This whole transferring the blog over to my own domain has been an exercise of complete and utter blundering…and yet, things look relatively normal around here.  This is the perception I like to cultivate. 🙂

I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at how smoothly this transfer has gone.  It’s pretty easy to figure out this stuff if you’re willing to do a little reading and tense up your gray muscle every once in a while.  (Mine’s all balled up into a tight, rubbery knot in the center of my skull.)

But truly, the software is pretty easy.  I still don’t understand half of what I’m doing, but there ya go.  At least I got the dang word count dinosaur image reinstalled…no small feat.  And I’m trying to hold myself back from installing every cool plug-in I meet.  There’s so much fun stuff out there!

I’m going to try to blog in a little more organized and coherent manner in the upcoming days over this whole blog-to-domain transfer using extremely lay language (of which I am a native speaker) for those folks who might be entertaining a future move into self-hosted waters themselves.

But the list of website fixes is a mile long, and so I’m working my way slowly down the list in between the most important work:  writing.  I’m under deadline for my writer’s group, and if I don’t get this story in on time, I don’t get to wear my two-toed ninja shoes and I’ll have to share my ice cream.  Not this time, baby!  😉

    Congrats on the successful conversion!! It looks like it was seamless! 🙂 But now I don’t get updates of when you make a new post 🙁 Where’s the subscription option to your blog??

      Seamless? Hah! I’ve got Irish flags hanging all over the place and plug-ins I don’t know how to work…but thanks. 🙂 Don’t worry. I’m in the process of designing an email template, and I’ve transferred over the email subscriptions from the old site…so give me a week? and I’ll have that up and running. BTW, still got your pizza in the freezer. It’s waiting for another red wine occasion, methinks. 🙂
