the dreaded upgrade

I’ve been procrastinating about updating my version of WordPress for a.g.e.s. Expecting it to be a complete and total nightmare since I’m not very techie, I’ve read through the installation section of “WordPress for Dummies” several times, have read the WP upgrade instructions several times and still didn’t feel confident about doing anything without causing big problems.

Tonight, I was about to draft an email to my hosting company and ask them if they could upgrade for me and how much it would cost when I decided to read through all my correspondence from them from when I set up my site to see if anything was there. I found an old email that I had received from Blogs About Hosting and realized that I had been procrastinating and worrying for no reason. All I had to do was open the program in my cpanel called “fantastico” and click on the “upgrade” button. Everything was completely done in a matter of seconds.

Whew! Don’t I feel silly!

By the way, if you’re in the market for a hosting company or are having trouble with yours, I highly recommend Blogs About Hosting. I’ve not had a single bit of trouble or dissatisfaction since the day my site was up and running. They were very helpful and patient with all my questions and have very reasonable hosting fees – very important things, in my opinion, when searching for someone to host your website/blog.
