Well, I’ve been toying with the idea for some time now and I’ve finally decided to move my WordPress.com blog over to a self-hosted WordPress.org version of itself. Similar to when I left VOX.com, all it took was a simple export and import and now the new steelie.net is virtually a carbon copy of this one (now http://steelie.wordpress.com). All posts, pages, media, and comments — everything really — imported seamlessly. 🙂
Unfortunately, all my visitor stats were reset in the transfer, and all WordPress branded shortlinks (wp.me…) still link back to the “.com” site. Other than those couple of hiccups, we’re sittin’ pretty.
So, I’m not entirely sure how it works, not that I expect everyone to follow me over the new steelie.net but “following” me through WordPress.com won’t work anymore and your RSS feed settings might get a bit buggered. I guess what I’m trying to say is… if anyone is still interested in hearing what I have to say, I’ve moved… sort of.
Hope to see y’all on the flip-side.
