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! 😉
