I posted last year that I had landed a book deal based on my blog. The book ships in 6 weeks. I saw the cover yesterday and the current blog address is listed on the back.
I am having a website built for the book and wanted to port my wordpress.com blog to wordpress.org and have it as a tab on the book website.
Two questions: 1. do I have to worry about traffic when the book is released if it's still on .com? Is there a limit to traffic on the blogs (not that I am assuming it will go up that much but hopefully it sees a spike)? Is there anything I need to do (upgrade etc) to prepare for an uptick in traffic?
2. Is there redirection when I move the blog? If someone types in the current address will it be redirected to the new one? I am thinking of moving it after the book launch but I hope that people will be able to find it once I move it.
Sorry if these are stupid questions but I'm nervous about possible disaster. Thanks much!
The blog I need help with is gettingpastyourpast.wordpress.com.
