I’m about to move subscribers from the old domain host to the new one. The url remains the same, it’s just that the domain is now self-hosted.
Email subscribers will continue to receive email notifications of new posts as before, but WordPress.com followers will only see new posts in the Reader. They will not receive email updates unless they subscribe to receive those on the new site, which they can do via the Subscriptions widget at the bottom of the sidebar.
I’m a bear of little brain, and when I encounter a concept for the first time I need it to be explained in simple terms with very clear examples. If I can’t find such an explanation, I will attempt to write it myself and place it here.
Sometimes even if I do find a simple summary, I’ll re-explain it in my own words to consolidate my own understanding.
I make no claims for the accuracy of my understanding, and I welcome corrections and clarifications in the comments box.
With thanks to Martin Fowler, who suggested I write this blog.
I’m going to start by copying in notes I have made recently on various things, so there will be a flurry of posts to start with… and then who knows what’ll happen?
