Glamour and Giggles has gotten a makeover! From switching to Blogger to WordPress to purchasing my own domain, Glamour and Giggles has quite a few changes. I have wanted to make to do this for quite some time now and am so excited to unveil the newly revamped Glamour and Giggles!
So why switch from Blogger to WordPress? I knew at the back of my mind that I would be making this switch when I first started blogging years ago. With WordPress, you own your own website and have the opportunity to do more compared to Blogger.
So why did I not start out with WordPress? Simple – I wasn’t sure if I would keep up with blogging as long as I have. Hosting your own website isn’t cheap and it isn’t easy for someone who isn’t so great with all the technical things that come with starting your own blog.
I felt as if Blogger was limiting me in what I want to do in terms of blogging so I finally did all the research I’ve been meaning to for the last few months. After all that research, I ended up more confused than ever! I’m so thankful for my friend Julie over at The Salt Life Wife – she recently made the switch as well and was able to give me some great advice!
Over the past week, I bought my own domain through Go Daddy – hence the “glamourandgiggles91.com”, and self hosted with WordPress. I was able to easily move over all my past posts and pages with a couple clicks. I also got a brand new spanking theme which is a lot more user friendly both on the desktop and via mobile than my last one.
Overall, all this newness has got me so inspired to create new content! I have plans to publish new reviews, first impressions, resources and more! If you’d like me to go more in depth regarding my switch from Blogger to WordPress, let me know!
