I’m moving! (Although hopefully I’m not going anywhere…)

I’ve been blogging for almost a year now, and it’s something I’ve come to love. There’s things I’d love to do and share, and the wordpress.com site I currently use doesn’t offer me the kind of flexibility that I’d like. So I’ve decided to move to wordpress.org.

I’ve spent the morning doing my research, watching online videos and reading helpful blog posts until my brain nearly exploded. I nearly gave up, except I couldn’t face having to go through it all again another day. What I’ve discovered is that it should be simple and seamless and take a couple of magic clicks, and you’d never even know it has happened.

Except I have no idea what I’m doing. 

Not being one to let that kind of thing deter me, I’ve decided to plough on anyway. The more I read the more daunting it seems (downloading file splitters? That sounds scary), and I’m not feeling super confident that everything will transfer in the way I’d hoped. In fact, I think I might lose my images. As long as I don’t lose everything : / I’m just hopeful that if it all goes terribly wrong, I can pay one of the tech experts to make it all better for me.

So I wanted to say goodbye, and hopefully see you on the other side! My website address will remain the same (www.treadingmyownpath.com) so you should be able to find me.

Fingers crossed…

…and see you soon!

    • You know what, I have absolutely no idea! The transfer has all gone through now, so maybe you can tell me?! The email sign up box is still there but I’m really not quite sure!

    • Hmm, an update for you! It seem WordPress deleted all my followers! I’m sure when as when I transferred they were still there, but I was talking to a friend yesterday and he was asking what happened to the blog – he hadn’t received any notifications for ages. So I checked and yep – all gone! So you may need to resubscribe to follow – I hope you still want to!!! : )

    • Still finding my feet it seems. I don’t like that somehow all my followers were deleted and I don’t that it took m almost 2 months to figure that out! : (

  1. I did this a few months back and I found it quite stressful but really glad I did it in the end. Good luck with it :-)

    • I have a quick question for you – did you have any problems with WordPress deleting all your followers? Because I’ve noticed that all of mine were deleted at some point after I transferred : (
