Bad Blogger – Time for a Change?

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.

  1. Im new to blogging, and Im following a blog-along this month so I am learning LOADS. my page was wordpress, and now its a wordpress hosted page and my domain is held by godaddy. As a new blogger, I would say avoid WIX. I have been having so much trouble with them for commenting, and I am not the only one. its difficult to sign up to comment, I’ve ended up installing an app just so i can comment and now they are nagging me to host a page there. I havent seen anyone in the blog using squarespace so no comment for that sorry.
