I’ve been having so many problems with my self-hosted site. It seems that everything is more difficult for me because I don’t have a wordpress.com blog, but one connected through the Jetpack by WordPress plugin. I don’t know, maybe I’m exceptionally incompetent.
For the last few hours, I literally thought all my hard work had vanished because I could not access my website in any way. I thought it was broken and gone and no matter what I did, I couldn’t fix it. I have experienced plenty of other small issues that have made my blogging experience pretty negative overall, so I don’t think my fears were irrational or unfounded. Problem after problem after problem builds distrust.
But I will persevere! I have so much to say and so many books to promote, discuss, and review that I will not give up no matter how difficult the technical side of blogging gets for me. I was ready to start all over again and get a simple wordpress.com blog to make it easier on me. But thankfully that wasn’t necessary. It wouldn’t have been good for my sanity.
Anyway, I really had to post something quickly because I needed to get this off my chest to feel better.
Does any one else experience issues with the technical side of blogging? Is it just me?
