It has been a month since I posted a blog, and there’s a very good reason for that.
I am a bad blogger.
I mean, there are actually quite a few factors that go into it. It isn’t just procrastination. There are mental, emotional, pandemical, and many-other-ical reasons. But there is also a procrastination element to it. And that’s mostly because I detest the WordPress interface.
It’s slow, and awkward. I can be typing and I’ll be five sentences ahead before the first word appears on the screen.
I have considered moving to a different site many times. With all the adverts on YouTube for Wix and SquareSpace, there’s definitely interest. But I have so many posts and pages on here, and I know it’d involve a lot of work.
The biggest thing holding me back is the domain name. I pay WordPress so that my blog can be CraftedByColette.com rather than craftedbycolette837.wordpress.com (although I think you can type that in and it’ll still take you to the right place).
If I move to Wix or SquareSpace, do I lose my domain name? Will I have to copy and paste all my blog posts?
If anyone has any experience with them – or any other blog hosting site – please let me know.
In the meantime I am trying to get some blogs up. I have more than a dozen projects that are ready to be written up and posted – including a bunch of Christmas posts that never went up. I’m still trying to decide if I should post them late, or save them for this Christmas. Again, let me know what you think.
