Website Change

Well, today I took the plunge. I pointed my domain to my WordPress blog. I had been using Wix for my website, and if you like flash sites, it was a pretty good one. But it was getting really hard to maintain both the site and the blog. I didn’t even have my last two books on the site. One of the reasons I kept it was because of the contact form. I didn’t think WordPress had a contact form for a blog site (as opposed to a hosted WordPress site where you can download contact form plug-ins). But the contact form was right there on the upload/insert area. Duh me! Another upside of doing this…Wix was $49 to use your domain and WordPress was $12. Per year. That’s a no brainer. Now I’m just waiting for the name server change to go into effect so I can go into WordPress and add my domain. This can take 2-3 days. (I never understood that.)

The next step is to create my static page as advised by Kait and Susan. I hope making the static page won’t interfere with my blog subscriptions or anything. I don’t think it will. But with my luck, something will go wrong. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

I hope consolidating my blog and website will streamline things a little for me. I think WordPress is easier to manage, too. I think this was the right decision. (Wix didn’t think so, LOL.)
