Goodbye WordPress ? Not quite…

I don’t follow that many people on WordPress as I just don’t have much time to read other’s posts so there would be no point in following lots of accounts and getting to read none of them. However I have seen four remove themselves from WordPress in the past year.

Now I don’t know if there’s something going on but this graph shows a little story from my point of view. This relates to the visits and views for my website since I set it up. As you can see 2018 was a bit of a bumper year, and yet the amount of posts hardly dropped for the following two years.

Also, from 2019 onwards there should’ve been even more hits as Google was sending through viewers external to WP. So I don’t know if this is more indicative of WP itself as a social platform just falling out of favour…

I didn’t need a graph to tell me that interaction on this website has died of dramatically though, it’s been plainly obvious.

I’m not really driven by stats but the simple fact is that I pay for a domain name which is (or was depending on when you read this) linked to this wordpress site.

Whilst I have always had the shop links on the menu they get very few click-action occurring so the answer here is obvious…

I’ll change http://www.stevekiddart.com to point towards my Etsy shop where hopefully it can receive more hits to make some sales to pay for the domain name and some new art materials once in a while.

So… if you currently go to stevekiddart.com to find this blog then may want to change your bookmark accordingly. This site is still linked on the Etsy shop so you can always find your way back to https://stevekiddart.wordpress.com/ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Meanwhile this site will be purely a blog for anyone that happens to still be on WordPress and interested in seeing how I make my art. I’ll admit it’s as much for my own record keeping rather than my Instagram posts which are more concise and often show just the end product.

Hope this make sense and if you’re one of the 1.25 people that still read this then hi ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
