Welcome to the new home of Clowie’s Corner

Thank you for coming to visit me, I’m glad you’ve found your way here.

I haven’t finished unpacking yet, but I hope you’ll be comfortable.

Have a look around and let me know what you think. Do you like my new theme?

For those of you who already follow me by email, I have transferred you to this site. You should have received an email recently that just needs confirmation that you would like to subscribe and receive notification when I make a post.

Unfortunately WordPress.com doesn’t allow me to transfer those of you who follow through them. If you would like to follow me by email, you will find a box just above the footer. There’s also one in the sidebar when you are viewing a post.

I am on Bloglovin’ and there’s also an RSS Feed that you can use.

I just couldn’t wait till Wednesday to tell you about my move!


  1. Congratulations on the new blog, Clowie. I’ll make the changes to my Bloglovin account right now to make sure that I don’t miss a post. Have a lovely weekend.

    • Thank you. I’ve hit a slight technical difficulty in adding this blog to my profile on Bloglovin’, I think it’s getting confused because the name is the same as the old blog – I’m going to have to contact support, but it should get added soon.
      Have a great weekend!

  2. Clowie, what a super new site! You’re brave to make the move as so many things can go wrong but it looks like you’ve managed perfectly. We’re gearing up to do the same but there never seems enough time in the day 😀 Enjoy the rest of your unpacking…

  4. This is such a lovely new home Clowie. But as we are also on WP, can you tell us why you moved? I think you are now self hosted, yes? We are not sure, but sort of want to move to self hosted as well. Can’t wait to see you totally settled in

    • Thank you, Savannah, I’m glad you like it.
      Yes, I’m using the self hosted version of WP. I have quite a few reasons for wanting to do this, but the main one is to have more control and flexibility. I’m happy to chat more about it by email if you’d like to know more.
      Enjoy the weekend!

  5. We’re here, C. Congratulations on your new “place.” We’re following by email like we usually do. See you around the neighborhood.

    Love and licks,

  6. Wow, you did it! Congratulations!

    I love the new theme. It’s very clean and fitting for a snowy white dog (at least until she finds some mud to play in). And the Pyr badge in the header is gorgeous.

    • Thank you, it’s very exciting to have moved!
      I do enjoy playing in mud, it puzzles me that bipeds don’t – except when they’ve paid a fortune at a spa!
      I’m pleased you noticed my new badge, that went through a few iterations!

  7. Hi Clowie! I like it here.. 🙂 I will be following by email or add you to my Feedly Reader.

  8. Wow, the new blog looks so neat! Congratulations on the new move, Clowie!

  9. You’ve done a really nice job on your new site–it looks GREAT!! Mom hasn’t gotten up the nerve to do a move.

  10. Hi Clowie! Nice new home here – the blog looks fabulous – just like you!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  13. Nice blog Clowie!

  14. Congratulations on your new home! It looks great, I love how open and bright it is. Do you mind if I ask what the theme is called? I’m looking for a new one and really like this. Thanks!

    • Thank you very much, I’m glad you like it.
      Of course I don’t mind you asking about the theme! It’s called Nirvana [http://wordpress.org/themes/nirvana]. It’s very flexible, it has loads of options built in making it easy to change the layout, colours, front page etc.

  15. Oh I love your new site!!!!

  20. I love the new look! You’re far braver than I am in moving to a self-hosted blog. 🙂

    • Thank you, I’m glad you like it. Moving is a big step, there are a lot of factors to consider. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while.

  21. There you are, Clowie! We made the switch, too. Do you mind sharing what platform you switched to? We moved to Blogger almost a year ago and lost a lot of our WordPress followers. Our friends seem to have a harder time with comments as well…have you experienced this as well? Love the new look and feel of the site! We’ll be sure to check in often. Much love, The Scottie Mom.

    • I’m glad you found me, it’s lovely to see you! I’m glad you like my new site. I’ll pop over to visit you soon.
      I don’t know whether you’re aware, but you can get the WordPress software from wordpress.org to run yourself. I’m on a self-hosted version of WordPress.
      I’ve had a lot of trouble commenting on Blogger sites over the last few months. I’ve given up using my WP id and use a Google one, which seems to work better.

I love reading your comments
