My Midnight Buddy!


I sometimes refer to my friend LJ as my Midnight Buddy. A typical night owl like me,
we're both most active after the sun goes down, and often end up having interesting email conversations in the wee hours of the morning while everyone else is sound asleep. Last week, our conversation turned to my interest in switching to paid hosting for my perfume blog. I love discussing blog issues with LJ. She makes it easy for me to understand things that seem foreign to the less tech-savvy like me. As usual, she was very helpful and explained to me in great detail, the steps I needed to take in order to move my current blogspot blog to my own domain.

Switching to paid hosting would be one scary experience for me, but LJ reassured me that it was feasible and she made it sound very simple. She also stressed on reliability, which is another vital factor to consider when choosing the best web hosting company for you. You wouldn't want a web hosting site that constantly blacks out; leaving you in the dark without any backup network, so it's best to window-shop first before choosing one for your site.

I really did learn a lot more about web hosting from my conversation with LJ. She clarified any doubts I had about moving my current blog to my own domain and was patient enough to answer any silly questions and confusions I had about the topic. From purchasing a domain to transferring my current blogspot blog to my new domain name, LJ explained every step clearly; convincing me that this move was possible, even for me!

It's good to have a knowledgeable and wonderful friend like LJ, one who's more than willing to share and help others. And though I'm still undecided about the whole web hosting issue, that's solely due to my fickleness and not because she wasn't convincing enough. So thank you LJ! If and when I gather enough courage to move my blog together with my precious links, I'll owe it all to my Midnight Buddy! :)

You were a great help dearie, for the first time I really did understand the actual process and was 99% convinced to switch, until that techno link issue came up!
