Presenting The New, Improved, Basically Almost Exactly The Same Bad Mother!

June 18, 2009

*tap tap tap*

Is this thing on?

Can you hear me?

(Wow, it feels like I am standing in my underwear onstage, peering into the darkness beyond the lights. Which, yes, is weird. And more or less awkward, although not entirely unpleasant, you know, in the abstract.)

(Wherever you are out there? I am imagining you in your underwear.)

Okay, look, so I know that this isn’t really all that big a deal, in the bigger scheme. I mean, this blog mostly looks the same, sounds the same, acts the same. It is, basically, the exact same blog that it was yesterday. But! I gave it vitamins and scrubbed all of its underparts (well, this lady did, but still. I asked her to) and gave it, like, its very own i.d. and now it could totally go into a bar and buy a drink and flirt with the bartender. Look! It has tabs! An About page! Which are basically like perfume and jewelry for a blog. This blog is now all grown up and come-hither!

So, you like?

(Oh! Oh! I also have a Feedburner link, right up there on the left sidebar! I HAVE BIG GIRL PANTIES NOW!)

Right, so. Where was I?

Oh yeah. You like?

    Congrats on the new digs. Looking forward to hanging out in your new place.

    Major Bedhead June 18, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    Very nice! Congrats on taking the plunge. I’m glad you kept your header – I love that shot.

    Hollie June 18, 2009 at 11:16 pm

    Looking good Catherine, who did you go with for hosting?

    Susan Getgood June 18, 2009 at 11:16 pm

    Congrats. Looks great!

    That lady does good work, doesn’t she :-)

    Heidi June 18, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    Huzah! You have big girl panties now!! I love it and congrats on the new site.

    Loukia June 18, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    Yay, you! :)

    Crystal D June 18, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    Fancy shmancy!! i like.

    Natasha June 18, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    Yes, much better. Blog domains that don’t match the blog name? EEEEK. This is awesome. I always forgot the proper domain and would automatically type herbadmother.com and it wouldn’t work. This is great. And tabs are essential. Happy for you.

    Mrs. Wilson June 18, 2009 at 11:41 pm

    LOVE the new site. Yay for being a grown up! I just read your last 10 or so entries … a big AMEN from over here.

    Della June 18, 2009 at 11:51 pm

    Ooh la la! I had some troubles with the feed on the blogspot one so now I don’t have to remember to type in your blogspot address, I can add you to my feed reader!!! (Not that I would forget to drop by anyway :P )

    Also, you totally got that (expedia) “dot cooommmmmmmm” song stuck in my head with your tweet announcing it.

    Lub yoo.

    Backpacking Dad June 18, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    I think you forgot the “I Heart Backpacking Dad” tab.

    Apart from that slight, I give this site five out of five thumbs up.

    Kim June 19, 2009 at 6:20 am

    Congrats on your new site addy! So much easier to remember. :)

    Kelly June 19, 2009 at 8:52 am

    I really like the new and improved comments, actually. Much better than Blogger.

    sam {temptingmama} June 19, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    I couldn’t have done it better myself.

    And that’s why she’s my busniess partner ;)

    Looks awesome C. I really like it.

    mrschattypants June 19, 2009 at 3:31 pm

    Love your new space. Looks great!

    jen June 19, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    I’m in my pyjamas actually. It’s too cold here just to be in my underwear. The site looks good.

    Amanda June 19, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    Jyes. Congratulations on your panties.

    flutter June 19, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Redneck Mommy June 19, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    It’s about damn time chicklet.

    I was wondering if you were ever gonna grow up.

    Wink.

    aqua June 19, 2009 at 10:29 pm

    New site looks great!

    Sam June 20, 2009 at 2:32 am

    The tabs are doing wonky things when you hover over them. I checked in IE and Firefox. Yes, I’m always bitchy like that. Sorry!

    Marinka June 20, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Yes, I like. I hope, however, that you’re not going to do one of those “spot the 10 differences between my old site and this one” because then I’ll have to cop to being senile.

    Look at me using “cop” and slang and all. I’m bad. or Phat.

    Sugar Jones June 20, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Love it!! I love the green… so happy! Maybe it’s supposed to elicit some other feeling… or no feeling at all… but it’s making ME happy, so that’s all I care about.

    Fabulous, dahling!

    Amber June 20, 2009 at 6:34 pm

    It looks fantastic.

    I need to get someone to do that for me. I have no idea how to get Facebook and Twitter links..or basically any other kinds of links on my blog. I am HTML stupid.

    Looks like a fun place for a Dumb Mom like me to hang out. I have nothing to compare to (since I think this is my first time here; I think)m but clean underpants are always good, right? I mean what if you get in a car accident…

    gil June 21, 2009 at 3:07 pm

    Great new looks!
    *BUT* for some reason my work place blocks this new address. “Mature contents” is the reason, if you wonder.
    What a shame.

    Good luck

    Ben O'Brien June 22, 2009 at 7:03 am

    Great looking site! I’m Subscribing now!
