Blogtober Day 8: Why I haven’t gone Self Hosted. Yet.


Made by logoMaker

If you’ve been a round for a while you will know that I was hell bent on going self hosted. And I have to admit, something for a blogger, I am shit at anything technical.

Whilst I am slowly getting better, I am yet to master some of the key elements which I feel like I need for my blog to progress. Google analytics, is something I just can’t master. I do understand it slightly more, after a few hours playing about with it.

WordPress. Is currently my babe! Yet, similar to Google Analytics, I was not in the slightest way confident in how to use it. Although, I am getting more and more comfortable with wordpress and I my doubts are slowly dwindling away.

As much as I am pretty pants at everything technical, what mainly stopped me is that I didn’t think I was a good enough blogger. Something that I now laugh at. The bloggers I have met on wordpress, have shown me that even if you think your a bit shit, others don’t. Sometimes you need someone else to believe in yourself, so you can too.

I’m not admitting defeat, one day I will be self hosted but as of right now, I am so happy on wordpress. I am learning so much to benefit both myself and my blog and I seriously can’t wait for you to see what’s coming.

  1. You are most definitely good enough to be a blogger! And to be honest whether you decide to go self hosted today or next year it won’t matter because those that love your blog will still read it either way regardless! X

  2. I’m so not very technically-savvy either. I bought my own domain but I don’t have the tech skills to go self hosted! I’ve been blogging altogether about 7 years and have only just bought my domain. At the end of the day, I don’t really think it matters if you enjoy it and you put out quality content which both of these you do!
