Changes to our blog: making the leap to self hosted
In case you’ve been wondering what happened to Hundredgivers blog we’ve made a few changes…
This summer I had some help revamping my blog. I was hosting it with WordPress.com but running into limitations. To achieve a new vision – combining my blog with website and adding some new features – I made the big leap over to the self-hosted version, WordPress.org. I wanted to see if I could do the migration to self-hosted myself and after many hours and a steep learning curve I did it – but that’s another story… I also ended up bringing in a Web professional to redesign and make it pretty (thanks Erik!).
I’m afraid in the process of migrating to WordPress.org and revamping the new blog, we may have confused a few of Hundredgivers WordPress.com subscribers. Have you wondered where the blog has gone? You’ll now find us at Hundredgivers.org.
It turns out that WordPress.com is happy to port over followers to the self-hosted version but I don’t have access to your emails (although I found a few on your blogs – thanks). I’d really like to keep in touch with everyone and combine old friends with new friends into one convenient email system (MailChimp) and just send one email notification with each new post (if you opt in). In order to do this I’d like to ask you a favor. Would you please subscribe with your email to Hundredgivers blog?
You’ll find the “subscribe” box here or on the right column of the blog…
Btw, the new blog and website is still in process with more pages to come but in the meantime if you get a moment, please let me know what you think of the new layout!
Thanks for keeping in touch!
