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. 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 🙂 ) 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 😉
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?
