Goodbye Birthday Girl

7.28.2011

A change is coming!  If you haven't yet heard the news... this Monday, Birthday Girl will officially become CAKE.  Though I have mixed emotions about losing the Birthday Girl title, I'm thrilled to unveil our new site. After months of hard work, creative revisions and indecision, I can honestly declare it quite beautiful and something I'm proud to put my name to.

Perhaps you're curious as to why the site is being re-branded.   There are a number of good {and some not so good} reasons, but what it came down to was this... I began this blog as a simple creative outlet and it has grown beyond all expectation. Though birthdays will always remain the heart and soul of the blog, it felt like time to remove the limitations caused by it's name.  With CAKE, I hope to open the door to more unique projects, out of the box events and embrace good design and creativity wherever inspiration strikes.

Though you may begin to see some changes in what gets featured, those of you who are longtime readers can ease your minds that all existing content will remain archived on the new site.  It's easier to navigate too- including a better breakdown of content and more detail on how to submit your events and products. 

Thank you for all of your sweet comments and Facebook posts over the past several weeks. I truly appreciate your words of encouragement- a transition like this is never easy and I hope I can count on your support.  The site will be down over the weekend while we transition, but come back on Monday and you will {fingers crossed} be automatically redirected to our new URL:

www.cakeeventsblog.com

I can't wait to share this new venture with you.
