Tonight a great meeting of the minds happened at the Mellow Mushroom just down the street. Me and my friend and tech guru Albert got together to discuss some changes that are in the works. I mentioned briefly at the end of Tuesday's post that there are going to be some changes to the blog soon. Albert has been hard at work designing a new logo for Vivid Creation Fibers and also working to mesh the blog and the store. Next Saturday we'll be moving everything to the www.vividcreationfibers.com site. What does this mean for you, the reader? Well, thankfully it seems that none of my old blog posts will go away. And I should be able to update from Blogger and export to the new website. The layout will be a little bit different but no drastic changes. The biggest thing is going to be making sure that the whole process goes smoothly and making sure that, if need be, we put up redirection links. Now it will be easier for people to get from the shop to the blog or vice versa. There will also be a link to my charity group on Ravlery. The hope is that everything will be more streamlined and cohesive.
To show my thanks for bearing with me through this whole process I'm going to offer a little giveaway. There will be 5 prizes up for grabs:
Contest rules will be explained on the day of the new blog/shop launch which is set to be May 1st. Until then keep checking back for updates!
Another thing we had contemplated with the change of the blog and the shop is that I might change my Twitter and Ravelry name. I thought it might be helpful to sort of tie everything together. What are your thoughts on this? Should I stay thekniftyknitter or should I change to reflect my upcoming re-branding?
