I had announced a couple of weeks back on social media that this blog, Mummy On My Mind, is now in fact self hosted! *Woohoo!* This is me officially declaring it, and chatting to you about why I have taken this step.
To be honest, it was a long time coming. Though WordPress is wonderful in itself, I wanted more freedom with the creativity and ease with which I blog. Being a creative person, I knew that I just had to get myself into the world of Plugins and other such fancy tools. The only problem was of course that I was not as technical literate as I would like to have thought. Words such as html, php, domain and many other such terms simply flew above my head. Thankfully, I had a tech savvy cousin at hand who came to the rescue and helped me figure it all out. This was an impossible task without him.
I am slowly learning the ropes of Blog Admin and trying to familiarise myself with all the different things available at my finger tips. Almost a year into blogging, I have already learnt SO much and I am eager to explore it even more. I have come across a lovely supportive blogging community both in person and on the internet, and in UK as well as UAE, and I know there’s much more of that to come.
I hope that in the next coming weeks, you will find many new shiny buttons, layouts and creative touches to this blog, whilst maintaining my love of writing. If you have any suggestions for plugins or other various blogging tools, please feel free to let me know. Similarly, if there is a broken link or something not quite working as it should, I would appreciate it very much if you would let me know. After all, this is very much a learning curve for me!
Here’s to a new chapter in the life of Mummy On My Mind… *clink*
