Steve’s Tech Blog 2.0

My Tech Quest aka Steve Tech Blog 2.0

Welcome to My Tech Quest aka Steve’s Tech Blog version 2.0!

Today marked as an important day in my life because I am now sitting in front of my laptop writing the very first post for my wordpress blog, the Steve’s Tech Blog 2.0 or should you called it as My Tech Quest. Today, I did the migration of my previous blog posts and comments from Blogger to WordPress. Thanks god no difficulty happened in between the process of migration. So starting today, I will no longer be using Blogger platform anyone for the rest of my life! So goodbye to you, Blogger and welcome ,Wordpress!

I bought an one-year basic web hosting plan at Lunarpages on last Friday at a discounted price . I paid USD 67.40, instead of USD 95.40, thanks to the promo code I found from googling. I really want to go for 2-years but I have a tight pocket. And also plus the USD 14.90 for the 2-years domain name that I bought at Godaddy. So in total, I have spent over RM 250 ( in Ringgit ) for the domain and web hosting.

Now I really know why people say Blogger users are lazy because the process of setting up a Blogger blog doesn’t require much work than WordPress. Don’t you think? At the time of writing, I am still has a lot of tweaking to do on this blog. So, I am sorry if this blog looks ugly at this moment. Later, it will get better I promise.

P.S. : My advice to all the Blogger users out there, get yourselves a self-hosted blog or you will regret!

Steve Yu is a technology blogger with seven years blogging experience under his belt. He is the founder of MyTechQuest.com or just MTQ.
  • how come u didn’t buy the hosting from godaddy as well? I’ve been with them for 2 yrs. Fantastic service and good products.

    Oh, welcome to WordPress! Takes a while to get used to but you’ll really like it 🙂

  • Welcome to the world of wordpress…
    There’s are tonnes of plugins which you can use.

    BTW, I disagree that Blogger can’t do much tweaking, You can still basically do a lot of stuff using blogger if you know where to host your files and code everything into 1 template.

    My head gonna explode because of information overload. There are lot of stuff to learn in WordPress! But I am starting to enjoy working with WordPress! 🙂 Why I didn’t bought hosting from Godaddy? Simply because I like more storage and bandwidth.

    I did quite a number of tweaking during my time with Blogger. But I am not quite satisfied with the control that I have on my Blogger blog. So I decided to switch to WordPress. If only I have started with my own domain in the very beginning. 🙂

    huh so fast changed to your own domain. Erm its a good news! Happy Blogging 😀

  • You could have ask me, I’ve got Lunarpage Aff, which in return if we share the profit, you might just end up paying less than $20/yr. Or better still, host with me in Media Temple.

    Anyway, smart choice of changing to WordPress. All the best 🙂

  • vickie > Thanks, hehe… I should have use WordPress start from the beginning.

    hongkiat > Omg!!! I could have save some money! 🙁

  • vickie

    erm… You should not regret of start blogging from blogspot. At first you might afraid you wouldn’t continue to blog ba? Actually I started blogging on blogspot after a month I changed to own domain only

  • First of all, I’d like to congrats you for moving your blog from Blogger to own hosted WordPress. You have chosen a clean layout, which is very good. I have compiled a list of great plugins for WordPress, you may want to check it out.

    Oh, just a suggestion..Maybe you want to add an orange RSS button on top of your “Keep you updated with latest posts, click here to subscribe to My Tech Quest RSS Feed!” banner. I was previously subscribed to your old blogspot feed, and thinking of updating it while looking for your RSS feed. I was looking for the RSS icon first without reading that line. Images normally catches more attention first.

    Happy blogging in WordPress.
