Pardon The Dust…
Sep 7 2007

aruni-headshot-sep07-200×200.jpgI am currently working with a fab designer to create a custom blog design.  The re-design should go live by middle of next week.  I know you are all going to miss the standard, plain wordpress template I’ve been using!  {insert sarcasm here}  I am also changing the name of the blog and making it indicative of the fact that I’m the one that is doing the blogging…not Babble Soft…even though I’m the founder. 🙂 

From what I’ve been reading at The Viral Garden, business bloggers really should not be blogging that much about their business anyway as people can only handle so many posts about how glorious it is.  [They can just go to your company’s Press page to figure that out.] Duh!  Took me a few weeks to get that, but now I understand.  I will still of course have links to my current ventures and post about Babble Soft stuff (e.g., baby tips) from time to time because that is part of my life.  

As people all over the world discover my blog, I hope they will get to know me and get a better understanding of why I started Babble Soft: to help new parents (and hopefully make a little money along the way).   Maybe they will want to share our stories with the expecting and new parents, business people, and/or entrepreneurs in their lives.

I will be posting less frequently until we figure out how to migrate the domain name and not lose all of our permalinks and linkbacks.  We could leave it but I think after some time that will get confusing.   I’ve been meaning to ask Mack at The Viral garden why his blog URL is but his blog name is different.  It still routes to his blog so I’m wondering if it’s just too hard to make the change???   I’ve been actively blogging for about 4 months now and have started to increase my rank on Technorati…I wonder if those link backs will all disappear.  Maybe someone out there will know the answer.

I hope y’all (as we say here in Texas) will like our new name and design!  I always take comfort in knowing I have the right to change my mind…but that would mean a ton of work to rebrand and change the URL which sounds like a good reason not to change my mind.  So I guess the new blog name will just have to stay entrepreMusings for the rest of my life.  😀

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Aruni I like the new design and it looks ‘cleaner’ and more professional now. And as for the domain change, I have had for months now, and if you go to that URL, it redirects you to my blog. I am going to eventually migrate everything to, I’m just making sure I have everything set up so I don’t lose my pagerank and keep as many of my links as possible.

    Thanks Mack. Actually the new design won’t go live until middle of next week. 🙂

    I am wondering how to change the domain as well without losing rank and links. If you have any tips, I’d love to hear them. We have an idea of how we are going to do it, but haven’t tested it out yet.

    Sorry Aruni! I haven’t been here in a while(I rarely visit blogs and usually read their feeds) and it looks like you have changed the right sidebar a bit since the last time I was here, which looks better. Maybe you didn’t and my memory is failing me 😉

    I’m trying to see if there is a way to make the change without losing links, and I don’t think there is. From what I’ve read, you can save your pagerank, but not the links. Which doesn’t make sense to me, but not much does 😉

    Hi Mack – I would be interested in learning how I can save my page rank. The last time we moved from a wordpress hosted blog to a self hosted one I pretty much had to start over and release the claim on Technorati to the blog.

    I just found your blog on I am exploring the world of blogs and had to read yours since I met you through Austin Business Babes. I have to say, you are constantly amazing me! I am so excited about what women have the capability to do, and you are a wonderful example of how a woman can manage being a mother and a business woman…and be successful at both!
