Overhauled!

That's what happened with this blog. It seems the host for the personalized blog template I used to have expired. I checked one day and voila...I couldn't read anything on it because it was plastered with this:


Since I am not very active with my blogging anymore I just let it stay that way for a few weeks. I was hoping that it will go back to normal when the new month starts. Well, it didn't. I asked a blogger friend who is very knowledgeable with blogging and is still actively blogging what to do and she advised that I could just change the template and use the free ones so I did. I chose one of the free ones here and that's it. The little I know about templates, HTML, etc is almost non-existent but I'm glad I was able to navigate through the settings and changed the template.

Another blogger friend posted something about this as well and it's only there that I found out that this 3rd party hosting is now charging a lot to use their service. It used to be free to use them. I believe they're now charging around 50 bucks a month to about 500 bucks a year. What???????? Ummm...I don't think so. Blogging used to be a good source of income but not anymore. Even during that time I didn't make that much money. I think the biggest amount I made in blogging in a year was about 500 bucks...and that was at the peak of the blogging craze. I had other jobs and blogging was just something extra for me. Oh well. I still pay for my domain but I'm not paying anymore than that to maintain this blog. If that fee for my domain reaches a certain amount I'm no longer willing to pay I will switch to a free hosting available.

Overhauled!
