Moving My Blog

movingblogtowordpressI finally took the plunge, and will be moving Thrifty Momma Ramblings to Wordpress this week. I am so excited and nervous about the move. It will take me a few days to have the blog designed the way I like it. You might see the blog design change a bit this week into week. I am having it professionally moved as it's a big undertaking. I just do not know enough about coding and such to move the blog myself without screwing something up and stressing myself out. I found a wonderful service that will do it for me plus set it all up for me for a very low price.

Once the move is complete, then I will let everyone in on the great service I found. I will be very busy for the next few days, and my next post will be on my brand new shiny site! I just wanted to update you guys as I'm not leaving, but just moving to make the blog better than ever. I have a great giveaway scheduled for the end of the week that you won't want to miss.

Good luck with the move! I did that a few years ago and it was stressful but it worked out smoothly. I hope yours does as well.

Not to worry, I just moved my LINUX blog recently and everything went without a hitch, It was stressful the first few days but after a lot of reading I learned the essentials, I am still learning the whole wordpress thing, Good luck

Good luck to you Bonnie. I moved mine 2 months ago by myself, it was fun and a great learned :)

if you are moving it and you have it as a.com instead of .wordpress you will be able to keep your entrecardf widget.

Self hosted Wordpress is a wonderful thing, indeed. I started First Arkansas News on my own server space on Wordpress almost two years ago and love it.

Cool! It will be the same domain I am guessing? Hope all goes well and I will see you there :)

goodluck looking forward for your new blog =)

Bonnie said...

Thanks everyone. Yes I already own my domain name (no blogspot) but I didn't want to lose any backlinks or PR so having someone do it professionally for me ensures I will retain all of my google SEO and readers.
