As of tonight, I will be moving my blog to self-hosted WordPress! This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time, and I’m super excited (and nervous!) about it. My main reasons for moving to self-hosted WordPress have to do with the fact that I want more creative freedom with my blog and to make it seem more professional to hopefully gain a greater following.
This seems like the perfect time to make my move. It’s a new year, I have the money for both the hosting and the Ultimate Book Blogger plugin by Nose Graze, and because I’m on a break I’ll have the time to goof around and figure out how everything works.
However, this move also means I will need your patience and support. I don’t really know how long it will take me to make the new look I have in mind for my site and to reformat posts and do all the technical stuff, so please stick with me through this process. I’d also like some help advertising my new site, which will be at http://www.bibliophilials.com. To my current followers, I think I will be able to get most of you transferred to the new site via a special plugin I’ve been reading about, but I’m not quite sure how to resubscribe my email followers. A smooth transition for my readers is important to me, so hopefully I’ll be able to get these issues resolved very soon, but please be patient while I figure it out.
If you have any tips for transferring WordPress.com to wordpress.org, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments! Thank you in advance for supporting me on my new adventure 🙂
