Melissa came to me in a panic – she wanted control and ownership of her blog and her content. She also wanted a fresh new design to match the focus of her blog: “Treats with a healthy twist“. She had been searching for quotes for a transfer from blogspot to self-hosted WordPress and was upset because she couldn’t afford the $1100 she had been quoted.
The transfer from blogspot went really smoothly – she was already using feedburner, so transferring her feed went well. I also matched the WordPress permalink structure to her existing one at blogspot, so that visitors from referring links wouldn’t get “Page Not Found” errors. I then disabled google from indexing her old blogspot site so that she wouldn’t be penalized for duplicate content.
Re-designing her site was fun! Her old blogspot site was pink – which along with her site’s content, reminded me of candy and sweet yummy goodness, just like Melissa’s personality. When I found the pink polka dot background I instantly knew how to make her content POP! out.
Thank you Melissa for letting me transfer you over from blogspot!
