In a previous post, I blogged about the struggles I experienced in purchasing web hosting. Next, I installed WordPress.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I relied on a blog post I found to guide me thorough moving from Blogger to WordPress (by Nosegraze).
Step 2: Installing WordPress
One of the big differences for me between Blogger and WordPress is that with Blogger, even with a custom domain, I needed to log into the Blogger admin page to edit my blog. With WordPress, my admin login has the same root URL as my custom domain… which caused my problems due to my lack of technical knowledge. More on that later!
4. Next, because I had a custom domain, I needed to edit the name servers on the DNS records. What this does is to tell my domain name to point at my WordPress blog instead of my Blogger blog.
Press save, and I was done!
