I’ve been thinking about moving my blog for some time. Back when I originally started my blog I had no clue what to use for a URL…hence cdnrunnergal. I felt like I outgrew that url and that it was time to bring the blog full circle with runnerleana…. I contemplated a switch to wordpress as well but ultimately I like the slick new blogger templates and interfaces.
With the new home I’ve made a few changes. I’ve added in some handy dandy buttons on the side of the blog. You can subscribe to my RSS feed or you can easily follow me on twitter. I’ve also added in a button so you can follow me on Pinterest which is where I store a bevy of fitness and recipe related inspiration. If you are interested in Pinterest but aren’t on it let me know and I’ll send you an invite to sign up. I’ve also got a few buttons underneath the header picture to link you to my race reports, product reviews and the wedding blog. I’ll be trying to update some of the info on those pages in the next little bit. Also, at the end of each post you have the option to share that post by mail, Facebook, G+ or twitter if you are at all inclined.
Finally the biggest change is that I’ve decided to try using Disqus for commenting. I really wanted a comment system that made it easy for me to reply to you. Often people will leave comments on really old posts. This way (particularly if you decide to subscribe to follow up comments or replies) I can easily respond to you and you get a notification that I responded to you. You can choose to comment as a guest, to sign up for a Disqus account or you can sign in with Facebook, twitter, or a google or yahoo id. I’m hoping it will make it a lot easier for everyone to comment. If you have any feedback on the new commenting system (good, bad or ugly) please don’t hesitate to shoot me an e-mail at runnerleana at gmail dot com.
