New Blog Domain!

Hello guys :) So I have a new blog domain, ta-da! Thanks to those who voted on my poll that was open for a week. It made my decision a lot easier for my domain name because I was torn between having jlyxoxo.com or questjen.com :/ I am very indecisive and that's just one of my slightly annoying traits haha. Don't ever ask me to make a decision because I just can't! And I really dislike making the 'wrong' decision.

So here are the results of the poll. If you didn't see it or weren't able to vote, it was located on the top right hand corner of my sidebar, next to my profile.

You may have read on my Twitter that my votes were pretty neck and neck and times but one managed to pull through and be the clear winner :) 22 votes went to questjen.com so now my blog's domain name is:

http://www.questjen.com

When you access my blog, it may still show up as http://jlyxoxo.blogspot.com because it takes a few days for the domain to... I guess 'set in' and show up on Google etc.

Even if you still type in my previous blog's URL, it will redirect you to my domain so don't worry!

For those who voted for jlyxoxo.com and might be a bit disappointed with my new URL, I will keep jlyxoxo as my Youtube account for my vlogs and videos, my picture watermark and email address.

I haven't really had the chance to see the benefits of having domain through Blogger but it has allowed me to create my own email address. However when I log into it I get logged out of Blogger. Google/Youtube/Blogger connections suck for me :(

Another new email address for you to contact me if need be is: jennifer@questjen.com

A big thanks to my boyfriend for allowing me to use his debit card to purchase my domain. I thought I could use my Paypal but turns out that it needs to be in the form of a credit/debit card. I waited for my poll to end so I could purchase it straight away. Turns out the poll ended at 3am! So I couldn't exactly wake up my parents and ask for their credit card details :/ Luckily my boyfriend was still awake

Thank you all once again. I wouldn't have gotten my own domain name if it wasn't for you guys :) This is something very new to me and now I have that feeling of ownership of my blog, you know? This can be my way of saying thanks to my 300 blog followers, sorry I wasn't able to hold a giveaway then.

But for my 400 followers, I am having a giveaway, to be announced some time this week! I can't wait to launch it hehe :)

So I hope everyone's well and taking care. I'll blog again soon.
