog (this one). For one thing, I won't be able to carry over the "Google Friend Connect" feature. Google no longer offers this tool for non-Blogger blogs.
So if you are one of the 13 lovely people who gets Piglet updates via GFC, I really hope and pray that you will find a new way to keep up with me! I am researching what these options might be, but the best way will probably be via the RSS Feed which is now tied to the new domain name.
Related: if you follow using RSS Feeds, you probably know that Google Reader is going away in July. I have just discovered what looks like a nice, simple alternative, called The Old Reader. I'm currently testing it out and will report back soon!
Well okay, I'm not MOVING as in, moving to a new house. But The Painted Piglet is moving to a new "house" on the internet! I spent literally my entire weekend on this project, and there is more work to be done, but I am very excited and the whole thing will "officially" take place soon, so stay tuned!
Meanwhile, you might remember that a couple of weeks ago I launched the Painted Piglet vintage store on Etsy. Well, on Friday I sold my first item: a lovely framed needlepoint picture. I was thrilled to have sold it... but even more thrilled when I realized it was going to Sharon at C'est Chouette Home. Seriously, have you SEEN the amazing pillows she creates from heirloom needlepoint? She confirmed for me that indeed, she plans to make a pillow out of the piece she bought from me - I can't wait to see it! By the way, I've also added a few of my Rose Chintz pieces to the Etsy store - so if you're in the market for this pattern I hope you'll take a look!
