So I switched to WordPress a few months ago, after years hosting my blog through Google’s Blogger… I finally took the leap and jumped onto the WordPress bus. It’s taken a little while to get used to the changes, importing all the content I wanted on my site and getting it all settled and stable but I think I’m ready! My blog is up, I’ve finally now got a proper blog email (my last provider made it impossible to set up a domain email).
There are a few reasons why I made the switch, and I just wanted to share my experience with you guys… just in case anyone is considering moving their blog!
My blog is now hosted through Siteground, I also moved my domain and that is now through 1+1. Just to be completely transparent, the move has so far cost me £58. This covers all of my costs for the year, my hosting and domain are billed annually and so I will be charged £40 a year to keep my blog up and running (the other £18 was for my theme which is by Sky and Stars) For the service I’m getting and how my blog looks now… I’m happy with this service! But totally appreciate we’re all working on different budgets and have different commitments and priorities!
