Free for All


Well my time on So you think you’re Crafty is over. I came in third and I’m cool with that. It was a blast coming up with something new that fit into the theme each week. I’m really glad I entered the competition. I’m going to eventually do a round up post of all of the things I created for the competition. Thank you to everyone who voted!

Here are the fab features from last week:

This is the cutest homemade Wonder Woman costume. And the other pictures for this little girl are hilariously cute!


This side table is the perfect blue/turquoise and I love the stencil.

The Biggest Typo I’ve Ever Made

 

First of all, in case you didn’t know, I am somewhat of a grammar nerd. Not anything to out of the ordinary but I try my best to write my best and I am that person that notices when other people mess up. Sorry!

 

So here is my HUGE mess up. When I created this blog, I made the biggest typo of my life. In my blog name URL! And it’s been that way for 2 years.

 

It read www.youngancrafty.blogspot.com

Young an Crafty? Doesn’t make much sense. I totally missed the D on and. Who does that!? I think I was just so excited about starting a blog that I hit submit before I changed my mind. And yes, it has bugged me for 2 years.

 

All of these folks were switching to .com’s and Word Press. Well, I didn’t want to go to Word Press. I like Blogger and I have never had a problem with it. So my messed up blog name URL stayed because I thought the only way you could be a .com was through Word Press.

 

Until today! I read this great tutorial over at Somewhat Simple that said you don’t have to switch. That’s right, I’m still on blogger but I am now an official .com. And this time, I got it right! I am now www.youngandcrafty.com. It seems so much more official now.

 

What I did was buy my domain name through godaddy.com. After fumbling around and trying to figure this mess out while making a mess, I finally just called support at Godaddy and they directed me HERE. All you do is type in your domain (www.youngandcrafty.com). Then go to blogger, settings, advanced settings and type in your domain again. BAM, you are set up.

 

Now I just need to do something about my email address. It’s still youngancrafty@gmail.com. I bought email capabilities through Godaddy.com so I might be switching over. We will see how much of a headache that is…

 

So my words of advice if you want to create a blog is… Check your spelling in your title! And then recheck it again :)

 

And maybe a third time wouldn’t hurt either. 

 

Just speaking from experience.
