Question For My Fellow WP Bloggers

For my fellow Word Press blogging friends (and those I haven’t met yet). What plan do you use? I am currently on the el-cheapo “Personal” plan. So my options are very limited. As such, I can’t use any plugins, which I would like to do. But the cost for the “Business” plan (the only plan that allows plugins) is almost 5 times what I’m paying now.

I think that if I upgraded to the Business plan, I could generate more traffic to the blog (of course if I had a real “theme” and not just random stuff it would help too).

So what are your thoughts?  Should I go for the more expensive plan, get a more cohesive theme or just stay as I am and see what happens? I feel the next plan up “Premium”, which is only about $3 more a month won’t give me the options I’m looking for. I’m not looking to “monetize” the site but allowing ads for friends blogs (we called it a “blogroll” way back in the day) would be helpful.

So what are your thoughts? Any suggestions (including shut-up and go back to drinking) will be accepted. For those that read this blog on a regular basis (both of you), do you see a direction I should focus on?

I originally thought this would be a “faith” (or lack thereof) blog. But I noticed my food posts were getting better hits, so I thought maybe that way (like there aren’t enough of either of those blogs). Now I find my travel and humor (as low brow as it is) seems to generate the most interest. But I want a different point of view.

So please leave comments, and be really honest. I’ve been married for almost 37 years, spent 20 years as an Army paramedic (and even for a short time served on a church staff). There are no names you can call me, nothing you make me do, nothing you can put on me (bodily fluids etc..) that I haven’t already experienced. As the saying goes, Been there, done that, no t-shirt was given.

Thanks for any suggestions,
B
