Dear Readers – Exciting Announcement and Changes!

Dear, beloved and bewitched Readers!
During the next few days some exciting changes will happen here at the Bookworms!
We leave our home to move to a new and shiny home!
The Bookworms are moving from Blogger to WordPress!
And….
We are super excited about this!
I (Danny) have been thinking about this since almost a year,
thinking about advantages and disadvantages.
But mostly I was scared.
Scared about even asking my Bookworm girls what they might think about this…
( I know how my girls dislike changes *giggles*) 
But, finally 3 month ago we all talked about this and
we all agreed to this big step!
Why?
Don’t get us wrong, we loved Blogger and still do – but
we want the Bookworms to grow and we want more possibilities.
WordPress with all the plugins is just something blogger cannot compete with.
So, what does that means for you??
Well, NOTHING in the first place!
All our Readers should get redirected since the
url and the feed-burner address stays the same.
BUT;
Google just announced to discontinue GoogleFriendConnect
for Non-Blogger Blogs.
Meaning us… soon.
So our dear and beloved Readers,
if you follow us via GFC then we would
absolutely LOVE you for subscribing through one of the following
sources.
All of them will keep you updated!
The easiest way is subscribe to our Feed
with your favorite Reader, (GoogleReader, MyYahoo, Netvibes, and much more)
Click on the Heart to subscribe! 
Another Option is to get the updates directly via Email!
Click the image to get directly to the Email Subscription for the Bookworms.
Then of course you can also get Updates via Facebook from
both our Facebook Page and via NetworkBlogs:
You can also add us via BlogLoving:
So you see, there are a lot of Options to still get updates!!
But for now, let’s keep our fingers crossed that the
transfer works smoothly and that no post or comments get lost!!!
See you soon… on WordPress!!!
The following two tabs change content below.

I'm already an email subscriber so the changeover won't bother me at all. I'm very happy for you. I just don't understand why Blogger is doing this and more importantly, when they'll take it away from Blogger. We all count on the GFC. We have giveaways to celebrate our numbers. I really think it's unfair.

But, I can't wait to see what new things you have in store for your blog and what it will look like! Have fun moving!!

I moved from blogger to WordPress several months ago. At first I was scared but it's been well worth the craziness of moving. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Holidays!

I've been thinking about moving for awhile too – I still don't know if I want to switch, I'm so scared of losing things and what not, ha.

WordPress is awesome (and way better than Blogger). Once you've moved there you'll wish you'd been there all along!

Thanks you! It's going on right now and I'm still kinda scared!

WordPress is truly awesome!! I have another site hosted on wordpress and I simply love the possibilities.
I have someone who is transfering us – which is good since I don't have to worry THAT much!!
Thanks for stepping by Sarah!

That's good!!

Oh hon, don't worry about the GFC thingy, it will still be on blogger. Blogger Blogs are not affected, they just take it away from non-blogger blogs, which still sucks bug time!!!

Thanks Sweetie!! It will take some times until we have a pretty new layout, but it will be worth the wait!

I know! I was too, which is why I hired someone to do this for us. I was so scared I wouldn't have been able to do it, but like this I feel much more comfortable by letting someone else do the switch for us. Someone who actually have an idea about what they are doing!

Ohh, that's so exciting! I absolutely love WP and the move was one of the best things I ever did with my blog. I hope you'll feel the same! Hope the move goes well! But if someone like me manages, I'm sure you'll succeed! Especially if you've hired someone. :) I'm already subscribed to you as well, so I'm prepared;) Lol! Good luck!

Seriously the more I hear how happy everyone seems to be with their own moving story, the happier it makes me and the more excited I am :-))
Thanks for subscribing – I really am a bit sad about the GFC.. But we will all get through this!! Woot!

Good luck with the move! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that WordPress is nice to you guys and lets you transfer all your content over with no hiccups!

Smiles!

I'm sad for you about the GFC thing because you worked so hard to get that number of followers and now it will be gone. But now I'm thinking, maybe that number isn't so important. It's the blog that counts. And you always have a great blog. A number is just a number and I'm not sure who it matters to — I just know that I'll still keep reading your blog because I need to know what my Bewitched Bookworms are up to! Onward and upward as my mom would say! (I'm at her house now and it's very hard to use her dinosaur computer. No Wi-Fi!)

Happy Holidays my Friends!!

Thank you so much for your words hon.
Truth is, we are also slightly sad that we will loose the Followers. We will do some nice events in the beginning of the year to show that we are worth the subscription – again!

But in the end you are right! Numbers is not what counts, it's the people that come here no matter what and participate in the blog by leaving a comment or two :-)) And I hope that all the lurkers that maybe just read our posts in the Reader maybe also decide to sign up again!

Big Hugs and Kisses!

I am extremely impressed with your writing abilities
as well as with the format to your weblog. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it your self?
Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to peer a nice
blog like this one nowadays..

You could certainly see your skills within the
article you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you
who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. All the time go after your heart.
