After weeks and weeks of research. Finally I have a new website 😭. I can’t believe it. It took me so long to go for it.
1. See what are the option for E-mail subscription services because Blogger is getting rid of the e-mail subscription by June 2021. I found this article: 6 Best Free Email Marketing Services Compared. Then, I realized that maybe it would be better to invest in a long term hosting service.
2. Researching about the best platforms to Blog and if it was possible for free like here in Blogger. This is an amazing article I found about it: How to Choose the Best Blogging Platform in 2021 (Compared). Then, I thought that my best option was WordPress so I decided to research more about it: Creating a Website with WordPress – Our Beginners Guide.
3. Tried to host a new WordPress in my husband hosting service (also promo to my husband that has been very supportive hopstrains.com). This is when I noticed I required a little more control over the account so I decided to try Bluehost which is recommended by WordPress.org website.
4. After 3 days of trying to setup my blog as minimalistic as I have it in here (which I thought was going to be easier) I finally gave up and decided to try Squarespace which make me feel really uncomfortable because I thought it was too expensive and I wasn’t going to be able to afford it but after researching and watching some videos about blogging, specifically this one: Why New Bloggers Should Use Squarespace and Skip WordPress, comparing prices, amount of storage and ease of use I decided to open a 14-day try Squarespace.
