My blogger based blog ran into issues and was closed. Long story and I;m not going to rehash it. Anyway I decided to come to wordpress and start over. My thought was to be very strict about content copyright and go with a few adds. After purchasing the domain name I realized that that's not possible her. Entirely my fault. What I've learned is that to do what I want to do then I should self host. I have very few posts so it would be a simple matter of letting this blog die and just move on and start over. However I kike the name and want to keep it. Is it worth the trouble? I'm not intimidated but I don't think I have the aptitude. For example, I went to Bluehost (a recommended host on the WordPress.org site) and started to sign up. It asked me if I had a domain name which I do. But from all the reading I've done I still don't know if detaching it from wordpress is possible. I get the impression that it has to stay here and I have to pay to have it linked through to mu new host? If this is correct can I say that I "own" a domain name when registering or do in fact ned an alternate name for the ol name to link through to.
More confused than ever. I wish I had started from scratch and just used wordpress to set up my self hosted blog. I actually understanf THAT procedure. I'm sort of stuck. Any advice or direction to a how-to site for this noob much appreciated
The blog I need help with is motorcyclephotooftheday.com.
