Today’s post is a little random, but I got a lot of questions about this and I thought I could share how I did it. First, I will start by telling you why. Last month, I purchased www.novelstyleblog.com, but did not plan on working on it till the second anniversary of my blog. Bad idea… this started to mess with my blog stats and image, so I had to move and it had to be done asap. I made this decision January 1st! great way to start the year!!!
Question was: How to do it? I checked etsy, and thought about going with one that did it for me… but they said it would take around 4 weeks. Then I contacted a friend that has a beautiful website, to check if she did it or who did it… and she sent me this link (here). Sadly, she was also busy and couldn’t do it for me… but with the link she sent, she made it look easy. And she was still there for questions if I messed it up. So I was brave…and went for it! It took me longer to decide what I wanted and start, than the migration…this took just 2 days! And I was a little lazy in between…wen to bed when I was supposed to, watched my tv shows, etc etc.
Ok, here are the “steps”:
1. Purchase the domain / I went for GoDaddy…I also recommend bluehost
2. Get a web hosting / I recommend bluehost – get wordpress from their website builder section.
3. Get a theme or a custom design. I picked one from Bluchic, but there are a lot of other options on etsy, pick the one you love the most 🙂
4. Click here and do what he says!
5. Redirect your blogger website to your new domain. (here)
And that’s pretty much it!
Everything should be transferred automatically with step 4.
You might want to check your posts, maybe the space in between the paragraphs are gone… then you have to fix them manually! Just add <br> . Depending on the theme you get, you might also need to set up (manually) the featured images…
And that was pretty much it!!!
If you have any question, you can either write it down here or email me at: email@example.com
Hope it was helpful!!!
