Moving a WordPress Blog

September 3, 2008 at 4:40 am (News, Tutorials) (, , , , , , )

Over the next few weeks I will be moving this hosted blog to a self hosted site as part of my continued effort to improve my search engine optimization and marketing. I thought that it would be fun to take you along. So….

After doing some research (this is my first wordpress implementation) I decided to download and install a free naked theme…Which really means I went over to Ellliot Jay Stocks site and downloaded the ‘starker’ theme.

Now that I have started off on a clean slate I will be adding some styling over the next few weeks (hopefully sooner). In my research I also noticed that Chris Coyier over at CSS-Tricks did a series of screencasts on designing for wordpress so I will be watching those as I head down this road.

If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to leave a comment.
