This is an important update for followers of My Wellbeing and Learning Journey.
After receiving an email of what it would cost next year to renew my blog on the personal plan I have it on, (unless I put a renewal in soon,) I have found the pricing will go up.
The price is a huge cost increase for a personal blog that I write just for pleasure and not for profit and so to renew the personal plan and keep my domain https://mywellbeingandlearningjourney.com is just not worth it.
This blog is not a business blog and never will be, so it’s too much to pay for something I don’t earn money from. To go up to a price as it’s turned out to be is a huge increase for me, that I cannot afford, so I have cancelled my subscription. If I knew it would increase to that much, I would never have upgraded my blog in the first place and instead kept it on the free domain.
What does this mean for this blog?
Nothing straight away as of yet. You will continue to read my blog ad free. But next year, from 23rd July 2019, my blog domain https://mywellbeingandlearningjourney.com expires. This means my domain will go back to the free version I had when I first started blogging, https://mywellbeingandlearningjourney.wordpress.com
How will it affect you?
Any followers that followed this blog from 23rd June 2018 and onwards will be affected. I gather it will affect both email followers and those who follow via WordPress reader. Those who have followed my blog when it was originally https://mywellbeingandlearningjourney.wordpress.com will not be affected.
Please bookmark https://mywellbeingandlearningjourney.wordpress.com on your computer for future reference, or whichever device you like to view my blog from, so that you can re-follow me back later, when the domain goes back to the free domain in July.
I plan to make my free domain link primary domain, in the New Year. (Way before it expires.) This will happen on 10th January 2019. So when you visit my blog, you will find it https://mywellbeingandlearningjourney.wordpress.com and not https://mywellbeingandlearningjourney.com
So if you followed my blog from 23rd June 2018 and want to keep following my blog after 23rd June 2019, then do make sure you re-visit and sign back up to emails, if it turns out you don’t receive updates when it has gone back to my free domain and if you are viewing my blog through WordPress reader, you can add the free domain link now to your reader, as this domain has been still available while I was using the paid version.
