In the past few weeks, I’ve been working on moving my little space to a self-hosted domain. Of course, as a person who has ZERO idea on how to self-host & what not, this wasn’t an easy decision.
There were several reasons why I made this choice: Firstly, while wp.com offers the option of simply giving me a domain name, I figured that the long-run costs would exceed that of self-hosting. Next, with more reads & followers, I figured it’d be a good time to update the space & give myself the option of having more customization. As much as wp.com offers beautiful free themes & widgets, a self-hosted blog using the wp.org Jetpack allows me to have awesome plug-ins & a whole lot more customization. Also, I didn’t want to build up a whole lot of subscribers to my wp.com & then have to shift them over (I can’t actually do that so they’ll have to do it themselves… a whole lot of trouble). Finally, my Facebook Page has reached that 1000 likes mark. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me, be it my friends, family or just fellow bakers & recipe lovers! (Of course, I wouldn’t want it to be stagnant at 1000 likes – do share the love if you enjoy reading this hehe)
