Create With Joy Is Now On WordPress


For those of you who have been waiting for the official announcement, here it is:

Create With Joy is now on WordPress!

We completed our migration yesterday, June 20th, 2011, and I’m thrilled to report it was a huge success! Nitun, our migration specialist, successfully moved close to 400 posts, 9500 comments, and all of my photos to our new hosting company. He also successfully transferred all of my Google Friend Connect Followers, and all of my Feedburner RSS and e-mail subscribers.

In the upcoming days, I will share more details about the process and address your burning questions. In the meantime, I appreciate your patience as I explore my new home, familiarize myself with its new functionality, and test and tweak the site and settings so that everything works the way I want it too!

What do you think about my new digs? I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Please note that the clickable Comments field is now at the TOP of the post, under the post title! If you find anything is not working the way it should – or you have any questions you would like me to address – please, let me know!

Have a fabulous day!

  1. How exciting for you! I am sure you are thrilled. May I ask why the change as I still am learning so much and am wondering if this si something I need to think about in the future. Moving from blogger to wordpress.
    Thank you for your insight.

    Congrats! I tried to move to wordpress but alas, I had no luck and gave up. I love the semi-no look of the site too!

    Woof! Woof! Golden Congrats. It was a smooth transition … We can’t wait for you to share your experience. It seems that not only you have a new hosting site but also you purchased a design platform. What’s so neat from other bloggers that transition to wordpress is that we can see your new wordpress blog post on blogger reading list (I guess this is one difference having a design platform such as Catalyst). Anyway, we are very curious as we are so eager to move to wordpress. Looking forward on your follow-up post. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar n mom

    I love the new look! I am in the works of researching and getting ready to make the switch to WP myself. Can’t wait to read all your info in the next few posts. I would love to read any advice you have since I am a bit apprehensive about doing it.

  11. I’ve been thinking about making the move, but am a bit nervous about using WordPress. Am going to get my techy son to give me lessons while he is home over the summer.

  12. Mary Ann says:

    Just curious about why the move, what are differences and benefits, other than not having to deal with bloggers problems,

  13. Yvonne says:

    Love your site! I’m following you through the Friday 40 and Over hop! I’m still debating whether or not to make the switch. I really haven’t had too many blogger issues. Yours looks beautiful!

  14. Lara says:

    Congrats on the new move! You have a beautiful website – I like the Thoughts on Creativity section on your sidebar – very inspirational!

  15. Okay…so I really appreciate this as I see this down the road in our future….was it pretty simple or pretty traumatic? 🙂

    I am visiting from the Book Blogger Hop and this is a beautiful and inspirational site. I love your tagline. I am migrating myself from Blogger to WordPress and I am very slowly tackling it on my own. I keep wanting to write new content though on my new WordPress blog so its tough getting through it all! Well, back to hopping! Good night!
