Raise your hand if you’re tired of hearing Bossy talk about her blog’s recent redesign. Now put your hands down because Bossy is not talking about her redesign, she’s typing about it.

As you all know, Bossy loves change. She loves change as much as finding out that all of her post URLs were altered when she switched to WordPress, which means she lost three years of incoming links.

And then Bossy checked the little box that agreed to the terms of her cancellation, and she hovered the arrow over the Cancel Paid Membership button and she thought about her happy years with TypePad and all the blues songs she wrote for them, and she shed a tear and then she clicked her mouse and. What’s this?
