Dear Readers: You’ll notice several abrupt style changes to the AnnCavittFisher blog over the next week as I move my website from WordPress.com over to Bluehost.
What you’ll see:
- I normally use a magazine style WordPress theme, which makes it much easier for readers to see a variety of articles on the home page of my site.
- However, to initiate the move, the whole site will change to a very simple, classic blog theme where all of the articles will appear in the classic blog reverse order style. You may see this for several days.
- Once WordPress has assisted me with the move, I will install a new magazine theme, but things may look a little odd (poor image sizes relative to the columns of text), until I go through and tweak layout throughout the site.
- This will take a week or more, since there are now well over 100 pages of articles!
Why move my site? WordPress.com has been a wonderful home for me for the first 2.5 years of blog life. The support team has been helpful, and the WordPress community has been a great place to be. However, as I move into making my blog my livelihood, I need additional freedom and functionality that I can’t get within the WordPress.com space. I’ll still be running a WordPress theme though — to my mind, this is far and away the best content management system on the internet.
So, pardon my mess! I’ve got a little heavy lifting to do before everything is back in order 🙂 .
