Making the Move from Paid WordPress to Self-Hosted

Welcome to my first of a four-part post series on my move from Paid Wordpress to Self-Hosted! These posts will discuss my lessons learned and tips you can use (even on Free Wordpress!) to improve your website.

Paid WP vs. Self-Hosted | How I Went Self-Hosted | Proper Use of Headers | SEO for Book Bloggers

At the end of June I made the scary leap to self-hosted for my blog, and I was surprised how easy moving to self-hosted from paid Wordpress was! I’d heard horror stories from friends who broke their site and spent weekends fixing it, which was the main reason I didn’t go self-hosted last year when I decided to buy a domain.

If you are a blogger considering making the move to self-hosted from Wordpress (either free or paid), this guide is for you! I will go over the actual steps I took, how long of a process it is, and a couple of things I’ve learned since. This is a long post, but it should answer all of your questions!

Reading Around the Globe: Luci in The Netherlands

“My libraries have quite some books, but they don’t get new ones very often. Since most of the libraries are Dutch and have mostly Dutch books, I’d have to wait till a book is translated, published here, and then after a year or so, its available in the library.”
