For what it's worth, I find WordPress very easy to use. I have created two sites with WP (one personal, one for my alumni association), and both were pretty seamless. You might still have the option of purchasing your domain name, if someone else hasn't already done so. Not the .typepad.com part, but perhaps straight-up www.portabellopixie.com could be your new home. In that sense, we followers will have to reset our bookmarks and RSS subscriptions.

Best of luck! I do love seeing your creative process behind the fabric prints.

Sandi Henderson

Thanks Marliese,

I do own the www.portabellopixie.com domain, I at least though ahead that much. :)

You'll love WP! I was the one (applesonastick) on instrgram regaling you with how I get almost no spam on WP. I have a fun printable valentine post I could share...if it works for you.

best of luck with the transfer :)


Changing blog hosts could be exciting! I mean that in a good way, lol. New year, new focus, new inspiration!

The Redhead Riter

I made the switch. It took me a year to really decide, but I AM SO HAPPY THAT I FINALLY CHANGED! I have designed and coded several blogs besides my own. I love WordPress. It gives me so many options that are invaluable. Here's my landing page (http://www.theredheadriter.com)

I have a "blogging tips" section on my blog that is filled with info and tutorials for blogging. (http://www.theredheadriter.com/category/blog-tips/wordpress/)

I would be happy to help you with any questions you have about the switch. Jot me a line and I will send you my phone number if that would make it easier. (http://www.theredheadriter.com/contact/)

It is a lot of work making the switch, but I PROMISE you won't ever regret it. I am so happy with my blog and all the freedom I have to make it unique.


Yay!! I have WP and so does Will. He hosts quite a few WP blogs. No spam! Love it! It catches it all.

From my understanding, you are 30% there by owning the domain name :) WP is a great program for creating your blog posts and blog, but not my first choice for hosting. I highly recommend Blue Host. Typepad will let you set up a redirect so you should be fine. Call me if it gets all crazy and confusing :)

Sandi Henderson

Well that is perfect as bluehost is what I set up. Hooray. I spent the better part of yesterday navigating transfers and codes and that sort of stuff. I will call you!

Good decision to go with WordPress. Here's a great resource you might want to check out: http://tentblogger.com/launch-wordpress-blog/. This guide by John Saddington was what I used to set up my WP blog. It is so helpful!


You are always welcome to use any tutorials of mine that you'd like..


Or do you mean a new unpublished one? Like as a guest blogger or something? I'd be glad to help you with whatever. Just let me know. Good luck setting up the new blog!


Hello all, here every person is sharing such experience, therefore it's pleasant to read this web site, and I used to pay a quick visit this blog daily.

My wife at http://icingonthecakeblog.com told me to get in touch with you. We do a lot of working with WordPress and I am sure we could work something out as she loves your work. Shoot me an e-mail andrew{at}psdesignsnola.com

Can't wait to hear from you.

sandi, so glad you are here (literally) after last year. and that your book is done!!! been waiting for that. thanks, also, for sharing you struggles. lots of hugs to you. and thanks for your lovely fabrics. i just started a new quilt over the weekend with a mix of your older stuff (still some of my all-time favorites). i got tons of compliments on the great fabrics i was working with during class. always do with your designs. you're my favorite! don't think it's even a question anymore. =)
