Thank you & my apology

October 19, 2016

Good evening from Norway!

What an incredible news I got when I read the message on the picture above. Getting messages like this is making blogging so much worth doing. You guys always surprise me and I am so speechless when it comes to how things are working out on WordPress. I started my blog mainly for fun because I wanted to practice English and get network around the globe but I could never imagine that I would get such a good response as I have gotten. I just want to thank you all for your support and for your kind words. It is so inspiring to read all the comment and the good blogs here on the platform and blogging is not a duty but one of my main interests since it gives me so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your support!

Building a blog is all about trying out new things and that is what I have done. I may tried out too many things such as changing my page design too many times which I want to apologise for. I should have continued but I could not find the right blog identity. I have a domain on WordPress.com where the services are free but I have paid for the domain and there are a few things that is a little bit complicated. On WordPress.com everything is customised and I have to choose between different designs whereas on WordPress.org you can actually build it from the bottom and thereby get a more personalised look on the blog which I truly like. I have not decided yet what to do and I will use some time to come up with the decision that best suits me. The main difference between com and org is that org gives you the possibility to make things from scratch but it also requires a lot more energy and skills from you as well.

If you don’t know the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org you can see the difference on the picture below.

However, I have started on a course and to be honest I don’t have a clue what I am doing. I am trying to learn how the coding works. I will use some time before I make the decision since the coding is really complicated and I cannot learn everything in only a few days and I guess it will take a while to understand the systems.

You have probably noticed that I have used a lot of old pictures on my blog and I want to  apologise for that. I don’t have a camera here and I am using my mobile as a camera which is not very inspiring for me. Luckily, my father in law is coming to visit us very soon and he will bring a camera so that I can start to take some new pictures again weeee.

Is there anyone who uses wordpress.org and wants to give me some advice?

    I really am clueless on WP. I have just ordered “WordPress for Dummies” from the library! Well done on your growing site 🙂

        I don’t use wordpress.org (though I created my first website in 1997!!! there was no wordpress then of any kind). I use .com because when I started blogging, it was just to get going on a sort of Diary/hobby – the same kinds of feeling you express above. Followed by amazement – connections, joy … what a lot of good people and thoughtfulness and great writing and learning …
        I am still in a muddle over styles/ etc, sometimes I try to change, most of the time WordPress.com provides enough. I love them! Thanks for your thoughts, they echo some we have all shared.

    I have enjoyed following you, please do not feel pressured, you are doing well and when you relax and enjoy blogging you do your best, at least that is my discovery. Blessings.

      Thank you! I really enjoy blogging, but I always looking to do better. I put too much pressure on myself because I want to give my readers the best. Maybe I need to put less pressure on my self 🙂
      Thanks for reading!

    You are doing great! I’m happy for you. I also a bought my own domain name but did nothing except to transfer my wordpress content there (auisjournal.com). I do not have so much time to learn the stuff and I can relate with you. But your interest to keep learning will reward you, I am sure 😉

      Thank you 🙂 I think in the end I will have learned something hehe 🙂 You have a nice theme at you blog 🙂
      Thanks for reading!

    Hi Roberta, I self-host my blog and use wordpress.org. One thing to know is that you will lose the Reblog functionality if you move… that only works with wordpress.com blogs… as far as I know, at least.

      Thanks for the information! I didn’t know that I can lose the reblog button :/

    Courses are really good Roberta. But you will find that half of the thing you must have explored on your own. Thanks for this interesting post. Informative.

    Regards, CP

    I tried wordpress.org and it lasted 2 days haha. It was too overwhelming for me as I have been blogging for no more than a month. I went back to wordpress.com and I plan on trying wordpress.org again once I get a little bit more traffic on my blog.

    Like how you explained the differences side by side; Never knew much about it.
