Self Hosting can be a complete and utter pain in the you know what. Over the past couple months, you may have noticed I’ve been a little inactive and haven’t posted since May. The only post I have available on my site is my Moving to Australia post, as it’s really the only post I’m proud of.Minh Pham
Creating a site I was truly proud of is another priority of mine. If blogging is going to be my passion then holy cow, you bet I’m gonna try and give it 110% – hence why I’ve disappeared off the face of the blogging community.
When I first created my site, I started out like any other teenager blogger – with a good ol’ Blogger account, and then moving to a WordPress account. Now almost three years later, I am self-hosted and making a brand new fresh start. And thus begins the rant of Why Self Hosting Is A Pain.
To put it short, sweet and simply – hosting has just been such a pain because the support has been pants. Absolute rubbish. At this stage, I am merging my site with another company who should be much better. To be honest with you, I never find it easy communicating over the phone, and when that is the only support system of a company I really do not want to know.
Where Am I Now?
So, gradually I have been working my way back into the likes of looking for post ideas and finding other bloggers to follow, as well as working with the wonderful Ellie from SocialStylings. She has been a saving grace and I cannot wait to get started with the new techniques she has taught me.
This finally leads me on to why I am so excited to finally be having a fresh start at this blogging thing. Over the past few months, I have really lost motivation and that creative drive – but now it’s back and I cannot wait to get started.
I purchased a theme yesterday from the wonderful folks at Munich Paris Studio, and have installed it and I am ready to go.
I hope you’re as excited as I am for this new adventure.
