Changes

by Jen on September 27, 2011

Hi everyone! 

Remember when I told you I was thinking of moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress?  Well, that change is finally happening….tonight!  I’ve been working with Ryan from Revive My Blog to come up with a new design.  He’s done some wonderful things for this little blog of mine, and I can’t wait to share them with you tomorrow.

But don’t worry, you won’t be affected!  If you subscribe to Family, Food, Fitness, and Fun, you should automatically be redirected.  Just watch for my awesome new website tomorrow icon smile Changes

Ciao!  I’m off to learn more about WordPress….

It does look good. So why Wordpress? Do you have to pay for Wordpress? Do a post on the why’s and how’s.

Do you like how I just told you what to do like that? Like I have that kind of power?

I switched to a “self-hosted” Wordpress. The difference is, if you have a blog address that is ???.blogspot.com or ???.wordpress.com, you don’t own your content. It could be removed at anytime and you can’t do anything about it. I wanted to own my website so that I have full control. Yes, I have to pay $10/year for my web address and I also pay about $50/year to a server that hosts my website, but to me, it’s totally worth it. I’ll do a post all about it….if you insist ;)

I like your new look but am sad that when I went to check out the company that you did it with they are no longer :C I am curious if you could email or DM on twitter how much it all cost. I am trying to decide if I want to start to spend some $$ on this hobby:D If my hubby’s got skiing and golfing and scotch I think I ought to get something too:D

LOL…scotch? I wasn’t expecting that one ;) Oh my, I just looked at the website, and I see you are right, the company is no longer. That’s sad. You could try Designer Blogs. I’ve had success with them in the past. They don’t cost a lot of money (like some designers who charge an arm and a leg!)
