Migrating from WordPress Server to WordPress.com

Last year, when my site on Bluehost came up for renewal, I decided that I ought to migrate to WordPress.com to save some money. I’ve been spending around $133 per year for my domains, hosting, and storage, and I just don’t blog enough to justify that anymore. Paying Bluehost was worth it to move off the server that used to run on a computer in my living room, but it’s not worth it anymore, especially because my sites have been going down multiple times a day.

I have been working on migrating to WordPress.com for the last week or so. I first had to roll back a test migration, which took a surprisingly long amount of time; all the pages and posts had to be deleted, and the process kept timing out. Then, I had to re-migrate everything so this site had the latest posts from both mstublefield.com and meta-manage.com.

I get one free domain with the cheapest plan here on WP (which was $36 instead of $133 for the year), so I’m letting meta-manage.com go.

Don’t expect any more frequent blogging than I have been doing… but know that things are going fantastically at Adaptavist. I’ll likely publish here in March to point you at some of the stuff we’ll be releasing then.
