We were in a large pet store the other day because Bling needed a new dog bed. As much as she loves sleeping on our rug, sneaking onto our red couch, and even nestling on the wood flooring between our bed and trunk, as a rising corgi sensation she needs, no, requires a more substantial sleeping area. And her old dog bed is tattered and gross.
We sampled numerous shapes and sizes of dog beds, but could we honestly ever look Bling in the face again if we didn’t buy her this one?
This bed is obviously designed for corgis.
How could we live up to the ilovecorgis.com name if we bought a dog bed featuring some other kind of dog on its label? Were those newly ordered bumper stickers just a lie? Would Bling like this dog bed or would she always wonder if another corgi had slept there first? Should we leave the tag on the bed like we are required by law to do with pillows? Isn’t Bling, like most corgis, larger than 30 inches? Is it false advertising to use a corgi on the label of a dog bed too small for corgis? So many questions, so much confusion! Bling, we hope you like your new bed!
Oh the wonders of the internet. After a long process of debating a site transfer and a near flawless conversion that took place over the last 24 hours thanks to the gurus at WordPress, ilovecorgis.com is now no longer hosted by WordPress.com. Instead, I have chosen Bluehost to be the torch bearer for this corgi movement.
What does this mean for ilovecorgis.com? Good question. First, it means that for the avid non-wordpress reader there should be no more funky advertisements between posts. Advertisements may appear, but they will not be as intrusive.
Second, it means that the layout of the site will change a bit. It already has with a new footer area and fewer distractions along the right hand sidebar. I am up to experiment a little with how the site looks, and now I have more freedom to do that. Don’t worry, you won’t load the site one day and see a mirage of psychedelic rainbows or something. It won’t be that drastic. [Though if you were to load the site one day and nothing appear, you'll know it's just me messing up an already near-perfect site.]
Third, it means that I hope for the site to grow – in visitors, content and contributors. So stayed tuned.
What will not change is the amazing corgi content, pictures of Bling and other corgis, and a comprehensive review of all things corgi. Woof!
News Release: ilovecorgis.com’s bumper sticker, hot off the printing press, has arrived!
The bumper sticker is a rendition of the redesigned, trendier logo – which 9 out of 10 corgis polled prefer. 9 out of 10! The new logo is proudly displayed in the header of all ilovecorgis.com webpages. Can you spot the differences between the new and old (there are 2)?
I still haven’t determined the optimum position for the bumper sticker, and haven’t fully committed to it yet by taking the sticky backing off it, but options include the rear bumper versus the rear side window (as demonstrated here).
If you would like a bumper sticker, I will probably be sending off a second printing run in a few weeks so let me know. Corgi ears seen in the picture are not included.
