It’s been a busy week though. I have successfully “self-migrated” to WP Engine – a fairly big step up from Bluehost in both service and price. If you noticed, I put the “self-migrated” in quotes because it was more like “self-creating disaster”. For those of you yet to move to a different webhost or migrate your site for some other reason, DON’T DO IT on your own. Those instructions look simple but it’s a lie. Much like a fast-moving Walmart line is a lie. Happily, the IT team was able to help and we finally got everything sorted out sometime Friday.
I didn’t really write anything of my own beyond the updates of my super crappy migration situation. So, onto bigger and better stuff.
