Today I am officially on WordPress.org – a platform I have given a lot of thought of before jumping in. I have been blogging for more than 3 years on Tumblr and that space has undergone a lot of changes from domain names to layouts. In my search of a layout coder, I found someone who advised me to self-host and move my blog.
It is a big decision for me as I will lose all the comments made via disqus and the tags vs categories will be messed up. However, I want to blog more properly and include high resolution photos. My final layout design is in the works of the same person. For now, I have chosen a similar layout. My main goal is to have a wide content space for my photos.
I don’t know much about self-hosting. This is all new to me. Thankfully, Deann helped me transfer my domain to this host. I have loads of backlog posts from 2013. I have been so consumed by work that 2013 saw the least update in my Tumblr blog. This 2014, I resigned from my job and started towards a new career path – a future that is a big risk to me. When I have caught up on my backlogs, I will post about this new career path; although my friends on Facebook already knew about it.
I feel like have to write about it and reflect properly. I find it interesting to read my reflections from years ago in my blog and comparing myself to that past self. As much as I maintain this blog for the world to see, I also keep this online space as a journal of my journey, even if it is embarrassingly poor in content.
I shall strive to write better and post more regularly – although the latter would be quite a challenge to me. All visitor statistics will be reset and it’s quite a pity. C’est la vie! Wish me luck and welcome to my new home on the web!
