Same blog, new site

After a great deal of research, time, and effort, I have moved Velez’s View to this self-hosting WordPress site. I have been using a free WordPress blog at Velez Communication for almost a year and had been thinking about moving my personal blog to a self-hosting site for some time. I delayed the move because I thought it would be too difficult and time consuming. Initially, it was indeed. Frustrating at times, to be honest. First I had to find a hosting site and then download the WordPress blogging program, then figure out how to make it all work. After a great deal of patience and energy, it all finally came together. If you have been thinking of making the switch please feel free to contact me for detailed information on my latest blogging-related journey.

Also, I’d like to give a shout out to the members of the NY Bloggers Meet-Up group, in particular Ms. Kitty Bradshaw. Kitty has an incredible blog. She’s also the one that finally made me take the big step to self-hosting. Thanks for the nudge and support, Kitty.

There’s still so much to learn, in regards to WordPress plug-ins and coding, but I hope to increase my knowledge and expertise over time. I’d like to also thank the people who follow this blog for their continued support.

Please take some time to view the excellent bloggers listed in my blog roll. Most have been great supporters for a while now. If you would like to exchange a blog roll listing please feel free to contact me directly.

Happy blogging.

  1. Hi, Phil.
    I like your new site! I find your post incredibly timely and helpful. I need your help and advice! Writing is my passion, but the tech stuff sometimes gets in the way. I’m trying to learn and navigate my way around (actually, my husband is the one really trying to fix my blog). Yes, I said fix…my blog hasn’t updated in weeks. I have emailed the folks at blogger many times over the past 5 weeks. No response. 🙁

    I have been contemplating WordPress, but fear the time and frustration it’ll cause. This morning, though, I really started to consider switching or stop blogging, but this has been a major source for the projects I am currently a part of and I don’t think dumping the blog would be wise…yet.

    Please email me with any info/advice you might have. My husband and I are going to look into WordPress.
    Thanks so, so, so much!

    Congratulations. I am thinking of doing this too. I have been using my domain for the Puerto Rico Sun social network, but I may start using it for my blog.

  4. Congratulations! I have mine set up and ready to go just haven’t had the courage to hit the ON button lol…Felicidades!

  5. Awww, congrats! Glad to see you crossed over into the light lolll. You BlogRoll is very SEO intensive. Also, the site design is very clean. I would move the adsense links closer to the top. Have you thought about getting a logo? Ok, I won’t overwhelm you, great job! Keep in touch…
