The price of a self-hosted WordPress blog is too high- not because of the cost in dollars, but because of the loss of the community I share with other bloggers.
I paid for and set up my own hosted WP blog at a very clever domain name. I figured I’d transition away from this one, and enjoy all the new features I would have, at a fraction of the price I’d pay on wordpress.com.
Buuuut, I miss my ‘friends’. My tags and posts don’t register with the reader on wordpress.com, and people can’t follow me the same easy way they did before, or ‘like’ posts.
I have come to a decision- I will abandon the blog I started offsite as a replacement to this one.
On a brighter note, I have learned more about using WordPress. Especially useful for making things easier to read on my site, is the ‘read more’. I feel silly for all my super long posts, stretching miles and miles down readers’ screens.
I will be revamping, restructuring, expanding some things, and pruning others, over the holidays. I’m a little giddy about doing it. 🙂
