Yesterday was the Full Snow Moon whence i set the goal of finally updating my website and getting the wordpress/blog portion to work.
Since I’v been having trouble getting the wordpress scripts to work with my original webhost [for the past couple months], i decided to scrap the idea of attaching my psyche blog to my personal site and thought about registering another domain and signing on to hosting with another company. I did a reading on this and as you can see below, the answer was Duh
|Left Side: new domain name and new host||Right Side: not getting a new domain or host|
|Stop fighting with the problems and you will see your way out of the mental deadlock|
So i looked at the price of registering the domain through wordpress, then i searched on google about wordpress and found out that there was something called wordpress.org. i was using wordpress.com, so i read about some pros and cons to each platform listed on this page. I went over to bluehost and compared the price of purchasing a domain and premium account on wordpress.com to the cost of getting an account with bluehost. After going to the second menu i realized that the cost was pretty similar and i could create multiple websites on there! So I decided to purchase hosting with bluehost.
I started web work at 11:30pm even though i had planned to work on my website as soon as i woke up (i was out and my desktop computer was in the house), so after importing and spending time picking a theme and customizing it, i called it a night around 2:30am and went to sleep.
- having a way to work on website remotely would be nice : solution use that secondhand ipad 1 i have stored away
- email questions to webhost customer service as soon as possible
- http://www.wpbeginner.com/ which is GREAT for all kinds of wordpress tutorials
- https://www.bluehost.com/ for the good price and easy to use interface
This day was a day of learning in which i let go of the turmoil and grew.
I will go back to looking at all those wonderful tutorials on http://www.wpbeginner.com/ to add more content to this site!
