I had to. I just had this feeling things weren’t working out. The feeling has been gnawing at me for a while now. I needed to own it 100% and I wasn’t.
Don’t worry I’m not talking about my marriage. That is still going strong!
I’m talking about my relationship with Blogger. I ended it. I was hearing so many horror stories about Blogger doing whatever they wanted to your blog. Why? Because they could.
After months and months of contemplating switching to WordPress I finally did it. I was trying to do-it-myself for a while. I purchased hosting through BlueHost and the Genesis Framework, but I hit a road block. After a while I just didn’t know what to do. At all.
Luckily, Lisette came to my rescue. She knew I didn’t want her typical migration package. I like to do things myself, but I couldn’t do it all. I designed my blog and wanted to keep my design. I worked on it for a long time and wasn’t ready to change it. I just made it less than a month ago! Plus, I was fully capable of transferring my own sidebar and header. I wasn’t capable of fixing coding errors and correctly transferring all of my posts. A lot of my comments didn’t transfer over but that is an issue with Disqus not Lisette. She even fixed the errors being received from my Pinterest traffic.
Lisette was such a pleasure to work with. She texted with me throughout the whole process letting me know what she was doing and why. Hallelujah! Now I truly own my own content. If you are thinking about transferring to WordPress, I highly suggest hiring Lisette for your migration needs.
I feel like a new blogging fire is lit within me. I have more motivation for blogging, and am loving all the plugins that come with WordPress.
