**’Post’ on Sundays is a weekly/biweekly post here at Forever 17 Books where I can share with you all the goodies I have received, bought or borrowed. This post was inspired by In My Mailbox by The Story Siren.**

I have decided to start linking up with Tynga’s Reviews and the Stacking the Shelves meme!

Guys, I did it! I made the switch on Friday and I’m excited to see all the great things I can do over here. I mentioned it before but it’s worth saying again, it is going to take me some time to get adjusted so please be patient with the site as I learn the ins and outs. So far it’s been… a little rough, I can’t even lie. I knew it would be though. Admittedly there were some tears. I mean, a year and a half of doing things one way and now all of a sudden getting something shiny and new with all sorts of gadgets and gizmos, it’s scary!

Thank goodness for Ashley @ Nose Graze who not only created the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin and Tweak Me theme, but was also available to answer a few questions I had. The biggest help ever was Nereyda. I’m not sure what I would have done without her. She helped with a lot of little details and provided me with a few screencaps to help me out. First she send me Isaiah this week and then she helps me with this! I owe her, big time!

I realize my older posts are all wonky. I’m guessing I’ll need to go through and fix them. I probably won’t bother with the memes, but the reviews must be fixed. THAT will take me forever.

I had originally planned on bringing GFC over to WordPress but that has been taken off the table for me. I hope you guys will find an alternative way to follow! Check the sidebar for a whole list of other options. I personally love Feedly but Bloglovin seems to be the popular choice lately.

I’m very excited what this switch can mean for my little blog! I hope you’ll continue to stick around!

    I used to be on wordpress but we switched to Blogger when we changed our blog name awhile back. Both have their advantages and disadvantages but good luck! I’ve actually thought of going back but I’m okay with staying where I am (for now).

    Also, Crash Into You…I’m so jealous. I love Katie McGarry. She is brilliant and I am dying for this book. So excited to hear it’s amazing, too!

    Enjoy your books & your new home (it looks good). Here’s my haul

    Oohhh all books I’m dying to read! The Sound, Breaking Point, and Crash Into You!!!!!!!!! Enjoy! And congrats on wordpress! I’ve thought about changing forever since I like the commenting so much better lol but also because blogger never bolds anything and I always have issues getting pictures and text to go where it is supposed to. But I’m horrible at learning anything new so it will take awhile before I feel up to such a big change.

    Oh my goodness, Crash Into You! This past week, I’ve been like this insane stalker on Twitter. I think I saw like one of your tweets about it, and then I went and read ALL of them. (I’m not weird, I swear) haha!

    And then yay for WordPress!! The UBB is the best, and I get what you’re saying about the formatting of posts. I still haven’t finished updating mine – it gets exhausting after a while, and I didn’t even bother with the memes.

    Oh. I’m also really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Article 5. I read it earlier this week, and it wasn’t anything like I’d expected it to be.

    Congrats on being on WordPress.

    Happy reading to you – I am so jealous because you got PTL #3!

    I still have to read PTL#2.

    So glad you were able to get Crash into You! Can’t wait to see how you like it 🙂 And I know how scary WordPress is. I had to use it for my work, and I was freaking out too. It’s definitely better than blogger as far as Plugins go, but it can be a little finicky at first. Hopefully you’ll get used to it. Krista and I keep debating on switching, but I think we’re going to stay with Blogger for now because we don’t want that added stress of having to update everything, even if it will definitely pay off in the long-run 😀

    Welcome and congrats!! Pretty scary AND awesome, isn’t it?! I’m happy I switched, but it still is a bit scary at times. The blog looks great!! 🙂

    Enjoy your new books!! I’m totally jealous, especially of Crash into You. 😛 Have a great weekend!

    First of all, congratz to the WP move. I just moved last week too and I can definitely relate with all the wonky posts. I spent two sleepless nights fixing them. I also have Ashley’s UBB and Tweak Me Theme. And yeah, Ashley’s customer support is more than excellent. *fistbump*

    Back to your STS, I haven’t heard about any of these books except for Katie McGarry’s. But I do hope that you enjoy them!
