Booomcha.com Has Moved!

Hello, Friends! I apologize for making two posts in one day but I hope this note finds you well. 🙂 The reason for this update is to make you all aware that I have switched host sites and now booomcha.com is self-hosted!

This has been a huge learning experience for me but so far, it’s been worth it. If you know anything about me, you know that I can’t leave my site alone. I am constantly coding and changing things, tweaking here and there. Well, I found wordpress.com to be too restrictive in the types of coding they allow. I still think they provide an excellent service and would recommend them, for sure. I just needed to hop out of the box I felt like I was in. lol

Speaking of changing things, this is also an FYI that tomorrow (March 8), I may be switching themes. I will try to make that as painless for you as possible, though. 🙂

This site should pretty much appear the same to you because I’m using wordpress.org software. Thankfully, I will still appear in your reader whenever anything is published. All my followers were successfully migrated here from wordpress.com, but if there are any issues, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Once again, thank you for your support, the love you’ve always shown me, and the encouragement. I truly love this community.

Anywhere you go, we will follow!! =D You are the author, so it is important that you are comfortable in the writing and publishing process. Good luck with the new location, and congratulations on becoming self-hosted!! ♥

Awesome! I was going to self host my site as well, but decided to hold off on it.

Thank you so much. <3 I'd been kicking the idea around for a really long time but was afraid I might lose major things in the migration process. You do lose your "likes," but I still have the comments, so I'm happy. :)

Oh, that’s cool! I didn’t notice anything as this just popped up in my reader~
I love how you constantly change things up 🙂 Part of the fun in running a site/blog is the creativity you can express in not just your writing but how things look/are presented. It’s quite fun XD Best of luck with the new site <3

Thank you, Amy! 🙂 I’m glad you didn’t notice. I was hoping it would be a smooth transition.

You said it! I can’t stop tweaking because I love it so much. It’s a way I can show my creativity. 😀

Are you leaving wordpress.?

Reply
RosemaryMarie March 8, 2018 - 9:59 am

I left wordpress.com and am using wordpress.org. They are nearly the same thing except that on wordpress.org, I pay for self-hosting. 🙂

Simsophonique March 9, 2018 - 5:26 am

wow congratulations ! So what does it means for your story? I have to follow an other blog?

Reply
RosemaryMarie March 9, 2018 - 5:37 am

Thank you 🙂 No, you don’t have to do a thing. My posts will still show up in the Reader. 😀

Simsophonique March 9, 2018 - 6:21 am

Thank you for explaning me. I don’t like following several blogs of the same person too much.

RosemaryMarie March 9, 2018 - 11:14 am

You’re welcome. <3 I can understand how you feel.

Simsophonique March 9, 2018 - 1:08 pm

Indeed that’s not fun at all when people has 10 blogs haha !

RosemaryMarie March 9, 2018 - 1:12 pm

LOL It’s difficult to keep track of, that’s for sure. 😀

Simsophonique March 9, 2018 - 1:15 pm

That’s one of the reason I don’t like myself getting two blogs but wp isn’t cheap.

RosemaryMarie March 9, 2018 - 1:18 pm

You’re right about that. That’s why all my stories are on one blog instead of spread over several blogs.

Simsophonique March 9, 2018 - 4:21 pm

I can’t pay so I do what I can to bound both. That’s the reason why I made a table of content for my second blog in this to make the things easy.

RosemaryMarie March 9, 2018 - 4:55 pm

Yes, that was a really good idea. It’s a good way to stay organized.

Simsophonique March 10, 2018 - 5:47 am

Thank you, indeed and also to make notice both are “the same blog”

Simsophonique March 9, 2018 - 1:10 pm

because I got a second blog attached to my main one (this account) and that’s horrible itself.

RosemaryMarie March 9, 2018 - 1:12 pm

LOL!

NotJustaBook March 8, 2018 - 9:56 am

That’s fantastic for you 😀 I’ve considered doing the same myself, but I was afraid of losing everything – but the transition seems really smooth from our end 🙂 For a sec there I was afraid I’d lose your posts in my reader, but thankfully that’s not the case <3
Guess I know where to ask for advice if I do make the jump some day 😀

RosemaryMarie March 8, 2018 - 10:02 am

Thank you, Louise! 🙂 It looks like all I lost are my likes on my posts. As long as I still have the comments, I’m happy. lol 😀 I’m thinking about removing the like button from the comments because it seems to take a long to load.

Anyway, even though I’m not using wordpress.com, I installed Jetpack and can use the reader. (Jes2G taught me that one! lol)

Me, too! LOL 😀 I had my fingers, eyes and toes all crossed, hoping it wouldn’t get messed up. LOL 😛
