To Switch, or not to Switch...

Hey guys. So I've been thinking for a while now about what platform I want to use for my blog. Going into this, I had no help and got tired of going through YouTube videos telling me all of the same things about hosts, and coding, and blah blah blah. After a while I noticed the trend of having WordPress and Blogspot as my options, and I went with Wordpress because I was impressed with the community and the quality of the websites I previewed.

What I didn't know was that there is a difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. With WordPress.com you don't get to edit code or have all of the plugins. I was fine with that when I started out because I figured there was just a fee for around $100 and I could finally own it and use Google Analytics. So I just paid for the name. But apparently it doesn't work like that. Apparently you can have a WordPress blog under a host and then use Google Analytics. So I've been looking into Bluehost.

But honestly, it all feels a little too overwhelming. So I've been looking into Blogspot blogs to see the quality of some of them and whether it was worth the switch. Apparently, Blogspot is connected to Google Analytics, which I wanted in the first place!

So I'm still trying to figure everything out, as you can see. But in the process I'm coming across blogs that are pretty interesting, so that's always fun. If you have any advice, please help!
