    I love this post as it is so relatable! I was wondering, did you transfer your stats? Because when all my followers were transferred, my stats didn’t, did the same thing happen to you? xxx

      Aww thank you so much as always lovely, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! No, I only transferred my followers but transferring my stats is definitely something I’m going to look into so yes don’t worry as my stats didn’t transfer either xx

    Congrats on going self-hosted! After reading your experience, I feel pretty good about going self hosted in the future which is different cause most of the posts I’ve read of people going self hosted seem to have had a lot of issues!
    I do want to ask you though, why you decided to go with Siteground? I’ve heard Bluehost is a really good and well known web hosting platform, so I don’t know if Siteground is better than that, from your experience I would say it is!
    Just want to know your opinion on that
    Anyways great post, will definitely try coming back to this in the future! 💕💕

      Aww thank you so much lovely, I’m so glad you found it helpful!! Yes, the only issue I had was transferring my followers but that’s really easy to do yourself following the tutorial I linked in the post so don’t worry if they don’t transfer! I didn’t really know what to expect but the process was a lot easier than I thought it would be and if I got stuck I asked on Siteground’s live chat support that put me in touch with someone from their team or found tutorials on google once my site was finished for things like transferring my followers. I decided to go with Siteground as I’d seen lots of other bloggers go with them and they had all had positive experiences with them. When I was researching, the majority of people said they chose site ground also. In my experience, they offer such great support and security which is something that definitely reassured me as I was totally clueless until I’d actually done it myself but there honestly is nothing to worry about! I don’t know much about Bluehost but it sounds like another great option. I’m sure they will both be great but I have been really impressed with Siteground’s service. I hope that helps and you manage to sort it out! Let me know if you do decide to go self hosted in the future!! Thanks for reading also Hun xx

    Ah this post is so so helpful, thanks soo much for writing it! In the future sometime I’d love to go self hosted, and I’m sure I’ll come back to this post because it is going to be so useful! The customisation sounds amazing and pipdig themes are simply GORGEOUS! Your post makes me really excited to go self hosted when I eventually do! 😊💗

      Aww thank you so much lovely as always, I’m so glad you found it helpful! Yes, there are SO many more customising options and it’s so nice to be able to design your blog exactly how you want without being limited with the options. I was surprised at how many different things you can do! That’s great! If you do decide to go self hosted, make sure to let me know! I’d definitely recommend downloading a theme from Pipdig! xx 🙂
