All this technology is brain draining!

It took me three months to figure out how to start this blog! Once I sussed it, it took another four days to get the hang of what the functions do. And I’m still trying to remember how to navigate around the functions. But, I’m getting there. Thanks, by the way to Kylie, who got me started.

Up to now, in order to get to this blog, you need to download the Wix app. That is because it is a free blog. In order for you to be able to search for my blog in the normal way, I have to pay. It’s all a bit convoluted, but the long and short of it is that I have paid for a one year contract. What we get is the ability to search in the normal way; it should appear at the top of the list; Unlimited bandwidth, which I believe means that when you click on the link, it loads quickly and scrolling is much faster. The free version is 500MB.; 20GB of storage. I understand that that is to do with the data on the page. Text is negligible. Photos will be the main source of data usage, and even then, it’s not a lot. Apparently, 20GB should be in the region of 6000 photos. That’s a lot of photos. I also get 5 hours of video footage and a bunch of other stuff I don’t understand - yet. As it is, there is a load of functions on here that are irrelevant to my needs/blog. I’m hoping that when my domain name goes live on the internet, I will be able to do a lot more and improve the site. We will find out in 48hrs.

I have also discovered that what I thought was the ownership of is in fact, lease. It appears that I will need to renew the registration of that name, yearly.

Do you know or do you know anyone who would be able to help with all this? I would appreciate the guidance. i.e. Can I buy outright? If so, how do I go about it? I would love to create a really good-looking blog. I think it should look as good as it reads.

Thanks for your offer! I have paid Wix to host my blog for a year, so won’t be able to go elsewhere until then. It turns out that I own this domain outright along with the .com and am only paying for the hosting. I think what I will need as this grows is a better website that I would have more control over, design-wise. You can write to me via ‘chat’ or e-mail to discuss further, etc. Perhaps try to meet up. Thanks again for the comments and kind offer.


Hi there. Im enjoying reading your blog. I can help with domain hosting for free. You'll need to register a domain, unfortunately you cant register your current one as its owned by wix but a quick check shows that "" is available along with various connotations of that. Once you have registered it, i can host it, but your only issue then is creating a the blog from there. Unfortunately the wix website software is their own so you would have to use something like wordpress, which looks good but can be hard to figure out. Get in touch with me using the email address on the comment account and ill help you out further
