Something is Different! - Introducing Dora Reads

Diary of a Reading Addict has become Dora Reads!

The new URL is dorareads.co.uk





I've been meaning to buy a custom domain for a while, and I've just about scratched together the funds to do it!

(This has left me slightly out of pocket however - so if anyone can afford to donate to my ko-fi, I'd be much obliged.)





I came up with 'Diary of a Reading Addict' when I was in a bad place mentally (it's amazing it was that coherent, tbh.) And for a while now I've been uncomfortable with it.

It's the 'addict' bit - it's too close to ableism for my personal comfort.

But I wanted to keep a form of continuity - and I've been shortening things to DORA for a while now. Plus the Latin name Dora means 'gift' - and what could be more perfect?! 




So I am proud to introduce you to Dora Reads! :)

  1. Love the change! Just a question, will I have to add the new url in order to see your posts? Or am I good considering I could see this post on my reading list?

    1. If I've done things right (key word *if* - me + technology = ahhh! Lol.) then the old URL should re-direct here :)

      If you stop getting updates then you may have to re-add.

    1. I've transferred my BlogLovin followers to this URL, so it *should* be OK - but if you find you're not getting updates, then unfollow and refollow :)
