I am just getting used to my new home here at my first ever self-hosted site. I have been nudged for a few months now by folks like Stan @pushingsocial to buy my own domain and move my blog over here, but truth be told, I just found this whole concept to be extremely intimidating.
When I changed my Twitter handle from @RLMadMan to @MargieClayman, I realized that my WordPress.com blog site, which was RealLifeMadMan.wordpress.com, no longer made sense with my new branding initiative. It seemed like all of the signs were pointing me in the direction of building my own site at my own domain.
Last night I went through the process, which was a bit tricky at times, and a bit nerve-wracking at other times. In trying to do the research, there wasn’t one single source that answered a lot of my questions, so I decided to use my experience and create a MyBrainshark tutorial on how to migrate a blog from WordPress.com to a self-hosted site using WordPress.org software. I hope you find it helpful. Let me know what you think!
Thanks for popping by my new home! I think I’ll be staying here for awhile.
