Although creating this blog was less than fun… I kept an open mind and positive attitude when creating it! The problem started when none of the free templates seemed aesthetically appealing to me. Not to mention they rarely let you customize them and I kept getting called a “cheater” for trying to customize my page! I still have NO idea why… My drafts would randomly delete without my permission, tags and pages would randomly be under a different folders, and pictures NEVER showed up where I wanted them too. #frustrating!
Finally, I figured out how to customize some of the colors of my blog, but still every time I tried to edit something it would bring me to a preview of my blog! WHAT?! There are too many editing options that are not available when using WordPress for free. To reduce confusion and complication they should just eliminate them all together.
I thought coming up with a concept for my blog would be the difficult part, little did I know they type of confusing website I was working with. I will be trying to use the app on my phone so see if that makes it any easier… However, now I am actually very excited about researching the content for my blog, but less than thrilled to have to actually use WordPress to publish the content. Speaking of content, I am going to need to use my holistic stress reducing methods just to relax myself after working on this! I am excited to explore and research more about the benefits of healthy living in order to develop my and abilities as a “blogger” as well as my knowledge of holistic living.
