Look who’s web savvy!

August 24th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

After two months of blogging at thedailylindsey.wordpress.com I’ve decided to take the next step. And I’m happy to report it’s gone quite smoothly.

Wooohoo!  I’ve converted my wordpress.com blog over to a hosted domain site powered by wordpress.org. Man, if I can do it, ANYONE CAN. I went ahead and bought up the domain and a host through GoDaddy.com. (Got an excellent 20 percent discount while researching promo codes. Took my $92 tab down to $75.)

The web site interface is going to take some time to get used to. I had to write down my log-ins and passwords because it asked me to create about four new accounts for the different services I’ve bought. Each password has different requirements before it’s accepted.

I couldn’t have done it without the well-written instructions that I came across while googling many of my questions. Maggie, over at maggiewilliamswanderer.com, has come up with this very succinct and easy to understand walk through of the process. Check it out if you’re in the same boat that I was trying to navigate.

    Congrats Lindsey,

    I’m glad that was of help to someone and thanks for the kind words. I checked out your site and liked it and bookmarked it.

    Cheers,
    Maggie

    Thanks! That made my day! Now on to even more complicated things, learning css/html/maybe flash? yikes!
