Two Steps Back May mean One Hundred Steps Forward.

My blog is hosted at wordpress.com. WordPress.com is a great place for hosting all kinds of information and I highly recommend them for anyone who just wants to put information on the internet for free. There are some limitations and those limitations are affecting some things I want to do with my site in the future. I won’t go into all of that now.

What I will tell you is that I’ve come to understand that I have to move my site from wordpress.com, which is hosted, for free to worpress.org. The good news is that at wordpress.org I will have more freedom as to what I can do and accomplish with my site.  The bad news is….

  • At wordpress.org I will have to arrange my own hosting which will involve a monthly fee.
  • All the good stuff that wordpress.com did for me like backing up my site, protecting me from spam and overall maitinence will now be up to me.
  • And the worst part is two fold.
    • I have to move everything from wordpress.com to wordpress.org.
    • I may loose my subscribers and have to start completely over. I’m not sure about that part yet.

Sometimes life growth requires that we first go backwards. It’s like pruning a tree. It looks sad and barren but within a few months it has grown beyond where it was originally.

So I have to take a step back. This will be my last post for a while. I don’t know how long it will take me to get the new site up. It could be anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Next time I do an update it will be at my new site.

The new site will look very similar to this one and you will find it with the same www.jeffscurlock.com.

    Change is never easy and sometimes very hard to do. Proud of you for taking advantage of the technology available for reaching out to people. One thing I have found out in life is this: we must change if we intend to grow. I know that you have grown a lot in the past few months and I hope that you know that you have been an inspiration to me and have inspired me to study how I need to change and grow. Keep up the good work and I enjoy your posts.
