I think it’s time that I starting taking this whole blogging thing more seriously. From looking at other successful blogs, it looks as though I need to go self-hosted. While I’ve had lots of experience using WordPress in the past, I’ve never self-hosted before, and with so many options available, I really don’t know where to start!
A very helpful person on twitter told me that I need to get a domain name, find a hosting company and get a hosting plan. Err…okay! I’m quite intuitively techy so I know I’ll be fine once I’m pointed in the right direction but with so many monthly payment plans around, I really want to know what would be best for me. So any advice from those of you who have been-there-done-that-and-got-the-tshirt would be much appreciated.
I like using WordPress so would like to keep doing that. But beyond that…
What was the best advice you have when you went self-hosted? What would you recommend?
