I wasn’t going to do it. Nope. No siree.
I was doing good on WordPress.com.
But then, something asked “why not?”
You see, a part of me wants to go ahead and possibly make a living out of this, even if it’s miniscule. I mean, paid to write? How awesome is that? Paid to blog? Even awesome-er. And while I’m not sure if that’s the direction I want to move into, it’s easier if it’s done through WordPress.org. You can customize a little more, etc.
It’s not only that, though.
A part of me has always, always, loved figuring things out for myself. I’m a curious soul and now that I’ve been blogging for a couple of years, I want to see what it’s like self-hosting. It’s time that the training wheels come off, so to speak, and see what can be done from this type of platform.
You can’t move forward if you never take the first step.
And I’m not saying that all bloggers should take this step. For me, this is something I want to do. If you’re happy where you’re at, great! I’m happy for you. Like I said, I’ve always been a curious soul and I like figuring out how to do certain things. I’ve always been curious about self-hosting and using WordPress.org, so viola!
And since I made this step, I had to export and import things from the other platform so certain posts may not have everything. Some of the images may be missing and hopefully everything retained its format (*crosses fingers*), but if they haven’t, thank you for your patience while I put everything back together.
May this be an interesting and fun journey! And hopefully I moved things over correctly.
