The Good Ol’ Days of Blogging
Back when I was younger, I remember the simplicity of blogging. Having your webpage being hosted on a free hosting server and domain, such as blogger and blogspot, and all that was needed was a simple form to write, submit, and have it posted? But nowadays, it’s gotten much more complicated with widgets, dashboards, plugins and themes. I had decided to go into this thinking it would be much more simple but boy, was I wrong.
A blogging scrub, that’s what I am.
Although I had originally told myself that I would go through with a simple and responsive layout for this blog, the more I researched and read up on the subreddit about how to maximize SEO mechanics, links, contact forms, page builders and everything else, I found that I was throwing more and more time into what began as a creative outlet.
This blog has been alive for less than a week, but I feel like I’ve been doing the work of giants for years. I have been switching through tabs on tabs on tabs of resources, guides, and documentation for everything that I am using, that I have fallen behind on my own content and media, the things that actually matter the most to me. As a result, I’ve given myself a deadline and due date for the “most likely possible in the end, I’ll probably waffle a bit” layout and design and everything else will be devoted to content creation.
