Welcome to the new Turkey Runner! Hopefully I have done everything right and you have successfully found your way to turkeyrunner.com. My usual weekly roundup will be up tomorrow morning.

I had been thinking about making the switch from Blogger to WordPress for awhile. I finally decided if I was going to make the switch, I may as well go all in and go the domain name/self-hosted route. Talk about one of the most confusing, and at times frustrating, things I’ve ever done!

But I got through it and hopefully you should find everything here that you found at turkeyrunner.blogspot.com. All of my pages are the same, although I changed the formatting of my ‘Race History’ page. I also decided to add a Chick Days page, where you can find a compilation of all of my chicken-related posts.

Please let me know if you find anything that is not working, and I will do my best to figure out a fix.ย I am aware that the Instagram display on the far right sidebar is not currently working, and I’m trying to resolve it. it’s a neat feature, so I’m hoping to get it working, but I may end up just removing it.

Also, if you use a reader like Feedly or Bloglovin’, make sure you add www.turkeyrunner.com to your feed! And if you subscribe by email (Dad ๐Ÿ™‚ ) you’ll need to re-subscribe. It’s on the sidebar.

In other news, I also recently joined Twitter. I felt very welcomed with all of the tweets I received… and the first thing I did was figure out how to turn off email notifications ๐Ÿ˜‰


I’m still figuring all things Twitter out, but so far it has been another wonderful distraction on my smart phone. Speaking of social media, I added a widget at the top of the far right sidebar where you can directly link to my social media pages. It looked like that’s what all the cool kids do. I also created a Facebook page for my blog, because that also seemed like a cool kid thing.

What do you think of the new website?
Any tips for switching to self-hosting?

  1. Website looks pretty good. Looking forward to your first post. I also have a twitter account I set up to follow Deb at debruns.com during the ultra run on the W&OD last summer. Haven’t spent anytime figuring out how to use it. Guess I will try again.

    Congrats and see you soon!


  2. Wow first day out of the gate and it is already running more smoothly than the affordable healthcare site. Congrats Turkey Runner
