You guys, I finally did it, I decided to self host my website!! As a self proclaimed commitment phobe, purchasing my own domain and deciding to self host has always been mildly terrifying for me. The terror stems from a mix of a commitment lasting more than 3 months and me having no idea where to even start with self hosting or the blogging lingo. But I did it! And I do have to say, wordpress and bluehost made it pretty easy. I mean, I was struggling at points with a few things, scrolling endless forums and scouring youtube videos, but I’m so much happier self hosting as there are many more options and plugins to use. My favorite feature of my new site is my nomadic world map!!! I’ve been meaning to buy a giant world map to hang on my wall and pin where I’ve been for a few months now, so this is definitely the second best thing.
As far as my content goes, I’ll continue to post about wanderlust, travel adventures, health & wellness and hopefully some expat blog series! If you used to subscribe to my old site, please subscribe here as well…I’m not sure how to transfer subscribers (read: still technology challenged). Also, I just created a Facebook page for my new blog, so show some love and like it if you want! I’m so excited about the new blog!! Let me know what you think! I hope you like it!
