New Blog Design & Going Self-Hosted!

New Blog Design & Going Self-Hosted!

As you may be able to tell from the different look of my blog…I have a new blog design and have taken my blog self-hosted!

I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out and that is all down to the wonderful people at Pipdig who helped me through this whole process.

I have been wanting to go self-hosted for such a long time but never knew where to start.
After hearing about Pipdig I knew I wanted to use one of their themes – all the themes are so beautiful and suit so many different needs and styles of website.

The theme that I chose is Viva Viva and there were a few themes that I was choosing between but in the end this is the one that I decided would work best for me.

The hosting company I went with was SiteGround as this is the one that Pipdig recommended and I thought their plans were great and I found one which worked for me at a reasonable price.

After I had set up the hosting and purchased my theme, I filled in a form and Pipdig set my whole website up for me free of charge.

They were so helpful, especially Phil who helped set up my site and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new website theme or looking to go self-hosted.

I am still getting used to everything and changing little bits about my blog but overall I am so so happy with it and am looking forward to how I can progress my blog in the future.

Sorry this post wasn’t very long or interesting but I thought I would share my exciting news about my blog re-launch!

I am looking forward to making more blog content and finding ways to improve my blog further.

See you next week with a new post,
