Hello Hello Hello! Welcome to the new ellamaygarrett.com blog. I really hope you guys like it! It has taken me a few days to umm and ahh about making this decision, go through with it and then figure out how the hell everything works so please give me time to understand the various hurdles of going self hosted.
I am very new to this and the only help I received was from a few very late night conversations with the Site Ground team where I essentially panicked over and over to them so please understand that this isn’t 100% up and running how I would like just yet. Although, I am extremely happy with how my site is looking at the moment and I hope you are too!
I want to apologise for any mistakes you may notice – I am still tweaking some little things here and there. I also know that two drafts got published in the time I was working on my site which I tried (and obviously failed) to prevent. I am really sorry about that too.
Please let me know if this post appears in WordPress reader as I have had some problems with that so your feedback would be really appreciated. If there is anything, as a follower, that you like or would like me to change please let me know. What is most important is ellamaygarrett being accessible and perfect for you guys.
I will be doing a self hosted experience post (update: it is here now!) as it was a reasonably stressful experience for myself and people’s post such as Adell’s and Angela’s really helped me understand what I was doing.
I have contacted the giveaway winner already (which was the lovely Chloe) and I am posting her prize off to her today. Thank you so much to everyone that entered, it was so great to see it go down well! Because of how well things went I am hoping to hold another one before Christmas and ensure it is international as that was something I know you guys wanted.
Thank you for your endless support!
