Spread the love

My dear followers and readers,

I started my blog adventure last January and now, after almost 10 months I decided to improve it and to do one step to upgrade it because of you. You are reading, liking and commenting my posts, so you are supporting me. Of course the numbers are not high according to the “market”, but for me each of you is so important and you are giving me a good sign that I am doing something good.

I worked to improve my posts, even do my English contains mistakes, with more pictures and more information about my travels and my experience with some products and services useful for my trips. I am still a beginner, but I am learning step by step. Meanwhile I decided that it is useful to customize my blog to facilitate the reading and now I think it is really better, especially fot its aesthetic form.

This is the beginning of a new life for my blog and for my activity online, because I have some more ideas to make it more attractive and usable for you. The last posts are on the first page, you can see easily titles and pictures, all my social pages are connected and now I am preparing the categories to divide the articles by topic and… well it is not a good idea to reveal all now.

My tech competences are on a very low level, but I really wanted to give a new dress to my pages and to gain new functions. I was lucky because I found the perfect service for my needs. I sent a request and they gave me assistance, first with a precise answer to my questions, then they guided me in the domain purchasing and at the end they worked directly on customization.

WordPress offers a lot of tools, but it is not enough, especially to personalize the pages, there are always limits. So thanks to Self-host I found the best way to develop my blog. I got a domain and then I gave some information about my intentions, my goals and my needs and then they started to work on it. In a very brief time I had the first draft and we finalized it with some more features.

I completed the migration from my former blog on WordPress.com and I started to post on the new site. The step was easy thanks to Self-host assistance and also because WordPress is integrated in SiteGround, the platform that I used to have a domain and a space where to put my blog. The service has a lot of positive elements, but I like to mention one of its strenghts: they answer via email almost in real time. They also kept me updated in each stage of the work.

Now it is your turn, any feedback from you will be welcome, because I want to improve the blog and of course it has to be interesting for you, that is why your advices are precious for me. Feel free to write to me and in the meantime enjoy to read my new posts. Now I am preparing some more articles about my last trip to Macedonia, because I want to share some other experiences done during my visit and then I have already new travels in my agenda.

    Amazing work so far… As a writer myself, I have been thinking a lot about self-hosting and monetizing my own little blog despite the challenge of not having a lot of traffic. My only advice to you is to keep doing what you’re doing! Your posts are great and honestly I am so happy for you making this crucial step in your blogging life. I wish you all the best and hope your traffic continues to grow.

      Dear Elaine, I really thanks you a lot for your comment and for the compliments. I think to update the blog to a self-hosting site was useful to overcome the limts in customize the pages and of course it is as well useful to have a domain. I think now it is easy to find my blog and to read it. I am trying to do my best and I am happy to receive your appreciation, but to improve the blog has a cost, so I started to think that monetize a bit can be helpful. Don’t worry, I really want to follow your advice, I don’t think that the money has to become a goal and I do not want to promote everything just to gain money. I want to try to recover the money that I have to spend for the blog, so if something is appropriate it is fine, otherwise it is not a need. My followers and readers are so important and I want to keep quality and build a relation with all of you, sharing my articles about my trips and making them useful and interesting. This is and it will be always my real goal. The rest is a good option since it can work together with the main reason to do this blog. Anyway my audience is small, so I don’t think to be so attractive for brands. I want to grow because it means that I am doing a good job, but of course it depends on what I post.

    Hey Anasa – (lovely pseudonym)
    Thanks for following my site, A Northwest Moment.
    After browsing your site, and resting on this post I would say, you make too many apologies!
    You are bilingual. Something I only aspire to be.
    Focus on your area of interest, your niche, your business. Let others sweat the tech for you.

    I look forward to seeing and reading more of your work
    Dave

      Hi Dave,
      thanks for your comment. Maybe you are right, but I really have to learn more, anyway according to my followers feedback I am not so bad in English: it is understandable. About tech I will surely let the others to explore it and to create tools that I can use. It is my only option now ๐Ÿ˜„ The pseudonim comes from Swahili language and it is a word that I put in relation with my travels and more in general to travelling.
      I will follow you and I hope to read new comments from you to my next posts.

      Hi Dave, thanks for your comment. My pseudonym comes from Swahili language and it is exactly the word that I use to describe my travels. About apologies maybe you are right, but I guess my weaknesses are obvious ๐Ÿ˜„
      Thanks for following me and I will be glad to read more feedback from you to my next posts.
      See you online,
      Marco
