Yeah, this is my first official post on WordPress, and I’ve been beside myself waiting to make it, so here it is:
Life blogging on Blogger.
I started blogging around May this year on Blogger. Well, Blogger was kinda nice. Once I figured out how to change my blog’s theme (after having used the default Blogger theme for more than a month), my blog started looking nice, even pretty.
On Blogger, there was little opportunity for community, meaning that till date, I don’t have up to ten comments on my Blogger blog – and I’ve made up to, like, thirteen posts! It’s not like there isn’t the ‘Comment’ option over at Blogger, it’s just that WordPress makes commenting look so easy and appealing that you’ve just got to when compared to Blogger.
I’ll soon be making a post on the ups and downs of Blogger when compared to WordPress (to save beginner bloggers the stress of beginning with Blogger), so I’ll narrate all my experiences in the post-to-be.
How did I know WordPress existed?
Um… I first found out about WordPress from a bunch of random articles I came across on the net. But I first knew that I could have a blog on WordPress from Evin’s blog, A Curly Sue’s Ramblings. Her blog was so beautiful ❤ ❤ ❤ that it made me ready to forsake Blogger and never look back.
But I dawdled on Blogger for a few more months, trying to see if any good would come out of it before I relocated. But alas! I was more than disappointed – that and I was a bit intimidated by the infamous intricacies of setting up a WordPress site. I spent some more time Googling on how to go about it till I finally got the decisiveness to take it on.
Baby steps on WordPress.
It took me about a week to get the site’s design done – once I’d figured out how to get a “. wordpress.com” site. I wanted my design to be a minimalist one, simple. And I hope it is.
From there, I had to then stuff the blog up with meat and bones, thus this blog post was birthed. I’ve also put in old posts from my Blogger blog here and there, but it’s unfortunate that I couldn’t move my previous views and comments. 😦 But no worries, I’m sure I’ll exceed my former comment and view count with this blog.
I’m still a beginner blogger, a toddler. But I’m optimistic that Olaedo will get positive responses.
Don’t hesitate to drop me a comment and tell me what you think about my blogging journey. I’d love to meet new people!
Thanks for tuning in. 😘
*And that’s a wrap! *
