Regular readers of my blog will know that I have been a blogger for just over a year now. It has been a fabulous year, and I’ve learnt so much about blogging and social media and meet many people through the blogging world!
But now it’s time for a change. It’s time to take this blogging business seriously. It’s time to go….self-hosted!
It’s been hard to make the decision to go self-hosted – I know that it looks better for the blog but the technical issues scare me. I really have no idea what I’m doing. But I’ve read some great blog posts about how to do it and have started to make a bit more sense of it.
I’ll admit I’m still trying to get my head around plug-ins and jetpacks and stats but I’m hoping to learn along the way and make my blog better than ever.
However, to do this successfully, I need to take a blogging break. I’ve just returned to work and am still trying to get my head around that, so I thought I’d take a bit of a break to sort myself out and get organised.
So I’ll be having a blogging holiday for the month of August. I figure this is the best time to do it, as lots of people are going on holiday or have the kids at home for the summer break, so hopefully I won’t be missed too much and can come back soon refreshed with a new look! I may only be off for a few weeks, or I may be off for a whole month – it depends how quickly I learn about self-hosting, and how quickly I get the site up and running properly!
I’ll still be reading and commenting on my favourite blogs when I can – I won’t be able to join in with linkys but I’ll still be reading and supporting all my favourite blogs and I hope that I’ll be welcomed back with open arms when I’m ready to return.
Thank you for all the support for my little blog so far, have a lovely summer and I’ll be back bigger and (hopefully) better in the Autumn.
