Why I Kept A Personal Blog For My Online Shop

Don't get me wrong, I love the e commerce company chose for my online shop website which came with a blog. However, after starting to blog on that site, it dawned on me to use my personal one instead for many reasons. The main reason was what if this company doesn't work out and the need comes to go with another e commerce company? Then all that blogging is lost. Yes, the posts from whoever you chose to go with for your online platform may be able to be exported or you can spend the time copying and pasting all the information and uploading photos into a new blog, but then all the postings have to go through the process of showing up on searches again. Whether you're a constant blogger or not, that's a lot of work and a lot of time. I'm not an expert or anything, just do research and give things a try to see what works, but after losing so much information with a former online selling platform, I wanted to make sure nothing is lost anymore. It's easier to change links on posts using a personal blog site if you have to go with another e commerce company to sell your items than go through such a tedious process to rebuild your blog. As we all know blogging takes time and thought and I just wanted to share my thoughts about this topic. Thank you for reading!
