Hi, everybodyyyyy! I hope each and every one of you are doing fabulous as always. You all still look beautiful from what I’ve seen!
Anyway, I decided to self-host my blog a while back—and if all goes well, all of you who have subscribed to follow me via the WordPress reader should move over seamlessly. (I’m keeping my fingers crossed anyway.) Any of you who have subscribed to this blog via email should not be affected whatsoever (let’s hope).
The entire process of converting over has been a little technical and time-consuming for me to say the least (hence, a big part of the reason for my absence). But all the hard work I put into it was totally worth it. I’m still trying to make this blog look the way I want it to in the easiest way possible on my own without any hired help. (Always try the least expensive way first, I always say.) But that involves a lot of researching, reading books, and Googling on my own during what little free time I can find. This will be a constant work in progress as I’m always finding new ways to tweak it.
I hope to also write about my blogging experiences in the hopes of possibly helping any of you along the way in your blogging adventures—whether you’re just starting out or have decided to go to the next level. I’m glad to pass along what I’ve learned and help you avoid any mistakes I made during the process. I even learned how to do some of my own “coding” behind the scenes—if you can believe that! I don’t envy programmers at all. That’s one thing I’ve never had a desire to do in life—be a programmer. But yet I taught myself a little about how to do it.
Also, I just recently returned from vacationing in India for about 16 days and can’t wait to tell you all about my exciting adventures there! (I mean, when did I become a world traveler?) But once I get all the ins and outs figured out of self-hosting this blog, I’m hoping to be back in your faces on a more consistent and regular basis.
I’ve definitely missed each and every one of you lovely people!
So, if you have nothing else to do today, think about and then start the process of self-hosting your own blog.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Self-hosting your blog can open up a whole new world of opportunities for you and bring you different types of freedom in your life you never knew possible.
