Hey all, welcome to the new site. So this website was supposed to be mostly ready by today and it is…but it isn’t. There are plenty of missing features and the theme is nowhere near finished. That said, you can subscribe via RSS and email if you wish to the right. I decided to go ahead and pay for the domain redirect from the old blog so that the internet isn’t littered with broken links for a while, but it is extremely doubtful that I will pay for more than a year. Also, this post is part-testing to make sure that social-media sharing is working now.
What have I been up to today? Well, doing a job for my business. Fairly straightforward, if long, job working on fixing up a Win7 desktop and Win8 laptop (shudder). It consumed my day which I don’t mind but it did put a long delay on getting this site done in time :). But it’s great because I get paid today ^_^.
Initial thoughts on my move from WordPress.com to self-hosting:
Loving it. The export and import went out without a hitch as far as I can tell. The theme I’m running right now has so many more customization settings that I don’t know where to start. On top of that, there are plenty of themes that I liked in my initial scan through them yesterday. Which is more than I can say about the wordpress.com themes. The three I’ve used over the years were the only ones that caught my interest. And I went through most, if not all of them that were freely available at the time. So I’m extremely happy with the amount of choice that I have now. I’m not even sure if this is the theme I will ultimately go with, but I like it so far. Except for some of the default font choices, but I’ll fix them when I get the chance.
Before I go, I have to talk about who made the website possible. The website is being hosted by Moyer Multi Media LLC who I have to give a big shout out to for helping me get this website up. If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen his name crop up several times recently but I’ll mention it here again. Rick does audio, voiceovers, music production, video and photography editing, website creation, business logos and so much more. If you need something, anything created for your business, wedding, website or whatever else, he’s the guy to check out. Thanks Rick!
So, welcome to kingisaaclinksr.com ^_^. Here’s to a great year for A Paladin’s Blog. Thanks for making the transition over with me and I’ll see you in the next blog post!
