Hello all, it’s been a while since my last post here, mainly because OctPoWrMo ended, but also because I’ve been busy with various other projects.
I’ve transferred my photography blog Beautiful Pictures from Blogger to WordPress.com and covered all the SEO business with that (registering it with Bing and Google for starters – I also did that for this blog as I hadn’t bothered previously). I’m also transferring my domain/hosting provider from iPage Inc (oh dear, the downtime, the error messages, the constantly slow server – etc) to Bluehost for WordPress, which is supposed to be great. We’ll see. This has meant my main site/my author site – Shah Wharton’s WordsinSync is showing up as a Bluehost Error page instead of the website. I await iPage’s release of my domain while biting my nails and chewing my tongue in frustration, as day two of this ticks by. *Grr!*
Also, you know when hosting companies say things like – One-Click transfer and We’ll do everything for you? Well, I’ve been clicking away for two days and no tomato! What’s all that about? More unnerving, now I’ve learned I may even lose files during the transfer (that I have to carry out) and that the transfer (I have to carry out) itself requires ME to upload the website and transfer it MYSELF? When did I get that IT degree, I’m sure it was a Psychology degree, which bears no relation or help in these circumstances?
*Cough* I’m a writer who blogs. Give me a break.
Anyone who can help with this farce would win BBF status with me for life. Yes, I’m that cheap. Head, wall and violent contact springs to mind.
Of course, in between all this I’m still slogging at book two in The Supes Series – Finding Luna for NaNoWriMo, which overwhelms every November, lets face it. I’m at around 48k so will ‘Win’ again this year. Hurrah. 😀 In case you don’t already know (because you’re new to me, my writing or live on the moon) book 1 will be published (by hook or by crook) December 21st 2012 in time for Christmas. It is presently with the editor, who’s been sending chunks for approval throughout this month – so yes, I’ve been a busy bunny this month and long for it all to be over.
As always, love to hear from y’all. X
