I LOVE IT! It looks fantastic here, and your banner is really appealing and inviting.

WOW. You have left me with a gaping mouth…this is fabulous. You did it, sister. You’re gettin’ your mojo back!

Rock on!

Thanks friend! I can’t believe I have to do this all over again with my foodie blog. Yikes!!!! :)


Melissa April 27, 2010 at 10:56 am

Gigi, You did it! Yay!

I noticed you have two “about” pages. You can fix this by going to “pages” on your dashboard and deleting one.

Glad the hard part is over!

Thank you! I think I was deleting it right as you were commenting….I did several imports from blogger to try and get all of my stuff here…still not sure it all came over. Thanks for still being my friend. :)

Your e-book on twitter is so SO great. Thank you.

I do have a question. I made a fan page for my blog, but it’s connected to a profile (that I made up so it would be separate from my personal page, which I *think* I’m not supposed to do).

But how do I get that fan page that’s specific to my blog to appear on tweetdeck and clicky? Also, which one – tweetdeck or clicky – is the one that’s going to link my posts to all my various applications? I’ve signed up for both

I have spent an extremely stressful month (since my new blog is self-hosted and I have limited internet skills) trying to put all the buttons in the right place to have people subscribe, get feeds, link to twitter and facebook … and the only success so far is to link to twitter – and that’s not even for a retweet!

Anyway, your tutorial was a huge help in understanding twitter basics and I ended up quitting hootsuite since you can’t link to a self-hosted wp blog.

Cheers. :-)

Hi Gigi, I follow you on all your sites, I’am new to the blogging world, liking it so far. Somethings are still confusing to me. I linked up on the blog frog. Still confused on what to do there, any advice. Love any tips!


Gigi Ross November 13, 2013 at 1:15 pm

BlogFrog is no more, so don’t waste your time :)


Joanne November 13, 2013 at 1:23 pm

ok thank you. Love for you to follow or any advice you can give me, would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Gigi,
I’ve been trying to add a Google+ Badge to my blog through a text widget and copy/paste the code I received from Google Developers. (I am signed in to my google plus account as well) Each time I continue to get code in place of the badge on my blog. Any ideas? Most Appreciated!!

Hi Gigi,
I really like the colors and tabs on your blog! I’ve been blogging at for a year. The blog is “Life and Culture w/ an Alabama Twist.”

Right now, I’ve got 3 tabs, but I want to expand it so that I have the freedom to target my topics better.

*Sigh…* There is just so much to learn and so little time. I’m also a wife and mom. I’ll definitely be back, and hope you will visit me, too.

Best regards,
