To start this post, I am going to hit it off with this piece of information: I AM DEFINITELY NOT NEW TO BLOGGING but I am definitely NEW here and its wonders. At first, I was kind of hesitant to know that this helps you and your blogging career by earning money. Everything seems so complicated here. All these new icons and buttons, so to say. This community too! It feels like I’m one step away from everything here.
Please be good to me!
Anyway, there are… Hmmm… I can’t exactly pinpoint how many reasons there are, but let’s start this post off why I was disappointed with my first domain where I got to practice HTML codes and the like.
1.) The previous blog site I was in, always seems to be down. And every time there are reports or complaints regarding that matter, the site’s support team’s response to address it is slow. Forgive me, but yes, it is slow. Sometimes, they won’t even respond at all. One of the many reasons that makes a blogger stay, is all the help and support they can get. I don’t know with you guys, but for me, that one factor is very important.
2.) For confidentiality reasons, let’s give the previous blog site the code name: Site X. I’ve always wanted my own domain name. I am willing to pay the price per year if I have to. But what stopped me from doing so in SIte X is the countless numbers of complaints I’ve read online regarding their downtime. Comments such as ” I bought the $99.00 package and all I get is this downtime.”, ” I’m wasting my money on this site. This made me regret so much.” and ” Warning for those bloggers who are willing to go premium, NEVER, I mean, NEVER use this site. Downtime always.” Such negativity you know. Whelp.
So far, these are the things that made me think things twice.
Happy blogging ya’ll!
