I currently have a M.b.-hosted blog with a custom domain. I want to move to a self-hosted site with the same custom domain, where the new posts on the new site still appear on my M.b. profile. What’s the best way to do this?
The way I see right now is:
- Export the current blog’s contents
- Delete the blog
- Create my other self-hosted site and set the custom domain to point to that instead
- Verify that with M.b (by the way the link to the verification steps in the First steps doc is broken, not sure where that page moved).
- Add the new self-hosted site’s feed to Microblog
But that would (I think) mean that all my old posts are gone (if someone goes to micro.blog/]). Right?
Is there a way to do this so nothing changes in what appears on my profile page?
Would this move also lead to me losing the list of accounts I follow, or for those who might follow me now to not follow me anymore?
If this is explained in a pre-existing help doc, I’d appreciate a link Thanks.
