Hello new faces!
I made the decision to move my blog over from it’s former host to WordPress on a whim. Honestly, there wasn’t much thought behind the decision besides the fact that WordPress is a more well-known platform. After dealing with the dismay and heartbreak over not being able to get my usual username/url (it’s not even being used, it’s just reserved!), I opened up a fresh, new account and started exploring.
Upon opening my account, I knew I was going to like it here – I love the fact that this isn’t just a blogging platform – it’s more community based. I can visit people’s profile, read about them, follow them, etc. I’m a huge believer in the importance of online communities, and in my approximately 3 hours of actual activity on WordPress, I’ve gotten more attention and felt more welcome than I did in 8 months on my former host. Though I suppose a good reason for that is due to the fact that I had a bunch of content ready to throw up and republish, but I’d like to think that another reason is that y’all are just such nice people!
I’m looking forward to getting to know the community and sharing some thoughts with you guys. Thanks for welcoming me with such open arms.
