Blog Diaries (EP 5): My WordPress Journey Begins

Let's get to the WordPress part, and here is the secret I wanted to tell you.

"Did you know I never set up a WordPress blog myself?

The website am currently operating was not started by myself, the set up was done by a developer friend of mine( I seem to have them everywhere), although that is not to say I have not set up one before.

Remember the Collosieum, the first Facebook page I had, I created a WordPress site for it.

Now at this point, some of you have already opened the blog and right now, your URL (that thing that starts with HTTP or www that takes you to where you are going) already has .blogspot.

Chop Knuckle! That's a Nigerian slang for a job well done.

Now at this point, let me state this, there is a difference between  "www.yournameBlogspot"  and  ".yourblogname. Com"

Although we get to that in my domain story, the difference is that one address is not entirely owned by you, for instance, Facebook is the owner of the platform where your timeline and billions of other timelines reside or occupy.

In essence, Facebook owns the house where your timeline lives, it is your host of your timeline, you are just a visitor.

For instance, Facebook.com/1creek or Facebook.com/your username.

Every address on Facebook always has Facebook.com in front of it.

So in .blogspot, you don't own it, you are just a visitor who borrowed space on whatever platform you choose but  ".Whateverblog. Com" means it is entirely yours but for a fee/rent

That is, you own a property on the internet.

So back to WordPress, how many times have I repeated that line?

So I didn't set it up, my big bad secret but there's more BUT AS IT IS CUSTOM, I WOULD SHARE 5 important HACKS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE OPENED WORDPRESS
