My blog has moved!

If you’ve landed on my blog here, please note that I have moved effective March 1, 2018! 

This blog is automatically set up to re-direct traffic to my new site, but if you did not make it there for some reason, please go to https://edenbaylee.com from now on.

It’s the home to my new, shiny website where I will blog going forward.

All the contents of this site were transported to its new home as carefully as possible, but a few items may have gotten damaged along the way. If you notice any broken links, dented formatting, or misplaced content , please let me know with a note at my new site, or email me.

I would so appreciate it!

My sincerest thanks for your ongoing support and interest in my writing.

To say that I am grateful is not nearly enough, but I am EXTREMELY grateful.

Thank you for all you’ve given me since I started writing here November 2010. It’s been a long road but one which has afforded me numerous rewards.

So now … I march ahead and begin the next chapter.

I look forward to seeing you at my new home.

Much love,

eden

EDEN BAYLEE BOOKS is no more

My website http://www.edenbayleebooks.com has closed its virtual doors. The domain name is one I purchased for a site that showcased my books. It was primarily a static website.

My main activity has always been on this WordPress blog, which I opened in November 2010.

And though Wordpress.Com and I have had a good relationship all these years, it’s time to move on.

I won’t go into the details of all the changes I’ve been making over the past weeks, but the impetus for them has to do with updating the look of my site and giving me more control over the content. After much research into the two platforms, I decided to move from the free WordPress.com to the self-hosted WordPress.org.

Though I could have given my log-in and password to WordPress Support to make the transfer for me, I elected to tackle the job myself after reading all the tutorials. It sounded straightforward.

The backend of this blog may look like a swamp of codes and links and tags, but I was used to it after seven years of  blogging.

How hard could it be?

So … let me tell you—five days of cursing and sleepless nights later, I moved over all the information!

I won’t say it was difficult, but easy—it was not! Nor was it intuitive. It’s never as simple as they make it out to be in the tutorials. This is what happens when you are a “do-it-yourself” type of person. The good thing is I learned a lot about the finicky process, so if you ever decide to embark on the same type of data migration, I’m more than happy to share my tips if you run into similar issues.

If you visit this blog regularly, please continue to do so. I will try to make the transition as seamless as possible. Most of the work involves archiving and amalgamating information on the backend. It should not affect how you access my blog or what you see on the frontend, however … where technology is concerned, things may go wonky. (Don’t you love my sophisticated tech speak?). 😉

If you notice something odd/missing/broken in the next couple of weeks, it’s probably due to something I’ve done. It should be fixed before my new site goes live.

Moving forward, please continue to find me at: edenbaylee.com which I have mapped to this blog while I’m building the new site.

When the new website is up, this blog will revert to its original name of http://www.edenbaylee.wordpress.com and eventually close.

As always, thank you for stopping by. It gives me great pleasure to know you’re reading my words. Hopefully, the new site will look even more inviting. I aim to have it up by early February.

Music Monday celebrates Joni Mitchell

Last week was all about women for me, beginning with Monday’s music post featuring Ella Fitzgerald,  A few days later, a girlfriend and I attended a wonderful exhibit by American artist, Georgia O’Keeffe.

Fantastic show and worth seeing if you’re in Toronto, closing July 30th so go soon.

On Saturday, I hosted an all-female barbeque, It was great to bring six smart women of diverse backgrounds together for an evening of food and fun.

As I was trying to think of whom to feature this week, Joni Mitchell appeared on T.V. in a news item.

She seemed the obvious choice.

“Little Green” was written in 1967 about the daughter she gave up for adoption. Mitchell reunited with her thirty years later.

And then another woman made the news … Princess Diana died twenty years ago, hard to believe. 😦

Time flies, so I hope you take it slow and enjoy.

I Walked the @DaretoWearLove Runway to benefit @stephenlewisfdn #charity #lgbtq

The Dare to Wear Love 6 Gala and fashion show took place at the Ritz Carlton Friday, May 12th. It was an amazing evening, raising more than 275K for The Stephen Lewis Foundation‘s new LGBTQ Funding Initiative.

The new initiative will support organizations responding to HIV/AIDS within sub-Saharan African communities where HIV rates are highest.

As always, huge hugs and thanks to Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell of HOAX Couture, founders of Dare to Wear Love. They are two of the most generous people I know, and their tremendous energy brings out the best in everyone around them.

Many thanks also to designer Farley Chatto who created my beautiful dress, which I love!

Lovely man and designer, Farley Chatto

The evening was filled with love and hope. By celebrating the talents and commitment of Canada’s fashion community and artists, we all used our powers for good!

Thanks to everyone who supported me this year, either with a monetary donation to my Challenge or by sharing the event and encouraging me along the way. It all helped!

Below are a few pictures from the evening’s show, but there are hundreds more! You can see them on the Flickr galleries, accessible via the Photos link on the website.

Enjoy!
