Don't mention the CL word

Morning everyone

Has anyone else had an e-mail advising about the new look CL site??

I was curious so followed the link:-

Sorry I can't do it properly-been trying for ages-you'll need to copy and paste.

Apparently merged all 6 magazines into 1 website...

I'm saying nothing except-
Thank heavens I have a nice place to play every day....

They've merged Good Housekeeping, CL, She, Coast, House Beautiful and Prima-all onto one site-"All about you."

It doesn't affect me as haven't been on there for ages-just find the whole marketing/business theory of it fascinating.

New format doesn't appear to be very popular with some of the regulars. But that's human nature I guess-people hate change.

Their changes just make this site all the more special...
(maybe they couldn't stand the competition WW??!! Lol)

Ivy's Avatar My attention was drawn to the site yesterday by a comment on an other forum and I must say I find that site quite confusing and very unattractive but as I only went there to see how they were doing their heads in I won't miss much I know where to go if I want company.Laughing

Exmoorjane's Avatar Ditto to Ivy....I went over and looked yesterday and couldn't begin to figure it out. Felt sorry for the poor souls trying to find out where their forums and blogs had gone. Interesting though that they obviously can't get enough advertising to finance all the individual sites.....

Camilla's Avatar I did pop over to see if I could access my blogs I had left there, they were still there which I did not very much like the idea of. The new site is not that welcoming, quite drab in fact, and could not get into their archives to view my old blogs. I would have liked to have kept my old blogs from CL, it was as you say how I came to meet you all, saying that though, don't think I did MANY blogs.

That was my point exactly Ivy-so true.
Wouldn't go anwhere else but here.

Jane-You spotted what I did but wasn't quite sure whether to say. Hmmm. Interesting eh.

Westerwitch's Avatar I think you will all find that your blogs are still there if you didn't remove them. certainly when I signed in and added my advert - there under my profile were all my blogs including the one saying where we had all gone . . .I will leave them up as from time time we still get people coming to here via CL.
