If you remember a couple of months ago, I wrote a post called What An Artist Can Learn from Watching the Evolution of My Blog.
In that post I told you all about how I first got started with WordPress. I mentioned how I started out not knowing anything about blogging.
And I also told you the reason I was telling you my story was so you could have an example to follow if you wanted to create your own great-looking website.
I let you in on some of my plans that I had for moving forward with my blog site. I told you that I was going to get hosting and make my own dot com blog.
Well, I finally did it
I went ahead and switched my blog over to a self-hosted site. And I finally decided to use Hostgator as my hosting company. Awesome, don't you think?
If you notice, my blog is now officially garybolyer.com. Yeah, baby, now I'm cooking!!!!
There are a lot of important reasons why you should want to do the same thing that I've done here. I will tell you all about these reasons later on in another blog.
But all you need to fully understand right now is that the investment to create your own sight just like this one is just about as close to nothing as you can get. In fact, all I've spent so far is about $36. Wild, huh?
I just wanted to let you know that my site will be going through some more changes as I purchase a premium theme and really ramp the whole thing up. So right now it's kind of like a newborn colt just trying to get on it's feet. It'll soon be up and running all over the place.
So let me know what you think of it so far in the comments below. Just remember, I still have a lot of work to do with the design and will be working on that in the days to come.
