Guys, I suck at this internet thing.
I’ve wanted to change my blog name from lagrancostanza to tabeakatharina and register it as a domain for a while. I just worried about the broken links this change would cause, but I figured I could purchase a redirect from lagrancostanza.wordpress.com to tabeakatharina.com and be done with it.
Turns out that’s not how it works. I couldn’t register the domain with the redirect in place because of invalid domain mapping or something. I really have no idea. So now I have the domain I wanted, but every old link leads to a page that tells you lagrancostanza.wordpress.com is deleted. Sigh. It’s maddening. I could upgrade to a business account to download a redirect plugin, but I can’t afford that right now.
I might figure out a way, but for now I don’t have the time to read up on Weird Internet Things I Don’t Understand. Just thought I’d give a heads up in case anyone is wondering.
