WordPressSome things to note:
a) I have been attempting to find a new appearance for my blog without much success. This is becoming increasingly annoying to me but one day I may settle on something I’m happy with. In the meantime, please forgive the constant appearance changes.
b) I am considering moving to my own domain! I hate the advertising placed here if you are not logged in to WordPress, yet I love what WordPress has to offer. If their hosting fees were a little more competitive I would pay to have the advertising removed, a little thing I know but one that has increasingly annoyed me over time.
c) I do have two accounts at the Google Blogger, although they are much more controllable, for me they don’t offer the same things but that might also be an option given more time and thought.

To find the peace of mind I desire,
would be so easy to accomplish.
Yet the little things annoy beyond
all comparison to life’s real troubles.
Controlling what I can offers small reward,
when considered alongside that I cannot.
Trivial things keep me awake at night
whilst the bigger picture is beyond my grasp.
Taking comfort where I can,
satisfies even this meagre penman.
To pay up or move on is the consideration,
to lose my friends is no consideration at all!

    I have been quite happy since moving to my own domain. I only regret not doing it sooner. I have my site hosted elsewhere but installed WP to manage my site since I’m familiar with it. You can shop around for reasonable pricing so you can still have the best of both. Good luck whatever you decide!

    • I have owned domains before and know the benefits and the pitfalls. The thing I like about having my blog on is the lack of maintenance required to keep the software up to date plus the easy way to network on it. the only real downside is the cost of having the advertising removed. For the same outlay to remove the advertising for 1 year, I can buy my own domain and get it hosted by a reputable client for 2 years at about the same cost. If were to offer a similar deal at around the same cost, i would snap it up, as I assume, would many others.

      Still, it is still only a thought at the moment, though I guess I will make the decision when I’m ready.
