About my new blog – pros and cons

Hello, my pretties! How are you all doing? Well, I hope!

First of all, Merry Christmas and happy holidays! If you don’t celebrate anything, like I don’t, happy end of year break!

With greetings out of the way, here we go. As those of you who read here often know, I’ve finally given up the battle against the dreaded block editor, and gone back to blogging on Blogspot. I won’t delete this blog, and I may drop by every now and then and post a little something, but my new blogging home is the address below:

https://livingabiteveryday.blogspot.com/

And now, the pros and cons of the change, because it’s important that I give as unbiased a report as possible.

Pros:

I already knew the workings, since my first blog had been on Blogspot, more years ago than I can (or want to) admit.

It’s easy to write – just start a new post, type your stuff, format and publish. No need to bother with blocks.

I can use a wide variety of themes for free, including making changes to the html code myself should I choose to.

If I choose to get the premium version, it’s a lot cheaper than WordPress. A lot as in, I can pay for 5 years of Blogspot premium with what WordPress (not even full premium) would cost me.

I like it better – that’s a big pro for me.

Cons:

Honestly, I don’t see many cons right now, since I gave up on trying with the block editor. I’d say the only ones I found were the two below:

Blogspot doesn’t have a ‘like’ button such as WordPress does.

I’ll have to start building up a readership and contact with other bloggers from scratch.

Well, I guess that’s all I have to say right now! I really hope I’ll see you there, but I’ll still be around here, liking and commenting on your blogs!

See you all soon!

  1. You could always use the free WordPress version to post links to each new blog on blogspot. That way you could still keep the “like” button and connect with WordPress readers. But do all the writing without the block editor.
