I had a ton of fun building a website for a friend this weekend and realized I have the skills to build myself exactly the kind of blog I want. So for the next few days, things might get a little crazy.
Long term, this blog will stay up, but the main url will redirect to jessicadickinsongoodman.com, my lovely new domain which I am still grooming. I’ll do a final “Goodbye to WordPress.com, Hello to Self-Hosting!” post with all of the relevant links.
In case you’re interested, I registered my domain with NameCheap because they publicly opposed SOPA, donate to EFF and were recommended by LifeHacker, chose LaughingSquid for hosting because they were recommended by WordPress and I was already following them on Twitter, where they are adorable. I’ll be staying with WordPress for my CMS.
Thank you for your patience during the move.

I’m looking forward to your self-hosting/migrating WordPress post! Because I upgraded to WordPress Pro, thinking it would let me upload my own themes, but alas this is not the case. 🙁
It is sad 🙁
