Hello sunshines! 🔆 HOW ARE YOU ALL? HAPPY 2018! Today I am addressing my NEXT STEP. What is there to do now? It’s a new year and I’ve decided to get back into blogging as I want to SELF-HOST.

Image result for bluehostI’m thinking of going with BLUE HOST. It’s one of the recommended services by WordPress and honestly I don’t know much about self-hosting. I do know it costs money and I do know that I have much more freedom with my blog. I’ve always wanted to expand with my site and make it officially MINE so I am super excited to get started. However, Blue Host requires that you pay your service upfront. This is only a problem for me because I had not been saving previously so I have to wait until the beginning of February to set up my account with Blue Host.

This is actually okay with me as it gives me time just to solely create posts ahead of time. It also gives me time to think of a new creative theme, along with new headers, images, schemes, etc.. This is probably my favorite part of blogging so I am super excited to start creating again.

If anyone has any advice or comments about Blue Host or self-hosting in general, definitely let me know! I am a newbie when it comes to self-hosting, so any information will be valuable to me!

HOPE YOU ARE ALL HAVING A GREAT 2018!! I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST WITH AWESOME HEALTH AND MANY BLESSINGS! 💛

See you all in February! ✨

    • Thank you!!! I actually had a quick question about your blog if you don’t mind? I was wondering how you were able to have your own domain under WordPress. Are you using a Premium theme or are you self-hosted as well?

      • Of course not! I am not self-hosted, I am just using one of wordpress’ premium plans, which gives me a bit more media place and my domain name 🙂 It’s not too expensive and…well, to be honest, I am a bit scared of self-hosting for now, ahah 🙂
