After much thought and deliberation, I have decided to move my blog from wordpress.com to a self-hosted blog. Over the next few days there might be some site interruptions and I apologize in advance. This is an exciting time for me and I know in the long run it will be well worth it to my readers as well. 🙂
In the beginning I was happy with the WordPress blog system, but as time went by I wanted to do more, but there were limitations. There were certain things that I couldn’t do because I wasn’t on a self hosted blog. That got me thinking: what if I move out of the comfort zone and into the self-hosted platform? Yes it will be challenging. Yes I might lose all my followers in the migration process. (I hope all of you head on over to the new site and re-subscribe 🙂 ) But in the long run, the benefits will outweigh the risks.
Bookythoughtsandme.wordpress.com is moving over to Bookythoughtsandme.com! For a while it might seem that things are a little chaotic, but I hope to minimize it. There is a lot more freedom with having a self-hosted blog, and you can add in plug-ins and other features to make the blog even better. Also, the name itself sounds more professional without having WordPress after it.
This blog will remain here for a bit just to keep everyone informed, but it will eventually be deleted.
Here’s to the start of a new adventure as a self-hosted blogger. I hope to see you all on the other side 🙂
