5 Reasons Why I Only Blog On WordPress

5 Reasons Why I Only Blog On WordPress

At the moment, I only blog on WordPress.

You are not going to find any blog posts from me on:

  • Blogger
  • Ghost
  • Weebly
  • Squarespace
  • Medium
  • Substack
  • Vocal Media
  • Wix

Now, while all of those places would be most suitable for my content, I have chosen to blog exclusively on WordPress (And, I am going to tell you why).

1.) I Devoted A Lot Of My Time And Energy To Creating Content On WordPress

Yes, my friend, I have devoted a lot of my time and energy to creating content on WordPress.

When I left Blogger behind, I vowed to do the best that I can with Renard’s World (And, I believe that I have done a good job of that so far).

Energy-wise, Renard’s World is totally me.

2.) “Renard’s World” Deserves My Full Attention

There are only twenty-four hours in a day; I know that I can devote a portion of it to content creation.

As you already know, bloggers need to:

  • Do a bit of brainstorming with the sole purpose of coming up with new ideas for their blog posts.
  • Work on the draft copies of their blog posts.
  • Proofread their blog posts.
  • Edit their blog posts.
  • Find or create the appropriate images for their blog posts.

All of those things that I mentioned can be somewhat time-consuming (Despite the time-consuming aspect of it, I always manage to get my quota of blogging done).

3.) I Would Be Dividing My Energy By Publishing Content Here On WordPress And On Another Blogging Platform

Some of you are quite good at creating content for two separate blogs and more.

If you happen to be one of those people with more than one blog, you would know that it is not easy to manage two or three blogs; the God’s/Goddess’s truth is that, in a lot of instances, one of those blogs will fall by the wayside while you focus your attention on the one that you like the most (In other words, they do not get your equal attention).

There is the probability of a blogger thinking to themselves that their blog on Blogger is not as quite as deserving of their attention as their blog on WordPress (And, this may have a lot to do with their blog posts on WordPress being acknowledged by their WordPress community and their blog posts on Blogger being totally ignored by the blogging community over on Blogger).

For the sake of argument, you could say, “Renard, instead of blogging on WordPress and on another blogging platform, you could have both of your blogs on WordPress.”

Yes, the truth is that I can if I wanted to.

However, I have made a conscious decision to focus my all on one blog alone ― Renard’s World.

4.) I Want To Keep My Sanity

I have said on numerous occasions in the past, “One blog is a handful!”

Therefore, I do not want to undergo any unnecessary stress by taking on the responsibility of managing an additional blog.

My sanity means a lot to me.

5.) I Have A Loyal Following Here On WordPress

Thanks to the wonderful WordPress community, I have managed to create a loyal following; for which I am most grateful.

Also, I truly enjoy interacting with the members of the WordPress community.

Hey, it does not take a rocket scientist to inform you of the fact that the WordPress community is one of a kind (And, only a fool will be willing to leave their WordPress community behind).

Final Thoughts

At the moment, WordPress is the best place for me and it serves as the ideal home for Renard’s World.

Besides, I need to respect my energy.

What about you?

Do you only blog on WordPress?

Or, are you one of those bloggers who blog on WordPress and on some other blogger platform?

  1. For now, I only blog on WP.
    But, I won’t be sticking to this forever.
    Yes, I do have loyal following and the community here is incomparable. I really love the experience. But, I want to take my work to different audience. That will create me more opportunities.
    I’ve once tried tealfeed, but there I have to wait for them to approve my blogs. I’m considering of medium and other interface.

      1. Hey Renard sir. I wanted to tell you. I am enjoying your work a lot. You are providing great valuable and knowledgeable content. I learn something new everytime through them.
        Keep sharing such high quality content.

  2. I’m glad that you’re here on WP. Your posts are always inspiring. I will never leave WP either. The community is just too good that I can’t bear to part with them. You’re right. One blog in itself can be a handful to manage.

