Over the weekend I decided (mainly out of frustration with the previous web host) to move the website off of the free hosting that I was using previously. I used namecheap a while back for the domain registration, and decided to use them for the web hosting as well. At $3.95 a month, it’s not breaking the bank and will (hopefully) be more reliable than xoomsite was.
I’ve gotten everything migrated over, and it was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. All of the posts transferred over, as well as the theme, and the only thing I really had to do was to re-install plugins. I also took the time to migrate over my Adventure Time Title Card Gallery from my other old site. The WordPress gallery feature is pretty cool, and made it a lot easier than I thought it would be, so that was nice!
I’m really happyy with the way the site is looking now. For the most part my CSS rampage is over, though there are a few smaller (and probably more difficult) things that I would like to do. The problem with these little things is that they could take me a few hours to get working and I doubt anyone would even notice, so these things aren’t really a high priority at the moment.
All in all I’m happy with how the migration went, and I’m looking forward to posting lots more stuff here real soon.
Side Note: I know it’s been a while since the last Ramen Adventure, and I just wanted to say that I’m debating doing any more of them. If I attempted another one, I would have to write up the Creamy Chicken flavored ramen I had last, which I’m trying very hard to forget about. It was bad guys… it was real bad… I still have the Oriental and Picantè Chicken and according to the Wikipedia page, there are a ton of other flavors that my grocery store doesn’t carry, although maybe that’s for the best… That just means I don’t have to try the Cheddar Cheese ramen they make.
