As you know I’ve been contemplating the future of my blog. The name of the blog, to self host or not. It has been weighing on my mind quite a bit and I think it is part of the reason I haven’t posted much.
I have decided on http://www.mainerchick.com because I couldn’t think of anything else I liked and no one gave me any suggestions. It kind of explains the blog loosely, a chick from Maine. It is all about me (a chick), Maine, and anything else that might cross my mind.
With that decision down, I moved on to one of three options… 1. Buy the domain name & tie it to my existing blog. 2. Upgrade my blog to a WordPress Premium for $99 a year. 3. Convert my blog to a self hosted site and spend quite a bit of money (I can’t afford) to do it & then maintain it. Option two is sitting in my WordPress cart right now. I’ve been looking in to option three, which I’ve discovered would be far to expensive and daunting of a task for me at this point in time. I’m not a business, I just want to share my story with people. If later on there is an opportunity to make money from this, then I will reevaluate then.
Now is the opportunitiy for me to take my blogging to the next step. Redesign, change my categories, who knows what other changes and surprises are coming.