  3. As I have mentioned to you, I just started a blog on Medium and you are right about it taking up a lot of time to try to do both. I’ve good thing is that I can easily import my past blogs from WordPress to Medium, since Medium has a tool set up for that. I can see in future, I will have to slow down on one or the other.

  4. One blog on WP only, like you; l want to keep my sanity in check πŸ™‚

    In 2017, l had three WP blogs, but by 2018 l had moved them all to the base camp of the Guy blog, which was the main blog till May of this year.

    But when l realised in early 2022 l needed to maintain a different blog – a gardening-orientated journal, there was no way l could manage two blogs with everything else going on, and more so that my writing style and interest in fiction were waning, l knew it was time to change course. The decision was made to delete one and reboot the experience with another.

    Years ago [2001 – 2006], l used to do a lot of my business work on Freewebs.com websites. They l read recently changed their name to Webs and shut down last year. But l had websites and forums with them. In 2005, l had my main 600-page website, four forums and five other supporting websites, and I ran an 18-hour-a-day livestock brokerage business.

    But l was twenty years younger back then! That’s easier; l was also a full-on adrenaline-junkied insomniac who needed no sleep! That, too, makes a difference.

    These days, l am so physically and mentally tired that running all over that lot would see me walking into a forest with a long hefty rope.

    Have a great Wednesday, Renard. [It is that day today too]

  5. I have tried multiple blogs, and as you point out it’s,to much work, and the projects get abandoned.
    I do have private wordpress blogs on which I try out features and keep to do lists.

  6. This is a sweet blog post Renard, I love it. Reading about the love you have for WordPress is very touching and I have to say I enjoy this blogging community here, it is my online blog family.

    Also, WordPress is just unique than any other blog platform and that’s why I admire it.

    I also blog only here on WordPress and I intend to stick here for as long as I am breathing air😊

    Well written blogπŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ™Œ

  7. I blog only on WordPress and I have two blogs. My second blog is for poetry that I contributed to other WordPress blog sites. I prefer to have them all contained in one of my sites. With that said, I created a new blog because I felt my older work deserved a new look. I have over 60 poems ready to publish, thus far.

    I also contribute poems to PoetrySoup and Spillwords Press, which I don’t consider that blogging. I don’t plan on moving those poems to my WordPress sites. I have 52 written poems on PoetrySoup and I enjoy the community there. Plus, I’m a lifetime member so if something goes awry with WP, I have a place to share my poems. Several of my poems have been published in PoetrySoup’s anthologies.

    Spillwords Press is a wonderful site for writers. I have 12 written poems on their site. Poetry, short stories, etc. has to be submitted and accepted on this site.

    Excellent subject , Renard!

  8. Hi Renard.

    As you know, I am a former blogger on WordPress who has gone back to Blogger. Blogger is where I will stay and the last trace of my previous blog on WordPress has now gone after deleting it recently.
    But I still do have my WordPress account which I use to communicate with when visiting WordPress blogs that I still like to follow.

    One time I used to have two blogs which I enjoyed doing regardless it was time consuming to write two blogs. The other was a completely different thing to what I write currently, but I stopped writing it and have just stuck to the one blog since.

  9. All valid points Renard!!
    I like #1 & #5 the best as I AM established here & do not want to move the blog.
    My personal favorite is #4….I would go crazy trying to maintain 2 blogs. I’ve seen others do this & I admire them 100%.
    But THE Purrfect Pad is more than enough for us!

  10. Hi Renard! I only use WP but sometimes an e-zine I submit to posts on Medium. I’m fine with that. I’m like you. I feel loyal to the community and also I have no energy to take the time to learn another platform from the bottom up. I like it here. I’m getting more accomplished slowly but surely.
    I’ve been away for a while but it sure does feel great to be back. Hope all is well in your world. xo

  11. Man, listen: sanity? Forget about it. I have several blogs and a newsletter and I can admit that it is time consuming and I’ve slightly gone mad. It’s difficult for me or anyone (honestly) to commit even a fraction of the time and effort to run them all, efficiently. Thank you for this.
