Did you know that support for Joomla 2.5 ends this month? well if you've just updated to 2.5.28 then you'll see a banner across the top of the admin page telling you so.

So now's the time to consider upgrading / migrating to Joomla version 3.

There is this helpful migration article on the Joomla site and it's wise to follow it's advice and plan for your migration, there's no joy in trying to fix a broken upgrade and if you've never taken a backup before, now is the time to backup all the website files and directories AND the database. A migration is needed if you want to benefit from the regular updates to the Joomla core, which of course include bug fixes and security updates.

The only risk to your site during a migration would be if modules you have installed (free or purchased) are not version 3 compatible. As the article points out, planning is the best way to avoid disappointment.

If you feel that this task is either too much or beyond your knowledge levels, then feel free to contact me for a free quotation to do it for you. I've migrated quite a few Joomla sites in my time both from 1.5 to 2.5 and even from Mambo to Joomla 3. So it's definitely possible.
