Running a blog is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable things that you can do. After all, what could be better than spending your time writing about the things that you love and that you’re really passionate about? Of course, most of us live pretty hectic and full lives so the idea of setting aside a lot of time and effort to work on something that really doesn’t function as much more than a hobby can be kind of difficult to justify, but do you want your blog to be more than a hobby?
What if you wanted to take your blog and turn it into something more than just a hobby?
What if you wanted to take that passion and turn it into a career?
Well here are a few things that you need to do if you want to get started.
I have finally taken the plunge to go self hosted. Little me with my tiny blog in a world with gazillions of other blogs. Fighting the way through for decent page views, visitor numbers and of course doing everything known to man to try to increase my DA.
So this is my account of what it’s like to go self hosted and why I did.
It’s been over 14 months since I started blogging. I chose to go on blogger as it was very simple to set up for a newbie like me. I don’t have a lot of web experience so the simpler they better.
Now 14 months later I felt as if I had out grown my blog. I wanted to add bits that you are unable to do on blogger. During my 14 months there I have changed my them and header design a few times but you are just limited with what you can do.
