WordPress vs self hosting…

So, I have been in WordPress for a good few years now. I pay the medium level and I do love using this blog hosting site more than Blogger for example. 

However, I am rather bored of their template designs. I find some amazing designs online and already have a few I have my eye on.  But it seems that they cannot be added due to my blog not being self hosted. The one I have at the moment is OK but it isn’t me.

Can anyone help me?  Do I have to transfer my blog to WordPress.org?  How easy is it to do that? I am already paying yearly does that mean I lose out on money?? 

Any tips I would absolutely love.

Day 13 blog challenge: a band or musician who has positively impacted your life

wordswag_1483027419542

Firstly I want to wish you all a beautiful Christmas,  I hope that you have already recovered from all of the food and drink. I know today especially i am so tired!!

I had a little Christmas blog break, one because I had too many family memorable moments to forget about my blog and two….. just been a bit tipsy lol. But back to the blog!

I like this day, as I have pretty ,ichor done this post before so I can either do a huge copy or paste lol or just provide you the link. My love for this artist has never changed,  I still get emotional listening to their songs. Weirdly a song of theirs just came on as I’m writing this.

I love their positivity, their detail of emotion throughouttheir lyrics and the escapism of it all. I was really going through a rough patch know my “love life” and their album was played on repeat, sang loudly in the car and quite often cried to it

Please kept in mind that I wrote this post in 2014, not only has my writing style changed but this was when said artist was becoming big haha.

Enjoy —– the musician that has positively impacted my life.

So please ignore how blank it may appear to be and don’t judge me on the look at the moment.

Ps if anyone has any ideas, or knows of any great wordpress themes website – SEND ME THE LINKS!!!

Argh New blogger HELP!! – advice, tips and hints for you

large (3)

First of all, I am in no way saying that you should follow what I say, do what I say or take everything I say to be right. I personally have been in and out of blogging for over a year, my original blog was on blogger and I just could not get used to the lay out, I then lost interest and I didnt know what direction to go in and that was my main issue.

I am slowly starting to become less anonymous with my blog, but my main intention of this blog was to write about how I felt, what I loved and what I could not say to others.

I came across WordPress and yes I have paid for some of this and I have definitely not looked back. Myself personally I do not blog every Thursday, sometimes of course I do not post every day but its always soooooooo good to let off steam!!!

I thought whilst looking on Twitter through #bloghour that many are wanting tips, yet again I am not providing you tips to do, I am just saying some information and what I have come across myself……… so let’s get on with it.
