I have been inactive for a couple of days because…I moved to a self-hosted site!

I finally got my new URL (www.ninasogue.com) and I feel really happy about it.

Now that I’m back, I can’t wait to share what has been going on for the past few days. It has been a very eventful week, so watch out for my posts!

So while I explore this new hosted site, do you have any tips for me? Let me know in the comments. 😉

Enjoy life. Cheers!

    That is so nice! Congratulations on your self-hosted blog. For those interested, I actually have a friend who does my blog’s web-hosting. I’m really happy with the service as they provide good technical support apart from the web-host services. They also do free SEO consultation.

    We are just talking about this last time. Welcome to the self hosted site world! Hehehe. Download plugins and make sure to make a child theme if you want to modify. 🙂 where did you get your domain and hosting? 🙂 there’s an amazing wordpress on ios you can use for posting. And oh, i suggest you get the YOAST SEO plugin. 🙂 If you have questions, feel free to shoot me a message.

    Don’t forger to wildcard redirect all your posts to the new sites, otherwise, you may lose a lot of visitors.

    • Nina Sogue

      Hi Dominic! Mostly, I’m still thinking of lifestyle as a niche. I’ll figure out the rest as I go through my blogging journey 🙂

    I had been thinking to get WordPress as well. I wonder how to do that and how much it would cost. I feel like I can get a better SEO once on WordPress. Congratulations on getting a new url!

    23 . Apr . 2016
    • Nina Sogue

      I’m not sure about SEO, but getting paid WP gives a lot of customization options 🙂

  17. Maine @MomsterTeacher

    Congrats!!! I remember when I moved–I lost some readers, tinkered with plug-ins, and had a lounge time deciding my blog’s design.

    That was 4 years ago. 🙂

    Good luck and enjoy wordpress.org!

    23 . Apr . 2016
    • Nina Sogue

      Thanks Maine! I hope to stay for good 🙂 What hosting are you on?

    Congratulations on your new home. Doesn’t it feel great to have a domain that’s all yours and to be self-hosted? I made a few mistakes in the past but I’m happy where I am now. 🙂

    22 . Apr . 2016
    • Nina Sogue

      Thanks, May! Where’s your current hosting? 🙂

    That is awesome! It is a huge step in the right direction. My only advice is not to worry too much if your numbers dip. They will get back to what they once were in a little bit but most people I talk to say it just takes a minute to get everything back to normal! I am excited for you!

    22 . Apr . 2016
    • Nina Sogue

      Thanks Alison! I actually panicked when my numbers did dip. I’m lucky now that it’s better now. 😀

    Very nice. We all feel proud when we have a professional-looking blog. Anyway, I hope you can give me advice because I wanted to do some tweaks to my blog layout/design so it looks more professional. I have no budget for it. Haha. I just need tutorials on how to alter my blog html so that I can do auto “read more” on my posts.

    22 . Apr . 2016
