Big Changes Ahead

by Meghann on September 7, 2010

Attention! Attention! Attention!

graduatemeghann.com will be going through a complete, head to toe make over tonight. I’ve been assured it should be a seamless process and google readers should not be affected, but I wanted to give a quick heads up before the change took place just in case it isn’t as seamless as predicted

Basically if the google readers are affected and you don’t hear from me for a couple of days, I promise that I’m still here – you’ll just need to enter a new address in to your feed.

Get it. Got it. Good.

I’m really excited about the new site and name! I hope you guys likes it! πŸ™‚

This evening I headed to a much needed session of Hot Yoga. I somehow when two weeks without practicing and my body was craving it all weekend. Tonight’s class was a little different due to a new instructor, but was still much needed and deserved after a weekend on my feet. πŸ™‚

Before class I taste tested the new Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabar.

Not as great as the Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar, but still a damn good bar. I’m a big fan of the whole chocolate chips in all of the new Larabars – the chips really make a difference. πŸ™‚

A HOT yoga class called for a COLD salad for dinner this evening.

Dessert was a small ice cream cone with one scoop of vanilla and one scoop of coffee chocolate fudge.

I have a few butterflies for all of the changes happening this evening. Please cross your fingers that everything goes smoothly!

I want to give a big shout out to my host, Eleven2, for making this transition as smooth as possible. In full disclosure Eleven2 will be hosting my site free in exchange for a few links and the promise that I honestly review and critique their service along the way.

So far, so good. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful partnership. πŸ™‚

Now, let’s hope they’ll be able to handle the switch tonight.

*fingers crossed*

I’m with you on the Larabar. The cookie dough is good, but not as good as the peanut butter choc chip! Excited for your blog changes!

Good luck! I’m eager to see the changes… If everything goes smoothly, I hope you have time to check out my Bondi Band giveaway tomorrow!

25 Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] September 8, 2010 at 5:17 am

The blog looks awesome. I really like how both yours and Tina’s photos ‘appear’ on your blogs. Do you know why/how that is!?

26 Ryan @ReviveMyBlog September 8, 2010 at 6:01 am

Hi Hillary,

I’ll answer since I’m still awake πŸ™‚

I designed the site for Meghann and the fade in photos are so that people don’t have to download all the photos on the page right off the bat which helps with page loading times.

I think there is a plugin that does it called lazy loader, but if you just do a google search for “lazy loader javascript” it should point you in the right direction to install it on your site.

I love, love, love it!!! Maddie at the top is perfect. I really like how the pictures the right of your blog name changes. I also love the fading in of the pictures. The fonts are amazing. Good choice. Excellent job. I have to go play around on your site and see all the changes.

I love it! The name is fantastic. I was really confused at first though, I thought “meals and miles? what site is that?” when I was opening up blogs this morning. I think the title and tagline suit you and your blog very well – great job!

Love, love, love the new site! Great name choice, the layout is nice and clean and i LOVE the header =)

Larabars are all the crazy and I’m so jealous b/c my nut allergies prevent me from ever being able to try them!

59 Biz September 8, 2010 at 1:10 pm

Love it Meghann! It’s funny, just the other day I was typing in google, “graduate meghann” and was thinking, I think she’s getting a bit older to still have that as her blog name!

Love how clean it looks too!

68 Paige September 8, 2010 at 1:33 pm

I really like your new header and design but at the risk of sounding negative, isn’t your new blog name a bit…reminiscent of the pre-existing blog Meals and Moves?

69 Sana September 8, 2010 at 4:00 pm

I adore your new layout! Thanks for being an awesome blogger!
