I’ve decided to bite the bullet (what does that mean, exactly?) and buy my own domain! So, please, change all your links, bookmarks, and subscriptions to my new address:
I’ll have more news soon, and the new site still has a little tweaking to be done, but I didn’t want to lose any more visits or comments in the transition, so please head over to my new address.
Yay congrats! Did you just upgrade your .com or set up a .org site? I’ve been thinking about doing that at some point. Especially changing my domain because right now it’s my name and that bothers me, lol. Either way, congrats! (And sorry for asking so many questions!)
I purchased a domain and site up a site. Upgrading the .com one wasn’t really the best option for me, because what I want is more freedom and control over my site. I want to be able to install whatever plugins I want, and screw around with the theme as much as I want. So, I went the WordPress.org route. I’ll be writing up a blog post on my experiences with it soon. :D
I thought I posted a comment on this.. and then I didn’t see it so I was really confused. It must’ve been waiting for you to approve it? Silly me. Anyways, yes! I look forward to reading your blog post about it because I’m definitely interested in hearing about it.
Yeah, I have no idea why it randomly held your comment for moderation. Sorry about that! Hopefully I’ll have my migration post up tomorrow. :)
Ah, we’re planning to move soon – as long as we have the money, too! Blogger is just kind of getting on my nerves right now. Congrats on your move, Kelly! Was it difficult/confusing? Which hosting service did you use? I know WP has a couple of recommendations, so I’d like to know which was the one people used most and enjoyed. Anyway, congrats again!
I definitely recommend switching to WordPress.org if you plan on moving away from Blogger. I ended up using Safe Shark Hosting, and they’re really great! I plan to write up a blog post about my transition, what worked, what didn’t etc. so hopefully you’ll find it useful. :)
Big move! Good for you. :) Now following you on Blog Lovin’ on your new site.
Thank you! :)
Awesome choice. I’ll be updating my stats shortly :)
I’m sure you can redirect traffic?
Thank you! And what do you mean exactly?
Okay, though you probably didn’t ACTUALLY want an answer… The origin of the phrase ‘bite the bullet’ is slightly controversial. It MEANS ‘to endure a painful or otherwise unpleasant situation that is seen as unavoidable’ allegedly coming from the practice of a patient clenching a bullet in their teeth as a way to cope with extreme pain when there was no anesthetic to be had. Though, more likely than not, a patient would bite a leather strap rather than a bullet.
ANYWAY… Sorry ’bout that. Congratulations on your move! I love WordPress.
Wow, hoy crap, thanks for the lesson! I had no idea. And you know, I thought to myself as I wrote that phrase that I should either look it up or avoid using phrases like that because generally I don’t like to USE phrases like that anyway. So… YOU SHOWED ME! I do appreciate it, so thank you! :)
