I am now trying to run my sciTunes biz full-time. I quit my teaching job moved my family 14 hours to Indiana and am trying to make a go of this. The current focus is to create HTML5 games for my website that support the music-based science curriculum I created (one down 10 to go!). I have a few more games that I started awhile ago that need to be polished up quite a bit but I should have a few more science games up soon. Once that is done and I have met a few other obligations (I'm not going to let you down, Ian!) I have a dozen or more non-educational games that I will publish under my other business "Snow Day Apps." Anyways, I thought it was time I had a decent website. I decided to try wordpress and now I can't believe I ever bothered to learn HTML or CSS (though I have used a bit of it here and there to modify things a bit). Anyways, thanks for letting me ramble.

I set the site up at sciencetunes dot com so that my normal site would not have to be down while I worked on the new one. But now I am not quite sure how to switch a wordpress site over to a new domain. So for the time being I am just redirecting people to the new site.

    Looks really good, very professional.

    Is it hosted by wordpress or a locally installed version of wordpress on your host?

    Thanks, Stu. I use a company called start logic to host my site and they have a one button setup for wordpress. Then I just login to my admin dashboard and go from there. It was pretty easy. There are tons of cool free plugins that allow you do all kinds of things.

    in which case then they should be able to change your A record to the folder where wordpress is installed. That will avoid the need for a redirect. (also ask them to change the 'www' CNAME to the same folder).

    GOOD LUCK - brave move - I admire you....

    I'm so very close to doing the same myself. Have just taken a contract for 5 months that should fill up the bank account, so hopefully Feb/March next year....

    I too have a family - what a financial burden eh! But live is all about taking risks.... it would be oh so dull if we didn't...

    I'm sure you're venture will be a great success.
