Since this post I have since switched to Weebly.com (A backwards switch for most but it allowed me to customize without coding and focus on my portfolio instead of constantly redesigning my site!)
When I first started my business journey I created a blog on blogger.com I had looked into different blog formats including WordPress but blogger had the most customization and it was easier for me to learn (seeing as I was a beginner) This blog was successful for everything I needed it to do at the time, but then I started illustrating. I didn't want to have my illustrations shared only in blog format. I needed a portfolio of some kind, and I also wanted to be able to provide a link back to somewhere you could find everything about me. So, I decided to create my own website and that prompted the question...
Wordpress.com or Wordpress.org?
