Self Hosted Blogging

The other day I mentioned in a post that I was considering moving my blog to a self hosted site. Which I have decided that I will for sure be doing…Complete with name change too. A self-hosted blog is a webpage in which I will have complete control over in pretty much every aspect (right now I’m just borrowing space on blogger’s server…When I move I won’t have to worry about that anymore)….I won’t be at the mercy of or Blogger anymore. I won’t have to worry about blogger deleting my blog for grins and giggle’s again…I won’t be at the mercy of anyone really design wise anymore. I will have my own little space of the internet to do my thing on. To be honest, I can hardly wait to get started. I’ve already decided what my new name is going to be and I’m in the process of trying to find a web designer and get the process rolling. I hope my little explanation was helpful.

I’ve been thinking about making this change for months now. I’ve been weighing the pro’s and con’s to making this big of a move and I think that it’s time for me to take a leap of faith. As much as I’ve enjoyed everyone here that I’ve met on blogger I realize that when I make my big move that not everyone will make the move with me. For those who don’t….It’s been a pleasure. I hope to see you around the bloggy world.


Here is an example of a self-hosted blog – The Pioneer Woman

    Well keep us posted!! When you do that will we not be able to follow because you won’t be in Blogger??

  2. I’m not sure what a self hosted blog means…

  3. We can still follow. I follow Pioneer Woman. I just never read her anymore.

    The Texas Woman

  4. OK. That makes sense. I have a bloggy friend who has her own blog with her own url and everything. I haven’t been able to get her added to my blogroll yet so I don’t get the updates but every time she comments on my blog I go to her blog and I end up checking in with her a couple of times a week. It will probably be a lot of fun to design your own blog!

  5. Oh those cowboy butts. MMMMMMMMMM. Keep us posted about where you go so we can still stalk you!

  6. Let us all know when you move!

  7. youre such a brave girl.. hope its all as easy as pie!
