A New Beginning

time-for-a-change-2015164_1920.jpg

So what does this title mean? I’m changing my URL and name here, I must say I’ve outgrown both. One is that gaming is not my sole nor main focus and so it’s a misbranding nowadays, plus I want to veer into some content I feel doesn’t fit at the moment. Two is that there’s far too many Cat’s and alternative spellings of it, so I must say I get confused with other bloggers, and I’d prefer to have a more unique name to go with this new branding.

I’ve already changed the theme of the blog a while back (because the other theme was no longer supported and dead), I may change the scheme color again for this rebranding, but since most use WP reader I’m sure many haven’t realized the changes πŸ˜‹

Giving a heads-up because this means all links directing to me and my posts will be broken. I’ll leave to everyone’s discretions if they want to change the links to working ones or delete them altogether. I won’t be mad, I know how much work it is fixing broken links πŸ˜…

My new identity is Nes and my blog shall be called Critical Nes, I intend to do some far wider content, including some editorial pieces.

I considered briefly changing from WP to Weebly, blogspot or some other website but since I’ve built here a community and friends I don’t want to leave. The reason for the change would have been to get some income to the transition to a custom URL, but I don’t need it TBH. This is a hobby, and if I didn’t enjoy it I wouldn’t have kept this far, even if I’d like to have a .com URL πŸ˜‹

I’ll be doing it this month, hoping to change it all by my birthday time (13 of April), so keep your eyes peeled!

Edit: I’ve concluded changing it all, so here’s to a new beginning!

 

Have you been hit with the Spring bug of change like me? If so, what do you intend to change? Tell me everything~

    1. I’d prefer to be called Nes πŸ˜‹ But I don’t mind if you still call me Cat~

      THANKS!!! I struggled a bit to find one that I liked so I understand what you mean about most of the themes, since my tastes tend to change a lot 😫

      The only sad part is that I’ve lost all the rankings in Google and the top posts I have appear in Google as blog is deleted, I really wish WP wouldn’t do that πŸ‘Ί Birthing a new blog while deleting the old one just doesn’t make any sense if you ask me sigh. But I’ll take it as a challenge to grow from 0 again 😀

      Oh yeah you changed your URL too, I did like that name but well, you can always change your current one to another if you’re unhappy πŸ˜‚

      1. Nes it is then! Same, one day i’ll like one theme and the next I’ll be like ehhh it doesn’t look THAT nice xD xD and that’s true! I know wp has a thing where they’ll redirect your old links to the new blog but i think they charge for that :/ i didn’t want to pay so i just deleted my old links off my twitter and edited the ones on my fb but yeah, there’s a lot lost when you change the url >_:^)

        1. Nes is actually part of my real name unlike Cat, that’s why I prefer it. It’s a diminutive of a diminutive though πŸ˜‚

          Ooohhhh I feel you! When I saw this one I knew it was the right one, though not sure what to choose in colors and color swatches, so I gave up and selected a premade one πŸ˜‚
          I think they’re new themes now though because I know this one wasn’t around when I made my blog or last changed my theme, so maybe now there’s more stuff for your tastes πŸ˜‹

          Yup they charge for that, so I’m whatever, rankles because I had 2 posts in top spots in Google, but not anymore πŸ‘Ί
          The other thing that rankles is WP not letting us get any income, AdSense or otherwise, when they are putting ads in our blogs for being free. Like how can I transition to the paid version if I don’t have any way to capitalize??? WP doesn’t make sense, it’s why I considered changing service but I have a community and followers here so I stayed πŸ’—

          1. thats true, maybe i’ll look around >:3 yeah, i think the only way you can get money off your blog is if you have a (.com) website. i know you can get it as part of the paid membership but i think you can also pay like 12-18$ and then sign up for ads on your blog. you don’t get the perks for the paid membership but at least you spend a little and hopefully get more off it. I’m thinking of trying that but i’m not sure yet >_< and same, i've thought about switching over to another platform before but wp is really good when it comes to finding a community

            1. Good luck with finding something to your taste!

              WP is a bastard if you ask me, it doesn’t make sense. Free platforms like blogpost, Weebly, Wix have AdSense/monetizing options without paying πŸ‘Ί
              To me it doesn’t compensate paying for this, it’s a hobby and I don’t have the throw away kind of cash for this. Now if I earned with the blog of course I’d put the cash towards it, but WP prefers fucking us.

              Good luck with it if you try!

              TBH I haven’t ruled out another platform, plus if you don’t go with WordPress hosting WordPress reader doesn’t work either way 😀
