SOMETHING NEW AND SOMETHING OLD

First of all: Thank you so much for all your amazing comments on my feature
You, guys are the best! I feel grateful to have such a superb public like you!
As they say: "Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still." 

And since I hate standstill I've been thinking about moving lately a lot, especially 
concerning blogging! One of my New Year's resolutions was to host an own domain!

Obviously, Journal of Style is blessed with stucked to BLOGSPOT and believe me 
it doesn't bother me so far! Nevertheless I'm worrying about break downs or any 
technical issues and so on! While satisfying my curiosity with Google, 
I've found out that to enjoy the advantages of a very own website I have to 
move to wordpress. 

This is where you, lovely readers, comes in: 
Is it worth the change? By the way, Sandra Hagelstam from 5inchandup kept her 
Blogspot blog name, should I be faithful to my blogspot-attachment too?
Which experiences did you make with your (old) blog by Blogger? 

What are your thoughts?

  1. I do think that a blogger to wordpress transition is inevitable, and it does sound like being hosted on wordpress would have much more advantages! Personally, I've been using blogger for nearly 6 years now, I have a huge attachment to the domain, haha! Good luck in making this decision, Ira, whatever the case, I'll still be here supporting you! <3

  5. Blogger is very easy to use. I tried to use WP and struggled to get my head around it but this was a fair few years ago.
    Like anything it I'm sure if just takes time to get used to something.

  9. Congrats on the feature Ira. Wow! I haven't used wordpress, and I doubt that I ever will, I really like my good ol' blogger just the way it is. I love the Google comment box, it's all so easy, like a piece of cake. But it's your blog, Ira and you have to do what you think it's best for you.

  15. Oh I love Wordpress. I've been using it for years and I will say, there are so many features you will love. Yes, there is a learning curve, but there are so many websites that can teach you how do to do just about anything you want. I know you will love it. Congrats.

    I say go for it! I'm also moving to Wordpress by the way :)
    But I think your url name without blogspot looks so cool, official and serious!

  17. If you are worried about breakdowns and technical issues, moving to Wordpress won't really make a lot of difference :( my blog is self hosted on Wordpress, and the server is always having technical difficulties, especially lately, and at one point it crashed! On saying that, there are lots of advantages too, like you can advertise, you have a selection of lovely themes and plugins, and you control it yourself. But if something goes wrong, you have to deal with it yourself, which is what happened to me, but luckily I knew someone who came and helped me out. Best of luck with whatever you decide to do :) x

  19. I just recently moved over to wordpress, I'm nervous about the self hosted part and it's definitely a lot more money managing it, but I love my new layout and there's so many plug in options!

  21. Love that picture with the shoes! :)

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do with moving your blog! I have thought about getting my own domain but I'm not that fussed about it having 'blogspot' on my URL too much. My blog is just a hobby don't know if it's worth spending $$ on a special name for it, haha!

    My fashion magazine is host by wordpress, and to be honest, we are not very happy with it, because for better design you need to pay money ;( You can check out our fashion magazine ifbkseoul.com

  25. I'm with blogger and have my own domain. Having one is suppose to give you a more polished & professional look. Not sure if I agree. LOL I think a lot of blogspot blogs are polished and professional andddd do just fine without the .com

  26. Congratulations on your feature girl. :) I've been using wordpress for as long as I can remember. Currently I use siteground to host it. I've never had any experience with blogger before but I must say that wordpress is very user-friendly.

    Having your own domain is awesome as you get complete control over everything! I can't wait to see your new site if you do decide to get one.

    Hello Beautiful! I am in blogger and I have my own domain, I was thinking in change to wp but I decided not for now, I read that for a better design and more space you will have to pay eventually and with blogger you have no space limit so is a good think, ,you can also get the domain and stay with blogger., for now I am happy with blogger.

    Love those new shoes my dear.

  55. Hi my lovely Are!!! I'm really happy to read that... since I actually wanna stay loyal to Blogger too! WP is a great site too but like you've written it's quite expensive somehow...! And I've also read that you have more design options on Blogger than WP! Furthermore I still don't get it how to install it as a .zip! :( That's why I'm definitely gonna stay with Blogger as well! ;-)) Thank you so much for this information, honey! I really didn't know that I can have Blogger AND an own domain! You're the best! <3 <3 <3


    Thanks a lot! Those nude shoes gonna make us short ladies look a little taller, hahah! Can't wait to show my outfit with them this week! Bisous,
