Retro Sonja is online! - Retro Sonja Blog
March 6, 2015

Hi loves!

Woohoo, I’m so excited! My first post on my new blog! There are some really big changes, but all in all I think it’s also still very recognizable as my blog! In this post, I’m going to tell you about the most important changes. First of all, there’s a translate button now! It’s on the right, just below my ‘Welcome!’ box. You can choose to read my blog either in Dutch or in English. It’s not an automatic translate tool, which means I will still personally be writing all the posts in both languages. Only, instead of the two language columns, you will now be able to set my entire blog to your preferred language!

Retro Sonja Fashion Blog is Online

Probably the most important change of all: my blog name has changed from ‘Red Sonja’ to ‘Retro Sonja’ and my domain changed from redsonjafashion.com to retrosonja.com! I explained the reason behind this in this post. I will also be changing all my social media names to @RetroSonja, for as far as they are available. For everyone who already follows me, nothing really changes, as all my social media accounts will redirect to this new URL. And if you accidentally type ‘redsonjafashion.com’, you will also be redirected to the new site!

Next big change; I switched to WordPress! So, from now on, you can comment on my blog posts by just filling in your name and email address (and site, if you have one!). And another lovely feature, you can check a box to receive an e-mail when I reply to your comment! Ever since I learned that WordPress has so many more advanced options and plugins, I really wanted to do this switch. But I was so afraid I would lose blog posts or comments or that something else would go wrong, that I never really gave it a shot. But then, Ellen introduced me to Angelina from Eunoia Studio. She made my new WordPress layout and did the big Blogger/WordPress switch for me! And I’m so happy that she did this for me! If you’re also looking for help to move from Blogger to WordPress or you want a new Blogger or WordPress layout, I definitely recommend her!

And last, but not least, the new layout! As I was already changing blog names and URLs (and I actually still liked my old layout), I decided to go for a new and improved version of the previous one. I think it turned out really well! It looks fresh and new, but also recognizabe, and that’s exactly what I wanted!

There’s only one thing that didn’t exactly turn out as planned; Bloglovin’ is experiencing some technical issues, so they can’t change my blog URL at the moment. But, I found a solution to that! I will still be posting all my posts on my previous blog as well, such that you can see my updates in your feed. But when you click on the posts in Bloglovin’, you will be redirected to my new home page and you would have to click on the post again to read it. This is a temporary solution, until the technical issues of Bloglovin’ have been solved! Sorry about that!

So, now I’m reeeaaally curious to find out what you think of my new blog! I really hope you like it as much as I do! And if you find anything that doesn’t work properly, please let me know!

Love,

Sonja

    Wat een prachtige lay-out is het geworden! En superhandig dat je gewoon een taal kunt aanvinken, heel professioneel zo! :)

    Leuk! Ziet er mooi uit en je eigen stijl is nog goed herkenbaar! En wordpress is echt superfijn! Ik ben ook een half jaar geleden van Blogger naar WordPress overgestapt en er ging een wereld voor me open haha.
