IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT—REALLY


Early next week, Monday (?)—I hope, I will be switching my current wordpress blog address to a private address: orples.net. I am hoping, with my son’s help, I will be able to transfer all of my blog contents without any problems. I am not sure how my existing links are going to be effected, and/or if I will be able to transfer them. Since I’ve purchased my new domain name, I’ve been looking into the necessary steps to try to maintain my established links, coming, and going. Please keep your fingers crossed that I don’t end up losing the relationships that I’ve built to date. Should that be the case, please try to re-link to me, as I will you.

The Orples and I are getting ready to make some changes. :)

The Orples and I are getting ready to make some changes. 🙂

Sadly, I’m not sure how any of this is going to work, so I am hoping you guys will bear with me while Olivia, Oscar, and I are in transition. ‘The ‘Orple Adventures‘, aka, ‘Visiting the Neighbors’, have blossomed into a fun way to communicate with my friends, here, on wordpress, and I think ‘our games’ will be the focus of this blog, from here(*), on out. I will leave my archive posts as is, although I may re-categorize the existing content to try to alleviate redundancy wherever possible. While some of my categories have little to do with orples for the most part, they really don’t interfere with the orples, and I think those posts add a little more variety for those visitors who might like to check out Maymont Park, or perhaps some of my other ‘earlier’ topics, posted before I finally found direction with this blog.

Please accept my apologies now for any unforeseen problems. You know what they say, “Expect the worse, and hope for the best.”—thus the reason I am making this announcement ahead of time—just in case. I treasure my followers and the relationships we’ve built up since I first began THIS blog. I hope you do, too, and will stick with me if we are temporarily parted.

(*) here, being once I have completed setting orples.net up and have it running. I will make an announcement once I’ve made the change. In the meantime, I should be making one post a day, so if you don’t continue to see posts after Monday, you’ll know why. Please type in my address if you cease to get my ‘post notifications’ and we can re-link if need be.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. 😉 The orples and I have are just beginning, so PLEASE STAY POSTED!

Hugs to all, Marcy, Olivia and Oscar

    • Thanks Marilyn. The reason I am waiting until Monday is because my oldest son can’t help me until then. My other ‘guru’ son, who has switched over a website before has instructions to call him tomorrow and discuss any experiences he made have had when he made his transition. I don’t have anything against WordPress, especially since they are free, except for the advertizing. I need to try to earn some money from my site MYSELF and maybe add a page to advertize toys, or something, until I can gain recognition on my books. I haven’t even begun a website to promote ‘Brides’ yet. My kids tell me I am making a mistake combining genres under the banner of one blog. Hell, I used to be a truss designer, what do I know about marketing? No matter, at some point, this transition needs to be made. I might as well bite the bullet now, and pray I land on both feet. Thanks for the admiration. If not for my kids, I wouldn’t be so ‘brave/stupid?’. LOL 😉 We’ll see how it goes. I’ll copy your link, and we may need to reconnect. I won’t know until AFTER the fact. 🙂
