Over the last year, my efforts to do my travelblog have been hard and other than the writing and some of the feedback I get, not especially rewarding. I’m thinking of leaving the webhosting service that I currently use, which gets no love on Google, and just keeping my URL and writing here on my wordpress.com service.
Keeping a dedicated site that gets no hits for $200+ per year is not worth the effort. Not when there are free services. I mean, hey, they don’t monetize, but neither does my site. Also, my independent site messes up photos, makes everything too big, and isn’t very user friendly.
So, fuck it.
If anyone has suggestions or reasons why I shouldn’t just move everything to a free site, please feel free to let me know. The blog has been the most frustrating part of this whole process. Not the writing. Just the service. I am not a fan.
