I’m in the process of transferring this entire blog from Blogger to my own domain running WordPress. This is my first post to WordPress directly.
For practice, I’ve done it once before, transferring my Bills’ site’s blog.
Now I’m just waiting for the last part, switching the dns entry that pointed blog.mattsoreco.com to blogger. Once this change is done, I have a rewrite rule in my .htaccess file to forward blog.mattsoreco.com to mattsoreco.com and maintain the rest of the url parameters.
I left this off my last post about “finishing” this summer. I’ve wanted to transfer my sites (personal site and blog) to one whole site for some time. Now it’s done.
I know there will be some mopping up afterwards as not all the urls will match up exactly.
All and all it was pretty painless–assuming I’m not missing anything.
Next step is to freshen up the design and format. Which I must finish by the end of summer. And of course tinker around with plugins and other customizations.
This is good practice as we might move my company’s blog from WordPress.com to a more customizable installation.
