For the last year, I’ve been wanting to self host my blog. To move it from WordPress.com to WordPress.org. There are pros and cons to such a move, but in my view the pros win. But I’ve been stopped in my tracks each time I have tried to import my blog onto a self hosted server. A variety of error messages have left me at an impasse. I looked for solutions, but mostly found other people in the same boat, unable to cross to the other side.
There’s a lot to be said for perseverance though. I have solved the file issue that prevented me from switching. So switch I shall, probably tomorrow morning. All my posts, pages and comments will be swiftly transferred. The domain name will remain the same. The only thing that may break is the RSS feed. Hopefully it won’t. But if I disappear from any dynamic blog rolls or feed readers…well, you’ll know why that is.
So farewell from me on WordPress.com. I’ll see you on he other side shortly. Till then, one last photo. A misty day beside Weymouth harbour. I’ll have to bring my real camera back here one day.
