This month we are having a member come out and talk about his experience with moving from wordpress.com to a self hosted installation. If you’re not already a member of Nashville WordPress Meetup group then hit the link at the bottom of the post before you go!
A presentation on “WordPress.com to .org” – 20 minutes
“I’m an online chemistry tutor and promote my service through blogging. After about a year of blogging I was starting to run into some of the limitations of a wordpress.com site and I needed to migrate to a wordpress.org platform. This was scary for me, as I’m not very computer savvy. In this talk I’ll briefly go over the story of how I hired a developer to build a new site for me and how having a wordpress.org platform is giving me opportunities to grow my business beyond services to products.”
