I remember when I was first introduced to the idea of having my own website. I was 8 and we had just signed up to the internet at home. The idea of being able to have my own website was exciting but I had no idea what I wanted to share on the web. Over 10 years later I found myself enjoying blogging, and today I share with you my own domain name, www.rachelbarkley.co.uk has joined the web!
There are many reasons people get their own domain names, my personal reason is quite simple, it’s for my own satisfaction. I have had a lot of fun with blogging and wanted to move on, this seemed a natural progression.
Working with WordPress.org has been interesting, providing plenty of challenges. It looks so familiar but in fact is very different from using WordPress.com. There is still plenty to change and improve but I am happy enough with it to share it with you all!
You may need to re-subscribe, and I hope you will.
My blog is not yet finished. I have loads of ideas I want to try out, test and improve upon. This is simply the first step towards achieving this.
