Spring cleaning has happened, change is in the air, and Piloting Paper Airplanes has a new home!
I’m very excited to have officially made the switch to a self–hosted blog home. *Happy dance* in my living room!
There are a few glitches I’m still working out, so bear with me.
- Only the last third of my posts transfered from pilotingpaperairplanes.wordpress.com.
This doesn’t really bother me, as I doubt many people will be looking that far back, but just know there are additional posts still housed at pilotingpaperairplanes.wordpress.com.
- The post comments did transfer over, but all except the most recent posts say “0 comments.” Not sure why.
- The URL mask doesn’t show link extensions for the pages or posts right now. The is top priority to fix (today, hopefully).
No one said go self–hosted is easy, right? I have enough web design skills to be really picky and customize my theme pretty drastically, which also means a higher chance of breaking things. It also means I’ve spent a lot of time on WordPress.org forums the last two weeks.
I lost most of my blog followers in this change, so please [re–]follow via RSS (icon in the header) or email (Follow button on bottom right). Much appreciated! This new .org page is still linked to my .com account, meaning I see my WordPress reader when I log in, so don’t worry – you haven’t lost a reader if I follow you via WP!
However, if you follow PPA via the WP reader, you’ll have to re–subscribe via email or rss. I won’t be updating pilotingpaperairplanes.wordpress.com anymore.
I think that’s all from the housekeeping side of things. Please let me know if you find any additional glitches. I imagine there are more I haven’t caught yet.
