You know, I'm up to 5 blogs now. Several, I'm not promoting as they are very niche oriented but my "babies" I promote quite heavily and write to daily. Which got me to wondering, "why don't I post to this, my first blog, more often?"
I have an answer to that question. It's because I'm using the blogger platform. Yes, I have gotten my own domain name but I'm still using blogger's platform & it drives me CRAZY. I used to love blogspot. It was so easy to use, even a non techy could set up a blog in just a few minutes!
Somewhere in the Fall though, during one of Blogspot's updates, my blog got all wacky on me. Now, it's a rare occurrence that I can write a blog post without something going wrong. Usually, when I publish it, half my post has disappeared. But I have had other issues too. And with Blogsot, there is no support so I'm stuck with a buggy blog. I did ask in the blogspot forums but no one could help there. So out of frustration, I just unconsciously started posting less and less to this blog.
So if you wondered why I went from posting almost every day to just several times a month, this is why. As much as a learning curve there was with getting used to Wordpress, I feel more comfortable with it now and don't have the same frustrations. I probably should figure out a way to transfer this to wordpress now. I know you can with blogspot blogs but it might be a bit more complicated with it being on my own domain too.
Anyway, if you'd like to check out my other blogs, I started a brand new one recently called "Saga of a Work at Home Mom" or http://sagaofawahm.com It's about my life as a single work at home mom but each day I will add a life tip or business tip.
And if you are a dog lover, check out "Bloggy Doggies" or http://bloggydoggies.com
And do keep checking back here. Since this blog is tied to my Cathy's Creations business, I don't plan on abandoning it. I'm gritting my teeth and forcing myself to deal with the blogspot issues and post twice a week. I think I can handle that much without going completely bonkers.
