Notes from the past…

A new beginning

7 Comments

Or a new host, at least!

I am in the process of moving this WordPress.com blog to a WordPress.org blog at a hosted site, so please bear with me. The blog itself is moved and functioning quite well, but my bluebonnetcountry.com domain name isn’t active just yet, should be 24-48 hrs from last night (soon, I hope!).

I haven’t gotten all of the personalization completed, yet. But I do have a new header. I am also looking at new themes, although at this point MistyLook is still the best!

And about the WordPress.org Famous Five Minute Installation…It only took me 3 1/2 hours and 3 44oz Sonic Dr Peppers to get this beast off the ground! I’m really glad that I don’t smoke

  1. Hi Ruth and thanks for the info you sent me about hosting! PhpGedView sounds very interesting, but for now at least, I think I’ll stick to WordPress.com.

    I haven’t been blogging much lately, as I’m thinking I will buy a new computer come October and am spending much time on the Microsoft site gawking at Windows Vista :)…I know, it has its drawbacks, they say, but I am determined to love it! After all, I’m still sitting here with Windows 98!

  2. Ruth – thought I’d lost you – but I found you again! Good luck with the .org site!

  3. Thanks so much, Denise! It’s good to know that I have a comrad-in-arms!
    After the initial headache of getting this beast installed and actually functioning, things have gone pretty smoothly. Just some tweeking left to do.
    Eventually, I want to install PhpGedView and link it to a page here. I might need to cry on your shoulder about that, if that would be ok. I’ll bring my own Kleenex!

  4. You look mahrvelous, darling! I love the photo.

    I’m a WordPress.org girl too. If there’s anything I can do to help, just let me know.

  5. Just curious, from what site do you purchase your domain name, and what web host did you decide to go with? I may move over to self-hosting one day myself, so I’m wondering what’s the best way to go, especially with domain names.

  6. Thanks, Val!
    I’m glad you were able to find me again!

  7. Wow, looks great! Love the new header image! Good luck with the move!

    Val
