www.novelistabarista.com

So...

I bought a domain name, www.novelistabarista.com

What the heck do I do now?! It is SO confusing! Can I transfer this blog to there?? I hope so, otherwise I just waited $10! I got it from godaddy.com .... god i am so lost!

If ANYONE can help me that would be GREAT!

Has anyone else done this before?!

Actually. You could've just bought the domain your blog is already at, and renamed it that. Then you wouldn't have to move a thing and you would keep all your readers and nothing would change. The only thing that happens is views drop dramatically, and so does your google rating. So it's a toss up as to wether it's worth it. If you need any more info, just email me.

oh that's awesome! I was wondering how much it was to buy the domain. Eating A Tangerine (cuileann) bought hers so you might want to ask her when she gets back from vacation.

LOL! I did it. It is pretty easy IIIIIIIIFFFFFFFFFF and only IF you got your domain through google [and yes u still buy it from godaddy] but the whole transfer thingy is just WAYY easier.

Did you get ir through Google or not? Let me know and I'll help you out. =)

Congrats on the domain name!! I believe you should be able to transfer everything, but alas, I don't know how so I'm of now help :( Good luck though!

I bought mine too but i kept getting the run around with issues about pointing the website to google or some shit and i basically asked them to cancel it. It's still good for another year but I dont even use it.

Now that you have a domain name, you need to set up your hosting service. I use Laughing Squid at work. Then you will need to move all of your wordpress files in the root directory and change your wordpress settings to point to the new URL.

Oh i have one which i got for one of my entrepreneurial ventures. I still have it and got it from Yahoo. Its never came online as due to funds i gave it up but someday i will bring it to life...maybe after an mba. Nez...what do you do...be awesome the way you are...now u can use it the way you want. Create the directories as M.J. said and you can get someone to use scripting to add the effects and whatever ...In short, your world is there..start filling it. And Happy Diwali.

I'm no help but have been thinking of buying my own domain name so...you should totally write some blog posts about this process to help your faithful readers out. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

congrats on the domain name. i dont know what to suggest but i know you'll think of something. i also love your header pic.

Oh I'm not sure, I actually had someone do it all for me. Eek, good luck! Since you're going self hosted, I recommend getting Disqus to handle your comments (that I set up myself so once you get your blog moved to the new site, you can follow the directions).

Good luck again!! :)

This marks you as a classified hot blogger. Ha. They always have their own domain names lol

If you wanted to move this blog to your webpage I think you can do so by clicking on settings next to your blog on the dashboard. Then click export blog. Hope this helps.
