Hello lovely followers!
I’m coming to you today with a bit of a major announcement regarding the future of my blog, Girl in the Pages (girlinthepages.com).
I’m going to be moving from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress.org site.
My URL (girlinthepages.com) will stay the same!
I’ve loved my time at wordpress.com for the past 15 months book blogging and it’s helped me really grow my audience and content. It was a fantastic place to start my blog. At this time I feel like I’m ready to move to wordpress.org where I have more control over customizing my blog, using plug-ins, etc. It was a bit of a nerve-wracking decision but I’m so excited for the next chapter in my blogging experience!
The migration will take place tomorrow, April 21, 2015. My URL will still stay the same! The redirection should be seamless. I will then be migrating over all of my followers so that my posts will still appear in your wordpress.com reader, and I will still see yours in the reader as well! If you follow me via email, you will still get email updates every time I post. I will still be just as present in the community, just blogging from a different platform. 🙂
How will this impact you?
It shouldn’t impact your following of girlinthepages.com as all! It should be a seamless transition! Once I migrate my posts should continue to appear in your reader! I will be redirecting this site to my new one as well, so readers will be automatically redirected to my new site. If you’d like to you can follow me on Bloglovin’ as well, as my Bloglovin’ profile should redirect seamlessly too. I’ll still continue following all of the same blogs as well! I’ll also be hosting a giveaway soon after my move to celebrate, so be sure you’re following to enter! You can also enter my current giveawy for an ARC of Emmy & Oliver here).
I can’t wait to engage with you all from my new blogging platform and bring you even better content! I hope you’ll continue to visit me at my new site 🙂 Please let me know if you have any questions!
