I keep a website for my hobby/obsession - homebrewing.  www.singingboysbrewing.com  I started a number of years ago, using a Homestead template and its been great.  But it definitely looks dated and I want a better blogging option for it, as well a mobile version.  

Am I better off just starting from scratching and rebuilding the website from the ground up, or is it possible to take my current content and transfer it to a new template?  

Thanks in advance!

Using a new template deletes everything on the site, so you can't really transfer. If you create a new site, it will be assigned our newest Websitebuilder software and has updated templates, so I would say yes, you are better off starting from scratch on this.

Thanks, Drew, I'll create a new site, using the create a new site tab/button.  

I want it to have the same name and domain as the current site (www.singingboysbrewing.com).    What's the best way to do that?  Delete the old site and then build the new one, or start the new one and then add the domain name.  Or?  

Thanks again!

Start the new site while the old one runs. I linked the instructions in my previous post. When done, it is an easy matter to change the domain to the new site.
