I have always been toying with the idea of getting my own domain name. Because, technically speaking, if one day, WordPress decides to terminate my account with them, all my writings, pictures, videos which I have posted since 2002 (Yes… I have been blogging for 14 years! Albeit on and off though… I was one of the pioneer bloggers who have gone nowhere. LOL!) will be gone!
Excuses, procrastination, everything that you can think of. Finally, I have done it! I have got myself a domain, a webhost and migrated the whole website over. Believe me, the migration was as bad as moving a house where you have lived in for last 12 years. It was PAINFUL. Maybe because I was very cheapo, I did everything myself and refused to pay a fee to migrate the information. It took me one whole day! It’s also because I am terribly noob at the technology. So instead of paying movers, I figuratively moved my “furniture”, “boxes”, “belongings” all by myself (and I’m only 5 feet tall… ).
So my new “house” is ready (well, kind of…) with the bare walls. I’ll maneuver myself through the tech part to beautify it later. So, yes, the new site works but just not too awesome looking (with my noob skills it’ll at most be so-so lah!) unless I pay a pro to jazz it up. Then again, that wouldn’t be me anymore. Let’s look beyond the physical beauty and go for the content. 😜
