We bloggers are some of the hardest people to please. There are those moments when we get totally bored with the blogging platform that we are on (That is totally understandable since sameness can eat away at us).
What do we do whenever we find ourselves bored?
We look for something else to do ― mainly something that excites us.
And, sometimes in the name of finding something exciting to do, we register for an account on another blogging platform and begin playing around with it (We do it for a quick adrenaline rush).
It Does Not Hurt To Know How Another Blogging Platform Works
Many bloggers have admitted to me that the only place that they have ever blogged is WordPress.
In all honesty, WordPress is a superb place to blog (It is just that some of us tend to lose our minds whenever it is time for the infamous Happiness Engineers to poke underneath the hood).
Also, I find it hard to believe that few people on WordPress have wondered what it is actually like to publish articles on:
To make a long story short, the experience of putting an article together in the text editor on those services is unique.
Also, you might encounter more than you had bargained for.
Do Not Be Too Eager To Delete Your WordPress Account
Dear friend, do not make the mistake of deleting your WordPress account without thinking things through.
Because if you delete your WordPress account, it will be gone forever.
However, if you have uttered the words, “To hell with WordPress,” on numerous occasions, you can go right ahead and wipe your WordPress account from its existence by deleting it.
Also, there is a perk to not deleting your WordPress blog.
And, what is that perk that I speak of?
That perk that I speak of, is running back to WordPress with your tail between your legs when things do not work out as expected with the other blogging platform.
It Is Okay If You Want To Blog On WordPress And The New Blogging Platform That You Have Chosen For Yourself
Yes, my friend, it is quite okay to blog on more than one blogging platform.
As a matter of fact, there are WordPress bloggers who also devote some of their time to creating articles to publish on:
It is completely okay for you to do that.
What becomes an issue is when you have a hard time updating your blog on WordPress and find it very difficult to create and publish content on the new blogging platform that you have chosen for yourself.
The truth is that if you have chosen to blog on more than one blogging platform, you will need to be astute in the area of time management.
One of the greatest concerns for the average blogger is making the time for blogging (And, having a blog here on WordPress and another on some other blogging platform will make things somewhat of a challenge).
The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that you should only start an additional blog on another blogging platform if you are not struggling with your blog on WordPress.
Because you will be spreading yourself too thin; thus risking severe burnout.
The Bottom Line
Creating another blog on another blogging platform might not be a bad thing; however, it could take a turn for the worst if you skipped the necessary planning; for example, not knowing what the hell you were exactly getting yourself into.
Hasty decisions are seldom good ones.
And, those who have chosen to devote all of their time to creating and publishing blog posts exclusively on WordPress might actually be the smart ones.
In the meantime, my friend, try not to find yourself getting bored with WordPress, because if you do, you might end up landing yourself in trouble by creating a blog on another blogging platform (And, we both know what that can lead to).
