All weekend I've been researching web hosts and trying to glean the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. More importantly, I've been trying to decide which is the best for me and my situation.
Enter tech-guru Tia Nevitt who was kind enough to explain what I was reading. Deciphering technical jargon is like reading ancient Greek...backwards.
After talking to Tia I'm sure now I want to go the self-hosting route. I don't want to be encumbered by restrictions over what I can and cannot post. Chances are using WordPress.com wouldn't hurt me any, but I'm trying to plan for how my blog might evolve in two or three years. WordPress.org is more hands-on, meaning more control on the part of the user.
That's good if you like to have full control of your blog. Not so good if you're a troglodyte like me. But even troglodytes can learn. We usually do it kicking and screaming--but we do learn.
Whatever I decide won't go into effect until mid to late January. I want to get the holidays behind us before I start anything new.
Speaking of holidays...have you decorated? We were supposed to decorate over the weekend but I came down with a bad sinus headache.
This year I plan to make gift baskets for my friends. For the neighbors I plan to make some kind of bakery goodness. Sherri Myer on Facebook posted this recipe for cinnamon rolls. I'll probably use Greg as my pastry tester to be sure they came out right. He won't mind. :)
I've mentioned before that I am not a baker, but I would love to get better at it. Please, please, all you bakers out there: What's your secret for making a light, holey bread?
My bread always comes out too dense. I thought maybe I was overworking the dough but even with my handy-dandy Kitchenaid mixer, it's still not light and fluffy.
What am I doing wrong? It tastes good, but it's as heavy as a rock.
Do you bake?
Have you decorated yet?
Anybody out there use WordPress.org?
