Question to bloggers

Standard

I have a question to all bloggers out there please.

My blog is over 5 years old and is slowly running out of space. ( free theme)

What can I do to add space? ( not buying additional space though)

Do I need to delete posts, which I don’t really like.

Do I need to start a new one and start all over again?

I have exported the whole lot and got it on my downloads. – for info

Any ideas are appreciated bearing in mind that I am not that computer savvy.

 

Thank you

Here are my replies to the 10 questions from Debra:

Can you remember what it was that inspired you to set up a blog?

The initial thought was to have my own website and get to know IT and the internet better. I found blogspot and then wordpress and loved it straight away. The idea that people all over the world can read what I publish is just awesome. 

When was it that you published your first ever blog post?

That was on 9th June 2012, wow long ago. 🙂

How would you describe your blog?

It is an inspirational blog,  with thoughts of daily life, trying to bring smiles and happiness to the world. 

Do you blog as a profession or for fun?

I love it and do it for fun and happiness.

What is your preferred setting when you sit down to blog and publish your writing/photography?

I love to sit in front of my computer, I have 2 monitors where the blog post is being written on the right and I look for pictures and quotes on the left screen, put them into paint to get ready to import into the post. Having a cup of tea nearby is almost a must!

Are there any hard and fast rules you set for yourself when it comes to blogging?

No rules just fun and enjoyment!

What aspect of the ‘bloggersphere’ do you most enjoy?

I love meeting new people via the internet with similar ideas like me. I have already made wonderful friends and met 2 blogger friends in person.  I love reading posts of my blogger friends and get inspiration from them and that makes me happy also I learn about other countries and people through other blogs. It is a wonderful way to communicate with bloggers all over!

What aspect of the ‘bloggersphere’ do you find the most daunting?

I don’t really find it daunting… I don’t put any pressure on myself, as it is like a hobby otherwise I wouldn’t enjoy it so much!. Sometimes I don’t have enough time to read all blogs I like to but bloggers are understanding, it is life.

In your view, who is the main reader audience for your blog?

I don’t think I can categorize them, they are from all walks of life from all over the world and I love them all!


What do you do in your spare time that is not reflected/associated with your blogging pursuits?

I love making earrings, do jigsaw puzzles to relax and dance a lot!

  1. How did you get into blogging?
