Upgrade or not

This one is a short one. I had WordPress.com for several years now. I went from an unpaid plan to a paid one, back to unpaid and again to a paid one.

Since I have upgraded, I have noticed that I do get more exposure, I have got more subscribers and I do have an access to the Help Desk (which I’ve not used). But is it really such a big difference from the unpaid one – I have to say that there is not a big visible difference whatsoever. Maybe if I upgrade then I will see a bigger difference? But frankly, I do not have the extra funds or the patience. When the times come, I will go back to the unpaid plan and this blog will stay the same – a tiny little blog with some of my list and ideas.

There is one more thing I don’t like, and I have to apologise for this. Every time I publish, there is a notification in your Inbox, whether I like it or not. I myself don’t like full Inbox, so I know how it feels. I did try to cancel the notification and let the subscribers decide, unfortunately, it is not possible. This just adds to my overall feeling. that WordPress.com is just too expensive and too controlling.

My new blog is in on a different platform, and I will let you know, how it went. I do need it to age a bit before I make any conclusions.

So that is all for today, have a lovely spring, dear friends 🙂

The truth is, that blogging is hard

Questions I am trying to solve: Can a "one-person business" survive? Does it have a chance in today's world? Is it sustainable for more than a few years? Is it something that can work long-term? In my blog, I am mainly creating lists with tips on how to avoid numerous burnouts while working full-time (and hoping to retire early hahaha).
