Goal 2 ~ Hosting my OWN blog

Standard
During this week, I am sharing a few goals (those I found most important) If this is your first time here, you may want to go check out the initial post.
 
Goal One is to stop dreaming about being that wife and mother and to start being her. 
 
Goal Two~Host my own blog.
 
This blog limits me….seriously!
 
I’m not completely ignorant, but I’m not real techy either. I want to own my blog. But it takes some skill. Skill I don’t quite have…..soo; I’m going to learn it. (pray I don’t delete my blog in the process…;)

I used to blog occasionally over at blogspot, then in July I decided to take this whole blogging thing seriously. I purchased my domain, exported my old blog, entered into the wordpress world, mapped my own domain over, lost all my emails, etc…it was an absolute nightmare. 
 
I thought I had learned it all, but as I began to really dive into the social media world; getting myself a twitter account, a facebook page, and reading SO. MANY. other great blogs…..I quickly realized I had a very. long. way to go. I can’t place plug-ins, certain buttons, ads, link-ups…you know, all the “cool” stuff that makes a blog your own. 
 
So this year I am going to venture into the world of “techy”  We live on a pretty really tight budget, so hiring services out such as web design, hosting, etc isn’t really an option…(which will lead me to goals 3-5)
 
I’m going to reach out to some other great bloggers for advice.  
Youtube help
Read more books.
 
Whatever it takes, as like I said; Hopefully I don’t somehow delete my blog in the process!
