I am very interested in moving my wordpress.com blog to its own url.  I am also interested in coming up with a much more attractive blog design.  So, for this week’s Backwards Works for Me Wednesday I have some questions about this.

  1. What is the process to backup and restore my wordpress.com blog to its own url?
  2. How can (or can I) redirect traffic from the wordpress.com blog to the new url to maintain the incoming links and traffic?
  3. If you have your own url, who do you use for your web hosting service? Are you satisfied with the service? Why or why not?
  4. Have you had your site professionally redesigned? If so, who did you use? Were you satisfied? Why or why not?
  5. If you did not have your site professionally designed, did you modify a template and how did you go about designing your own site?
  6. Is it possible to
  7. Do you have any other advice as I (hopefully) embark on this?

Thank you so much for your help in answering my questions!!

Today’s prompt for Sunday Scribblings is I get that sinking feeling.

It has been in the upper 90s and low 100s around here for the past several weeks.  The days have been scorchers.  Because of that there has not been a lot of outside play for the children.  While I tried to have quite a few outings to family and friends’ homes, the days have been l-o-n-g when they are at home.  There is only so much television I allow them to watch and I have bent that rule in the past week.  The toys are fun but after awhile.  There is only so much tv and toys that two twins can enjoy any given day.  Needless to say, the children have been getting on each other’s nerves a little bit.

This morning as BusyBoy and GigglyGirl were playing and apparently GigglyGirl was not sharing the way BusyBoy wanted her to share.  They got in a bit of a squabble but, I thought, they got over it rather quickly.  Apparently I was wrong that they got over it quickly.  A few minutes later I hear BusyBoy yell, “GigglyGirl, you are NOT my sister.” 

Luckily, they did get over the squabble quickly after that.

I get the sinking feeling that their arguments are moving to another level.
