Making A Grown Up Blogger Decision

I have no idea what I'm doing

I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog over the last week.. And I have some news.. I made a bit of a grown up blogger decision, with a fair bit of pushing from Tracey from One Frazzled Mum and Phil from Public Void Apps .. I’ve gone self hosted & moved over to!

I’ve still got a LOT to learn about this website stuff but I am remembering little bits & pieces and learning as I go and I seriously can’t thank Phil & Tracey enough for their help

I’m still looking for THE theme and keep tweaking things and changing my mind but I’m so impatient and excited I just couldn’t wait to share it with you all!

So what do you think so far? Do you have any tips or improvements you think I should make? Any theme suggestions? My site is for my reader’s and I am a bit of a noob haha! Providing it has some purple I’m happy 😉

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

    Well done! I just went self-hosted too, and after spending several days yelling at the computer screen, I finally feel like I might be getting it sorted! #KCACOLS

      Now I'm calming down and I haven't broken anything I'm starting to enjoy it.. somehow seems easier? haha x

    Congrats on moving over! I'm a noob too but read just enough to know that starting off self hosted would prevent the headache of a later move. Looks great to me :) #KCACOLS

      Ooh thats a good idea! I probably could have stayed on my free site for a while yet but now I'm quite pleased it's all moved over 😊 x

    Woo! Being self hosted rocks! I use Genesis framework for my blog - it's absolutely great but does cost a few ££. WordPress 2016 theme was pretty good when I used free ones though - no junk code and because it's a WordPress theme there's lots of help available. Xx

      Ah Tracey did help with genesis but Izzy decided to delete it on my phone along with a ton of songs, emails, texting people... 🙈😂 I do need to learn a bit more about coding aswell as finding a slightly better (more purple) theme xx

    My only comment is that you can't see your full tag line in the purple header

    Congratulations on your 'Grown Up' blogging decision! I'm still looking for the right theme, so tell me when you find it! I've hated mine since about 2 weeks in, but I'm also a bit scared of changing for fear of losing all the plug-ins etc. All advice/hand holding very welcome! #KCACOLS

      Aw thank you! It's so hard to fine THE theme isn't it!? I don't have to worry about deleting anything, my 2yo did that on my first day of playing around hahah xx

    Well done! It is a big decision; I went self hosted not long ago and I'm still trying to get used to what I want from my blog! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday!

      Thank you! I'm definitely still trying to work it all out & now struggling to write 😬 trying not to stress about it though.. Hopefully I'll find something to write about soon! X
