|EN: A little while ago, I received a message that there exists a trademark on my current blog name 'Red Sonja'. This means that the company which bought this trademark, has the only right to use this name. I wasn't aware of this at all! Long story short: the company who has this trademark e-mailed me about this and we agreed that I was going to change my blog name, as I'm not exactly looking for any legal problems ;-)|
At first, I was a little bummed about this, to say the least. My blog is my little baby and you've started to get to know me as 'Red Sonja'. However, I think I found the perfect new name for my blog! I think this name describes my blog and style perfectly and is also very recognizable.
|EN: The new name will be... *drumrolls please*... Retro Sonja!|
Next to this, I have been thinking about switching from Blogger to Wordpress for a long time. There are so much more possibilities with plugins and SEO. However, I never actually did it, because I heard so many stories about people losing their comments or followers. But, then I found Angelina! Right now, she's working on my WordPress layout and she will also help me with the big Blogger to WordPress switch! Together with changing my blog name, I was also going to have to buy a new domain. I figured it would be the perfect time to do all of this at once!
|EN: This means that there's also a new layout coming up! To be honest, I'm still very happy with my current layout. But now that someone is doing all of it for me, I really felt like I would be nuts if I would just let her copy my old layout. So, the new layout will be a 2.0 version of this one! Still very recognizable, but just a fresh new version of what you're used to!|
I already bought my new domain last night. Once the layout is finished, it will be installed on my new domain and we will copy the entire content of this blog the new one. If everything goes right, this will all be happening around the end of January or the beginning of February, but you will find out naturally!
I can't wait for all of this and I hope you're with me as well!
