Moving my blog to my own server

by on Mar.24, 2009, under Uncategorized

Although I like the services and easy of use that Squarespace provides, I have decided to move my blog to my own server that I already have, and use my domain that I have had for many years at new_www

Ubulwembu means web in Zulu and therefore the name of my new blog will become “Sephem’s Ubulwembu Blog”.

I will be using WordPress to provide my blogging system, of which I have not used for a while, and I am highly impressed with the latest version. It is extremely user friendly and easy to use.

Don’t worry, I will still be doing a writeup on what I think of Squarespace, but I do not feel and cannot afford at this time to spend on another hosting plan when I already own my own reseller hosting.

All old posts have been migrated to the new server so go ahead and take a look.

My First blog

by on Mar.21, 2009, under Uncategorized

Well time has come for me to hop onto the blogging and social networking bandwagon. Therefore I have decided to use Squarespace as a trial for my first blog.

Now comes the real test of whether I can actually keep a blog going. Ever since I was young I have tried to keep a journal or a diary of some sort. I would go out and buy it and then after a few days forget that I even had it. I guess that the trick would be to make sure that you have some kind of a reminder that just pesters you till you have added an entry on whatever is felt to be the best time between posts.

It does not stop there I guess as what is a blog without some mention somewhere else to get readers to your blog? This is where I like the term Twitter gives it, “Tweeting”. So if thats the case, I guess I will be singing like a bird.

I would also like to have all your comments out there whether good or bad as this I beleave is the only way to make sure that what I am blogging about is making an impact on what others think and feel, and for me to know if I need to change something or not.

I will also be testing some other systems to see what would be the best way to get a blog and website up and running. As time goes by I will defiantly be posting my thoughts on each of these systems so that others in the same situation can have a bit of information to go on to get there own blogs up and running as well.
