So many of you have seen the transformation from my old blog to this new one. As I have changed over, I have been updating you on my progress, whether it be positive or negative aspects of changing over from a WordPress.com site to a .com site.
The reason I decided to make the move was so that I could monetize my site. I won’t lie, if I can find a way to make some passive income while doing what I love, I’m going to look into it.
After a lot of thought, I have decided to change the theme of this site. I know it may seem crazy, I mean the site is looking pretty good and a lot of hard work went into it.
The reason I need to change the theme is because the only area that has a widget area is at the bottom of the home page. Not ideal when you are trying to do a little advertising. I thought maybe I would just have a products page, but I have a lot of work to do to make that page a good-looking, functioning site. In the mean time, I really have no good place to advertise.
A word to the wise, if you are thinking about going to a .com, make sure you have mapped out what you want on your site and then compare it to the options a theme has. I really thought I had my site mapped out well. I figured I had more options for placement of ads. I had a feeling early on that I might be making a mistake. I was so overwhelmed with all of the things I needed to do to set the site up, that I ignored that feeling that my theme might be wrong.
If you are reading this blog and it looks a little different, it’s just me making some tweaks. Everything should be back in place fairly quickly. Thankfully, I have copied all of my widget codes and pages so if something gets lost, I have a copy.
In the meantime, I would like to offer you a new opportunity. It’s my way of saying thanks for all of the support. Please go to the Guest Post page for more information.
Thanks for your patience and understanding. 🙂
