We’re going to upgrade WordPress to the latest version for this blog any moment now, so if there should be some problems during or afterwards – be patient please.

If you have the chance to set up your own domain at a webhost like Blue Host or similar, you should definitely consider to use wordpress as your free blogging software. Be sure to choose a webhost that gives you Fantastico which offers you easy installation and upgrades of WP through your webhosts controlpanel. If you don’t want the webhost solution, you can have a free account at Personally I don’t like the free account there so much, but that’s probably because I have had the own webhosted variant already…. I’m spoiled :-)

NOTE: If you decide to get an own domain name, don’t forget to make sure that you get the privacy protection service. It’s not sure it’s for free, but if you don’t, your address details is available for anyone who does a whois look up in the internet!

The have very good information about all the stuff regarding WP, one of the best. I always read a lot there – especially now before doing the upgrade. To make sure not to do anything clumsy.

There is a lot of information to get about wordpress in Technorati tags too.

NOTE: We need to upgrade this blog several WP-versions in steps, so keep this post in your mind for a while.

    good luck in making this change. i belong to several blog sites but i like blogspot the best so far. it is always hard whenever you start some thing new though.

    Thank you MrHaney. Yes, I’m a little familiar with blogspot/blogger because of my mothers blog, it’s a nice alternative really. I like more freedom to “poke around” with the code, plugins etc. It’s all about what needs you have of course :-)

    Don’t worry, I’ll be patient. :)

    And that’s another reason why I don’t want to get my own domain, because of the loss of privacy. If I have a personal blog where I talk about the people in my life, it also won’t be fair to the people I talk about if everyone knew who they are.

    Another option is to get hosted by someone else, like me now. :) It helps if that person hosting you is a friend. Hehe!

    That’s why you shall ask for the privacy protections service, then it’s like any other alternative. No one can see who you are. I like an own domain name, because you got to choose whatever you like to name your blog and nothing else in it. And I can control the site completely by myself. I like to poke around…
    But if having a friend that hosting you, that is the best of course…

    I guess the fact that I understood only about half of what you just wrote mean that I am probably not ready to make a change.

    Either that or I’ll ask my kids to do it. They’ll laugh at me, of course…

    Lifecruiser said:

    You can’t understand or do everything sisiggy, so just be happy with what you got and get experienced in your own pace :-)

    Laugh always is a good thing… even if people laugh at you instead of with you… It’s healthy!

    Hmm but you must pay extra for the privacy protection, I don’t like that. :(

    I guess I’m just not the kind to get my own domain name, for now at least. But I do agree it’s very cool to own one! The URL is shorter too! :)
