Well hello there!

Hello Everyone! As you can tell I’ve transitioned to the WordPress theme for my new site! Now I will also be blogging from www.chicrunner.com from now on. Sorry about the confusion but please update all your feeds, readers, and bookmarks if you want to, because we aren’t doing any more moving from here. Phewf!

So on that note, welcome to my new and much improved site, or so I like to think.  I like to call this ChicRunner 2.0 :) As you can see, the layout is a little different and there are many new features that you can creep around on, which I know all you little lurkers will love! On this very first post,  I’ll explain everything and then you can poke around on all your spare time. Here’s a quick rundown of the links and new aspects of the site. Try not to be overwhelmed with excitement.

The links at the top in the header section:

First, we have the Home link – This will take you to the home page of the blog where all the posts will be anytime you click it.

Then we have the About Danica section – Surprise! If you didn’t know my name was Danica, you do now. This is all about me so if you ever are confused about me, then you can visit here and read about me.

To the right, we have the Great Company section – This is where my most favorites links for companies will be. These companies didn’t pay me to be on the site, but I have chosen them because of their great customer service and amazing products. I like to think of them as the Creme de la Creme of companies. I will update this ever so often if something amazing comes up. You can click on the images and go to their sites.

Next up we have the Contact section – This will be super easy to contact me, if you ever feel the need to. Just fill that out and I will get it. Also, my new email address is [email protected], just in case you have the urge to email me as well.

Then we have the Links I Love section- This is a typical blog roll but since I love so many, it’s pretty long! There are some GREAT runners and friends on there. So sorry if I forgot you, but it’s a beast to update it, and I’m not the most web savvy person so I might update it in a while, sorry if some how you got lost in there. I’ve tried to catogorize everyone to a certain extent so you can sort through them all and find some new friends!

Next is the Sweet Deals section. As you know, I love deals. This section will have links to sites that are having promotions, like 25% off any order over $100.  This section will be updated as new promotions are released. I have also decided that instead of posting deals every Thursday,  I will update this section of the site instead. Every Thursday in my regular post I will highlight a few deals and will also remind everyone that the deals page is updated. Then you can look on there anytime you might need some sweet new workout gear!

Lastly we have the T’s and C’s or Terms and Conditions. I call them the T’s and C’s at work, and this is where you can find the ‘rules’. Basically, don’t be mean, don’t copy my stuff, etc. Also the this is where the thank you section of the site can be found here.

Then we have the lovely sidebar on the right hand side.

The top section is where you can find the recent posts that I’ve posted. There will be 5 in there at a time.

Underneath that there is the aStore button. This is one of my new favorite features! This is where if I recommend almost any product you can buy it through Amazon.com. There are 5 categories in the store, and you can browse through and order anything you want from my ‘store’. I picked out a ton of my favorite products, books and random stuff in there, so enjoy that as well.

Under that, you can find my blogger site, where the Chic Runner was started. Don’t worry you can still scan through the old site but clicking on the link underneath that.

Then we have the lovely Twitter Bird that links to my twitter site if you wanted to follow me on there too.

I’m still getting used to posting in WordPress and all the little kinks are still getting ironed out, but stay tuned because I’m pretty sure this is only the beginning of something GREAT! (oh and tomorrow I will have a SWEET contest! and next Monday, another one… How’s that for enticing?!) Things might change a little bit here and there, but I’ll keep you informed.

Doesn’t seem too confusing right? I hope you guys enjoy and I hope it lived up to the hype too! I cannot give enough thanks to Matt, Jeff, and Bert though. They seriously helped me basically do everything for the site. You see, I may be good at running, but not so good at designing and web codes.

So sit back, and enjoy this complimentary glass of my favorite champagne (and ridiculously inexpensive!), Ballatore that I’ve poured for us. Cheers!

    The terms and conditions are f’ing (friggin’, that is) awesome!!

    I’m actually considering plagiarizing them verbatim on my site…which everyone should of course visit.

    Very swanky! I love all the different links listed across the top. I’m a sucker for awesome organization.

    Sadly, I, too, am having problems getting the new site added to my Google reader. Think your techy friends could add a “RSS feed” link somewhere on the page?
