So back in good ye olde last winter (AKA December), I decided to buy my own URL for this blog. I was really excited, told everyone in my family and started the steps of moving it over there. I'm not really sure why I'm so into blogging, I just am. I just like it. It serves some purpose for me. Fills a void. Let's my creative juices flow. I don't need it for an income. I just like to write.
Anyway, actually setting my blog up in the new URL has been the debilitating battle of my life since then. Make no mistake that I've have changed the URL and then ALMOST exported my blog 1,000 times but I have always ended up chickening out before I complete the entire transaction. I'm scared I'll lose years of my writing and 'work'. Not paid work by any means, just a beloved record of my life and thoughts which is priceless to me.
|^Heaven forbid I post a pictureless post. So here's Chandler: Apple of my eye.|
Has anyone else moved from Blogger to their own URL? Any tips on how you did it and what worked? I almost finish it every single time only to chicken out at the end - the URL is secure and I own it. Just how did your transfer go?
My main questions are:
1) Did your export go smoothly?
2) Were you able to update your blog easily from the new URL?
Any and all tips appreciated!
