Blog/ Migration

{Welcome to my new blog}

Welcome to my "new" blog! I hope you'll like it here, 'cause it's my new home! ;)

I finally made the switch from Blogger to WordPress. Over the past few months I have been slowly working on making the change, I have been designing a new blog and gotten myself familiar with WordPress.
Eventually, I thought I had played enough and felt ready to turn the switch. I started the scary process of migrating my blog. And here it is! It turned out the switch wasn't that scary after all.  I have to admit that I was a little freaked out about the migration process, and have been building up courage to finally go through with it. I heard so many horror stories about lost content and subscribers. It scared me to think about losing any of your comments or you as a subscriber! But, from what it looks like so far, all posts, comments, and subscribers have made it over successfully and I'll keep my fingers crossed that it stays this way.

The blog will still need a few alterations here and there, so bear with me for the next few day, please. ;)

Until then, I hope you'll enjoy exploring the new blog. Please let me know if you run into any problem and I will try and find a solution.

    Like I said…awesome! Did you do it yourself? And did you go to wordpress.com or wordpress.org? Sorry, I’m full of questions!

      Tasha, I know exactly how you feel. It scared me a LOT before I just dove in and did the migration process. My tip: Set up a WordPress blog to play around with and get familiar with. That’s what I did for a few months.. :)
      xo!
