    A note to my followers

    And a request for your help I need to test my new site and whether you are finding it. I would be so sorry to lose you. So, could you please make a comment here if you can see it. My new link to my self-hosted WordPress site is https://bellesdays.com I would be so grateful if you could test this out for me. I have had some broken links and those horrible 404 messages. I know you all live busy lives and please only do this if you have time. This week has sure been a steep learning curve. Self-hosting is a whole new ball game. But I am excited…
