This Blog has been fun… But Goodbye

I’ve had an amazing year and a half working on www.thoughtsfromjasmine.wordpress.com, but it’s about time that I said goodbye…

And HELLO TO MY NEW SELF HOSTED SITE!!!  I’ve been debating it for a long while, but now that I’m generating somewhat of an income through my blog, and I’m aware of what my future potential could be like, I’ve taken the plunge and gone self hosted.  

What does this mean?

It means I have a brand spanking new website that I have put money into and now completely own.  I have spent time customising and really getting what I want out of it, so it looks really pretty and fancy and I’m so happy and you should check it out because I’m incredibly hyped.  (PS. I’m posting this post to both of my blog sites, so if you’re already on the self hosted site, congrats!  It’s pretty, isn’t it?)

So… How do I find your site now?

If you were already following my blog, you have nothing to worry about!  All my followers have been transferred over to the new site, so congrats, you should already be reading this off of it!  If you’re reading this off of my old site, head over to www.thoughtsfromjasmine.co.uk because that’s my new little home on the internet!  It’s essentially the same name as before but without the .wordpress bit, because I’m all fancy and have my own domain and it’s crazy, but I’m excited.

But?  You said goodbye in the title?

Yes, that was the closest I’ve ever come to clickbait.  I have no regrets: it’s essentially true because I am am saying goodbye to my WordPress site… Also, you clicked it, didn’t you?  And aren’t you glad you did?  I hope so.

I don’t know if I can trust you again.

You don’t have to trust my wordpress site ever again… But you know where there will be no clickbait?  On my new self hosted site.  thoughtsfromjasmine.co.uk would never lie to you, or give you clickbait.  thoughtsfromjasmine.co.uk is a changed woman, with some fresh funky comment coming your way… You should subscribe to thoughtsfromjasmine.co.uk

Okay, we get it.  We should go to thoughtsfromjasmine.co.uk.

You catch on quickly… You’re clearly a smart cookie.

I’ve seen the new site on my phone, it’s kinda cute!

Yeah, thank you, it is kind of cute on phones.  But you know where it’s cuter?  A laptop!  You don’t have to constantly read it from your laptop, but you should check it out there at least once, because it looks that much cuter.  

So, how did you go self hosted?  Was it tricky?  Did you cry from stress?

I could write a post on it?  I’m debating it.  Let me know in the comments if you’d like me to talk through my personal experience of going self-hosted because I’m happy to write it up.

It’s been fun pal, good luck on the new site.

Thank you!  And honestly I’ve loved every moment of this old one… Never thought I’d be as committed as I have been.  I hope you join me on this new journey because I’m going at it with full force.  Subscribe or keep up with me on social media, because things are about to get cool…

 

And there you have it, my big anouncement!  Hope you plan to join me over on my new site, as you can tell I’m more than a little bit excited.

Lots of love,

Jas xx

    When I first clicked on this post, I was so worried for a moment because I thought you were leaving the blogging world forever, but I’m glad it’s only because you’re going self-hosted – how exciting! I’m just heading over to your new site now, and I’m sorry it’s been so long Jasmine. I missed you. – Tasha
