That was a sigh of relief. I am relieved. I am beyond relieved. I have been in the process of moving my blog since October of this year. Well, I decided in October that I would move it (to WordPress and to a new server). From that time till now, I have been trying to figure out how to do what, and when to do it. I did not even know how to start.
Finally, I talked to my friend. I don’t know if he wants his name mentioned, and I forgot to ask him, so let’s call him Powered-By-Google (inside joke). When I mentioned it to him, I was merely telling him as gist, but he offered his services (and yes, I have his contact, if you need him). Say what?!
He told me what to do first: pick a theme. That, in itself, was work. Prior to that, Aribaba had asked me if I had picked a theme, and I answered casually, “Oh, no. I’ll do that later.” I was thinking, theme? Psht, please! I’ll pick one in a minute with both eyes closed. Yea … not! So many options. So many ways to spend my money. So many ways to screw up. Each one I found had an issue. Finally, I came across this one, and I immediately knew it was the one.
It didn’t look exactly this way —no, not at all. But I told Powered-By-Google everything he had to add and take out. Sometimes, I was on the phone with him for several hours, adding and subtracting, changing and updating, and then changing some more. I cannot tell you how many times I changed my mind. Thank God we had a test blog. And he never complained.
Finally, I went to his house on Friday, stole him from his family – without first seeking their permission – ate his food, drank his ice tea, ate his daughter’s yogurt, and slept in his house. No, he does not offer these services (of food and shelter to all his clients!). I robbed him of his weekend. He was so passionate about what he was doing. I, on the other hand, was dazed. He kept referring to plug-ins and web pages as guys. So he’d say something like, “I don’t know why this guy is not doing what I want him to do…” or “Look at what this guy caused…” And I’d always respond with something like, “This guy sef!”
Long and short of the story, my blog has moved. To God be the glory. I’m really so grateful to God for a perfect move. You may notice that certain tabs above like Lyrics & Vera, Spotlight, and VP [Verastic Person] don’t have anything underneath them. Fear not. They’re coming soon to a Verastically Livin’ blog near you. I hope you’ll enjoy this blog as much as I am.
Thank you for your support. Now, let the blogging fever begin (way to take the pressure off myself)
