“What would your life look like without today’s obstacles in front of you?”
― Jerry Gladstone
I actually nearly didn’t start this blog, if you can believe it. I’m a classic introvert and my mental health issues provides me with more than enough excuses to lock myself away from people and “protect myself”
I started this blog as an almost online diary and I still see it like that in some ways. Don’t gt me wrong, I’m not about to get all nostalgic on you since my blog has only been going since Dec 17! I have noticed now though that I also view it as a hobby and a social source. I have made a few friends/acquaintances in these short 3 months and I have been lucky enough to receive a handful of emails from people wanting to chat to me about all sorts of things.
When I started this blog I had a very rigid plan in mind and I’m really glad I didn’t stick to it! After one of my usual lunchtime chats with Mr Fire, I’ve decided to stop working on the Fashion Blog and put my time towards other things. I was spending an astonishing amount of time on it and only getting 60 views a day. It was a lot of effort and I was solely doing it to get money. I think that was the problem.
I love that this blog doesn’t make money and probably never will. Less pressure you see! Surer I’ll offer affiliate links if I’m bloggiing about something anyway but only if I really use it and find it profitable. I wont be listing a tonne of Amazon links to products I’ve never bought.I like to think that
if when I make it to FIRE that people like me can visit this blog and follow along. Hopefully they wont copy my mistakes!
So here comes the part were I ask you all to chip in so I can upgrade my current free WordPress account. JOKING! Sorry couldn’t resist! But seriously I am thinking of upgrading my current account and I’d love peoples advice/guidance. I think I have settled on the WordPress Premium account for now:
I looked into Blue Host as I think Mr Money Mustache it, but I couldn’t justify that amount of money for a hobby.
I also need a really simple site as I’m not really techy. The plan is to use my Matched Betting profits to pay for the first year on the Premium plan.
If you have a blog, which platform do you use?
