I’d been going back and forth on the future plans for my blog – to expand it and make it fancy schmancy and try to attract all kinds of alternative families to my little hub of inclusive ramblings, or to keep it as my private and quiet little corner of the internet. My wife and I talked about buying a domain name and making a full-fledged website for alternative families (still on our radar as a long-term goal), and we were just hanging out in limbo not sure whether it made sense to spend the money to make it happen.
In the meantime, I decided to play around with changing my URL in the free WordPress account and I messed everything up. I appeared to have lost all my content. I panicked for a few minutes, watched some YouTube videos on how to fix it, and got more panicked (it’s crazy that I want to start a real deal website when I am this technically UNsavy). Eventually, faced with a lot of forum reading and frustration and likely failure, I purchased a WordPress plan so I could get one-on-one help. They solved my problem and calmed me down in the blink of an eye, and now I have a premium plan with my own domain name, www.momwithawife.com.
So I figured I better make the most of this new address and make a logo and a twitter page. If you want to follow me on twitter, you’ll find me @momwithawife.
Side note, I have a private Instagram account that is accessed by people in my real life and I don’t mention the blog on it, but I do welcome blogging friends to follow me on it.
Eventually I’ll make more changes and maybe, one day, way down the road, expand to that full-fledged website, but for now I’m comfortable in my snug little place in the blogosphere, with a new name and a social media presence.
