Hi there! I hope you’re doing well. Happy Saturday to you! ❤ For this post, I have decided to feature a lovely blogger I know in a new type of spotlight! My good friend, Oxria, recently went self-hosted (you can find her new site here!), and I can’t tell you how happy I am for her! She has been wanting to do this for a while, and I must say that her new domain is absolutely wonderful. ❤ I know that it would make her so happy if you could check out and subscribe to her new blog! I promise you, it will be worth it to see her posts show up in your Reader! She shares her beautiful art, gorgeous photography, and she’s a budding vlogger, too – there’s no way I could dislike any of what she shares.
The topic of this post is on Oxria’s going self-hosted experience! She was very sweet and answered some of the questions I had about how it worked for her to switch domains, and I’m really excited to share those informative answers with you today. Make sure to let us know in the comments below if her story has encouraged or inspired you, and I’m sure she’d love to answer any questions you have! Let’s get right into this!
Bloggers Going Self-Hosted –
1. Why did you decide to go self-hosted?
The reason why I decided to go self-hosted is because I wanted to have full control of my blog and the thought of my blog just being oxria.com sounded so cool to me! 🙂
2. Which host are you using?
3. Was it easy to make the switch? Why or why not?
4. Which aspects of having your own website
are you most excited about?
5. Is there anything you’re still figuring out?
6. What are some posts coming up
that you’re excited about writing and sharing?
7. Would you recommend that other bloggers
go self-hosted, too?
“I definitely think everyone should read about the differences between a free blog and a self-hosted blog before deciding whether or not to make the switch.”
I’d like to thank Oxria for collaborating with me on this post, and a huge thanks to you for reading it! I love seeing what bloggers who go self-hosted accomplish on their new websites, because customization and having your own “brand,” so to say, is really exciting.
If you are a blogger who has also gone self-hosted,
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for a chance to be spotlighted on one of these posts!
