Years ago I used Blogger.com as my main blogging platform. All though I loved it at the time… eventually I started to have problems with it and it wasn’t meeting the needs I had to run a successful blog and design business. Having a self-hosted WordPress blog/site made everything so much easier.
I often get emails on how to move a blog from wordpress.com (or blogger.com) to a self-hosted WordPress.org site. It’s been a really long time since I moved my own site so I could not even begin to tell you where to start.
Yes, there are many awesome tutorials on the web that will show you how to do this yourself (and it will save you some money too) but there are many people that don’t have the time or they are not super comfortable using the web to tackle this on their own.
If you are one of those and need help or just want to hire someone to do it all for you… I have a solution for you. Yay, woot! Am I right?! Who has time for that?
I would like to introduce you to the amazing Bren from Virtual Bren. We met online a few months ago but I think she may have been purchasing my themes way before that 😉 Anywho, we started talking and she wanted to know how she could help me with my business. So I mentioned you guys and how many of you are looking for help on moving your site over to WordPress.org. Her words “I would definitely be game.” What I love about Bren is her eagerness to help others and her positive attitude towards everything. The next day I sent one of my customers to Bren because she was having trouble migrating her site herself. Here is Laura’s testimonial:
I want to thank Bren with HUGE gratitude! She helped me transfer my WordPress.com posts/information to my new WordPress.org site. If anyone has ever tried to do this, I’m certain you know that although it seems like ‘simple steps’ it isn’t always the case. After several attempts (only to have the data not sync with the latest date posts) and even after contacting WP for assistance, Bren was able to get it done for me in no time. Her services and sincere friendliness made my day and made my site better. I will definitely be hiring her for help on the site again and HIGHLY RECOMMEND her services to everyone! Quick response and turn-around (even though I wasn’t expecting it). Thank you again Virtual Bren!
