Site Migration Update

Greetings from geekville.  Migrating my sight from being wordpress hosted to self hosted has been a learning experience.  I lost my existing theme and had to find another one.  I’ve had to quickly learn about widgets and plugins and gizmos and thingys.  I’ve been neck-deep in learning about slugs and SEO and all kinds of stuff that until recently I knew very little about. In a nutshell:

  • I’m not done, but it’s getting closer.
  • I still need to change my login information and website address on a bunch of different social media platforms.
  • I’m locked out of my new email address at the moment.  Hubby mentioned something about server issues.
  • I think I’ve settled on a theme
  • I desperately need a logo and a few other graphic elements.
  • Hubby absolutely rejected my idea of giving him his own email address.  Apparently being knowns as “the happy dad at wasn’t manly enough for him.
  • My kids are fascinated by the whole process.
  • I’m quite proud of figuring out how to add my twitter feed back into the mix.  it was my very first thing to figure out on my own.

By Monday I should have most of the behind the scenes stuff sorted out.  At that point I’ll be ready to face the world.

I have a new email address:  susan (at) thishappymom (dot) com

What are you doing this weekend?  Is it more fun that migrating a website?
