I am in the midst of the angst that is trying to go self-hosted.
Yes, I know some folks find all the technical stuff simple to accomplish but I am a woman of little brain.
I bought a domain name ages ago and then decided I did not like it.
Then I bought hosting space but without that simple one click type thing for WordPress that is recommended on the Tots100 tutorial.
So I hurtle into the mad language of FTP, DNS and gobbledegook. Is there a way to avoid it and still go self-hosted?
I have spent hours today on what I am told should be a 5 minute job.
Why exactly am I so very dense?
I have got as far as appearing to have a site in my domain name but it is full of adverts that I have not added for some reason. Will this change by the power of luck or time or should I just scrap it? I certainly have no idea of how to change it.
I don’t want to waste any more money on this enterprise but am wondering if I should go with TSOhost as recommended on Tots100 and just put up with starting all over again.
Bamboozled is the word.
If I am going to start again, I could choose a new domain but what should I be?
Stick with Kate on Thin Ice?
Emphasize the life-changing stuff I try to do for myself and others?
Mention my writing ambitions somehow?
Or go naked?
How much time should I commit before accepting that I need someone else to do this for me? And who is that person? Form an orderly queue folks.
You get the picture.
Now tell me the solution you lovely people.
