Hey guys. I’ve been pretty lazy lately😅; in a way though. Well, I’ve been trying to understand some things and also trying to wrap my head around a confusing situation I’m dealing with at the moment. As you guys know, I upgraded to a paid plan and got my domain from WP meaning WP hosts my blog and everything. But, while doing some research yesterday, I found out that WP.com still has restrictions despite having a paid plan. A blogger talked about this issue but I didn’t really understand; unfortunately, now I do😅
WP still have some restrictions which unfortunately isn’t good for me because I can’t do what I want. So, in order To solve this problem, as it turns out that WP.org is the only WP platform without restrictions, I have to get hosting from another outside provider. I spent yesterday researching and try to understand everything which was a lot of work😐 and so stressful as well. Luckily, I finally found a solution but I’m stuck. There are two options;
1. I can ask for a partial refund from WP and get hosting for another provider which costs $47 from siteground; I heard it’s good as other bloggers got hosting from there. Or
2. I can pay for the hosting and leave the one I have with WP which cost me $35.88. But then again, I’m 19, I’m not a millionaire 😅 I have a budget and things to buy as well.
If I choose the first option, I’ll still remain on WP; but you can only comment on my post when you view it in your browser which isn’t a problem after all. If I choose the second, I’ll go broke😂 and it’s still the same as the first. But my biggest issue is with my theme! I just designed my blog; I can’t let it go so easily; it’s so pretty! I’ll have to do a lot of thinking. But to be fair, this isn’t really that big of a problem; I’m just making it seem that way for myself because it’s hard😅 So much work to do. I’ll keep you guys updated 😉
