Why I switched from Blogger to WordPress?
After over 10 years of blogging with Blogger I decided to make the leap to WordPress.
Wow. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for 10 years and have made $1.32 from ad sense. This might not seem like much but I’m really impressed with myself.
Blogging is definitely my passion project. Originally, I started blogging book reviews. That was neat. I really enjoyed those. I read so many books back then. How many? Maybe 3 – 5 books a week. Reading, though I don’t read as often as of late, is an escape. A time for me to forget my problems, jump into a world that isn’t mine, feel a kinship with some fictional characters and sometimes feel book comas after an intense read.
Readers are passionate about their books. Especially the individuals who read romance novels. For a while, authors would send me their books, before release date, for free so I would give them an honest review. I thought that was so cool. I wrote a great deal of reviews of books I didn’t pay for. But alas, there were a few books I couldn’t finish reading either because they were awful or life happened. So those stopped coming in.
Now, I like to blog about travel and beauty reviews mostly. Like today, I bought the Jeffree Star make up brushes set and beauty blenders which I’m dying to try out and give my honest review.
I felt I really couldn’t take my blog to the next level using blogger. I was loyal for so long. I want to learn, explore and expand my blog. Blogger is great, free and I learned so much while using the platform. Youtube was my best friend for learning new features or how to bypass the system a bit.
WordPress is a grown up blogger and I’m ready to have my blog grow the eff up.
Also, WordPress features includes an app which you can utilize on your phone. That’s. Freaking. Amazing. I can blog on the go! 🤯 (insert mind blown emoji here).
My blogger blog is still up, if you’d like to visit it, you can go to 1millionpageslater.com. That’s my baby, my pride and joy. Hopefully melisborednow.com can become my other baby and my other pride and joy too.
