Update: New URL

HELLO guys!
Thanks for coming to visit my new website (NEW URL).

Changing your URL is actually much more work than I anticipated.
Sure it's just switching your URL.
But that means changing all your links.
And everything that's referring to your old URL.
And it's really hard to let people know about your new one.
And less pageviews.  

PROS:
Well, a better URL, I hope.
Also, a great time to change blog design. 
I think that's it. No one really changes their URL.

CONS:
Little to none pageviews (at first at least).
Having to change the links referring to old URL.
Changing some of the links are really hard.
Have to restart reputation-ISH.
No one can find me anymore.
Not that I have much in the first place.
Still not done remembering where to change the links.
Do not know how to change those links.


Does anyone want to offer advice? 
I'll be glad to accept them. :)

  1. I saw on Bloglovin's FAQ that there's a way to transfer your Bloglovin' followers to your new blog URL. I assume you haven't done that (since I clicked on a post on the old blog in Bloglovin' and found your new blog from there). Definitely check into that! I did follow your new blog via Bloglovin' though! :-)

  4. Things will get better! It would be hard after having so many page views, but it looks great!
