Firstly, if you’re subscribed to my updates and you are receiving this email in your inbox, this post is relevant to you, so PLEASE click through and participate in the poll at the bottom.
Secondly, In case you haven’t seen it yet, I settled (for now) on simply changing the color scheme of my blog rather than going through the mess of adopting a whole new theme. I’m pretty happy with it! The white really makes my pictures pop and I love deep red colors (though changing the ribbon at the top was basically impossible…but it’s fine). 😀
Getting right to it! I’m going to be shutting down Blog U. After running it almost all summer, I realize that I prefer just having a “blogging” section on Budget Girl. It gives me a nice little outlet when I’m tired of blogging about my normal stuff. It lets me take a step back and take a breather if I notice my content is becoming mediocre. This ensures that my content is actually worth your time. 😛
I’ve already moved the majority of Blog U’s posts to Budget Girl and archived them in a way that should make it easy for you to find old posts. You can access them by clicking “Blogging” at the top of this page.
I’ll leave Blog U up for a couple of months until I see the transition has also been made for its readers and then I’ll delete it (because I’m also deleting ChelseyHartman.net. Now that I only have Budget Girl and CWB–which is only updated occasionally, anyway–I see no need for it).
Blog U Subscribers Stuff
If you were receiving email notifications for Blog U and would like to continue receiving notifications ONLY when a post in “blogging” goes up, let me know and I’ll create a special mailing list.
Also, if you were subscribed to Blog U, I can not legally move you to Budget Girl’s mailing list. So you’ll have to subscribe yourself. You can do that here. You are also more than welcome to subscribe to all topics, of course. 🙂
Budget Girl Subscribers Stuff
At this moment, if you’re subscribed to Budget Girl, you’re receiving emails for everything that gets published here. If you’re subscribed to Budget Girl and you *only* want food and DIY posts, let me know and I’ll move you to a different mailing list, as well (or you can unsubscribe & resubscribe to change it yourself). MailChimp won’t let me link to the “update profile” page, sorry. 🙁 However, if you still have the confirmation email, it should contain a link to it (even easier).
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please leave them in the comments!
