I recently moved my entire blog over to this domain. Basically, I wanted more access to plugins, themes, and general creative freedom. I expected it to be a bit more challenging than a regular wordpress account, but in all honesty, it’s been a lot harder to get used to than I thought. The themes and plugins themselves are easy to use, but there are so many choices and emails to sign up for and most of the time, my site won’t show up when I search it. On top of that, the support I’m getting there isn’t adequate to answer the questions I have.
I re-started this blog to promote creative endeavors, and to get feedback from like minded people, in hopes of eventually self publishing my book and sharing it here first. But how do I do all this of my site doesn’t show up for others? How do I receive feedback and connect with other writers and artists if my website isn’t showing up? Because of this, I’m questioning my choice to switch to a self hosted site.
What would you do in my situation? Do any of you have experience with wordpress.org? Which one do you think is better and why? I’ll appreciate all comments and insights you can provide.
