Well hey guys.

20160410_171114

I think I did it. I think I’ve gone self hosted? (Note the slight anxiety in my voice? ?) I’m not entirely sure if I’ve done the whole process correctly. But my site seems to be up and running. I’ve got access to a lot more things. I’ve picked a new theme I liked. To be honest, I’m still confused about everything. I don’t even know if this post will get to you guys, but I’ve been told by my hosting site that everything has been transferred, and that should include all my blogging friends.

I’m still a little dazed by the whole process and still trying to work things out. For now, this is just an update post to see if everything has gone according to plan.

I guess Β I’ll find out right? πŸ™‚

If this does work, feel free to check out my new theme and blog, I had fun with it. In the meantime, I’ll still be here, with a look of slight bewilderment on my face, trying my best to get the hang of things. Don’t worry though, I’ll get there.

Angela.

    1. Thank you so much Em! I was pretty confused for most of the day, but at the end, it all seems to have transferred okay, and you guys are all still here which was my biggest worry ?

  1. Everything looks great Angela and your posts showed up for me properly in Reader! I thought you’d want to know that it took longer than usual for your page to load for me.

    I’m planning to go self-hosted soon. Did you handle this yourself or did you pay WordPress or a third-party to handle the transfer for you? Will you write a post about the process?

    1. Hi Keith! I was aware that my site takes longer to load now. It may be because of my theme, it’s big on images, so it takes a while to load up.
      I went with Siteground, and they handled the transfer for me as that was easier for me. I’ve just posted about my experience with the process today actually πŸ™‚
