I’m preparing to move Always Well Within to SquareSpace, a different hosting platform. The actual move will take place in one to two weeks. I won’t publish new posts until after the move. I have a good one ready to go though — on how not to take things personally. So stay tuned.
My new site will have the same name and same url so you won’t need to do anything different to find me.
Between now and then, I’ll set up and finish the design of my new website and prune my archive of almost 600 posts. Many of my earlier posts are no longer relevant or up to my current writing standards. Since they received little attention at the time, I don’t think Google search will freak out if I delete them.
Once I make the move, I’ll have to set up 301 redirects for each remaining post on my blog, which is a way to tell search engines to go to a new link. Otherwise, you’ll get the “page not found” message. That will likely take several days since I’ll move around 300 posts.
During that time, if you visit Always Well Within, you may see a “Site Under Construction” page. But rest assured, I’ll be back soon, in a matter of days.
This move will solve my SSL certificate problem, a new website requirement set up by Google search to ensure that you only go to secure sites. I’ll also save money and will no longer have to deal with complex technical issues – like plug-in conflicts or hack attacks. I also love the simplicity and beauty of the SquareSpace templates.
I must have seen this coming because I took a wonderful SquareSpace Design class called SquareSpace 101 more than a year ago, which I recommend highly. But then I felt daunted by the thought of making all those 301 redirects and never made the actual move.
I can’t wait to show you my new site on SquareSpace! I value simplicity, beauty, and elegance. I think the right ambiance on a digital space can help a visitor feel relaxed and at ease rather than confused and chaotic. I hope my new site reflects these qualities.
In the meantime, if you’re new here or simply need a good read, check out some of the gems I found as I pruned my archive:
