I’ve known for some time now that to have real cred in the blogophere you need to self-host your blog. I put it off for a while, researched, put it off for a while longer, asked lots of questions, procrastinated again, thought it all too hard, asked some more questions until finally I was ready. I knew it was time, like a bird leaving the nest, to shed the easy world of Blogger and dive into my very own website.
So on Saturday afternoon I started. And 4 beers later, before Ben had even finished cooking me dinner I had the bones completed.
I surprised myself by installing Wordpress without having to ask for any help and almost fell off my chair when I imported all of my posts to the new site without a hitch. Sure a few elements took me a while (and the odd YouTube tutorial) to master and there are plenty of widgets and plugins still to add but all in all I’m pretty proud of my effort.
