I have a blog with a custom domain name: juliedawnfox.com. I want to keep the pages I have on this domain name and make it the first point of call for potential clients.
I want to take the posts, and images, from this blog and create a separate blog with a new name. I have already purchased a new domain: livetravelportugal.com but I have done nothing with it yet. I will eventually be transferring this to wordpress.org in order to be able to monetize it. All my content is currently on juliedawnfox.com
I don't know what to do next as I don't want to lose the links or google cred that I've already built up, or my followers.
I read that Site Redirect is the simplest way of changing a blog address but I still want to use the pages I have at juliedawnfox.com so I don't know if this is still an option.
I was originally thinking that it would be best to use Site Redirect to change the name and THEN transfer to self-hosting via WP.org but I don't know if that would work, especially if I want to lose my current blog pages on the existing domain name.
If you can understand what I'm trying to ask, can you help me?
The blog I need help with is juliedawnfox.com.
