Hey guys, I’m in the process of moving Katie&Cat to a self hosted platform. What does this mean for you?
- A custom domain name! katieandcat.wordpress.com > katieandcat.com. So much quicker to type and remember.
- I have a lot more customization options, so the layout of this bloggity blog should get prettier and easier to use.
- No more endless scrolling! This is a personal preference, but I am not a fan of endless scrolling when I’m reading blogs, hopefully you guys prefer it too!
- More content! It’s easier for me to add pages and subpages, so there will be more stuff in the future.
It’s the same blog you love (like all three of you ❤ woo!), but moving to self hosting will allow me to do more stuff behind the scenes to make the site work better. It also means I can customize the look and feel of the site. As someone who, in sixth grade, learned how to use photoshop and how to code in html so I could customize my Neopets user profile (hey remember when Neopets was a thing?), it was only a matter of time before I began to feel limited by my blogging platforms’ options. Now sky’s the limit. Well, more like my ability to navigate plugins and codes is the limit, but close enough.
For now, I’m still ironing out the kinks at katieandcat.com (broken links everywhereee – particularly in the Katie Reads tab), but the site is live and, in my opinion, starting to look pretty fancy!
Stay magical readers!
