The Nifty Nerd Turns 2: A Year in Review

 In General Geekiness

Another year has zipped by and I’m already celebrating the 2nd anniversary of The Nifty Nerd! Next week on the 4th officially marks 2 years. It’s been a great 12 months and I’m so thankful to all my loyal readers and fans. To honor all the creativity from the past year, let’s recap the top posts!

BUT, first! Be sure to stay tuned next week in particular…What’s a birthday celebration without presents?! To thank all of you, I’ll be running a blog-iversary giveaway. The first place prize is worth over $100. Prizes for runner ups will also be given away.

Also, to make The Nifty Nerd even better for you guys, I’m currently in the process of moving the site over to WordPress. It’s proving a more difficult process that I had hoped, but it’ll be worth it once it’s done! Keep an eye out within the next month for a new look and a better user experience. As always, feel free to contact me with any suggestions or ideas.

        Has it been a tough transfer? I’ve been considering it with Blogger, especially recently when my layout just gave out on me and I had to find a new one.

        A bit yes. Weebly doesn’t allow me access to any of the blog posts on my site, so I had get a special tool to transfer them to WordPress…not an issue. BUT none of the tools that transfer images seem to be working for me so I literally have to upload and readd photos to ALL of my posts. >.<
