Monkey Bread

I did it! I made the move from Blogger to WordPress with some help from Blogelina. Honestly, I was scared out of my mind about losing my blog, posts, followers, comments… pretty much losing anything since my blog is so dear to me. I mean, it’s five years and 500 posts of my life!

Thank goodness for tech savvy people like Blogelina. She imported everything. I just had to fix the aesthetics since I couldn’t transfer my template over from Blogger to WordPress. She did the heavy lifting and I picked up what she dropped. Not only that, but she was constantly in contact, responded to emails right away, and assured my rapidly beating heart that it was going to be okay.

I had been contemplating moving to WordPress for quite some time now. I was never able to get that thought out of my mind. I knew that the longer I waited, the more complicated the migration process would become.

Don’t get me wrong, blogger wasn’t something I all of a sudden started hating. It wasn’t even bad; I just outgrew it. I needed to be able to do more with my blog. I was frustrated with figuring out HTML to create add ons and little perks. I am not a tech savvy girl.

Compared to Blogger, WordPress (self hosted) is no walk in the park. I have complete control over everything, which means I also have to make sure the site runs smoothly on my own. There’s no one here to fix my bugs. I’ve gotta Google and do it myself.

That’s scary.

So thanks for bearing with me as I slowly learn how to take the reigns. It’s a work in progress, but isn’t it always? A blog is never finished.

I’m pretty sure I’ve changed my layout every year. Have you checked out my latest? I couldn’t be happier! It was a forced change, but a welcomed one. Who says change is a bad thing?

Remember the first time I tried to make monkey bread and it didn’t turn out so hot? Well, I decided to give it another shot. This time, I used mini loaf pans and smaller balls of dough to make sure that they would cook all the way through. I wasn’t going to have another kitchen failure like the first time, especially when the outside of the bread looks so enticing!

This monkey bread cooked all the way and didn’t leave me crying. Thank goodness! Cinnamon sugar desserts can do no wrong.

    Your blog looks great! I am curious, do you like wordpress better than blogger? I have been curious about switching to my own domain for a while, but am absolutely terrified of losing my content. I would love your advice!

      hi! wordpress is definitely harder to get the hang of than blogger, but yes, i LOVE the switch so far and am glad i took the dive and did it. there are lots of things that i needed help fixing or getting the hang of, but the wordpress community is extremely helpful in the forums. they can help you solve any problem and answer any question you have! i would recommend switching to your own domain ASAP.

      as for losing my content, that was my biggest fear as well since i had over 500 posts and over 5000 comments. i did my research and decided to hire a pro to do it for me since i’m a newbie and don’t trust myself with html goods. i can hold my own, but i’m not very tech savvy. my research led me to blogelina, which did everything for me! she transferred everything, moved my RSS feed so i wouldn’t lose any readers, transferred my domain name, AND provided hosting for a year. all of that cost me just under 90 bucks, which i think is well worth it. i’d highly recommend her if you need someone to transfer everything for you and aren’t very comfortable with domain hosting.

      best of luck!!
