    Hi, My name is Alexandra and I write the food blog “Confessions of a Bright-Eyed Baker.” Currently, you have a link to my site on this post for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones. I now host my site at a different domain, and I would appreciate it if you would change the link to point to the recipe at the new domain. The correct link is:
