The Hand-Written Life Becomes TheHWL on November 1st!


Don’t forget!  In just a few short weeks, The Hand-Written Life will go from being a WordPress-hosted blog, to a Self-Hosted website at!

That’s right – in case you missed last week’s announcement –  I am super excited (and a little sad!) to announce that October 31st will be The Hand-Written Life’s last day at this location.  Starting November 1st, all of my latest posts and musings will be featured on The ^new^ HWL.


What's New at The HWL


I’ll be doing one of these “reminder” posts every Friday for the rest of the month, to make sure that everyone gets notified of the switch – and has time to start following the new site so that you won’t miss a beat when one day we’re here…and the next day we’re gone!

Because unfortunately, won’t show up in your WordPress Readers like The Hand-Written Life does now.  The good news though, is that there are still three fantastic ways to stay up-to-date with all of the latest news.


How to Follow The ^new^ HWL:

1.  Use a Reader such as Bloglovin’ to make sure you never miss a post – Start following TheHWL today! (Don’t know what a Reader is, or why you should be using one?  Check out this great article.

2.  Follow The HWL via E-mail – Hop on over to, and enter your e-mail address where it says “Follow That Blog!” in the right-hand sidebar to sign up to receive notifications on all of the fun new content that goes up on the site – right in your Inbox.  Catching up with The HWL will be as easy as checking your e-mail!

3.  Keep up with me on Social Media – Click the icons below to stay updated on all of the latest blog posts on, plus get exclusive content just for fans!

Just so you know – I have updated all of my social media links (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc) with NEW URLS featuring TheHWL.  What does this mean for people who are already fans?  Absolutely nothing!  The change occurred all on my end – not on yours!


Unfortunately, this does mean that  the social media links above, and the ones featured on the side-bar to the right, are the only correct ones throughout the site. I will be doing my best to update the rest of the links throughout the rest of the blog posts and contact pages etc, but it will take me a little time – so please bear with me while I work the kinks out!

I repeat! – If you’re interested in following me on any of the various social media sites, be sure to click the ones in this post, or in the sidebar to your right!


Once again, I just want to extend my deepest gratitude to all of you who have supported me when I had no idea what I was doing.  Without your encouragement, I would never have the courage to try something even more challenging!  Now let’s make this last month here at the best yet!
