I am excited to announce that Simply Marina has become self-hosted. In my second year of blogging and after months of hesitation, I finally decided to take the next step. Because I had two options – either go self-hosted or give up. I was really close to the latter. I was actually on the verge of deleting all my social media accounts, my WordPress.com account, and last but not least my entire blog.
Just then a sudden inspiration struck. And I remembered why I didn’t want to say goodbye. I’m not done with blogging yet. I feel I’ve got more to say, more to share. Despite the unpleasant obsession with Twitter and other social networks, and even though it’s all too overwhelming at times… I believe it’s worth the efforts, not in terms of earning money. It’s worth it for so many other reasons as well.
