If you received a notification about this post through email, then you are one of the subscribers of The Filipino Scribe (TFS). Before anything else, I’d like to thank each of you for being regular readers of this blog.
As I have said time and again, this blog has gone a long way from its simple beginnings back in 2011. After three years and 552 articles, TFS has now received over 2.6 million page views. As the sole administrator of this blog, I can’t help but be proud of that achievement.
In those three years, TFS has been hosted in WordPress.com. Since WordPress takes care of everything, from backing up of blog entries to page security, I was able to focus my (limited!) time on writing.
However, this set-up is like me just renting an apartment instead of having my own house. Although WordPress.com has been a magnificent host, I felt it’s high time for TFS to be self-hosted.
This will give me more flexibility to tweak this site as I please, particularly its overall appearance. This will also allow me to earn more from this endeavor. As I noted in a post last January, I have earned very little through WordAds.
I am leaning toward tapping BlueHost as my new blog host, with WordPress.org as the new platform. If the entire migration process go smoothly, you shall see the upgraded version of TFS by April 21 at the latest.
For now, I am asking all WordPress subscribers of TFS to re-subscribe by entering your email address in the space provided in the right side of this web page (below “Subscribe to this blog!”). You can see it just above my Twitter widget.
As one song says, “This is not goodbye, this is starting over.” See you all very soon. 😉
