You may have noticed that I was inactive for a few weeks on my old blog, and I apologize for that. I have not abandoned my blog at all – quite the opposite! I was on vacation for a week, down at the beach in Ocean City, Maryland and then I had a family wedding to attend. It was nice to take some time off from work again and the weather was really nice most days. But I’ve also been really busy behind the scenes with my blog.
Just before leaving for vacation I went ahead and purchased a domain name as well as hosting and decided to migrate my blog to WordPress. After experimenting with blogger I decided that I’ve been committed enough to this that it was time for an upgrade which would allow me more customization and features. I also think it looks much nicer to have an actual domain name as opposed to .blogspot.com. And I figured while I was at it I might as well get actual hosting while I’m at it, right?
Importing all of my posts and comments from Blogger was actually pretty seamless, but I’ve had to go and make some minor edits to most posts and I’m still working on that. There was also a lot of research to do on some basic plugins and picking a decent theme. I’m still not sure if I’m content with that!
What do you think of my new blog so far? Any suggestions or tips on working with WordPress?
