Going Self Hosted!

Well, this is it. My last post until Monday 16th November!

Going Self Hosted!
As a lot of you will know (due to me banging on and on about it!) I'm finally making the jump to self hosted. I know, I must be crazy!

I have debated it for a while, and I keep backing out because I know nothing about Word Press, and not much about HTML, programming or building a website. This time I'm not backing out.

When I started this blog, I went in completely blind. I had no idea what blogging entailed and had no idea about anything really. And here I am, 8 months later. I have learned so much that I thought I would never learn. Because when it's happening, you sink or swim, so I had to learn.

So I'm making the jump with the same attitude. It'll work because it has to. I will learn because I have to.

The worst thing that can happen (famous last words!) is that I won't be able to successfully import all of the posts from here. If that happens, I will cry! Seriously though, I've started from scratch once and I can do it again.

So I make the jump with an attitude of que sera sera! Part of me is terrified it goes horribly wrong, but the bigger part of me is so excited. It feels like the right time to make the jump.

So to everyone who has followed my journey so far, thank you, and I hope you will make the jump with me. Prepare for a re-launch next Monday with a whole new design and lots to come! I'll still be around on Twitter if anyone wants to say hello or send virtual wine :)

See you on the other side!

    I am too scared to make the jump. I don't understand Wordpress at all.
