Some news about my blog and its organization. Awards, the first birthday, presents for followers, and something more. In this section, you can read about blogging related to My Anasa.

Experience online

My dears,

I hope you liked my last post about Stobi, the archeological site in Macedonia. I still have some other things about my trip to Balkans that I want to share, but today I want to write something different. At the beginning of this week I presented my new website and through comments and direct messages some of you asked me more about my experience with a self-hosted website. I answered quickly to each question, but I think it is good to go a bit more deep into the topic.

As I already explained my tech skills are on a very low level and for that reason I got help from experts, but why I chosen to “update” my blog? First of all with a real domain and now a WordPress one it is easy to be found by my readers. Of course I could do it just using WordPress, but to customize my blog I wanted something different from the limited themes offered by WordPress.

I needed a different solution and for that reason I asked for an alternative. SiteGround is actually the best way on the market, because it is an hosting for WordPress. This means that I can have more features and tools to improve my blog (I am working on it step by step) but using a system that I already know and that was my “mate” for 10 months. It is easier to prepare new pages but also to give a new dress to my blog and to connect my social networks.

When I subscribed to SiteGround I had the chance to find different plans, with various rates in order to arrange the service given to the real needs of the blogger. I am a beginner and my audience is not big, so I don’t need to pay for something that I can’t use. That is the first element that I noticed about the platform, but it is of course not the only one. There is an high level for the security of the blog, to prevent the violations.

The staff is well prepared and it gives answers quickly, with a support in different languages. It is also possible to export the blog from WordPress to SiteGround with a simple click and then everything is ready to work on the new image of the pages. Also, this is important for a blogger, helps to increase the visibility online thanks to the SG CachePress. The provide is a co-manager of the website and so guarantee high performances.

This means to be fast during surfing the web and to be helped in Seo to be found by people during their web searches. To recommend SiteGround it is also WordPress, so this also convinced me about the value of the self-hosting platform. Anyway it is not necessary to use WordPress, even if you have a blog with another provider you can get benefits from SiteGround.

You can use different plugins to improve the blog with other services as YouTube, Google Analytics and many others, but the staff is always ready to give you assistance for any needs, not only related to the usability of the platform, but regarding all the aspects. Of course for the implementation of this new form of my blog I had the help of Self-Host.org, but now I am moving by myself and I can ask to the SiteGround experts when I need some advices. Automatically the update of the plugins installed are made by the platform, so the blogger don’t have to do anything else or to worry about it.

Thanks to SiteGround centers in three continets the quality of the service is always high also during the connection. You can try it and if you are not satisfy you can be reimbursed. This is another guarantee, as there is in WordPress platform, that helps you to see if the service is useful or not and you will not loose the money. In case you already have your own domain you can just move it to SiteGround without anyproblems.

The last thing that I want to “discuss” is related about advertisements. Some of your messages were mentioning this part. Of course I like to grow with my blog, also because it means that people like what I write and share and this makes me happy, but this is for me a passion, increased since the beginning, and not my job. So my goal is write for you sharing my experience and opinion and not to become famous and rich (if this could be really possible for me as beginner).

I will not avoid some ads, this because I can maybe earn some money to cover the costs of the blog, of the domain and so on, but this blog will respect you, you are my goal and you are important and precious for me. I am still learning and trying to to better and better step by step, but always with you, my dear followers and readers, in my mind.

Luxury and money

I am a luxury traveler, so mainly I share experiences about this type of trips. But among the luxury hotels and restaurants reviews, you can find something else. A lot of less known destinations, so cheaper. Some offers to save money. Because luxury doesn’t mean high costs. Thanks to the deals I select for you, it is possible to have great benefits for a cheap price. There is something more in my travel blog.

I prepared, I am going on to do it, some guides on “how to make money to travel“. On my travel blog, you can find some ideas to earn an extra income. Of course, working and being in legality. Certain activities to do in your free time will allow you to get some more cash. Maybe it’s your first step to explore the world, with or without luxury. Check out these examples: Food delivery, Woodworking, Web Marketing.

My Anasa

My Anasa, an Italian blog. Before to explain the name, I want to tell you about the logo. A cup for coffee is a symbol for Italy, where the Espresso is a must, and the gold means luxury. I have chosen, as the first logo of the blog the cup. Because it represents well the style of this blog.

To explain what Anasa is, it’s important to start from the Swahili language, spoken in many African countries. The meaning is luxury, pleasure, enjoyment, and sensuality. All the people around the world want to have pleasure, to enjoy and to try the sensuality of luxury. Use a Swahili word has, of course, a reason and it comes from a peculiarity. It was developed to create exchanges between Africa and Asia. It is open to influences for that. But it never loses its structure and connects all the people in the continent.

So you have some elements: coffee means that this blog is made in Italy, where luxury is excellence. The name of the blog comes from an old and important language, used to connect different cultures and to communicate luxury and pleasure together. So you should imagine easily the topic od Anasa, but to know more about the blog, there are questions and answers.

Who is “Anasa”?

An Italian guy with a big passion for luxury, always updated on the last news, who wants to share information and opinions, but also some hints.

What?

The blog has contents about luxury in all the aspects: some general information, news about lifestyle, hotels, restaurants, design and fashion brands, cars, services, wellness and all that is part of luxury.

Why?

There are a lot of blogs and websites belonging to luxury, but Anasa is going to mix news and direct experience with products and services. It’s a real journey inside the asana, where pleasure and luxury are meeting each other in a single word.

When?

Every day there are posts, news, and comments about events, new products, and luxury services.

Where?

Enjoy the reading!
