Woah. This is different. I have – a theme? A blog that doesn’t look like it came straight out of a factory? I don’t know if you’ve noticed (I mean honestly, you have no reason to have noticed) but my blog is a little different. I’m partway through migrating my blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. This means that I have to pay a little for hosting (it’s only $11.99 a year though) and I have a little more control over what my blog looks like.
WHY DID I MOVE?
Honestly, I wanted to get a little more serious with my blog and I feel like I wouldn’t be able to do that if I didn’t have full control over my blog. I’m a very visual learner, and I couldn’t hack it with the standardised themes that wordpress.com offered. While I am a visual learner, I’m not the best designer and so I wasn’t able to make my blog look aesthetically pleasing. I mean, it was alright but it was just alright. Nothing special. It was so average, that it was making me cringe a little bit.
However, I adored the community and the notification system – especially after coming from blogger. It was just so incredibly rich with comment alerts, likes and conversation that I actually felt like I was a part of something. I definitely wanted to keep that feeling, so I opted to continue using WordPress but start paying for my own domain and hosting. You’re looking at the result right now.
IS THIS YOUR (BLOG’S) FINAL FORM?
No. I’m such an indecisive person that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to say this is it. I’m happy. I know for a fact that I’m going to be changing my theme countless times in the next week, and I hope that it won’t annoy you too much! I know that I’m not exactly a big name in blogging, but I appreciate all of you that do read me and I would hate to have my indecisive nature scare you off. I’ll get it sorted soon, promise!
SO, A CLICKBAITY TITLE AND A SHORT POST
Whatever will I do next? Let me know if you think I made a good decision or not… I always find moving my content so stressful. I did it once with blogger to WordPress, and it almost made me want to stop blogging altogether. UGH. Hopefully, I’ll get through it though.
