Up and running

Hello! This is just a quick post to say… I MADE IT! I’ve made the jump to hosting my own website, and while there is a long way to go to get it organised and pretty, it’s here. I spent most of my weekend migrating from one laptop to another, and I always get antsy when moving my files around, even when I have backups of backups! So when that finished, it left very little time to sort the new blog home out…or write! So I’ve got a lot of work to make up this week.

And if anyone out there has knowledge about the best way to backup a WordPress.org site (hosted on Dreamhost), please feel free to get in touch ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve backed it up once now, but as I just pointed out, I can get pretty anal retentive about this stuff. I also need to figure out things like how to make sure people who were signed up to receive my blog via email will get switched over to this one, etc. But I’m working on it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for reading!!! Stay tuned ๐Ÿ™‚

Corfu. Totally unrelated, but I’d like to go back.

Migration

So this weekend my goal is to begin moving my blog over via wordpress.org to a new domain with a new name and new everything. I’m a bit scared, to be honest, as I’ve only just started this one up, and I’m asking all those newbie questions: will it be worth paying for? Do I blog enough to make the hassle worth it? Will anyone follow me? Etc. etc. But while I’ve enjoyed using wordpress.com, I feel it’s a bit limiting and I see other people doing nifty things with their websites I’d like to do with mine, that I gather can be done when you’re paying for it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Considering new horizons… and URLs, believe it or not!

I’m going to give it a try, and for anyone out there reading this, I’ll post an update before I move across (if I can figure out how all this works) and let you know. Still undecided on the new URL/username. Thinking either cheyennecampbell.com, or aleapinthedark.com, or ย chylucampbell, or something similar. Not sure whether it’s best to use my name as the URL, or my blog name, or maybe an abbreviated version of my name. Ahh! Decisions. ๐Ÿ™‚

Suggestions?

Peace out for now!
