I’ve been toying with The Move (aka Blogger -> WordPress) for a while now but as a programmer I have two confessions to make.
- I hate not being able to code something myself
- I hate coding on WordPress.
I don’t know what it is, I used WordPress at my last job and if anything it made it worse. I find it so complicated for whatever reason – it just always goes over my head. However I just felt Blogger was too…kiddish. Now don’t be offended if you do use Blogger, I have used Blogger for around 4/5 years now and it’s been fantastic. However I just feel so much more accomplished with my self-hosted blog, tapping away at my keyboard on my bed.
I wanted to hack around and make a decent layout but honestly I just cba. Soooo I got the ever-so-popular Pipdig‘s help and downloaded a quick pre-made one which does the job perfectly (and looks pretty fresh if I say so).
So, what does this Switch signify? I want to blog again. I’m not purposefully running from this space, I genuinely have so many ideas knocking around in my head but it’s been impossible to find the time to sit, take loads of pics, write up content and schedule them. Now that the sun is up longer (hoooorah!!) I can actually sneak in a few photoshoots after work. While I do want to still do an abundance of my usual “hauls” and outfit posts, I really want to do more lifestyle posts too. I’m thinking of bringing my weekly summary back just to add a more personal touch but we’ll see if I can stick with it!
Baby steps for now.
If you’d like me to do a post on the Switch from Blogger to WordPress, let me know! It was a bit tricky but once you get the jist it’s a breeze!
