I decided to self host as I thought in the long run it would be better.
Since I've changed the DNS etc I've lost the following though:
1. My share count for each post, which is really annoying. I can't find the old plugin to just try to install it. Arrgh what can I do?
2. When I do a post now, video content isn't embedded (it's just a link). What plugin do I need?
3. How do I view my notifications now? Have I lost all the people who previously signed up / liked my blog before?
As you can tell not enjoying the whole process :(
Very grateful for any help.
