This is it!
Greetings fellow class members of August ’15! Im really exited to meet with you and to see your sites. Im sure we have a lot to learn from one another.
I ran a blog last year on wordpress.com but eventually let it fizzle out due to having a busy work and personal life. After a year of dormancy I returned to give it a good kick back to life. Then I thought to myself “Why not make a clean start and go self-hosted?” After looking at other sites I noticed that there is a lot more flexibility in the design and layout if you go self-hosted. What really made my decision to switch was the recipe plugins. For a blog about food and recipes I thought this would be very important!
