Lots has been happening here in San Diego in the last few weeks. One of the things we’ve been focused on is preparing to move our blog to a new hosting platform.
We’re not making drastic changes, but we are moving to a self-hosted site (WordPress.org instead of WordPress.com) in order to have more flexibility in the future. We have a few improvements planned too.
And, no, we didn’t figure this out all by ourselves. This time we got help. Dennis and Jeanette were recommended by Nina of Wheeling It fame (thanks Nina!) who mentioned that Dennis and Jeanette were headed to San Diego around the time we would be here.
And so we contacted them through their business website, Motorhome Office of Design and Technology and a plan was hatched. Dennis and Jeanette have been quite generous with their time and their pricing, are great people and have taught us tons about blogs and social media in a short time.
They’re funny too! After all, they live in a 1978 Wanderlodge named the Cheddar Yeti 🙂
So, in the next few days we’ll be replacing the old blog with our new improved one. There is nothing you need to do if all goes according to plan. There may be a brief period where the site will be offline as the transition occurs.
Our http://www.islandgirlwalkabout.com URL will remain the same and we plan to transition all of our followers as well. So if you get updates via email you should continue to.
We’re excited about our changes, but if for some reason there is any problem, please bear with us. Gremlins can be found in the internets …
Hector has also been working on a new photography website that will allow us to sell some of his beautiful photographs. Stay tuned for more news about Hector’s photography website which is coming soon.
Hope you enjoy the improvements we’ve made. Send your comments!
Brenda, looking forward to your new blog home.
Sometimes change is good. I look forward to Hectors new photography blog as well 🙂
