I decided to give the blog another makeover! What do you think?
I also have been thinking a lot about moving to a self-hosted site, and thus I have (successfully) moved my blog over from Blogger to a self-hosted WordPress site. It took quite a bit of research in order to make the move, but I feel like this was a good way forward for me – self hosted means I own my site and my content, which for me has become incredibly important. The idea of having all of my writing, photos and work disappear scares me.
The cost itself to self-host and own a domain is really very minimal. It was around $15/year for the domain and around $120 for 2 years of hosting through Bluehost.
I’m very happy with the result and think it was very much worth the cost and reading involved to move into my new space.
Please let me know what you think!
