We’re Moving: Here’s How It Affects You

Hey there!

I wanted to let you all know that tomorrow I’ll be migrating My Instruction Manual.

For its first four months, the blog has been hosted at WordPress. It’s been a good ride. But I’ve got some big things planned, and in order to grow, the blog needs to become self-hosted.

The change will happen tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 22.

You may notice a few changes:

  • If you follow the blog through WordPress, you will no longer get e-mails each time I post. You will still continue to receive my content through the WordPress Reader, but if you want to receive emails whenever there’s fresh content, you need enter your email address in the green box that says “Follow us by email!.” You’ll find this box to the right if you’re on a web browser, or down below all the blog posts if you’re using a mobile device.
  • While your comments will remain, all your likes will disappear from my posts. Don’t worry. I know we’re still friends.
  • I’ve decided to stop re-blogging posts, so I’m going to take this opportunity to delete the re-blogged posts from My Instruction Manual. If you’ve commented on these re-blogged posts, your comments will disappear. Sorry!

With a big change like this, it’s always possible there will be unforeseen problems such as posts disappearing or the site going dark. If this happens, I’ll do my best to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.

Please watch this space for announcements about what’s next for My Instruction Manual. Meantime, I’d love to connect with you on Facebook, Twitter and Bloglovin’.
