It has finally happened. For a long time, I had been thinking about moving my blog from Blogger over to WordPress (self-hosted) and I finally took the plunge.
My blog is my hobby and is something I enjoy doing, otherwise, I would not have continued with it for over 3 1/2 years. I felt it needed a revamp, a change, and I would really like to turn this hobby into a profitable venture if that is at all possible at some point in the future.
I have to point out that I did not migrate my site over to WordPress myself, but rather than deal with the stress of whether I was getting things right or not, I teamed up with Laura over at Blogger2WP to do that part for me. For $79 you can get everything copied from your blog over to WordPress, plus you get a Free theme.Laura was very professional and made sure my mind was at ease every step of the way because it is a scary thing putting your trust in someone to control the many years of work you have done. Over a weekend while Laura was busy migrating my blog over, I was out with my family making memories and enjoying the little bit of sunshine we did have.
No stress. No Mistakes. No Wasting Time.
It has only been a few days so far and I till have lots of tweaking to do and I have tons of new things to learn until I am happy with it, but I can already see a massive difference in the way that my blog looks and I feel more confident in the way everything works. WordPress for me just seems to offer all the things I have been looking for, hoping for and the future looks positively bright.
