I Have FINALLY Moved the Journey to WordPress Self Hosted!


Happy Thursday everyone!

As you can see, the layout of the site looks a little different today.

The reason?

I finally set aside all of my excuses and have moved My Personal Finance Journey from Blogger (where I’ve been for 3+ years) to WordPress Self Hosted. I’m using the Genesis Framework with the News Child Theme and very much like it so far!

Anyhow, this is just a quick post to humbly request that you bare with me for a few days while I get the kinks worked out on the new hosting platform. After that, I expect to be back in full force with a more reader-friendly platform that gives all of us better functionality.

How about you all? What blogging platform do you use?

If you’re on WordPress, what theme do you use?

Talk to you soon!

  1. I’m so glad that you finally made the switch! 🙂

  2. Congrats on the switch! The site looks good. I just moved over to self-hosted wordpress about a month ago, and after a rough couple of days it’s worked out great.

  3. Congrats it looks great!

    • Thanks Pauline! It’s amazing how many spam comments I’m getting with WordPress compared to when I used Intense Debate.

      What plugin do you recommend to control some that? Akismet?

  4. Congratz Jacob. The theme is simple and looking cool 🙂 I am still stucked in blogger, will do the transition to wordpress soon.

  5. I’m surprised you were able to stick it out. I went two months on blogspot before the limited widget support, and the forced integration with Google+ really got to me and convinced me to head to WordPress.org
