You might have noticed that Lindy Loves has been inaccessible through www.lindyloves.co.uk recently this is because I have been transferring from Blogger to self hosted WordPress. What a
fun week and a half I have had!
You might have also noticed that there is also a new design. This is thanks to the lovely and very patient Jade over at www.jadeamarshalldesign.com. Keep your eyes peeled for a blog post about Jade’s fantastic work which will include a discount code exclusively for Lindy Loves readers!
Transferring from Blogger to WordPress is not for the faint hearted! I have been editing for almost two weeks (to be honest I’ve lost count) and it’s still not exactly how I want it – expect a few more changes! I have also lost count of the number of times I have broken things over the last couple of days. It was almost ready to go live on Monday until I deleted a very important file -oops, this resulted in me having to start over and a few 4am finishes. I’ve since learnt that if you back-up your site most mistakes can be rectified, you live and learn right?
If you are thinking of changing from Blogger to WordPress I’d say DON’T DO IT, just kidding! It is however paramount you have some knowledge of html/css or at the very least a book or guide that will help you when you get stuck.
I can’t say the move has been fun, in fact at some points it has been torture but it has most definitely been worth it. I will be boring you all very soon with some helpful guides/tutorials on lots of different blogging related, you will be able to find these posts on the Blogger A-Z page.
I hope you like the new site and layout, there will be a few more changes as I get the site exactly how I want it, there are so many plugins and gadgets that can be added, now the pressure is off the fun can begin. If you visit and you can’t get onto the site I’ve probably broken it but it will be back – I’ve learnt how to back things up! If you happen across any errors or problems when browsing please contact me and I will fix it as soon as possible.
I should be a website pro by the end of this!
