Nearing the end of last year, I’d decided that — as my blog was 2 years old and I was in no hurry to stop writing— I was going to pay it a bit more attention and give it a makeover. I was finally ta-daaah ‘going self hosted’!
I’d decided to move on from a free WordPress blog to a self-hosted site… which was pretty easy to arrange as the lovely guys at IFDNRG, who host my work websites, have agreed to host my new blog too. I told then which domain name I wanted and hey presto — up and running before I knew it.
The look and feel was a slightly different matter! Initially, I was going to keep the same theme as before but in light of a new year (once a designer, always a designer) I concluded that it was time for a brand new look!
Out with the old!
After a lot bit of trial and error and swearing, I finally managed to work out how to use the back-end of my new theme! A lot of faffing ensued but FINALLY I have a blog that I’m happy with the look of! *high five to that*
Hopefully this going self hosted and the new look for my blog will inspire me to write more (or as much as I can with a marriage, twins, a home and a business to keep on top of!). It almost feels like having a brand new diary for 2015!
A lovely fresh feel to welcome in the new year.
Bring it on.
