CCK is Moving!

It’s not you, it’s me…

(By the way, stupidest break-up line ever)

I know a lot of you have had issues with my blog being slow or not loading for you lately. I’ve had those issues too!

For a while now, I’ve been getting too much traffic for my shared server, and so I am finally biting the bullet chocolate chip cookie (who wants to bite a bullet? Yuck!) and moving to my own server.

So the real question of the day: Does this blog look strange?

Just ignore any oddities you see for the rest of today as the bloggie moves; hopefully it will be back—and running much more quickly!—very soon.

Also, I was surprised flabbergasted at the overwhelming interest in the giveaway post. There ended up being over 3,000 comments on that post! 😕 It took me a while to make sense of everything, but I finally wrote a wrap-up post and announced the winner.

See: Best Giveaway Ever Wrap-Up.

Thanks a ton for all your patience, and for not abandoning my blog completely out of frustration for its slowness.

Chocolate hugs!!!

    I never had a problem with the site, but I’m happy that you had so much traffic to crash it! I’m hoping the chia seeds will come to my house soon 🙂

  2. Kerryne says

    I wish I had your problem 😉 Happy for you that you are “moving on” to bigger and better servers! I just love all your chocolate-ness and have to admit I have made like a bazillion of your No guilt cookies for family functions and EVERYONE has raved about them! Only problem… I can’t stop eating them.

      Oh gosh, nooooo you don’t. I have had the worst day! They’re asking me to do all these technical things, like backing up my blog… I have had to google search until my eyes are ready to fall out! And now LiveWriter is refusing to post to my new site… I just want to share my fudge pops. Is that too much to ask, LiveWriter???!!!

      Oy, the joys of the internet! I am learning so much more from this whole experience than I ever learned in a classroom!

    It’s funny to read all these comments about wishing to have the same problem. I’m honestly glad I don’t and I’m sorry you’ve had to deal with this. I think I would freak out and forget it. I’m terrible with technology. I can’t wait for the blog to be completely moved. I love your desserts!

  4. Lilly says

    Yay for you, not for the problems, but for being so AMAZING and needing your own server… you rock girly! And congrats to the winner too, what a lucky duck! Also, I just wanted to let you know I received the chia seeds from your other giveaway, thanks so much for hosting it… it even came with free stickers and chia & chocolate bar samples, score!

  5. Ashley C says

    well if you have to have a problem too many readers is probably the best one 🙂 Im no compuer genius so i have no idea what it means to changer servers or whatever, as long as i can read your blog!!!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Well, there’s a whole “tech-y” way I could tell you to check, but here’s an easier way: if you see comments on the “Samoas Larabar” page, you’re still on the old site. If that post says “comments closed” you’re on the new one. That post didn’t transfer over in the move, so I lost all the comments.

  6. Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health says

    Aw Katie, I can’t imagine the trouble it has taken you to do all of this…but that is honestly great that you get so many views! You are fabulous 🙂

  7. Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine says

    I’m glad you got everything all fixed up! I’m sure the new host will provide for even better chocolate-covered ventures (if that’s even possible?) 🙂

  8. Sarah says

    Hooray for you Katie – another step in the life of my grown-up role model! I haven’t commented in a while. I havent read any of the posts this month! Guess why? I’m in India! For my cousins wedding (as junior bridesmaid). So much to do, i haven’t had time to sit! even if i did…. no internet connection. SO imagine my excitement when i go to stay over at my cousins house and find an internet connection. Excitement? Yes. Joy? mmmhm. Jumping up and down and screaming at the top of my lungs like i’ve never had internet before and waking up my cousin who came down with a freaky looking face mask that made me REALLY scream? Like duh. Pure bliss? OH YEAH! You missed me. I know. And if you’re mad i haven’t been around? What can i say? It’s you, not me. 🙂

  9. Aine @ Something to Chew Over says

    It’s a great sign that you need to move to a new server! I’d see it as a massive achievement 🙂

  10. Hannah @theflexitarianeater says

    wait that’s so weird…I could have sworn I commented on this post yesterday.

    in any event, I just wanted to check in to see if the Hannah who won was me?!?! when i saw the name Hannah my heart practically stopped from excitement… but I’m guessing it was another Hannah, or else you would have emailed me?

    thanks katie! 🙂
