Possible New Home

As mentioned in the previous blog post, I've been messing around with the idea of moving back to Wordpress. I went forward with downloading my Blogger content and uploading them over there, and so far, everything seems to be coming along well. 

At the moment I only have a free account but will be upgrading to a paid one. So for the time being, I'm afraid you'll all be putting up with ads here and there, which I absolutely HATE. But it wouldn't be free without them, yes? Yes.

So this is my possible new home. Once I get a paid account, the URL will be a unique domain name, but I'm not going back to the usual Hayden Thorne dot whatever when it happens. Haunted Lourdes will be my new domain name in case I decide to test the waters with more mainstream stuff. 

And as I'm still settling down over there, the appearance will be changing throughout the day or even the weekend. 


Okay so just when I was ready to give up on Blogger, I see that this site is NOW showing up on the first page of a Google search. Not at the top of the page, mind you, but still on the first page all the same. 

How did that take? Close to a year, I think, with weekly updates? 

That throws a wrench into things in a way, but at the same time, I'm keeping my options open as I understand that Wordpress at least is top of the line when it comes to support and updates. 

So yes - I'm holding on to both sites for now till I figure out which will benefit me the most in the long run.
