Once again, it’s moving time but instead of moving the whole household across town like we did last year or her quilting business into an honest to goodness storefront in town this year, this time it’s her long standing www.longmeadowfarms.com website to a new host (BlueHost). Although this move may not involve a whole lot of back breaking labor, it does involve a whole lot of trepidation. This venerable website has been around for nearly ten years now (which is akin to saying the house we live in has been around for nearly 100 years now) and thrived for several years, been lost, got found, resuscitated and is well on it’s way up the ranks once again so it may be understandable why I feel like we’re handling some very fragile collectible that you definitely don’t want to drop. That’s me of course. I’m sure my honey thinks it’s just another walk in the park. After all, it’s not the first time it’s been moved but hopefully it’s the last.
The website will be up until Monday, November 13th when the transfer will take place and the website will be down for a few days and should be back up by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. The reason for the 2-3 day wait is so her Registrar can point her domain from it’s current host to the new one.
Wish us luck all.
Moving the blog as well?
On another note, my wonderful lady has offered one of her add-on domains that come with her Bluehost account to me if I care to move this fascinating blog 😛 of mine to Bluehost as well and do the “host my own” thing like some of my fellow bloggers have. Considering I’ve wanted to do more to this blog than just post to it for awhile now (like change colors, manipulate sidebars and generally messing it right up), I just might take her up on it. We’ll see.
Oh god…that means I’ll have to learn CSS! Can my old(er) brain handle it?
Anway, think good thoughts all and her website will be back up on her new host with no hands lost. Me?…I’ll move later and then I’ll be begging for all sorts of help I’m sure.
