Have you noticed a different layout on My Repurposed Life? I’ve made some changes…well, not me but Kim from Seven Thirty Three. They are simple changes, but I really like the new header layout. Here you see the way it looked before Kim helped me out. But wait—there’s more BIG news . . .
If you follow me on facebook, you already know that there’s a new place to find MRL:
See that purple arrow? I recently acquired MyRepurposedLife.com !! I have wanted it for a long time, but it was sitting idle. A nice lady had it, but hadn’t blogged since November 2009. One day I checked, and her page was gone. I did some research to find who owned the page. I contacted her, and she sold me the .com I was giddy. It took awhile for me to actually get the deal to go through. Then, I had to work with my domain host to get the .com to actually work. I tested it over several weeks, asking my friends on FB to also test it. I didn’t want to blog about it until I knew that you could actually go to the .com and see MRL. I was persistent and finally got it to work a couple of weeks ago.
Here’s how it works. YOU can still use MyRepurposedLife.net, because that’s where MRL will always be. When a visitor types in MyRepurposedLife.com, they are redirected to the .net site with “masking”. That means that even though the visitor is on .net – they will see .com in the address bar. Why did I do all of this? Because most people in general assume that any site is a .com So, if you are really excited about a post and tell a friend about it on MRL and you tell them MyRepurposedLife.net they won’t remember that when they get to their computer. Now when they type it in, and automatically type .com they will find me. I know, I know….it’s the little things that make me happy!
Another thing Kim helped with is my comment section. My comments are threaded now, which means that anyone can reply directly to another reader’s comment. I’m really happy about that. Many of you are no-reply comment bloggers, and I can’t email you when you ask a question.
Quick note-I’d like to remind you that I am an Amazon affiliate. If you regularly buy things online, I’d appreciate you clicking through from MRL. I get a few pennies each time an order is shipped. And, hey, IF you’re buying something anyway ??? 🙂
While I’m busy rambling, how about an update on the ole shoulder injury? I am still not doing any projects, but I’m sure you’ve already figured that out. On my last visit to the surgeon, he told me that he rarely has to do surgery on the type of injury that was revealed on my MRI. Over Thanksgiving, my back was hurting really bad, which is unusual since I’ve not been doing much lately in the way of projects. I decided to see a Chiropractor. That’s where I am right now. I’ve only been a few times, but I’m hopeful that it is going to help. I really miss working on projects. I can’t wait to get busy in the shop again.
thanks for always being there, my friends are the best!
