All good things must come to an end and my experiment over at my Blogger – A Veteran Runnah blog is now over – a week earlier than I planned.
To be quite blunt, I had to make a choice and with the time/money that I have invested in this self-hosted WordPress.org blog, loosing that much money and work, changing back to Blogger didn’t seem like a good choice now.
Blogger honestly felt more comfortable for me to use. Once I got my theme setup the way that I liked it, there was no back-end management to worry about, I could just focus on my writing. I don’t feel that way with my WordPress.org blog, I feel that I should be learning more about the back-end management stuff, it almost feels like there is something that I am missing and it is going to bite me square in the ass if I don’t find out what it is.
That sense of missing something has been prevalent since I moved to self-hosted back in late October and I just can’t seem to shake it. I guess that is why I wanted to try out Blogger again and see how I felt there, I kind of wish that I hadn’t tried Blogger out again, because in many respects, I liked being back there – a lot, but I didn’t like the idea of completely starting over – yet again either.
The reality is that
my annual renewal for this site is in a couple of days and I had to make a decision based on what is best for Harold the blogger, versus Harold the old crotchety guy, who just wants to run and then write about it.
Hmmmm maybe I am getting closer to being the old crotchety guy than I thought, but not quite yet. I think there is still a lot room to grow here at A Veteran Runnah and I can be crotchety heah as well as I can other places 🙂
So here is being back to my own self-hosted blog WordPress.org blog, whatever I am “missing” heah, I just hope that when I finally do figure it out, that it isn’t anything all that serious. If it is, I have a back up plan in place and a blog already setup to take its place, only this time it will be on Blogger.
