Welcome to the newly relaunched Being Tazim blog! I’ve spent a long time over the long-weekend, (and an extra day), working on this new look! I am now using wordpress and have my own server. I’m pretty excited to be moving this blog in to a new direction and spending more time on it.
As you can see, there are lots of great events coming up –
Blogfest (Sept 10-12) and Blogmania (Sept 15-16) are 2 blog-hop giveaway events that I will be participating in, both as a blogger and as a shop owner. That’s right – you can win 2 gift certificates to use in either of my stores during those times, by visiting this blog! There will be ‘next’ buttons to take you to other blogs for more giveaways, so why not start here at 12:01 am EST?
Thrifty Travel Series will take place here September 21st to 29th, while I am away in Seattle/Portland. It will focus on budget travel, include ideas/tips for packing for carry-on, and several posts on what to do in Vancouver – the first of several city guides I have planned, which will be available in .pdf to download.
Home Decor and Interior Design Event will be major! I have several amazing interior designers lined up to provide guest posts, giveaways, videos and tours, and tons of ideas, inspiration and information related to home decor. There will be daily door prizes for commenting on featured guests’ posts! Event takes place October 10th to 24th. If you are interested in contributing in some way, please fill out the contact form.
Other changes: You can see the new categories on the right sidebar – I will primarily be blogging about those things. Greg will be contributing to the foodie category with more cookware reviews and recommendations.

I stumbled upon your site as you were making the switch. I must say, I am quite impressed with the new look and feel of the blog.
Oh, and I love the stationary. It is beautiful.
How nice to meet you for the first time! Glad you stumbled upon it. 🙂

I found it via Google Friend Connect, because I've been following for a while. It seems to be working great, the header and background are very cute 🙂 The whole page looks very professional, well done!
Thanks Katherine – glad it all worked out, I've heard so many horror stories! 🙂
Congratulations Tazim! Your blog looks incredible! So glad I hopped on over from the Blog Frog forum!

Hi Malina – I was wondering who that was! 🙂 I can delete it for you. Thanks so much for your comments!!
Hi Tazim – it looks great!!! You did an awesome job! I came over from the blog frog forum – Parker PR although I am a follower (just haven't opened up my reader yet this morning) 🙂
