Upcoming domain change

Dear Pixel Scrapper community:

We've got some exciting news: we are preparing to change the domain of our site soon from pixelscrapper.com to digitalscrapbook.com. But don't panic! Pixel Scrapper itself isn't changing. We will be exactly the same site, with the same name and same feel that you know and love. Just a new address. smiley

Changing our domain isn't something we take lightly, but something that Marisa and I have thought about off-and-on for a long time. We have been interested in the digitalscrapbook.com domain for quite a while (several years, actually), but it's only recently that we got an opportunity to acquire the domain, and decided to take it. We believe it's a strong domain name that clearly indicates what our site is about, and will help us attract new visitors and boost our search engine placement over time for searches involving digital scrapbooking, which will help our community grow and thrive into the future.

This may seem like a big change, so I want to be clear again that Pixel Scrapper itself won't be changing (we have not been bought by another company or anything like that!). In fact, you likely won't even notice anything when we switch over to the new domain: pixelscrapper.com will continue to redirect to our site, and old bookmarks and such will continue to work just fine. And we will still be the same old Pixel Scrapper. smiley

We just wanted to make this announcement so that you wouldn't be surprised or caught off guard to look up at your browser address bar and see digitalscrapbook.com where you expect pixelscrapper.com to be. smiley

This change is already in the works, and we don't foresee any major issues or problems, but we understand that a change like this can be a little bit unnerving, and might take a little bit of time to settle. Naturally if you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to let us know. But I recommend letting the dust settle a little bit, so you can see if everything is working fine once we make the switch.

Some of you "old timers" may remember when Pixel Scrapper was located at pixeldmemories.com. We survived that domain change, and I think we will survive this one. smiley Thanks for being patient with the changes over the years, and for being with us on this journey. smiley

Thanks for all your hard work

Well that's exciting! The new domain should definitely help with exposure. Since you have the redirect, we should all survive just fine. smiley

Thanks for the notice, great work!!

I actually love this. I love that this site that I enjoy so much continues to grow and thrive. ♥♥♥

Hey, if the domain change drives more people to your site, I'M ALL FOR IT! Not that you needed our permission or opinion, but I think it's a good move for DigitalScrapbook.com. Yay!
