Fast Friday: Confessions!

Happy Friday Friends! Today I’m sharing some confessions for you. They may shed some light on what’s to come in the next couple weeks. (foreshadowing!)

1. I get more excited about a new grocery store with a good salad bar than I do a new clothing store. Sunday I went to Kowalski’s for the first time, and I think I fell in love!

Since moving home I find myself shopping much less. In the first 3 months of the year I can think of two different times I’ve bought more workout gear, and ZERO times that I’ve bought “real clothes”.

2. I’ve been thinking about becoming self-hosted. I’ve known it was the right move to make, but I didn’t want to screw it up, or spend money on something I didn’t need.

Any tips for self hosting? Do you love a good grocery store as much as I do?



      1. The luxury of living in such a diverse location is that there are so many health food stores and the fun thing is I can usually get my dad to go with me….so the bill is pretty much paid for….oh the joys of still living at home. Trader joe’s is amazing apart from their sushi, which is terrible, I love that they having tasting booths, and literally every kind of food you can think of.

  1. Well I don’t have too many tips on SWITCHING to self-hosted, but I can say that my experience has been good with Bluehost. For the most part, I think the switch is the hardest part, and then it kind of all works itself out from there. I know that when people start really increasing in followers they might have to change hosting servers and stuff like that, but that’s the only real problem I can think of! What’s prompting you to want to switch?

    1. Well, I put a question out to that I haven’t heard back from yet…But there is some version of a rule that you can’t have sponsored posts. At this point I haven’t had any yet, but I don’t want to post something and end up in blogger jail. So, if they get back to me saying that I need to be on, I will definitely make the switch.

  2. I agree with Amy — Bluehost all the way and the hardest part is making the transition. I actually paid someone to do it for me because I was afraid of messing up!

    Let me know if you ever want to meet up sometime while you’re in the Cities!

    1. I’m seriously considering paying someone (wordpress actually offers it, which is even more attractive to me). I would love to meet up! I’ll let you know the next time I’m coming down.

  3. I highly recommend Square Space, where I am now. If you pay for a year, you get a free .com and you don’t have have to use an outside host. I did self-hosted wordpress before, though, and I was able to figure it out by myself despite being as technologically challenged as they come. You can do it!
