So I finally did it!
After talking about it for ages and ages, I finally switched my WordPress.com blog over to a WordPress.org one.
What does this mean to you bakers out there?
Well, hopefully nothing. Hopefully you won’t even notice the difference. You don’t need to do anything to keep following (thanks for that by the way) But for me it means that I now have a grown up blog where writing posts has become a bit more technically challenging. I now have the potential to add advertising and affiliate links (to help pay for the techy stuff!) and I’ll be able to sell the eBook I am currently writing – albeit slowly.
I’ve just written my first post on the new self hosted site and it’s gone pretty well. I’ve navigated my way around the dashboard and uploaded photos pretty much like I always have. It’s funny how something you are scared/anxious/worried about doing isn’t such a big deal once you actually just get on and do it! I’m very excited about this next phase of my blogging. Onwards and upwards.
So, it’s business as usual here at Cakes, Bakes and Cookies.com but if you see any glitches or find any links are broken, please, please let me know so I can fix them (or at least find some clever techy person to help me fix them… I’m still learning)
See you for some chocolate cake in about 2 minutes!
Well done Emma xxx
I was wondering where you had gone… posts don’t appear in my WordPress reader any more 🙁 so I shall have to subscribe by email instead! 🙂 xx
Ahhh I wondered why my follower stats had gone down so dramatically! That happened when I switched to self hosted.
Yes if you would re-follow I would be very grateful! I shall have to work out how to send a message to all the others I have lost!
Thanks for letting me know hun.
It seems so silly that it doesn’t transfer over – I can still comment using my WordPress account – but not like or follow 🙁 Damn technology! x
You have re-appeared in my Reader! A blip, or have you changed something? xx
