5 Signs It's Time to Move Your Blog to Another Platform

Before we get to today's post, an announcement . . .

As of today, Inkwell Editorial's blog has moved from blogger to wordpress. My blog's home here will never be forgotten, as it's where I cut my teeth on this medium, which has brought me profound success. So, goodbye blogger, it's like ending a relationship with a lover that you still crave and adore, but realize it's time to move on. Following are some relationship rules that signal whether it's time to move your blog to another platform.

Signs It's Time to Move Your Blog to Another Platform

Relationship metaphors are perfect to judge whether it's time to move yoru blog to another platform. Because, just ike your significant other, you enter into a relationship when you blog. And, over time, that relationship will exhibit the ups, downs, joys and pains of any other type of relationship. Hence, should be assessed through the same lens.

Here goes. . . signs you and yoru blog need to find new relationships . . .

1. You shouldn't fight too much at home: If you yell, scream and roll your eyes, and bang your keyboard because of some glitch with your blog, it's time to move on.

2. Love is Freeing: If you're constantly frustated at your blog's limitations and find yourself wishing that it had that feature or this, then it's time to move on.

3. You Should Grow Closer Together Over Time, Not Further Apart: Piggybacking on the last point, your blog's capability should grow with you, not inhibit you.

4. Love is Faithful: Even though you may crave all the bells and whistles of another blogging platform, if you find that you've actually tried out another one (ie, cheated on your primary blog), then it's definitely time to move on.

5. I Can't Stand the Sight of You! If everytime you look at your blog you feel that it's lacking, it's time to move on.

Hasta luego, mi amor. Tal vez en el futuro, encontremos otro vez. Un beso y abrazo muy fuerte por todo!
