Taking a Leap of Faith!

Later today I’m taking a flying leap! A leap of faith is more like it.

I’ve made the decision to move from WordPress hosted blog (free) to a self-hosted WordPress blog. What this means is that either I or a host of my choice will be moving my blog from the WordPress server over to their server. I have decided to trust my host to do the move. I can only imagine the mess I would make!

This might also mean at some point over the next few days (depending on the day the make the move), your ability to get access to something here will be impeded. Or it might mean a jumble of things get mixed up for some reason.

So, I ask your patience with no posting this week and whatever the techno-gremlins decide to make happen during the move.

See you soon!

  1. Congratulations, Sherrey. I have found this process to be very challenging but always well-worth the effort in the end. Wishing you a smooth transition!

    1. I couldn’t help but think of you, Kathy, as I wrote this up. In fact, almost wrote an aside to you, but decided yours was behind you! We should try to find a time to chat real time soon.

  2. Good luck Sherrey! Let patience be your guide. Happy Equinox tomorrow.

    1. Yes, patience must be my guide because I have no idea what’s going on behind the scenes. Happy Equinox to you tomorrow also.

  3. Hi Sherrey: Good luck with the transition. I tried to comment but can’t sign in to my WordPress account. Now I have to find out why…. Arghhhhh. Anyway, good luck. Leslie

    1. Thanks for the good luck wish! Hope you have no more hangups with yours. Thanks much, Leslie!

  4. Best wishes on the transition!

    1. Thanks, Linda!

  5. Good luck Sherrey and don’t forget to let us have your views on whether the self-hosted site is better. I have been pondering a move as well.

    1. Thanks, Dorne, for the good luck! I’ll be sure to let you know how the move goes. It’s a little crazy making right now. 🙂

      1. Thanks for letting us know, Sherrey. I am thinking of doing the same. It’s supposed to be better so I hope you’ll let us know the pluses and minuses of this endeavor!

        1. You bet, Mandy!

            Hi Sherrey, l dunno what to say for l don’t even understand what am doing, save that l blog and seemingly don’t get lost.
            Moving host, severs etc is still future tense for me.
            I therefore salute ur leap and just wonder if l should sign up to follow u here allover.
            Thanks, Marie

          2. Marie, it’s taken years for me to get up the courage to do things like this, and you’ll get it too. As for signing up again, if you’re receiving via email, it shouldn’t be a problem.

  6. Good luck, Sherrey!

    1. Thanks, Cate — it worked!
