The Master Of My Domain

Thanks to a lot of encouragement from the ultra-fabulous The Wannabe WAHM, this weekend I pulled out my credit card and made a very exciting purchase: www.thanksmailcarrier.com.

Our bags are packed! We're ditching that old place and moving on to bigger and better things!

What does that mean for me? I get to be the proud owner of this tiny part of the internet, one more .com in a sea of zillions of them. I get to continue on this journey that I started, this thing that I figured might be fun if I could get a person or two to come by and read it... this place where I write and rewrite each word over and over in hopes that it's the right one, the one that will make you smile or even laugh or just think, hey, I know what she's talking about and I see why this product would be great in my life.

If I don't happen to accomplish any of those things, well, at least you have the chance to win something cool, right?

And what does my new domain name mean for you? So far it appears everything is transferring over very smoothly, so hopefully you won't have to do a thing except for update your bookmarks or, if you're one of the awesome people that has my cute button up, grab the new code for it. Other than that, just keep on coming by to visit. Whether you leave a comment as a giveaway entry or on a review or just to say hi, every single one gets noticed and appreciated around here.

This blog wouldn't be much without any readers, so whether you're here for the first time or an old pro, thank you. I wouldn't have considered this step if it weren't for how far this blog has come and the potential it has to go even further with you along for the ride. There's much more to come on Thanks, Mail Carrier, so thanks for helping make it all possible.

Now, back to more important things.

Has the mail come yet?

This last box that was delivered... I don't remember ordering these, but they sure are fun...

Congrats!
I just purchase mine through google for like $10 a year. What is it you are doing with your blog? I am up in July, and am going to have to make a name change and so forth, but want everything to be smooth for my readers and don't want to lose anyone. I'm always curious as to what others are doing. Thanks! :)

So when are you making this change? I have your cute button...do I need to refresh it now or wait until you make the change?

Look forward to seeing the new page!

Hugs!
