I’ve been toying with the idea of paying actual money to WordPress in order to customize this blog. Last summer, when I started this experiment in self-obsession, I really liked how clean and clear and under control this “theme” looks, but now it bores me and makes me feel like I’m not fully expressing myself (despite the fact that I am, quite literally, expressing myself in words all over the place).
In addition, I also want to purchase a domain name, so I can get rid of “.wordpress.com” and feel like a grown up (who blogs about cats and bad hair days).
Has anyone else customized with WordPress? Or purchased a domain name through WordPress? Have the upgrades been worth it?
I have a confession: when my mom worries about checking her email on vacation because she is still convinced it is linked solely to the desktop computer in her bedroom, I laugh cruelly in her face. However, I am too stupid to know how to do much more on the internet than sign into things and hit “Publish,” so I need help.
