WordPress.com to WordPress.org – Help, please!

June 17, 2011

Hi fantastic blogging world!

I’m ready to switch my blog from free-templated-but-slightly-limited WordPress.com to the fantastic-need-to-know-more-html-than-I-do world of WordPress.org.

If you’ve done this with your blog, I’d love to know…
1. If you did it yourself and if you’re for hire!
2. If you did it yourself and can you tell me how – I know enough to be dangerous, but not good. I can do anything once someone shows me!
3. If you did it but hired someone – who and where you happy with them?

I know I’ll be happy once it’s done, but it seems like a ginormous mountain in front of me right now. Advice, tips, commentary, anecdotes, and anything remotely helpful is appreciated!

Thanks loves!

      Oooh, thanks, Lauren! I’m not sure how much help I need yet, but good to know I can send some questions your way! If I need major help, I’ll send a request to your hubby and see if he can help! Thanks!
