Moving my blog

22Jun09

I did it. I made the decision to move my blog to my own website instead of writing on WordPress’ site. It was a hard decision to make, but I knew that I had to do it eventually, and now is as good a time as ever.

I wasn’t able to get the domain name renalive.com – it’s not being used, but someone owns it. I tried to contact them to see if they’d be willing to sell it, but alas, no response. I’ll be using renareich.com. It’s not as cute as Rena Live (I always really liked that name,) but it’s all mine.

I’m using GoDaddy for hosting. I’ve been surprisingly pleased with the service. It was really easy to set up and install. So far, that’s all I’ve done with it. I’ll need to export the database from renalive.wordpress.com and import it into the new database that’s been set up.

I’ve been debating about what theme to use. I’ve heard such wonderful things about Thesis, that I’m pretty sure that’s the way that I’m going to go. I’m doing a bit more research on what I need to do, and I hope to be up and running soon. The reason that I’m at all hestitant to use Thesis is that I like the idea of being able to just install something that looks pretty and not think about it. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to have to come up with a design, which scares the heck out of me. It’s a learning process.

  1. Hey Rena i saw your comment on the Social Media is Dead article and before i can comment to agree with you I decided to click on your name to see who you was…btw kewl blogging but the reason I decided to comment you is to tell you there is no need to change ur name because you can’t get the domain! Rena Live is effen Kewl forget the dot com. I just added look book as a friend to my twitter account a few weeks back and they r using .nu and having great success with it. I think its a sleeper right now and might take off in the future. The point is .nu sound kewl and it is also much shorter and you will be able to get your name Rena Live which you love. Good luck xoxo !! Oh wait one more think just try to find you on twitter had no luck if you are on there you can follow me if you like @ bedazler

      That’s interesting. I never thought about taking a different address like that. .nu is actually Niue – a small island in the South Pacific. It would cool to be from there. For now, at least, I think that I’ll stay with renareich.com. Thanks!
