Hello NativeAppropriations.com!

Hi Everyone!

If you hadn’t noticed, something is a little different around here…I finally took the plunge and made the switch over to wordpress and my own domain (omg I know, right?). I’m super excited, and relieved that most of the transition seems to have gone relatively smoothly, though there are still a lot of little things that need fixing and  adjusting.

So please bear with me over the next few days (weeks?) as I try and tweak and refine all the things that have gone wrong (such as the thousands of comments stuck in disqus limbo, the fact that none of the images are centered in posts anymore, there are no more “jumps” in any of the posts, and any youtube video I ever embedded is lost)…but it’ll get done! I’ll definitely need some help to figure it all out, so if you come across any broken links, missing pictures, or anything else that seems wonky or off, please let me know. Email is still the same, nativeappropriations(at)gmail(dot)com.

I’m really looking forward to playing around with the functionality and customizability of wordpress, I already have some grand plans in the works, so please keep checking back as I add and change.

A very happy new year to all of you, I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!

Much love,

Adrienne K.

PS-I would also like to send a HUGE wado (thanks) to reader C. who sent me a donation that covered all the costs of this move and paid for my theme. It was the best Christmas surprise I could have ever asked for. I am constantly humbled and blown away by all of your support–thank you to each and every one of you!

    Keep up the good work, and you’re encouraging me to maybe switch to wordpress as well… blogger has been giving me a headache for a while with my own blog…

    I don’t normally reply to things here, preferring just to read and learn, but this layout is so lovely! Looks great! :)

  • Yayayayay WordPress! Doors are opening for NA this year—if no-how else, technologically. You’ll be amazed what you can do, if you want to do it. Congratulations! (I don’t know why my name isn’t appearing; it’s Adam, from the Dredge Cycle)

  • Hi Adrienne,

    The new website looks great! Congrats!! And what an amazing gift.

    By way of notifying you of broken links, I noticed the Facebook icon embedded onto the site isn’t hyperlinked. The world needs to read those “ignorant and malignant” Facebook posts!!! (Totally kidding, of course–the nearly 10K Facebook followers would have something to say about that!)

    2013 will be a good year. :)

    Adrienne, I just wanted to say congratulations and that the website redesign is beautiful. I started reading back in 2010 when I was in my last year of undergrad getting a visual arts degree. I took a course on Aboriginal North American art and through looking at the work and websites of contemporary Native artists, stumbled across your blog. Living in Canada, we like to think that we’re further along and more tolerant that others, but living in one of the most diverse cities in the world (Toronto) I still see many of the issues you discuss go unnoticed. Thank you for explaining the concerns facing a very much alive, thriving, and diverse nation of people in a way that’s clear, accessible, and informative.
