After six happy years of having Frangipani Princess on Blogger, I decided it was finally time to make the change and convert to WordPress.
I decided this for a number of reasons.
Firstly, most media jobs and internships have the ability to use WordPress as a requirement for applications
Secondly, as much as Blogger had suited young teenage me, it’s time for Frangipani Princess to become more professional. I’ve been growing increasingly unhappy with the limited layout options that were available to me, and thus the overall appearance that the website had. WordPress allows me to develop a more professional looking website, with ease.
Finally, Frangipani Princess is growing. I’ve recruited a number of contributors to help me write content, so that you as readers are always getting current and relevant information. During High School, it was fine for me to run FP on my own, but with how I want it to be seen and the function I want it to serve, it’s no longer a one-man show. Especially as I have University and internships. My lovely contributors will help me out by writing posts, doing reviews, and attending screenings and events when I am unable to, or would like a guest. Hopefully this will mean posting every single day, if not numerous times a day. But I’ll be realistic and admit this will take a little bit of time to straighten out.
Of course, moving blogging platforms is not an activity without hiccups. I ask you to please bear with me over the next few days as I get everything up and running and get everything as functional as I can.
The main issue, and this is aimed at PR/Media types, is that by swapping platforms, all my statistical data and rankings have completely disappeared. My stat counter will start again from zero. I have worked hard to get my daily hits up, but with losing my google followers, and the adjustment of a new site, my hits may take a beating for a few weeks. Hopefully this is only temporary and you stick with me while everything figures out how to be normal again.
Thanks for your eternal patience!
