I managed to migrate over WordPress subscriber to my self-hosted blog so no need to worry now! However you’d still need to be an email subscriber if you want to reap the benefits of subscriber-only bonuses.
Just a few days ago I managed to make the transition from wordpress.com to wordpress.org (hooray!) and there’s been some big changes to my blog as a result. You’ll also notice that there will be no further updates here, only to my “new blog” at http://www.effsgamingblog.com which is now self-hosted. Due to the transition, I have lost all of the people who have followed the blog over the past two months which of course is somewhat of an annoyance! If you do take an interest in my blog, I recommend you visit the link I posted here and subscribe to us (which is totally free!) by entering your email instead. This way, you’ll receive notifications of new posts and subscriber-only benefits (which we’re working on!).
