Website Migration to HostGator!

After some serious contemplation, and a comparison “study” of a handful of different paid web hosts, I’ve decided to move my website (and blog) away from the free Blogger platform and back to WordPress, hosted on my own paid host. I’ve selected as my host of choice for several reasons:

  • Lowest promotional ($2.63/mo) and standard ($6.95/mo) rates
  • One-click WordPress installation
  • Unmetered bandwidth and storage
  • Unlimited subdomains and email accounts

There are loads of new features that I’m excited to try out. But before I can do that, I’ll need to port all my content over to the new platform. Getting the text content from Blogger into WordPress was easy enough. But not all pictures transferred over seamlessly, and some paragraph formatting has been messed up. It’ll take some manual correction to fix everything. In the meantime, let me know what you think and if you find any problems! Shoot me an email at my new email address:

Missing in action…

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, or vlogged, and it’s entirely on travel (for leisure) to blame! But don’t you worry, my eager friends… the New Orleans vlog is in the works! Haha. This will most likely be the only dedicated vlog I produce from the various trips I’ve taken since it was the only one where I was intentionally vlogging. I took some video from every trip, but didn’t really try to “vlog” them all. When producing a vlog, you really do have to have a different cap on. It’s not just letting the camera record as often as possible… it’s partly that, but also remembering to speak to the camera and film enough B roll to fill in the scenes.

I am far from a professional videographer, but it’s fun and I enjoy applying my own creative style to the videos I produce. It’s going to take me awhile to edit the New Orleans vlog since I went there for 3 days and took a digital ton of footage… but hopefully I’m able to cut it all down to a fun and interesting few minutes to share! Stay tuned!
